  • Summary: Battle 40-foot waves, storms, ice and a nearly 100-percent crewmember injury rate in the dangerous hunt for undersea riches on the Bering Sea with Deadliest Catch Alaskan Storm. The game was inspired by Sig, Edgar and Norman Hansen -- three brothers who have made their living crab fishing onBattle 40-foot waves, storms, ice and a nearly 100-percent crewmember injury rate in the dangerous hunt for undersea riches on the Bering Sea with Deadliest Catch Alaskan Storm. The game was inspired by Sig, Edgar and Norman Hansen -- three brothers who have made their living crab fishing on the Bering Sea aboard their family's fishing vessel, the Northwestern. Deadliest Catch Alaskan Storm lets gamers captain their own boat in the frenzied search for an undersea jackpot. Gamers select one of five real crab boats, including the Northwestern, Cornelia Marie and Sea Star -- all featured on the series, or create and customize their own boat. Gamers then recruit and lead their own crew from a roster of twenty real crab fishermen. Selecting the wrong boat or recruiting the wrong crew member can mean the difference between landing a Bering Sea jackpot or disaster. Lead your fatigued, hungry and hardworking crew in the strategic search for King Crab and Opilio Crab, while battling to secure your catch and livelihood before other captains and crews get to the crab first.

  1. The modelers did an absolutely fantastic job of virtualizing massive crab boats and making it believable. The waves, water swells, storms, ice floes all make for a very immersive environment that just feels right. Real voices with real crab fishermen (and women) and tons of video make the title slightly more robust. Unfortunately, there are clipping issues and some bugs that make what would've been a very polished game feel like it released maybe just a bit too early.

    Deadliest Catch: Alaskan Storm balances the good and the bad, and it manages to fall somewhere just above mediocrity.

    I actually just bought this game a few days ago and came here to see what score gamers gave it.. I read the Critic Reviews and agree with mostI actually just bought this game a few days ago and came here to see what score gamers gave it.. I read the Critic Reviews and agree with most of what they wrote. However, it is from 2008, and it's a lot better than some of these lame sims being pumped out recently. My only complaint and reason for the score of 8 is the repetitive maps. I only played three of them but it seems map 1 repeats after map 2. If you're into boats, fishing and sims in general, I think you'll enjoy it. Expand
