Summary: I've had an amzing time playing this game so far. After reading the comments about the durability of the rod, I decided to reinforce the rod with CA glue and electric tape before gameplay. This has resulted in hours of fun and hard sets on several species of fish.
Summary: The actual game was great but the rod controller broke after 10inutes of use. My son knew I had spent more than we could afford on it for his birthday so he tried to glue it so I wouldn't be disappointed but that was ineffective
Summary: got it for my boyfriend for an xmas present/bday present. we like bass fishing for real, we have fun playing around with this. I am 33, he is 35. Just adds a little more realistic feel for the winter time while you have the fishing itch but its not quite time. :)
