Cabela's Big Game Hunter: Ultimate Challenge is the first hunting simulation for PlayStation, and is designed to provide a satisfying hunting simulation for beginners and experts alike. It offers a wide variety of prey and a realistic presentation of nature, weather, animal intelligence, and hunter statistics. Views include first- and third-person. Environments include ground cover, trees, shrubs, rivers, lakes, and distant views of mountains and lakes. Maps show the hunting area, as well as your vehicle, campsite, lodge, and marker locations. The two modes of play are Championship Hunt, which lets you compete in several championships for deer, elk, caribou, and more, and North American Professional Hunt, which lets you join forces with the Department of Natural Resources to take down dangerous animals such as bear, wild boar, and wolves.
