    Gamers hoping to find an exciting and unique fishing experience in virtual form aren't happy; hardcore fishing fans hoping to see one of their favorite brands celebrated will be disappointed as well.
  2. For all its simminess, hooking one of the 20 varieties of fish is a largely random affair. [June 2007, p.71]
  3. Seriously though some multiplayer should of been added. I would of liked to see some more lures as well since the selection was kinda on the light end.
  4. Gameplay and control, unfortunately, are the worst aspects of the title. I can usually live with poor graphics if gameplay is good and the controls are solid. Alas, you will become bored very quickly. This game is a real snoozer.

    Not bad, I do not understand that people cannot catch fish as I am almost finished the game within 2 weeks, the 3 day tournaments are a bit boring as catching the same fish for 3 days is not a thrill when u know what lure to use. Not a bad game to sit back and just chill. Easy achievements if you know what you are doing!!! Expand
