I played this game last night for my first time and had a BLAST with it. I love to fish in real life and found this game very fun. At least the fish bite sooner in this game than they have in real life for me. lol I had problems at first learning how to reel in a fish but once I did I started landing more fish. I'm going to buy this game for myself as I see myself playing it. Even my husband played it a little bit to help me figure out how to do it. I can see us playing against each other on it. I haven't gotten very far yet in the game but I like the idea of earning points to buy bait and a new pole. Now that I'm figuring out to bring in the fish I won't be wasting my bought bait or hopefully less anyway. If you like/love recreational fishing this is a game for you to try out. Rent it and you'll have fun with it!
