The Hunter is a realistic experience that brings the pastoral straight to your screen. Combined efforts from Avalanche Studios and Emote Games have successfully captured a stunning paradise. Fused with an assortment of sounds and a sand box style of play, you’ll feel as though you’re living in a poem from John Milton.
Players depend on a wide variety of tools, including the renowned Hunter Mate, to stalk and harvest their prey. Aside from the weapons, gamers will have to use their own intuition, deception and natural abilities if they want to mantle a 12 point buck over the fireplace. Move over Duck Hunt because hunting is not restricted to eight bit graphics any longer.
What captures the player right from the start is the realism within the game. Players will begin by registering for an account through thehunter.com. This acts as a player’s domain where he or she will be able to accept missions, talk to other players, receive help, track progression and learn about a whole plethora of other goodies. Also, this is the access point to the game. From here players will choose from an assortment of clothes, weapons and tools.
Once the game begins, players will start from one of two areas and traverse through a vast area inspired by Washington’s forests. Thousands of trees dominate the area, and it’s your duty to sift through the brush. You’ll have to crawl through high weeds and find cover on open shores. If you fail to do so then you’ll be wandering around aimlessly for hours on end following the random droppings and chasing after an endless trail of tracks left from the most elusive deer.
