Cabela's Adventure Camp is a home console game from Activision that is on the Wii, Playstation 3 (PS3), and Xbox 360. I was given the PS3 version to play for this review. This game requires the Move on the PS3, and Kinect on the Xbox 360. Make sure you have those if you plan on purchasing this camping game. Okay so technically this is not a camping game.

There is no Camping Mama in Cabela's Adventure Camp. What is in this game are sporting events. Things like biking in the mountains, kayaking through canyons, sheet shooting in the woods, archery, fishing, wave riding, and hogwhacking. I will let you explore the game for yourself to unearth all of the events. There is more than one way to play certain sports.

The in game characters remind me of Avatars on the Xbox 360. They are slight taller and more defined, but not by much. Cabela's Adventure Camp has some wonderful effects in things like dynamite exploding, and the water effects. It is obvious that effort was put into making those look absolutely amazing. There is some light violence in things like whacking those moles. Which is not as much fun as it sounds.

The strangest thing about Cabela's Adventure Camp is grieving your opponents. This is like trash talking, talking smack, etc. I have never seen much use for this. After all if you decimate an opponent who is way weaker, what other outcome was to be expected? If you lose after trash talking then you look like an ignorant fool.

I like it when games teach good sportsmanship. Cabela's Adventure Camp comes up short in that department. Now the music is wonderful, and the game does an awesome job of teaching players how to play the different sports. Many of them have a similar control scheme so that helps in learning Cabela's Adventure Camp as well.

If you have one of the current home console machines you can easily enjoy Cabela's Adventure Camp. There is enough sports in this multiplayer game to keep families busy for a few weeks. Four family members can enjoy Cabela's Adventure Camp on the PS3. I ran into one minor irritation while playing Cabela's Adventure Camp. That would be the Playstation Eye losing track of the Move Wand. This did not happen all the time, but enough to warrant a mention. Casting in the fishing game was the worst offender.

Cabela's Adventure Camp teaches families to enjoy one another's company. Be competitive and try and win at the different games. I really enjoyed the Skeet shooting in Cabela's Adventure Camp. I can see this franchise going far in future releases. There is an unique atmosphere to Cabela's Adventure Camp that you will not soon forget. I know I won't.
