If your the type of person that's into Proper animal simulation games. It's nothing like those crappy Ipad games you find that claim to be an animal simulation but is clearly not. untamed life a cougar is quite a realistic Cougar simulation. The graphics are good, and have improved alot since when it first came out. You play the role of a female cougar, which you get to pick out of quite a few colors. You start out in search of a mate. This is the only time that the males are Friendly to the female. Infact on my first try I sat and watched several males fight eachother over the right to mate with the female cougar. Once the strongest male won, I allowed him to do the 'Deed'. After falling pregnant, i started searching for a den to give birth in, catching prey and avoiding hunters along the way. When i found a place i liked, I give birth to 3 cubs. They were small and slow, but adorable. I left them at the den to search for food and to mark my territory to keep rival females at bay. We stayed there, until a male had learnt of our whereabouts. And so i had to lead my cubs to safety, otherwise that male would kill them. My cubs are now on the second stage of life. They are still spotted but are able to keep up with mum. The female you begin with isn't that strong or able to run for a longer period of time. That's where the stats come in. You can gain stats and use those stats to unlock abilities. Like Longer health, Stamina and even Quicker acceleration. I've also recently found out that the cubs have genetics from both of the parent's. So the parent's colors affect the cubs colors. Each animal reacts differently to your approach. A deer will flee, a Male deer, will also flee, but if attacked he will kick. A bison,Moose and Horse will warn you by either shaking their heads or scraping their hoof along the ground. If you get too close they attack, instead of other games where npc's automatically attack the second your in range. Predators though will attack you when in range. Specially wolves. Bears and foxes, i've caught them stalking my cubs. Eagles attack both mum and cubs. I've caught them swooping down on my cubs, i just manage to get there in time and the eagle hobbles along on the ground trying to take off. Not all of the human NPC's are alone.. That's right, some of them have backup.
Realistic Animal behaviour. (For both Cougar's and npc's.)
Realistic Cougar and animal Sounds.
Quite Realistic Animations.
Different Life stages for cubs. I've only witnessed 2 so far. Barely walking stage (Maybe a week or 2. Has Spots), And Cub stage(Has Spots, and can keep up with mum.) But from the website, i've seen a slightly older cub with no spots.
Upgradable Cougar. (Stats)
Plenty of prey to hunt and dangers to face to keep you on your toes.
Game not easy, (Even on easy.) Prey is sometimes hard to Stalk and catch in normal mode. That's what Target mode is for (T)
Cubs play with eachother.
Day and Night cycle.
The Game World is beautifully detailed.
