"Free to download, pay thru the nose for better weapons."
Its free to download.
This is one of those games like War Rock that are free to download, but you must pay for better weapons and accessories constantly. The Hunter requires that you post a Pay Pal account before you can play. You must play on their server, and without a broadband service the play is very slow. You get a low powered weapon to start with very few rounds of ammo. To get a better weapon, yep you get to pay, and pay and pay again for scopes, ammo etc.
The Hunter is apparently not good enough to sell outright, so the publisher chooses the option of gouging everyone who plays. I wasted three hours downloading the blasted software only to find out later that this is a "pay us forever" kind of software. War Rock and other combat games are the same. It would be nice if CNET would tell us this before we waste hours of our time downloading the software. Wait for a deal on other stand alone software that you can play alone on your system. I refuse to become one of The Hunter's prey. Pass on this one.
