  • Summary: [WiiWare] Welcome to the adventures of Cocoto, Fishing Master. Get ready for a completely new experience on Wii. Play the role of Cocoto and travel the world to find five millennial fish. Only they can stop the magic cauldron from overflowing with lava and prevent the world from being destroyed. Thanks to Cocoto Fishing Master for Wii, fishing has never been such fun. Use the Wii Remote™ and Nunchuk™ controllers like a real fishing rod to catch more than 30 different fish. Discover five enchanted lakes in five different worlds from Cocoto's universe. Confront gigantic bosses to collect each fragment of the statuette that will allow you to wake the great god Geo from his slumber. Meet Cocoto's friends, sell your fish to Baggy and buy new fishing equipment from Neuro's shop. [Neko Entertainment] Collapse

  1. For only 700 points (about a fiver) it's a fun diversion. [Sept 2008, p.101]
  2. It lacks the precision of the old Sega rod, but it's still great fun to play. [Issue#25, p.79]
  3. The charming art style and budget price aren't enough to keep this rigid fishing sim out of the depths of mediocrity.
  4. The lack of depth and variety outright kills CFM’s value as a fishing sim and what's left is a convoluted minigame bolstered by a few neat ideas.
  5. Cocoto can bore you into thinking you're having a good time, but it's a poorly executed game that's been done much better before elsewhere. [Sept 2008, p.68]
  6. 40
    But the control scheme kills any potential this package would have had, as the nearly unplayable implementation of Wii Remote motion control will block the vast majority of players from progressing past even the very first stage.
  7. It looks cute, it has a couple of nice ideas, but it's just not fun.
