Late review on item bought a few yrs back.

  • Summary: sadly it didn't work from day one on any computer or laptop in the house, and as it was only a few £'s I honestly couldn't be annoyed returning it as return postage would have cost as much as the item, young son was disappointed as he wanted it for his dad as part of his xmas present

Great family fun

  • Summary: Of course the graphics aren't really state of the art, but they are actually pretty good once you've turned up the settings to max in the graphics options. The only thing that then lets it down is the appearance of the water from above, but once you've cast in all the action is underwater anyway. The fish act very naturally - certain species will take while others will ignore it, all dependant on the temperature and what lure has been selected, etc.

Definetly NOT the most realistic out there...

  • Summary: I am a huge fan of Matty and was hugely disappointed to find that this game brings hardly realistic to the table, all you have to do is use your fish finder get a shoal of fish select a good lure for the species cast out and as soon as the lure passes a fish its suddenly attracted to it, and i mean come on who's goin' to use 50lb line for pike??? if someone saw me fishing with 50lb on a pike lake/loch they'd think i was of my rocker!

one of the best

  • Summary: Matt Hayes total fishing as a television program astounded me, but nothing could prepare me for the sheer angling delight that is Matt Hayes Fishing for the PC.With the sheer diversity of fish species available to catch and the thrill of the fight being just as extraordinary. As a non fisher i was sceptical to begin with, but after playing Matt Hayes fishing, im on the lakes 4 days a week, one of the best, BUY IT!!!!

  • Summary: Matt Hayes fishing has got to be the ultimate fishing simulator ever! It has real life-like graphics, many lures/baits to choose from and many different species of fish including pike, perch, rainbow trout, brown trout and chub. You can change rods, line test and alter drag and line gears just like real life. So if your looking for a fishing game this is the one for you!

FANTASTIC!

  • Summary: Matt Hayes fishing is the most realistic and fun fishing game on the market. All rods, bait and even the smallest variation in the place you fish all contribute to the weight and type of fish caught. An absolutely fantastic game. I would definitely recommend it to any fishing fan.

Not what expected

  • Summary: Fishing is most enjoyable in nice settings,and this is where Matt Hayes fishing fails.Although there are 6/7 different scenes,they all seem the SAME. No variety,loch Neigh,Or Loch Lomond!! Otherwise it is fairly good,but a little boring,because of lack of variety. Padraic,kildare Ireland.
