Big Buck Hunter Pro: Because you need another motion-controlled TV game
by Mark R
If you’re smart, then your sarcasm detector should have gone off when you read the headline. So, maybe you don’t need another motion-controlled game, but I’m not certain if there is a Deer Hunter game designed for the Wii.
After all, it seems like every video arcade today has Dance Dance Revolution and some deer hunting game that looks like the one the man in the photo is holding. They also have some other classic stand-ups like Pac-man, Dig Dug, but they are sadly a pale remnant of a bygone video arcade era.
Yes, the home consoles probably killed those classic games, and so it is natural to want to create a home version of this deer-hunting game. This one works with a battery powered rifle and sensor bar, with all the software needed to run on your television built in. Yes, Big Buck Hunter Pro is not for the Wii, Xbox 360, or PS3.
Keep in mind the it does have a Teen rating, due to the realistic portrayal of deer meeting the fate of Bambi’s mom. I’m sure there are many out there who would refuse to buy this game because they refuse to be associated with hunting, but you should probably remove all other First Person Shooter games if that is the case.
Okay, I’d better step off my soapbox. You should be able to get the Jakks Big Buck Hunter Pro for about $49.95.
