This is the fifth game in the Deer Hunter series
, and the last published by WizardWorks
before it got acquired by Infogrames (later Atari.)
As in the previous games, you play the role of a hunter who roams through several maps around the world in search of bucks and does to kill and add to his or her trophy collection.
The main addition to this sequel is the presence of more species of wild animals - elk, grizzly bears, black bears, and mountain lions - who can also be hunted. While deer tend to run away from hunters, these other wild animals may attack the player. They are rare, though, and not as threatening or dangerous as in some other Sunstorm
hunting titles, like the Rocky Mountain Trophy Hunter series
There's also a Tournament mode where other AI hunters are present in the field hunting (or scaring the hunt) with you for a set amount of time, and the Hunting Season, which appeared before in Deer Hunter 3
, which has now been expanded so that you can spend several years (in game time) managing a herd.
Another difference, on the minus side, is that Deer Hunter 4
's option to play the game as the deer (the hunted instead of the hunter), has since been removed.
