With Browning African Safari , however, I envisioned a game where the animals fight back. If you miss and the animal lunges at you, chances are you will get mauled. This would be cool heh-heh — ed. This would be a game worth playing. Problem is, it just isn’t Browning African Safari. Browning is among the last of the first generation hunting games. All the rest have gone 3D. This one is still stuck in the land of the two-dimensional panorama, so the whole concept of being hunted by animals is tossed out the window.
Either they come at you from the front or from the rear your guide gives you a warning. You do get to do the complete degrees, but this is small consolation. The game sets up a lot like Cabela’s Big Game Hunter II which Ed skewered recently in his review: “this game deserves a trash award from the very first spelling mistake in the dialog to the lame hunting engine”.
You are a big game hunter sponsored by a museum to go stock its shelves full of African skins. You then choose your guide either a man or a woman, though it doesn’t matter which one you pick as both are as useless. After the rigorous selection process, you’re off to Africa seven grand is deducted each time you go, which apparently covers airfare, lodging, ground transportation, and food.
Once in Africa, you go to a local supply hut and buy the items you need. You can choose from three weapons — a odd- 6, a. Essential items for your survival are sunscreen, mosquito repellant, bullets, a canteen, malaria pills which generally make you as sick as malaria does in the real world, by the way — your well-travelled ed. You will also need a hunting guidebook and binoculars. You only have to purchase the clothing and your weapons once, but the rest you have to replenish every so often.
You can also buy some African art to take back home and sell to the museum and make a little money that way though obviously the big bucks are in the skins. The bulk of the items are there to help you survive the harsh African climate.
Browning includes a health meter that represents your health hence its name. Get dehydrated, and if you have no water, you die.
Same with sunstroke, malaria, mosquito bites, etc. Functionally, the bar is useless, as if I am out of water and my health is low, I can just magically pop back to the lodge and replenish it.
All I lose is about five or six minutes of time. There are eight hunting locations to choose from and you access these by a cartoon map. It would have been different if choosing a location meant being there that day. But you can pop around from location to location with zero penalties.
This eliminates any strategic choices involved in hunting the big game. Since you don’t really need to be prepared, this also reduces the health bar to the status of useless appendage.
Once hunting, the 2D experience is a huge step backward from even the extreme pixellation of Deer Hunter II. There is a pretty 2D map that you look at, and then use your mouse to turn round and round until you sense movement. You then shoot depending on what it is of course a 3D picture. This game would have been so much better if you could stalk your prey and it could stalk you.
If you shoot the wrong thing or too many of something, you go to jail and game over. Interesting concept and it comes off fairly well. What doesn’t come off well is this idea that the animals are dangerous. They are not. First off, they don’t come close enough to you to make it a problem.
Second, if they do, you shoot them. Either they drop with the second shot, or they drop on the third. Of course, if you miss, you die. Them’s the breaks. But, since the animals charge straight at you, it’s pretty damn hard to miss the second time, especially since the animal takes up half of the screen.
There is no guidance as to when the best time to hang out by the waterhole might be, or when zebras tend to take a dump in the woods this, I believe would be the ideal time to kill them, kinda like getting those action pose hockey cards. It’s basically guesswork, which becomes a joke since you can pop between locations with zero penalties and zero time lost.
There is a health meter, but since you can beam back to the hut to get replenished, the health bar is irrelevant if your health grows too low you just rest until the next day.
All in all, Browning African Safari is a game released a year late. Had it come out last fall alongside Deer Hunter , this title would’ve been warmly received. As it is now, it is –like much within the game — irrelevant. Carl 0 point. ZoemDoef 0 point. I like this game, played it years ago and recently re-dicovered it. There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. Verified Purchase. This is a fantastic CD if you have a junior sportsman living at your house!
My nine and seven year old love playing this game. It actually has some educational skills built into it and it’s loads of fun. There’s an element of wise money managing to it because throughout the game one must make decisions on spending money on weapons and gear to “get the big kill” or buy trophy items at the “hut” which they can sell back in the states for a profit to use for more hunts. I’m very happy with this CD.
I can’t imagine how much better the deluxe version is! I think it’d put my kids in emotional overload they’d be so excited! I keep a old windows 98 laptop just to play old games from my childhood. My original disc is long gone probably.
I think its kind of funny though how expensive this game is now. My mother bought me it for Christmas from a bargain bin at Cabelas because I played the original version of the game. Truth be told that was my favourite present that year. Then again I was a kid of simple needs. This game totally fit with my tomboyish personality and taught me the value of the all mighty dollar. And, how you can bribe governments to turn a blind eye and destroying their natural resources for some blood money.
This game teaches you that you can legitimize anything for the right amount of money a valuable lesson that I carry to adulthood. Btw if you can’t sense the sarcasm in this entry you’re a twit and I wouldn’t trust you with a computer gun. See all reviews.
