Summary: This game is fun for 2 people to play, not so much solo. It is arcade style, not realistic fishing at all. Steering the boat is the most frustrating thing I have ever done on the Wii. To steer you tilt the remote and it doesn't respond well (but comes with practice). The thumb stick on the nunchuk would have been a much better option.
Summary: Got this for my husband as his first game for Wii. He's a good fisherman and I wasn't sure he would like this. We just got our Wii and before that he only played PS2 football games. After a few casts he was 'hooked'! It kind of feels like real fishing but without the long waits! That part I like. I hate waiting for a good bite on my line so this is a good game for any 'fisherman' without patience!
Summary: I got this game for my husband for Christmas because he had said he wanted a hunting or fishing game and after looking at the others, figured I would give it a chance. Well my husband does like it but my daughter and I have played it more than him. It is best as a family game; certainly makes for some good 'ol competition. Both he and I would do the multiplayer versus or try the Tournament co-op.
