Not Much Fun!

  • Summary: I purchased this game for my 12 year old daughter after she fell in love with a 2 week trial version of this for the PC. I really wanted to get the DS version so she didn't stay on her computer so much. So far the game sucks. She enjoyed the PC version much more because the fish didn't die off as bad. With the DS version, we did what people recommend and bred fish to a similar type (you only get one of each type). The baby fish die off non stop.

Not for an 8 year old

  • Summary: It's a complex game more suitable for teens or adults on level of skill needed; my 8 year old wasn't patient enough to enjoy the game.

Unplayable

Christi F., Amazon
11 May 2009
  • Summary: This game has a great premise, but they failed at the follow-through. It's not the bad graphics that ruin the game, it's the fact that you can't get anywhere! Tried playing on easy for days, and can't get past the fact that all my fish keep dying. The fish sell for so cheap, you can't get your money up high enough to buy the items to need to keep the babies alive.

Yawn....

Carol A. Koon "grandma", Amazon
3 August 2008
  • Summary: As a kid, I thought that Fish Tycoon was very boring. It's a great idea for the game, but it is a very slow moving... and takes a LLLOOONNNGGGG time for your fish to grow. I'm a fan of the computer version, so I thought I would give the DS version a try... It was not worth the money. The screen graphics are fair, and instead of having a large view of your fish tank, you can only see one little section at a time.

Annoyingly addictive

Cheryl M. Brunell "Aero's Mom", Amazon
14 April 2008
  • Summary: Definitely worth the price, but it is not a game I should really say I like, I just can't stop playing it. You are driven to keep making money and trying new breeding pairs. Gameplay is extremely slow, even on double speed. Too many fish fry die too often, making it frustrating and hard, yet I find too many games today are over in a matter of hours. Graphics are not great. BUT, for $20, I have gotten more than enough value out of it already- quite the challenge.

Fish Tycoon DS

Amy M "AM", Amazon
28 December 2007
  • Summary: I have to admit that this game takes some patience. I've had other Tycoon games in the past, and played a demo of Zoo Tycoon, and this one I didn't "get" at first. Now that I've gotten past my first hurdle I really like it a lot, certain fish sell better than others, some sell for more than others and that's where the strategy comes in. Now I need to figure out the 7 Magic Fish!

hours of playing

Carol Daley "Marinesgirl", Amazon
4 December 2007
  • Summary: i did fish tycoon a year ago on my pc and spent hours and hours doing it. i was thrilled to see it for my ds. if you like games like this, you will love it. you have to find the 7 magic fish and in the meantime, breed, heal, sell fish and also buy equipment for your aquariums. you can stop time if you go away a long time or you can speed up time so everything goes faster.

Leisure fun

S. Stansell "ChibiXzaide", Amazon
9 November 2007
  • Summary: I was expecting something different when I bought this. But I don't think I wasted my money. This is not really a "pet sim" game... The goal is to try to breed the seven "Magic fish", and for some bragging rights, or just to give yourself more to do, you could try to breed all 780-some species of fish. As the very subject matter "fish" should make evident, this is not a very engaging game (though at least more engaging than real pet fish).
