    It may be realistic to have a fishing game where the fish are all in hiding or killed off by man-made pollutants, but it's certainly not much fun. [Oct/Nov 2003, p.91]

    You're given all of the headaches of a bad fishing trip but without the beer.

    If you're not bored with it in half-an-hour then you can come over to my place and watch the paint dry on the side of my garage. You will spend endless fascinating hours as the sun causes the underlying layers of latex to expand and bubble, eventually making the top coat flake off into little peel-able chips.
  4. With no training mode demonstrating how to best persuade a piscine creature into your boat, this game presents a painfully dull exercise in frustration.

    Rookies and vets alike will become annoyed at the tiny area of each lake and river they're actually allowed to fish in, as well as the fact that they get absolutely no hints as to where they should cast their lines for the best chance at catching the fish. [Sept 2003, p.56]

    I liked this game enough. I have the fishing rod controller which surely makes a difference. I suppose if I were playing it with the joystick I liked this game enough. I have the fishing rod controller which surely makes a difference. I suppose if I were playing it with the joystick I wouldn't like it so much. It's just good to have a fishing game, and this ain't so bad. Admittedly the graphichs straight-up blow. So does the music, but just turn the stereo on. Get the fishing rod controller and you can look past some big flaws. Full Review »
