The moral of Wild Hearts is not “man was the true monster all along,” but it threatened to turn me into a few hours before I started writing this review. I never imagined I could be one of those horrible rich people who stand over an endangered animal they just slaughtered for sport, a big joker grin aimed at the camera. But when I finally killed the flying wind tiger that had been stymieing me for hours, I knew I had it in me.

Wild Hearts is a hunting game that pontificates on the delicate balance of nature at every opportunity, but there were more than a few moments where I was ready to raze all of feudal Japan and be done with some of this game’s more tedious fights and aggravating performance problems. At least I can now do the next best thing: wear that dead tiger’s skin as armor to go on a genocidal rampage. Wild Hearts won’t technically allow me to wipe the species from existence, but it’s good to have dreams, right?
