This game was really fun back when I first got it in September, and I was extremely addicted to it. But, after a few months, I started to get bored with it. It was really exciting at first when a new area came out, but after a few of them, it was hard to keep up with the new areas if I didn't play all the time. When they say 'travel from the Pacific Northwest to Africa, they weren't kidding. All the hunts are just different areas within these two locations. The game is fun to start out, but soon becomes repetitive and boring. I'd often find myself playing for a few minutes, letting my energy recharge, and then playing again until it ran out, etc for hours. The guns become horribly overpriced, and hours of gameplay are required to get anywhere. I never felt the game was forcing me to pay real money for items, but it was becoming more of a chore than an actual game the longer I played. It would be fun if you were able to move around and do stuff instead of just camp in one spot and shoot endless herds of animals on only two continents. So, to conclude my rambling, this is a fun game, but the fun just doesn't really last. I'm not discouraging anyone from downloading it, but just don't expect a whole lot out of it. As far as hunting games go, it is good, similar to Big Buck Hunter, but it is extremely repetitive. You will most likely enjoy it, but there will be a time when you just need to let it go and move on.
A lot of fun, but drags
Deer Hunter '14 offers a quick fix for shooting animals. True, it's not a "hunting" game in the traditional sense of hunting. But it does provide a simple to learn time waster. I've had a lot of fun upgrading my weapons and playing some of the more challenging levels, but it starts to get monotonous as you're literally doing the same things over and over again just with different animals, different quantities, and different locales. Then, once you've used all your energy you have to wait 10 minutes for one bar to fill. Gold is easy enough to get, you really don't need to spend real money because you can watch a 15-30 second video you'll get a bar of gold with no limit. My biggest pet peeve is the constant checking for updates. Seems like it'll check when you first open the app, then you go to respond to a text and return to the app and it has to check once again for updates. I've yet to see it actually tell me there's an update, especially in the 30 seconds I took away from the app. The developers could do away with that or at least limit it to once a day (honestly, how many updates do they expect to put out in a single day?). Love the game for what it is, but some improvements could definitely and easily be made.
Paying to speed up the game - reaching my end point!
I doubt this corporation will ever lay eyes on my issue but, I feel it is a must that I say what many think. If not to request change, than to inspire change. For we are all accomplices in our inability to point out the wrong with things we see. For me, I will follow my belief in a fair and equal system.
I love "Deer Hunter", played it in the arcades as a kid and when you came to "I" devices... I was Thrilled! But, it seems like this game has now become a business and when it starts feeling like I'm receiving joy by someone nickel and diming me, it's not long before I call the game, OVER.
I don't think you should be charging people to have the game go to the next animal once you've killed the previous. If you charge a boredom fee for moving things along, your game has lost its mojo. Technology is advanced enough where we should not have to wait for anything in a game.
If you are unable, unwilling or any other to remove the boredom fee from your game by the next update, I will remove it on my devices by deleting your App and I assume others feel this way too.
I've been a fan to long for it to be wrecked now because of corporate greed. Save your money to by your nearly 16 year old daughter her first new BMW or Audi, don't charge me for it.
