Summary: First of all, I only purchased the version without the rod/reel so I cannot attest to how sturdy it is. Although the instruction booklet may not tell you precisely how to cast, there is an in-game tutorial that tells you exactly how to do it so I'm not sure why some customers are having a hard time learning how to cast. My biggest complaint is trying to do the combos.
Summary: This is a game for people who like fishing and miss it.It has tons of lures and tons of fish. It has a down side you have to unlock lakes and lures. Also when you cast you go under water were the lure is so you see what kind of fish you have hooked. (if you do hook one)The reel attachment broke reel soon!
Summary: I bought this game and liked it immediately, but it is not without some small issues. It can be hard to learn how to drive the boat and to cast. Also, the reel attachment that came with the game broke after playing for a while. There are two screws that hold it together, and the plastic around them broke. Returned the game and bought a new one with no trouble. When you do learn how to cast and drive it is a great game and a lot of fun!
Summary: This game came out in late 2003 or early 2004. I decided to try this fishing game to see if it was any good, so I got myself a copy of Rapala Pro Fishing. This is what I found. When I installed my copy of Rapala Pro Fishing and started playing it, I quickly saw that this game truly does have state-of-the-art graphics, realism, and game-play, just as was advertised when this game was for sale everywhere.
Summary: This game, first off, will lock up your pc if you don't have very, very updated drivers. Upside is, Activision will reply to you and direct you to a fix. They were great. Now that I can play the game, it needs a few things. It plays like a beta version, cranky and I don't mean the baits. Yeah, they're all Rapala, and I haven't gotten a muskie or walleye to look at one yet, which were the fish that attracted me to the game.
Excerpt: Io e mio fratello siamo sempre stati appassionati di pesca, sia quella vera che quella virtuale, provando nel tempo diversi titoli riguardanti questa nostra passione. Rapala Fishing Frenzy è uno dei giochi di simulazione di pesca che ci ha pienamente soddisfatti, dia per la buonissima grafica, con scenari reali e sempre vari, sia per la importantissima fse di pesca, che deve essere certamente appagante.
