  • Summary: Fishing gets closer to home in Fishing Master, a title that takes arcade style fishing and updates it for a whole new generation. Utilizing both the Wii Remote and Nunchuk, players bait, cast, hook, & battle a variety of different fish, all from the comfort of their living rooms. Players assume the role of an up-and-coming fisherman tasked by his grandfather to compete in increasingly difficult fishing tournaments to attain the coveted Fishing Master title. Deep in accessible and varied gameplay, Fishing Master sports a single-player mode and a four-player head-to-head multiplayer mode aiming to have players reeling in the fun for days. [Hudson] Expand

  1. There aren’t any extra bells or whistles, but true fishing fans don’t need fancy. We are enjoying it, and the price is right at $30. I can truthfully say that we’ve had more fun with this game than with some more detailed and more expensive games.
  2. Fishing Master neatly captures the drama and thrill of landing a fish, but the fun only holds up for short sessions.
  3. As a first game this was actually pretty impressive, and although the mechanics could be a bit frustrating at times it was still worth it to put the work in and enjoy fishing.
  4. We don't mind cute and simple - but this is often just plain dull. [May 2008, p.82]
  5. Before this could get too gamey sitting on store shelves, the publisher wisely dropped the price to $20, which is where it should have started.

    Fishing Master isn’t all bad, it’s just too shallow.
  7. 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.
