Summary: Purchased game as its one of my favorite shows. Game has a very slow and time consuming play. I'm guessing like a real fishing trip, but tends to tire you out and you end up not playing as much as you'd like. Better graphics would be nice too. Happy with game though. Fishing is fishing!
Summary: Game was fun for a few days then it seemed to get old....dump pots and drag em in....there is no way to speed it up or anything. I also noticed that some of the crew members get "lazy". They won't come out when its time to work. They also aren't very smart. They go out and one dude runs across the entire deck to hook a pot when there is another guy literally inches from the hook. Then he goes back on the other side of the deck. This happens for every pot.
Summary: The price of the item was good, I got a good deal. The game was also delivered fairly quickly. However, the game is all scratched to the point where the game will freeze about 6 times in one hour... if I am persistent in playing the game and do not get sick of starting the game every 10 minutes and saving the game twice between picking up pods... ridiculous! But I like slow games that still keep you interactive the whole time in some way.
Summary: I love the show but this game needs something to make it more exciting. It was like watching paint dry. I give it an average rating because it could be worse. I have owned it a week and I think I am going to re-list it.
Summary: Ok game, nothing too exciting, graphics are very poor. You do get to go through all the basics but the game lacks any features and will bore you very quickly. Only thing that makes this game fun is if you make the difficulty on the hardest setting.
Summary: My husband and son love the show so I thought I'd buy them the game. It's much harder than I thought it would be. I myself have never played it (they hog the xbox 360 all the time) but my husband said it's too hard for even him to play. He's read the directions but still can't play it well. For us it doesn't meet our expectations but it might meet or even exceed the next persons.
Summary: GAME IS ALRIGHT. Some of the controls can be confusing and the game takes a while to load, but if your a fan of the Deadliest Catch I think overall you will probably enjoy the game, or atleast it will keep your interest.
Summary: I see the complaints on here about "Deadliest Catch" being slow....and they are right. "Alaskan Storm" gameplay can be pretty repetitive and slow. When setting your pots to fish, it seems like it takes forever! (If this happened on the show Capt. Phil Harris would be pitching a fit!!)Most likely I'm spoiled by the TV show and the magic of editing.
