Pros: Lots of choices in lures, tournament fishing mode is decent
Cons: Poor use of the Wii remote, not much fish variety per area, gets old fast
I got this game in my "Wii package deal", where I had to choose 3 games on the spot. I regret buying it. It was fun for the first few days, but now I never touch it... I actually gave it away to my brother in law, and I don't even think he plays it. The tournament mode is cool because you have different challenges, and there are a TON of selections of lures. But, this game was disappointing because there are AT MOST 2 kinds of fish per area, and the reel in function is a joke. You basically just hold down on the 'A' button the whole time, and there are fish (like the rainbow trout) that seem to almost always throw the hook, no matter what you do. Also, when it comes to netting the bigger fish the screen that comes up was very confusing, and there are NO instructions on how to do it in the manual. I had to go online to find out and after that it was simple enough, but the lack of instructions was frustrating. I would rent this game for a weekend just to see how you like it, and by the time it is due, you will most likely be ready to return it.
