What It Is

The No. 1 arcade hunting game Big Buck Hunter Pro has been a hit in Jakks Pacific's Plug It In & Play TV Games lineup. Now Jakks, along with Play Mechanix, is bringing the game to the Nintendo Wii. With a custom pump-action shotgun peripheral, point and shoot your way to become the next Hunter Hero. There are more than 75 different action-packed hunting adventures and five fast-paced Treks packed with unique wildlife and big game. Each Trek is made up of three locations where you adventure through five different hunting spots. There are even 15 fast-paced mini games, just like the original arcade game. Play with up to four players in a turned-based game, or go head-to-head against a friend in Shootout Mode.

The custom pump-action shotgun controller works with the Wii Remote and Nunchuk, offering a realistic shotgun experience. However, the controller is designed so that it looks like a video game controller and not a real gun.

In addition, the Big Buck Hunter Pro TV Games Plug It In & Play TV Games edition returns with a two-gun version for head-to-head competition. Dozens of hunting treks and mini games are all packed into this pump-action shotgun controller that plugs right into your TV, no video game console or software required.

These games aren't going to be a hit (no pun intended) with everyone. These are hunting games and if you're not okay with that, then these are not games for you. However, hunting is a popular sport for many people, and the sophistication and responsiveness of the Big Buck Hunter Pro TV Games version made it a success among that demographic. If you like hunting, these games belong in your rec room.
