    Simple game once you get the basic mechanics of the fishing down. Very addictive in a pokemon gotta get them all type of way as you try to get all the fishes you can.

    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.

    This is a game that isn't supposed to be a simulation. Rapala is there for that.

    It's a fun light fishing game with enough variety and depth to keep you coming back for a few minutes of fishing often. Time will tell if it can compete with the much anticipated Hooked: Real Fishing, but it easily surpasses Rapala Pro and even everyone's Zelda fishing experience.

  1. Fishing Master neatly captures the drama and thrill of landing a fish, but the fun only holds up for short sessions.
  2. Fishing Master is more akin to Pokemon than it is to a simulation of fishing, and will probably appeal the most to the "gotta catch them all" crowd.

    Fishing Master isn’t all bad, it’s just too shallow.
