As I’ve pointed out numerous times, Open Season’s only true flaw is its lack of replay value. You’ll find the Story Mode interesting the first time, but after that, it’s just about getting the achievements you may have missed at that point. From a one-night stand perspective, Open Season is a great, refreshing game in the company of poor movie-to-game translations, and is an overall treat to fans of the movie and Sony Pictures’ writing and art style, and anyone with a remote sense of humor. Unlike some other easy 1000’s, you’ll actually enjoy this game. Definitely worth a rental, there’s no doubt about that.

Open Season is one of this gaming season's most pleasant surprises - a game of a kids' CGI film that isn't a total sell out. The gameplay is varied and has been carefully constructed for maximum fun and humour, the script and voice acting match the film throughout the entire game and the graphics are closer to being an interactive version of a film than ever before, showing the amount of effort that went into this title's development. Despite its short length, a hazard of most movie tie-ins, Open Season's gently paced fun is perfect for kids, and fans of the film will absolutely lap it up, although adults should approach with more caution - a weekend rental for some mild entertainment and easy gamer points is all that older gamers will find here, but even so you should still enjoy it while it lasts.

All in all I liked Open Season for what it is, and entertaining “Everyone” title that broke away form the norm showing that movie to game titles don’t need to be cookie cutter and can be fun for not only younger gamers, but adults also. I seem to never get tired of riding an outhouse down raging rapids, call me silly.

The only issue with Open Season is the linear and repetitive nature of the levels. Although the Alaskan tundra is a distinctive setting, the game mechanics oscillate between collecting missions and roller-coaster simulations. Running Boog through too-similar environments, no matter how good they may look, is unfulfilling. Luckily, the movie-familiar characters that Boog meets along the way prevent tedium and bring the forest animals' concerns, demands, and personalities to each unique situation; the game's 125 film-based missions play through very quickly.

Open Season may be too simplistic for seasoned gamers, but this cross-console release is the perfect kid-friendly tie-in for a family film.

The odd couple of Elliot and Boog (a crazy mule deer and a 900-pound Grizzly bear, respectively) team up with woodland creatures to form a ragtag army against hunters and survive "open season." With the aid of dozens of forest denizens, they hope to reach their ultimate goal: Boog's return home. Martin Lawrence and Ashton Kutcher reprise their lead roles in the game, and the original soundtrack from the film completes the cinematic experience. Open Season may be too simplistic for seasoned gamers, but this cross-console release is the perfect kid-friendly tie-in for a family film.

Knuffig sind sie schon, die kleinen Baumbeißer. Vor allem Kowalski, der sich an einer Granitplatte die Zähne ausgebissen hat und fortan mit einem Spielzeuggebiss nagt. Aber auch Boog und Elliot sind mir ans Herz gewachsen. Weil sie nicht nur klasse aussehen und animiert sind, sondern auch immer lustige Kommentare vom Stapel lassen. Doof, dass das Erschrecken der Jäger aber ziemlich schnell ziemlich öde wird. Eine Wildwasserfahrt hier und da kann meine Langeweile nicht vertreiben.

Passend zum Kinostart des gleichnamigen Films am 9. November bringt Ubisoft Jagdfieber in den Handel. Immer auf der Hut vor Jägern, müssen Sie grob den Film um Bär Boog und Hirsch Elliot nachspielen und in die Stadt zurückkehren, nachdem diese in der Wildnis ausgesetzt wurden.

Auf den ersten Blick macht Jagdfieber nicht viel her, doch je länger man das Game zockt, desto mehr Spaß kommt auf. Ständig entdeckt man Neues bei der Pirsch durch den Wald. Die anfänglich ungenaue Wii-Steuerung funktioniert im fortgeschrittenen Spiel besser und die Aufgaben werden interessanter. Obwohl es eigentlich kaum etwas anderes zu tun gibt, als Jäger zu vergraulen, konnte ich mich schwer dem charmanten Stil entziehen.

"Jagdfieber" ist ein buchstäbliches Zielgruppenspiel für die jüngere Klientel. Der Spielwitz wiegt das Abenteuer bis zum Abspann hindurch, die liebevoll designte Spielwelt wird auch den Älteren gefallen. Leider ist der Schwierigkeitsgrad insgesamt zu niedrig ausgefallen, selbst die zusätzlichen - storyunabhängigen - Minispiele sind keine Herausforderung auf lange Sicht. Nichtsdestotrotz kann man von der gesamten "Jagdfieber"-Spielepalette behaupten, dass es sich um eine wirklich ansprechende Umsetzungsserie handelt, die in der heutigen Zeit leider viel zu selten auf den Konsolen dieser Welt Einzug findet. Wenn diese Spiele zukünftig auch vom Schwierigkeitsgrad her herausfordernder sein werden, besteht durchaus die Möglichkeit, eine klare Empfehlung für die älteren Semester auszusprechen. Für alle Jüngeren ein optimales Weihnachtsgeschenk!

