The Game Review

The main goal of the game is to kill the animals. The world in which you will hunt is large, open and contains a huge amount of game. There are different species that behave in many different ways. To achieve positive results in the game, you will have to combine tactics with shooting FPS skills. Unlike other shooters out there, rushing things is not suggested, and meticulous patient tracking of your prey pays off.

There are many types of weapons available – pistols, rifles, and shotguns. Choosing the right tool is an important decision. Different animals, distances, and circumstances require individual approaches. The game features bears, deer, elks, and many other species. The whole hunting process is very well reproduced and resembles the real one. After shooting, you receive interesting stats like information about the place where the animal was shot or the distance of the shot.

The graphics of the game are very well done. You will be pleased to admire lush colors, shadows, and lighting. The models of animals and people are perfectly reproduced. There is also night and day. There are smooth transitions between the day and night and you can admire sunrise and sunset. It all creates the right atmosphere for hunting.

The game interface is quite innovative, and at the same time simple and intuitive. The in-game messages provide you with a lot of relevant info about the course of the game, for example about the weapon you use. The mechanics of the game are also advanced. Animals react in a believable way but they will often surprise acting in an unpredictable manner, just like in real life.

In theHunter: Call of the Wild, you will find dense thickets, trees, fields, and meadows. This vast and very diverse terrain together with highly detailed animal models makes a great impression. You can also play the game with friends, which adds even more fun.  theHunter: Call of the Wild is regularly updated and over time has received many DLCs. Some of them introduce new animals, like the Medved-Taiga DCS, others give you access to new weapons. For that grab  Weapon Pack, Shooting Range or Bearclaw Lite Compound. You will also be able to customize your hunters with Facing the Wild DLC. There are many more with extra features such as unlimited ammo.
