  1. If you are looking for the next great fishing game then Rapala Fishing Frenzy 2009 is not it.
  2. Through the use of the official Rapala license, this game should be been a killer fishing sim. Instead, this game entirely misses the point.
  3. The game appears to be confused if it is an arcade title and if it is, make it fun by have us fishing some rare and cooler fish, other then what they have in the game and if they wanted a simulation, why the lame controls, bad motion controls and poor gameplay overall. This is not even a rental, stay far away from it.

    If development studio Fun Labs was going for an arcade fishing experience, it missed the point. There are no exotic fish species and the action that comes with hooking a fish is mundane. If the objective was to make a simulation, they forgot to add any features to make it feel real.
