I don’t approve the hunting of animals, unless it’s done on a mobile device, like your Windows 8 or Windows 10 tablet. Microsoft’s Big Buck Hunter is the best Windows 8, 10 hunting game to play at the moment and is available in the Windows Store. More details below.

Just a few moments ago, I was telling you about the Field & Stream Fishing game for Windows 8, 10 users, and somebody has asked me to review also a cool Windows 8, 10 hunting game. Well, if you’re passionate about hunting games or if you hunt animals for real (which I hope you don’t), then you need to download and install Big Buck Hunter (download link at the end).

This is the best Windows 10, 8 hunting game

If you will go right now in the Windows Store, I am telling you that this is the best Windows 8, 10 game that is also optimized for the touch user interface. Let’s have a closer look at the game’s features.

Big Buck Hunter Pro Adventure brings the number one arcade hunting game to Windows 8 in a fresh new format. Big Buck Hunter Pro Adventure features the brand new Adventure Mode where players embark on their own custom hunting vacation across 18 different locations across North America. The engaging and casual shooting interface is a proven winner with brand recognition at the head of the pack.

True, you can’t compare Big Buck Hunter with other games that are designed especially for computers, such as the Cabela series or many others, but for its purposes, Big Buck Hunter is a pretty cool hunting game to be enjoyed.

Inside the game, you will be able to hunt in 18 different locations across North America and you will be able to explore 6 hunting adventures with more 300 scenarios featuring gorgeous whitetail deer, elk, moose, sheep, antelope, and caribou.

The game has an Adventure Mode with hunting challenges that are really awesome. The game has good graphics and you can also compete with your Xbox friends for the Hunter Hero badge. Fill your Trophy Room and become the ultimate hunter. The game can be bought for $4.99 but you can first try the free trial to see if it’s worth the money or not.

The game is now at version 2.1 and the latest update fixed minor bugs. The game is really enjoyed by many users, for the fun of it, not for the shooting skills that Counterstrike would develop. Enjoy the hunting, and remember to buy something for dinner as what you capped on screen doesn’t come on your plate.

We’re looking forward to hearing back from your hunting experience (even the real hunting stories). Feel free to leave us a comment in the box below. And if you’re interested in some more games, here are some good articles to check out now:
