Like most people I read the reviews of the games I am interested in playing. This one is far better than most have suggested.
I don't have the fishing rod controller and yet I still found the game to be challenging and rewarding. The camera angel is just off the lure, providing a great view of fish behavior. Using the standard 360 controller I could not figure out how to let the line out on larger fish, yet I was still able to catch the legendary fish with a lot of patience.
All in all well worth the rental if your a fisherman.

Fishing is fun but this is an insult to all fishermen! The graphics are terrible and I understand all fish are different, but the fish only seem to eat one type of bait. Some people like me can't understand why they cant make it realistic and more fun. My examples are:
1: Bad graphics
2: Fish are hard to find even with the fish finder
3: Catching the fish is annoying
4: When i lose your bait in quick play, i cant get it back, no store in QP
5: Most fish eat more than one bait type
Terrible!!! The Game froze up with a fatal error on the fifth tourney and I could not advance. Graphics were so so and the game play was horrific and lame. Definitely the worst fishing game ever and quite possibly the one of the worst games I've ever played. At least in the top ten worst anyway.
