Best fishing game I have played

Fishing is not an easy sport to capture in a video game. Its either very simplistic and arcadey, or very realistic and boring. This is the first fishing game that actually manages to be both realistic and fun. Dont let the cartoony visuals fool you, this is a very deep fishing game, with lots of things to catch, and activities to do. You have an entire island to explore, and anywhere you see some water, you can try fishing there. From fishing off the dock of a tropical ocean, to freshwater lakes and even ice fishing on the mountain, its all there for you. The challenge comes in finding the right bait and lure for each location. I thought there werent anymore good Wii games, but this under-the-radar game really surprised me at how fun it was, but also how well the fishing action is presented. Extra credit is required for how well the fish are detailed. I recommend paying the extra $10 for the fishing controller. Once you manage to get it set up (not easy, by the way), it makes the fishing all the more interactive. A definite must-buy for fans of fishing, and I also recommend it for anybody that wants a peaceful experience. Hey, sometimes you gotta take a break from Call of Duty and Skyrim.

In general I'm not into fishing games but thought I'd give this one a shot. I was suprised to find it was actually a lot of fun if you like fishing. You walk around on a tropical island and can interact with people, shops, etc. What I like is you can fish from anywhere you want whether it be off the pier or take a boat out to any destination, buy all different kinds of poles, reels, bait, etc. I'd call this a full blown simulation because just like in real life, I also caught driftwood in the game. :) This has a very "wii sports resort" feel to it but immersive enough to capture your imagination. I would recommend this game to anyone that likes fishing.
