In This Deer Hunter Game, You Don't Play Russian Roulette. You Shoot Deer!

I've never been deer hunting. The words alone don't even evoke images of wearing orange vests and shooting animals, but, rather, images of Christopher Walkin playing Russian roulette. Oh yes, there is deer hunting in that movie, but I don't really remember it. Does anyone?

So going into Deer Hunter Reloaded, I was subconsciously expecting Bob De Niro and extra bullets, but instead, I got "the most REALISTIC and AUTHENTIC hunting sim". Those aren't my words — they aren't my caps, either. That's according to the folks who made Deer Hunter Reloaded.

I haven't played many hunting sims, so I'm not one to judge. But I was actually surprised at how nice this game looks. It even plays well with various modes; there's a stampede mode, a straight-up hunting mode with slow motion bullet effects, and there's even an x-ray mode that enables you "to target specific organs".

If you are not one to shudder about going into the forest and shooting Bambi with x-ray vision, this is worth checking out. There's a free version, too.

    Brian, did you notice that during the tutorial you have to shoot your first deer at near point blank range with a rifle?!

    I played this yesterday and felt kind of bad for shooting at animals. I mean, you can target their organs. This isn't what I'm used to on iOS. It's a good game and everything... and I love the arcade version, but this version makes me feel cruel!
