Redneck Deer Huntin' is a product by the same
people who brought us the previous "Redneck" titles, such as
Redneck Rampage and its sequel. Though these games had an
original and entertaining quality when they were born,
Redneck Deer Huntin' does not meet up to this integrity.
The game features the same graphics engine as
used previously. Interplay seems to believe that if you remove
the ugly, insipid, inbred "hicks" and replace them with wild
animals you have a sufficient "hunting" game. This is a terrible
misjudgment. Moreover, I have played the others such as Deer
Hunter and Rocky Mountain Trophy Hunter and found Redneck
Deer Huntin' to be of the worst kind. There was no extent to
how much I wished to cease this game, as it did not interest
me in any way after about five minutes of game play.
The level design periodically consists of a hallway
feel, as the hunting grounds are narrow and long. The graphics
are nothing at all even standard as compared to other games
today and you may notice this by the bleak and pixilated
images viewed in the screenshots. The gameplay is another
unsatisfactory area. You are placed in small areas
camouflaged by trees, which are all identical in arrangement,
and you are then expected to undergo the search for a
trophy-sized animal in a very uninteresting method.
Furthermore, throughout this process you are manipulated to
have a sense of realism by repeating sounds of the wild. You
also hear the odd statement by your inborn character, mostly
complaining about his surroundings.
If you do not wish to hunt you can experience the
invariability of shooting at moving targets at the shooting
ranges. Of the two methods, you have the option of choosing
which weapon you desire to hunt with. This includes a
revolver, a rifle with or without a mounted scope, a shotgun,
and a crossbow. Experimenting with which weapon you prefer
is most probably the only interesting area of the game.
Moreover, when you finally set out to chase down an animal,
enjoy listening to your own footsteps for quite a period, as the
"hunting" process is either quite difficult or just simply stupidly
designed. If you actually get an animal in your site, even from
a vast distance, it will often run away without the chance of
landing a shot.
I understand that hunting games are quite popular,
and if you are fanatic "digital" hunter, you may wish to go for
Redneck Deer Huntin', however I do strongly recommend you
do not waste your time. There are other more pleasing hunting
titles to pick up. In contrast, if you are just a gamer looking for
a title which will satisfy your gaming needs, this product should
not even appeal to you. Likewise, if you are just a "Redneck"
wantin' to pick yurself up a gun like back home on the farm
and getch ya' some chiken skin, go for this one ya'll.
