Summary

An unique simulation game that gives insight in perhaps one of the most misunderstood creatures in the world today.

The Good

1. Excellent animation of the wolves and other creatures. 2. Music sounds as mysterious as the wolves themselves. The CD-ROM version has red-book audio. 3. Sound effects accurately captures the feeling of life in the wild. 4. Game also comes with info about real wolves. 5. Chasing after large prey with the whole pack is one of the highlights in the game.

The Bad

1. It can get a tad boring at times when you're not hungry and there's no present danger. 2. Mating is rather difficult to achieve. 3. There are no other predators in the game to compete with. More variety would be nice, like bears, cougars and foxes. 4. It's nearly impossible to escape from men once they have you in their sights, but if you're careful, this isn't much of an issue.

The Bottom Line

There have been other wolf simulations that have come out since then, but none of them have come close to Sanctuary Woods' realistic portrayal of the wolf. This is a must-have for all wolf fans.
