We have just posted our Cabela’s Alaskan Adventures review. Find out what Clay Shaver had to say about it.
"I’m still puzzled at where exactly my love for sports came from. As far back as I can remember, I was playing something; even if it was baseball with a rolled-up sock and an old chair leg. I started Little League at four. I played my first year of tackle football at seven, by which time I had already worked in a season of basketball and two of soccer. I was a sports junkie as a kid. But what always struck me as strange was that my parents were not. Not even close.

My mom never liked sports. She was a cheerleader in high school, but that was for status, not sport. I can count on one hand the number of games that she attended in my life. It just wasn’t her scene. Even stranger to me was that my dad was the same way. My dad was not the typical dad that sat down with a “sixer” on Sundays and watched the game. He didn’t go to Opening Day. He didn’t have a team. He didn’t even watch the Super Bowl! It’s only since he retired that he rediscovered golf, a sport that he dabbled in a little in his time in the Navy during Vietnam. But, my dad always considered himself a sportsman. In fact, he considered himself the ultimate sportsman. He was a hunter. He’ll even go as far as to say that he is the hunter. I remember him telling me a few years back that he's so good, that when he draws his bow, his freezer clicks on.

That’s my dad.

That’s not me."

Dang man. I kept on hearing great things about what this game could be within my head. All I could think about was how great the XBOX 360 could be in giving the developer more power at their fingertips to bring better A.I., better experiences, better graphics and atmosphere. Then I read your joint and it just turns me the heck off. I really was looking forward to getting into the franchise on my 360 seeing that it's the only one that I can play it on. Real depressing too because I'm not even into hunting like that. Good review. I wish that some companies would take more timeout and research more about the sports they are going to be portraying within games. Ridiculous how a lot of these companies don't take the greatest measures to understand the depth of a game. Go figure.

......when he draws his bow, his freezer clicks on.

edit: I think the picture of the bear has the paws on the wrong foot?!?
