Summary: Wow! I AM surprised. I thought this was going to only be a mediocre little game with no replay value that would get boring within after only a few times of playing. Boy was I wrong. This game is wonderful. I was looking for fishing games to play on my new 360 and saw this. At the time it was the cheapest one out there, but I still had my qualms about it after seeing on gameplay vids that it looked very arcady -- to arcady for me.
Summary: This game is none stop button mashing. You do not fish by tapping multiple button is succession. This might be the worst fishing game i have ever played, this is the worst game i have ever played.
Summary: This game is a real tough one to evaluate. The graphics are awesome, and the fishing is varied enough to make it interesting. BUT... on certain lakes (which I cringe at when I see them loading) there are SO MANY GLITCHES that is makes it almost impossible to get through the level... or at least so frustrating that you'll just want to play something (anything) else.
Summary: I love to fish and have played several other fishing games on other platforms. This game is hard to learn and frustrating. Maybe it is just me, but there are too many things to try and do to keep the fish on the line and reeled in (I have yet to catch a fish and get it too the boat). I was looking for something that was more intuitive to play and actually catching a fish would be great!
Summary: Looked like potentially a good game, bought it to learn more about lure selection and some entertainment while the weather was cold. The game makes you visually focus on a heads-up display for line tension so you really don't get to watch the action. Pretty much just get to stare at an indicator bar, very disappointing.
Summary: For a game released in 2009, this could have been a lot better. The graphics are okay; for a fishing game they should have been sharper. The gameplay is tedious after you catch a couple of fish. The strange arcade-like buttons and actions don't feel right for a fishing game. If you like casual games or really, really like fishing games then give it a shot. Otherwise don't waste your money on a product that could have been a million times more interesting.
Summary: Came fairly quick! Brother loves fishing and figured this would be perfect for him, for Christmas. He said he loves this game, and is playing it all the time!! Shipping was quick, and price was worth it!!
