Realistic Like it or Not

After reading almost exclusively negative reviews to this game I rented it anyway. Alot of people said you couldn't catch fish. I caught about fifty averaging about 5pounds each. My 7 year old son caught one that was over 13 pounds and one that was an amazing 16 pounds plus! This game is realistic. You don't always catch fish when you really go fishing. That's why they call it fishing not catching! The game is the same way. You have to know a little about real fishing. You fish near cover, bridges, dead trees, docks, etc. not in open water. You must fish with the right bait at the right depth. Then add a measure of Patience! The game becomes very fun in tournament mode once u unlock some lures. Happy Fishing!

written as a total novice fisherman and a complete stranger to bass fishing altogether, i will say that as a non-fisherman i found the game mildly entertaining. kind of a veg-out game. admittedly not a fisherman, i can't really comment on how realistic the fishing is. i can say it is close to what i have experienced.....in general....(a little more line breaking and fish coming unhooked than i remember but..) and i think that there is a little science in "finding" the fish in this game, which makes it a bit more challenging, but then again, i have no idea how to find them for real so you can decide how to process that. i can say that the game play is relatively easy to understand and the actual act of fishing and landing the fish is kind of fun but even with the "tournament" mode, this game can get pretty boring. great rent, not a good buy. it's pretty repetitive and the music goes from bad to down right unbearable after a while. that sounds petty, i know but unless you are a closet, professional bass fisherman who is currently a couch potato, i think that they are the truly important points here. the game play is what you are going to ultimately have to live with.....fun for a while, then send it back!

Great mindless game

This is a great mindless game. The gameplay is extremely repetative and there are a few very frustrating areas where there just seem to be no fish. It is challanging to get the fish to the boat without breaking the line. My sportman husband who hates video games played it for weeks.
