Deer Hunter 2014 Review – The Most Realistic Co-op Hunting Experience on Mobile

If you open the App Store and search for Deer Hunter, you will find dozens of titles that are almost identical to each other with its subtitle slightly changed. For example, Deer Hunter Challenge, Deer Hunter Reloaded, Deer Hunter African Safari and so on.  Over the years, the widely prevailing hunting franchise Deer Hunter has embraced one after another entries that can be deemed as competent followers, but none as ground-breaking creation. It’s not until the coming of Deer Hunter 2014 that my opinion has totally changed, not because of the whole new set of weapons or exotic hunting grounds it renders, but for the multiplayer co-op hunting play mode it creates.

As with all other Deer Hunter titles, your task in Deer Hunter 2014 is to take up your weapon and head out to the wild to hunt animals. You will journey to North America’s Pacific Northwest, the savannas of Central Africa, and the forests of British Columbia to hunt deer, elk, bears, moose, wolves and more. The environments are immersive and rendered with improved graphics, and the types of animals are three times as many as in Deer Hunter Reloaded.

There is a variety of weapons to pick up too, from traditional hunting rifles, to pistols, shotguns, and even assault rifles, each with their own hunt types. The performance of these weapons can be improved by a host of upgrades. For example, you may use these upgrades to improve your sights, boost the firepower of your shots, or just make the gun a little more stable so that it’s easier to line up your shot. These upgrades get more expensive as game progresses, so if you don’t have the patience to grind for the money, you will have to dump some real bucks to get an edge the first time you enter a hunting ground. Aside from that, the game also monetizes via the application of an energy meter, which refills over time and set a limit on your game activity.

The fun actually begins when you take on the multiplayer challenges. Deer Hunter 2014 is the first game utilizing GluOn, Glu Mobile’s centralized technology that allows players to join multiplayer co-op Club Hunts. Group goals require many players of working together, but the payouts are earned by all! But I guess no one would care about the payouts here, it’s the team cooperation and joint hunting fun that really keep us addicted and coming back time and again.

Putting the concerns for animals aside, I’m pretty comfortable to say that Deer Hunter 2014 is the best hunting game on mobile devices over the years. The first person shooting mechanic is no different from a whole lot of other sniper shooters. But the concept of animal hunting, added with the ingenious co-op gameplay, is not only attractive, but also filled with content that we can dive into and have fun with.

  1. You can’t see anything with the Infrared Scope on the Majestic Moose in BC’s Trophy Hunt, just a dark opaque silhouette… nearly impossible to get a heart shot…is that intentional?

  2. Purchased club hunt permit…no way to club hunt. Seems like a lot of people are having the same problem…either make it accessible or we need a refund I say…

    I would like a full refund please. Unacceptable that you are selling something with no mention that the launch date is TBD. Surprised Apple allows you to do so. Please refund my purchase. There are a lot of people with the same question. Post your answer on your website. Very shady business practice

  5. Agreed its crap to allow you to do soemthing they haven’t built. An answer from them would be good so we know we haven’t wasted our money.if they don’t I can see a lot of people posting negative feedback. Their forum has no answers either

  6. I went to I-Tunes support and reported this issue to them and requested a refund. After entering why I needed a refund, it immediately advised that the hunt club purchase was eligible for a refund and I submitted for it. The refund is pending. It was a pretty easy process and advised it would be refunded within 5 -7 days.

  7. How do u get past level 5 (Alaska)? The last trophy hunt requires 99 per cent stability but it is impossible to get it that high even with all the upgrades. Even tho the rifle I have is supposedly level 6! Very frustrating, please help.
