The Sikh temple massacre level in Hitman 2. Hot Coffee. Urinating in Conker. We’ve seen it all on Xbox, yet no one game has quite elected the same level of disbelief and horror as Cabela’s Alaskan Adventures, which encourages you whip out a rifle and fatally wound a lady caribou by shooting her right in front of her calves.

Yup, it’s Cabela’s Random Hunting Expedition time again, and this time we’re trotting around various parts of Alaska looking for innocent animals to murder. One thing we need to clarify before we go into details is that this isn’t the most technically accomplished game ever. It’s developed by a small Romanian company and does it ever show. Although the snow-topped levels meant the artists only had one texture to take care of, they still managed to mess it up, and your hunter’s gun/hand combo looks like it’s made from chewed-up bubblegum. Still, you can pick this up fairly cheapish - but a number of bugs persist in irritating, and the AI is totally bizarre. We’ve never shot at reindeer in real life, but if we did, we’re pretty sure they wouldn’t react by first flanking and then killing you.

    Hey everyone! I just redeemed a $50 PSN code from this website! I was a bit skeptical at first, but it worked out pretty well! Give it a try, you won't regret it! Have a nice day!
