  1. Fishing Master is a game with quite a few negative points. Mainly the fishing is just horrible. Fishing with the Wii-Remote and the Nun-chuck is simply boring. Once you how to do it, it's all basically the same. The only advantage to the game is that you're able to buy new fishing rods and lures and join tournaments. But it doesn't compensate for the fishing system.
  2. This game is worth ten bucks at the most. If you pay any more than that, you're doing a disservice to developers striving to provide above-average experiences to gamers.

    Fun game, a little cheesy but 2 player makes the game. I would not play the single player game as it is extremely lame. But if you see it as Fun game, a little cheesy but 2 player makes the game.

    If you enjoy fishing (fresh water or Salt) you need to check into this game. Easy simple controls lead to an addicting enjoyable gameplay.

However, Master still remains challenging enough for all ages. Lays excellent foundation for other fishing games in the future. Full Review »
