If you're the kind of person who thinks going out shooting wild animals would be cool, theoretically, but doesn't like the idea of hurting any poor actual animals, Cabela's Big Game Hunter is just the game you've been looking for. You can wander a beautifully rendered simulation of the real outdoors, from the warmth and comfort of your lounge. This latest game in the long running series is also the most realistic yet.

Along with the stunning scenery, there are new tactical elements to the game that let you choose your route to give a clearer shot, but with more chance of alerting your prey, or a path with a trickier shot, but better cover. So you'll need to use a combination of cunning, skill, and deception to avoid detection. It's not just the terrain you're battling either - the weather and other natural hazards make the hunt more challenging - so while you're concentrating on the site through your scope, don't stumble or fall.

A range of weapons is available, and you'll need to select the right one for the job, as a variety of game styles present different hunting objectives in terms of stealth and speed. There are a host of impressively realistic animals for you to get a bead on. Each animal presents a different hunting challenge. You'll need to learn to read their behaviour, to enable you to predict their moves.  

Big Game Hunter brings the thrill and suspense of hunting to your home console like never before.
