Summary: It is OK that is about all I can say. There are better fishing games for the Wii. I have yet to play the bow and spear fishing aspect of the game. If it is better, then the game would be worth the purchase.
Summary: Interesting game, but initially very difficult to understand. Once you figure it out, it's mildly entertaining, but certainly nothing like real fishing. 4 lb. bluegills? 13 lb. walleyes caught on surface lures? Come on, get real.... The spear and bowfishing is difficult because of Wii aiming issues - I'm not sure if this is a Wii problem or a software problem. Anyhow - the game is OK and mildly entertaining, but certainly not addicting and often frustrating.
Summary: If you were thinking that this game allows you to fish for the sharks and larger fish mentioned in the description, that is not exactly true. You can shoot at them in spearfishing mode but your rod fishing is limited to a river area and the game lacks the level of rod control that I have enjoyed in other games. It tells you to move the remote left or right to hook the fish and has a tension meter, but you must obey the commands it flashes on the screen or lose the fish.
