  1. The pacing of the game may have you dozing off at times, but with a little persistence you will find one of the most underrated games of 2001.

  3. Beautiful graphics, huge lakes, multiple lures, multiple characters, weather effects, what else could you want in a fishing game?

  5. A model example of what sequels should be. By taking an already great game mechanic and changing it ever so slightly, this sequel truly adds to the fishing experience--instead of just treading water.

  11. Check it out if you love to fish, or if you just want to spend a lazy afternoon with a beer in one hand and your rod in the other.

    The sequel to one of the best fishing games ever unfortunately delivers nothing but a fishy stench instead of a prize catch-of-the-day.

    Finally...I can fish during those long winter days. A threat indeed, great graphics, hard enough to keep you interested.
