Summary: This is a pretty good simulation of the show. Casual fishing fans or casual fans of the show should probably avoid this game, but for hardcore fans this is probably as close a simulation as you are going to get without going out on a boat yourself. In this game you are the captain, you choose your boat, name it, customize the paint scheme, hire your own crewmembers (each with their own areas of strength/weakness) purchase fuel, decide how many pots & how much bait to...
Summary: Deadliest Catch Alaskan Storm is a slow paced simulation game as you captain a crab fishing vessel in the Bering Sea. This game was made in 2008, so in relativness to the time it came out it has average graphics. The actions and diolouge are kind of vague, but the game is enjoyable. If you have enough time to sit diwn and enjoy this game, then you will like it.
I think this is a great game for the fans of the show

Summary: For me being a big fan of the show, this is a fun game. There are a lot of buttons to remember but I don't play many games either :) Over all I really am having fun playing and enjoy the extra videos and games that can be unlocked as I play more.
Summary: If you like the TV show you will like the game it's pretty close to it. You have people get hurt,mechanical failures,people whining about being cold and tired. The boat is a little tricky to learn how to run and all the controls necessary but it is still pretty cool. Graphics are not the greatest in the world but not horrible by any means. it's a slow paced game, you are crab fishing after all, but it is alot of fun.
Summary: Ok, so I finally broke down and ordered Alaskan storm on amazon. After reading the reviews, I have to say I was a little wary ordering the game, and I'm a HUGE fan. So I ordered it, and after going through the training and starting my career, I've noticed that this game is everything I expected or wanted. I FEEL LIKE I'M CRAB FISHING, not in an arcade. Sure, the graphics are not that great, and the crew doesn't chatter away the whole time. But what did everybody expect?
Summary: Ok, after reading a few of the other reviews on this game, I must say that some make good points, and some state their own harsh opinions on the game itself. Myself, I love this game, its fun to me, and its enjoyable at the most. The game gives you some very good tutorials on how to do a multitude of things, and helps you out with tips from the Northwestern captain himself, Sig Hansen.
Summary: I bought this game when it first arrived on store shelves and thought it was great. I didnt own a HD tv at the time so some of the grapics were hard to make out. But other than that the game is fun thats why i'm buying it again because now i have a brand new tv to play it on.
