Nothing Deadly about this Catch

Fans of the Discovery Channel, Deadliest Catch, who want to get their hands on some King Crab, can do it from the safety of their own home with Deadliest Catch: Sea of Chaos.
Your job is to buy a boat, hire crewmembers, and go out into the rough Bearing sea and catch crab.
When you buy a boat, you get several different types of fishing vessels - some are large and slow but can carry lots of crab, some are faster, but carry less crab. You can do minor adjustments to each ship’s appearance.
When you get your crewmembers, each of them has a price paid in a percentage of money you make. Better fishermen will want a bigger cut, but if you’re cheap, you will end up with a crew that’s not seaworthy.
After you get your ship and crew, it’s time to head out and get your crab. When you leave the harbor, you go to a map filled with red spots - places with crab. Different spots have different amounts of crab - from very little to a whole lot. You pick a spot, head out, then start fishing via mini games.
First, you set the cages. Here, you drive your ship over the ocean looking for circles with numbers attached to them. You drive into the circle and drop the cage in the middle of that circle. You repeat until you have placed all the pots.
Then, you pickup the cages. Here, you watch as buoys float by, and as they get near your guy, you toss out a rope and hit the buoys to bring in the pots.
Next job: to sort the catch in the pots into two piles: large crab and everything else.
Finally, you get to unload your load back in port by tossing crab into a net while avoiding a crane and after that, you get paid, then go out and do it all over again.
Some other things might happen - you have to maintain the boat and crew, but mostly it’s you playing the same few mini games while fishing for crab.
And that’s the biggest turn off for the game - it get monotonous after a short while. Deadliest Catch: Sea of Chaos just doesn’t have the feel of the TV show. SKIP IT.

The wii game is not what I expected at all! First of all, it was hard to understand how to do the moves and second of all it was a very repatative game. Just doing the same things over and over again gets old. My husband was looking forward to this game but after about 20 minutes of me playing it he was not at all interested. Moves were jerky and it doesn't really go along with the reality series. The cd-rom version is alot better if you ask me. Pros: you can somewhat design your own boat (choose the colors of it) and you have some choices of where to take your boat.
