Deer Avenger 4: The Rednecks Strike Back
Hunting games enjoy quite the popularity among the enthusiasts, especially since graphics are now able to accurately depict animals in all their grace. The Deer Avenger series, on the other hand, has a completely different view on the subject, by giving the animals the power to fight back and get the upper hand on the hunters.
Get the hunter before he gets you
Deer Avenger 4: The Rednecks Strike Back allows you to play as a very well trained buck, that is heavily equipped with everything needed to organize an ambush for the hunters who are after his antlers. Thus, using various types of bait and a large array of weapons, you can turn the fight in your favor and get some well-deserved justice for a change.
What makes the game worth it, though, is the brilliant humor it employs to make the already ridiculous situation even more insane. Since the deer you play as is able to talk, he is always spitting offensive one-liners toward the hunters who are after him, as well as make use of various funny gimmicks to lay traps and lures. In addition, just like hunters use mating calls to attract the deer, you can also do the same, only by shouting clever jokes meant to sparkle the curiosity of a certain type of people.
Action-oriented gameplay mechanics
If in classic hunting games you must move silently and avoid alerting the animals of your presence, this is definitely not the case in the title at hand. In fact, you are trying you best to attract attention, in order to help the hunters find you more quickly and start shooting at you. You can, however, follow certain trails they leave behind, such as campfires, toilet paper and beer cans, which should lead you directly to them.
The graphics quality may not be the most incredible out there, but you do not get too much time to admire it anyway, thanks to the captivating action taking place in the game. The voice acting is very well done, though, especially for the main character, which has the most dialog anyway. Thus, all of these elements make for a very entertaining experience, that can keep you invested into the game for hours at end.
A different take on the hunting genre
In the end, Deer Avenger 4: The Rednecks Strike Back features a lot of action and a lot of humorous situations that keep you entertained throughout the gameplay. Hence, even if you are not into this type of games, this title is worth a try nonetheless.
