Nostalgia of Super Nintendo

This game wasn't the worst game I've ever played. The achievements are very obtainable and the offer big paydays. The game itself reminded me off the games you would rent for Nintendo back in the day. They had a game for just about everything you could think of. I'm not a fan of the show, but I did enjoy messing around on this game. I like unique game play and this game was definitely out of the ordinary. The game is simple to understand, but there are frustrating moments. Things seem to happen with complete randomness. For example, I would replace my engine at port and then it would break with my first travel out to sea.
I would never buy a game like this but it was fun to rent for a couple of days. I recommend that you have at least a "two game out plan" so you don't disappoint yourself.

I have to say, the first one was way better than this one on so many levels. If they would have kept the core gameplay from the 1st and added the graphics and mini games into this one, it would have been great.

I will say, the mini games they have you do are pretty cool though. But it's nowhere close to the realism Alaskan Storm brings to the table. The only reason I kept the game for a few more days was to at least get a couple hundred gamerscore loOl

It's overall worth a RENT, but no where's close to a buy. I suggest playing the first if you already haven't!

I enjoyed the first installment because I am a fan of the show and being a real life sportsman, I have a real appreciation that fishing/crabbing/hunting etc can be incredibly boring at times. The first game was great in that it brought the realism as well as some mini-games and the video tour of the Northwestern. Being able to sit in the cockpit of the Cornelia, Northwestern, and Wizard was just icing on the cake.

The new game is a huge step backward and a cash grab if I ever saw one. The entire game has been reduced to a series of "season challenges" with 6 repetitive mini-games taking place within the challenges. I'm probably half way into the game and will admit this one stinks. Same old bad graphics with no real improvement in game play. If you aren't a fan of the show, avoid this one.