While I usually dislike movies that release games concurrently to take advantage of popularity, Open Season is the exception to the rule. Perhaps the fact that it was animated may have allowed for a simpler transition to a gaming format. This is an enjoyable children's game which probably won't sell well on the Xbox 360, even to point-thirsty achievement addicts. I recommend this game to parents with kids who enjoyed the Open Season movie or to achievement junkies looking for their next fix. It's worth a purchase for young children when the Xbox 360 price falls to the $25 to $35 range. Adults should give it a rent, as it takes less than six hours to fully complete.

As Open Season shows, the search for a kids movie game that appeals just as much to parents as it does to little ones proves to be an elusive one. Sub-par controls and by-the-numbers gameplay aside, this one is still worth a purchase if A) you're buying strictly for your child or B) you're looking for an easy 1000 achievement points.

Ich mag Filmversoftungen und hatte schon mit Ab durch die Hecke und Ice Age 2 jede Menge Freude. Bei Jagdfieber schraubt Ubisoft den spielerischen Anspruch allerdings auf ein Minimum herab und nimmt dem Titel die Existenzgrundlage für ältere Zockersemester. Für Kinder und jugendliche Fans des Films ist Jagdfieber aber nicht zuletzt aufgrund der witzigen Story und der liebevollen Charaktere genau der richtige Abenteuerspaß zum Weihnachtsfest.

Ja, Boogs und Elliots Abenteuer ist sehr kurz, unglaublich linear, extrem einfach, im Mehrspielermodus völlig Banane und auf der 360 total überteuert. Zudem nutzt sich das im Mittelpunkt stehende Objektsuchen und Jägererschrecken mit der Zeit rasch ab. Für Kids und blutige Anfänger, die das Szenario mögen, ist Jagdfieber aber dennoch ein durchaus empfehlenswerter Titel: Der Preis ist fair, die Lokalisierung vorbildlich, Frustmomente sind Mangelware und die Präsentation ist humorvoll und charmant. Zudem wird der Spielverlauf immer wieder durch amüsante Intermezzi wie Stachelschweine Schleudern, Minenachterbahn oder Plumpsklo-Rafting aufgelockert. Schade nur, dass man bereits nach wenigen Stunden am Ziel ist und sich anschließend nur noch mit dem leidlich spannenden Sammeln verpasster Bonusitems und nahezu völlig spaßfreien Minispielen beschäftigen kann.

In den USA hat Jagdfieber innerhalb kürzester Zeit die Spitze der Kinocharts erklommen, bei uns startete der Streifen am 9. November. Das gleichnamige Jump & Run zum Film steht bereits seit 31. Oktober in den deutschen Läden. Sie steuern den verwöhnten Bären Boog und den ständig in Schwierigkeiten geratenden Hirsch Elliot. Nach einem gemeinsamen Raubzug durch den lokalen Supermarkt von Timberline schiebt man die Kollegen in den Wald ab. Dort lauern allerlei Gefahren, etwa die zunächst feindlich gesinnte Eichhörnchenarmee oder Stinktiere.

There is nothing at all wrong with Ubisoft's Open Season; it's a technically competent, well produced adventure game designed for kids, and is a game they will probably love. It does its source material justice, is cute and charming, and despite being fairly short, should provide younger players with enough of a challenge to be fun. But this isn't one of those games that adults and serious gamers will enjoy as well, unless they love incredibly simple games or cheap and easy Gamerscore points and Achievements.

As a children’s title that’s meant to compliment the theatrical release of Open Season, the game fulfills its mission of snagging shelf space, while still managing to throw in some entertaining moments into the mix. The comedy, while basic, actually had us laughing a few times through the game, and even though the story and character designs from the film are amazingly cookie-cutter, the game offers a few high points for anyone with little tikes in desperate need of some gaming goodness to go with the afternoon flick. Still, the game doesn’t have the polish necessary to really recommend it to anyone aside from Open Season fanatics, and we’d still stand by a rental as opposed to dropping full price for the game. With a few multiplayer events and some decent gameplay mechanics, the game should last a younger player anywhere from 10-15 hours. Just don’t expect too much more than the single player adventure.

Boog ist ein herziges Kerlchen, das man einfach drücken will, so herrlich tapsig ist es. Elliot ist angenehm durchgeknallt. Und wenn Stinktierpärchen das Berlinern beginnen, ist Grinsen nicht zu vermeiden. Jedoch sind die Spielchen für Erwachsene wenig fordernd, und vom lustigen Drumherum allein wird man nicht satt. Aber Jagdfieber ist ideal, um sich mit den Kleinen vor den PC zu hocken und ihnen eine Weile beim Spielen zuzuschauen. Ich überlege, ob ich Jagdfieber nicht selber Jungverwandten zu Weihnachten unter den Baum lege.

