    As much about the atmosphere of fishing as it is about bait and reel and line strength. [Sept 2003, p.97]

    The slower pace, low tech-specs and oddly non-intuitive angling make this title tough to love. [Sept 2003, p.38]

    I thought it was a great game. Very nice scenery and realistic fish movement. As relaxing and exciting as fishing gets....

    If you like fishing for real and you can't get out, this is as close to the real thing as possible. You don't catch a fish every If you like fishing for real and you can't get out, this is as close to the real thing as possible.
