A so-so fishing experience - the good, the bad and the ugly

Summary: Warning... before you play this game you need A LOT of patience. In the beginning, as you are learning the ropes, the fish will more likely ignore your lures rather than bite at the line. In a half hour of fishing, you may catch 2-3 fish, if you're lucky. The graphics above water are pretty good for being a 5 year old game. Below the surface, they are fair. The fish try to jump when hooked which causes my TV screen to go into hyper-active mode and spazz out...
Summary: This game is not spectacular, but not terrible either. The graphics are okay, but the animation can be choppy. I enjoy fishing video games. I like the 2007 Rapala Tournament Fishing game better, but it is much harder and takes alot more time than Fishing Frenzy. With this game, you can use any lure while casting from the location you start at, and you always catch a fish. Bottom line: This game is good for gaining an easy 1000 Xbox Live achievement points.
Summary: The game leaves you with little instruction. It's just like the real thing. If someone dropped you by a lake with a bunch of fishing gear and a boat, but offered you no instruction as to what works well and how, you would be playing this game. It's slow, there is no action and the weather is mediocre.
Summary: Look at the "Product Features" provided: --Buy with confidence! --Rapala Trophies X360 Wow what a description. This is one boring product. I expected it to be as good as the xbox "pro fishing challenge"-nope. I expected it to be a learning tool for fishing--nope. I expected it to have different lures in addition to Rapala (excellent product by the way) such as spinners, soft and spoon lures---nope. I just use the free fishing option.
Summary: Rapala's Fishing Frenzy Früher als kleiner Junge war ich recht häufig mit meinem Opa angeln, es ging nicht immer darum was man fängt sondern das man auch Spaß hat, aber nach und nach nervte es mich dann doch das alle immer mehr gefangen haben als ich, somit hatte ich irgendwann keine große Lust mehr dazu, vor allem nicht weil ich auch noch einen Angelschein hätte machen müssen.
