Summary: The fishing rod already broke. I used it for only 5 min. then it snapped in half at the connecting area. I continued to play the game, now that was fun. I rate the game a 5 if you like fishing. For the rod itself, a 2. the concept of the rod is great, but very cheaply made.
Summary: Lot's of fun. The interface is not that intuitive, so it's a bit repetitive to go through all the intro stuff again and again. Fairly authentic feel of the fish on the line, but I had hoped it would be better.
Summary: I purchased this game to fill the void of fishing during the cold months( I do not ice fish). The game lives up to expectations. I'm 43 years young and I have a blast playing this game. I have read other reviews about the crank breaking but I have'nt had that problem(yet). The graphics are great and with a "rumble" control, it kinda feels like the fish fighting.
Great Indoor fishing when outdoor fishing can't be done.
Happy buyer, Amazon

Summary: Our 11-year old son and his friends have tons of fun playing this game. Who am I kidding, the whole family has a good time. We love to fish in the summer and this certainly takes it's place when we can't fish!
