    Reel Fishing Paradise 3D is not a bad game by any means, but it is oddly paced in places. The catching is easy, while some of the missions can take a while to complete. Either way, there is no sense of you becoming a victor.

    A pleasant fishing sim. [March 2012, p.101]

    We recommend a catch-and-release approach to Reel Fishing Paradise 3D; it probably isn't destined for your trophy wall. [July 2011, p.89]

    Reel Fishing Paradise 3D is one of only very few options available for people looking for a fishing game on the Nintendo 3DS. It simply cannot match console simulators that really get the feel for fishing down far better than a portable edition can, though.

    There’s very little here that hasn’t already been done a lot better elsewhere– and as side-note mini-games to boot.

    The actual fishing model used in this game is amazing. The way it allows you to control the rod tip and as such direct the fish in combination with the reel is the business.
    Anyone that fishes will absolutely love just how realistic this game feels once the fish is hooked..

    There is also a good variety of species to catch - each requiring a different technique to land.
    As in other fishing games there are various lures and baits to select - each chosen after taking consideration of the species you are after and the location you are fishing at.

    The downside to the game is that it's too easy to catch fish. Sure you will break the line or pull the hook out every now and then. But the real problem is that the fish just aren't fussy enough when it comes to bait or lure selection. Anyone that fishes knows this is not how it really is.

    Another gripe is that you fish from the shore rather than in a boat. As such, the playing area feels very confined.

    Overall, I see this game as one with massive potential let down by a lack of purpose or sense of achievement.

    Fighting the fish is without a doubt brilliant in this. It's what goes on before and after that lets it down.

    For all its flaws I'm giving it 7/10 simply because the model used to fight the fish is as good as I have experienced.