Open Season does have some entertaining scenarios in the game, but only in the minority. The majority of the game’s levels do feel repetitive. If you like to get some easy achievements from the game, then these can easily be attained. Finding some of the hidden items requires more effort than others and finding some of the other hidden items can become very boring as you explore the rather dull looking environments. This game I’m sure will be more popular with the kids as it is relatively easy to get into with some entertaining levels – although those are few and far between though I’m afraid.

Open Season is an average game based on another kid's animated movie. Fans of the movie should find some enjoyment in Ubisoft adaptation; other might want to skip this one. If you're not into the movie or cute fuzzy forest animals then Open Season doesn't offer up much to the causal gamer, especially with the voice mimic talent they found for the production. If I had to choose I'd grab the Xbox version for the lower price and save the other cash to see the movie in the theater.

Open Season fails to capture the fun and adventure seen on the big screen and offers a simplistic platform game that becomes boring way too quickly. Even for the game’s target audience the game will get too repetitive and the novelty of playing a big loveable bear just isn’t enough to save the game from its stale gameplay. While the multiplayer mode and the tons of collectibles will keep fans busy, there isn’t much here to warrant the purchase price. Rent this one if you liked the movie but if you absolutely want a good game version of Open Season, I suggest you buy far superior Nintendo DS version instead.

Vanuit een perspectief van een volwassene is het moeilijk om te begrijpen wat een kind leuk vindt. Dit is ook het geval voor games. En nu is het aan mij de taak gelegen om Baas in Eigen Bos (Open Season) te bekijken, met de eisen van een kind (jeetje, wat klink ik toch ouderwets) in mijn achterhoofd. Maar aangezien ik in mijn ontwikkeling nog niet zo ver van mijn kindertijd af sta, denk ik dat enig inlevingsvermogen nog wel op te roepen is.

Ultimately, it's hard to imagine anyone having a good time with this version of Open Season. The action is repetitive and dull, almost to the point of coming across as patronizing, and it takes forever for levels to come along that let you make use of all of Boog's abilities. Added to that, the overall presentation falls so flat that the game never comes close to capturing one iota of the whimsy that even the commercials promoting the film had.

The main problem with the game is that each puzzle or task is explained too thoroughly at the start of the mission. Instead of letting you figure out the solution, the instructions specifically spell out what to do from the start, taking the fun out of discovering the answer for yourself. Because of this, completing each task feels unrewarding at best. After a few "adventures," following each specific set of instructions feels more tedious than fun. The layout of the game requires so little interaction that it's easy to become apathetic to your easily won victories.
50
PlayStation 2Games Radar
At times, the gameplay is so linear and there are so many cut scenes that it feels more like watching a movie than playing a game. The action pauses so frequently to remind you how to excute your task that the entire game ends up feeling like one giant training tutorial. It's impossible to get stuck at any point because all of the answers are pretty much handed right to you. If you really dislike having to think about anything too hard, this might be your pace. Otherwise, keep your fingers crossed that Happy Feet spawns a more inspired movie tie-in game.

Open Season looks like many other animated adaptations on the market, but what it lacks more than anything is enjoyable gameplay. There’s no thrill attached to the empty “hide and sneak” gameplay, and the uneven motion controls derail the potentially blissful “Wild Ride” missions. Games designed for children should certainly be more accessible than others, but Open Season is insultingly easy, thus stripping away the whole point of playing the game. Those compelled to kill some time with Boog and Elliot should simply watch the film. It’s half as long and probably several times more interesting.

Overall, Open Season is a fairly inoffensive attempt at piggybacking the movie, despite its insulting lack of challenge, though it's disappointing that Ubisoft's first crack at a licensed kids movie title isn't a little more engaging for those above the age of six. The humour's warm enough to keep you going, there's plenty of variety, it's technically ok, and for ADD kids it's the kind of thing you can put on and not be pestered every time they get stuck. Put it this way: if your kid gets stuck on a game like Open Season, you know something's amiss. Consider it a good test of whether videogames really are for them...

When it was released for the GameCube, Open Season was already walking that fine line between mediocrity and being total junk. Now, Ubisoft has published the same game for the Wii, has saddled it with inferior controls, and is asking 20 dollars more for it. That's a high premium to pay for a movie cash-in that wasn't much good to begin with.

It’s impossible to recommend this for anyone. There are only slight glimmers of enjoyment shown in this repetitive, simple and poorly ported four hour experience. The experience is frequently marred by load times, irresponsive controls and choppy graphics that shouldn’t be expected on any console on the market at the moment. Your money would be best suited elsewhere than on this terrible movie tie-in.

Kids looking for an adventure with their favorite characters from the movie will wonder why they're stuck picking up worms for a group of skunks. Adults looking for some new Wii software will wonder why they didn't pick up something more inline with the hardware's capabilities. Everyone else should know better in the first place.
