Summary: Of all three versions I've played, Computer, PS 2, and now PS3, I find it a much more complicated game, with fewer options than before. I really dislike the "drag" set on the "reel out, reel in" crap. That's NOT the way you actually fish.
Summary: You have to use the controller like a fishing rod and use the casting motion to cast the line. The idea of flipping the control towards my LCD does not appeal to me. I guess you could do the same motion towards a wall by the screen, but the tendency is to cast towards your target on the screen.
Lack of Competition Makes This the Best Fishing Game on the PS3

Summary: I bought this game for my 6 year old nephew, who's really gotten into fishing over the past couple years, but usually only gets to fish when they visit grandma and grandpa over the summer. The fishing part itself is designed pretty well. My nephew was catching 29" large-mouth bass within an hour.
