Finally, multiplayer online hunting games are getting the attention and support they deserve. Mix ½ first person shooter and ½ strategic sniper simulation; add few of your friends from across the country and you’ve got fun at a reasonable pace. Here are some of the top online hunting titles available today.
Deer Hunter Tournament – Online Big Game Hunting With Your Friends
It’s age is beginning to show, but it’s servers are still full of virtual friends for you to hunt with and although there are a ton of online hunting titles to choose from; this is one of the few that allow you to stalk big game with your friends.
The Hunter – The Next Generation of Online Hunters
Unlike football and first person shooters, hunting game enthusiasts don’t get a new 5 star title every Christmas season. Enter The Hunter, a true next generation title with gorgeous graphics, an immersive environment of beautiful landscapes and natural sound effects. The animations are as smooth as the latest FPS’s at retail, and best of all – it’s a free download. You’ll start the game hunting Mule deer and be given the option to purchase licenses for different types of game. The online community is strong and you’ll definitely feel as if your part of the community.
Deer Drive – Online and Offline Multiplayer Action
Deer Drive is not a true hunting simulation as much as an online party game for friends and strangers alike. Still, it’s fun and unlike traditional deer hunting sim’s, you pick it up and play it. No micro-management required, and no need to camp and search for game. This a great game for those hunting enthusiasts who are too pressed for time to indulge their virtual critter killing needs.
Keep a special lookout for an upcoming release called Hunters World, which promises to be the worlds first hunting MMO. Currently in closed beta Hunters World promises to take hunting games to the next level, with thousands of players online at the same time, hunting guilds, cities, and 4WD trucks to haul your bagged buck to the market.
