Fish Tycoon on DS is like that "monster bass" you see from the shore by the weed bed, compared to the tiny baby bass it becomes once it jumps on your hook and you land it. Which means, yeah, I was expecting Fish Tycoon to be better on the DS. It's worse.
Fish Tycoon cannot escape the trappings of mediocrity. Besides its unique status as a game that requires tedious work for minimum payoff, it also features some of the worst DS compatibility to be seen on the system.
