    Despite any misgivings you might have for fishing games or fishing in general, Fishing Kings is truly an excellent title that shows off the iPhone's true colors.

    Gameloft has done a marvelous job creating a high-quality game that you'll enjoy for months to come, even during actual fishing trips. After all, everyone needs something to pass the time.

    With the App Store literally crammed with action games and tower defense games, a fishing simulation may be the ideal choice to "unplug" and enjoy a genre that maybe we never thought could be fun. Fishing Kings does the job pretty well, give it a try.

    Even if fishing holds no appeal to you, this digital representation is eminently playable and should keep you hooked for quite some time.

    The fishing works as expected, and is decidedly more fun and interactive than other available titles.

    Not only is it great to look at, with great fish models and animation, realistic water effects and pretty looking locales all running smoothly on my 3GS, but the gameplay itself is great fun.

    A great translation of fishing. [July 2010, p.96]

    If you can get past its annoying issues, Fishing Kings is a good catch.

    My only real complaint is that, well, I got tired of doing the same thing over and over again. It's an extremely repetitive game.
