Deadliest Catch: The Game could have been a fantastic experience. However, this simulation title is unfortunately held back by bugs, glitches, and clumsy controls. Yet, I still enjoyed its moreish action. Once you hire a full crew, the game takes a life of its own. From here, you can enjoy the relaxing sea and the profits that you'll make.
Even without the game breaking bugs, Deadliest Catch: The Game will test your patience with its monotony and repetitiveness. I’m actually a fan of ‘boring’ simulator titles like these, but when the game is constantly a frustration and requires you to restart through no fault of your own, it’s difficult to recommend until hopefully fixed. With a big name endorsement I was hoping to be competing against some of the great Captains and iconic ships, but with the lack of any multiplayer and more bugs than crabs, it might be best to wait until next season to go crabbing.
Deadliest Catch: The Game is dull, hard to operate and looks awful. Most importantly, the way that the controls operate manage to suck what little fun going crabbing has out of the game. The result is a mess that you would do well to avoid.
