This is my first review and i have read and understand the Gamefly Guidelines and will follow them as instructed.
The good: hmmm... the scenery was nice and having the trolling motor was a great benefit as well. the graphics underwater were really nice as well.
The Bad: Tournament?? against who? father time? i was very disappointed in that part. but i played through it. i landed a 25 lb large mouth and i didn't see any achievement points for that. (I was shocked) so i looked at what achievement points there were and there are only 9 (i think) and none of them have to do with catching a Lunker. upon further review of the achievements, i saw that this was going to be a quick way to get some serious points....boy was i wrong.
I played the first 2 lakes with no problem. never lost one fish. but when i got the one where you have to catch 20lbs of spotted bass, i never got one in the boat. no matter what i did, the line either snapped or the fish got off the hook. 45 mins of trying to land ONE spotted bass and never getting anywhere near the boat. so i gave up.
I took the game out and put it right back in the gamefly envelope and back in the mail box, after about an hour and half of play.
and on a side note, i wasn't able to gain any achievement points. that being said, this was just my experience, and MAYBE i was doing something stupid when i was trying to land the spotted bass, because i saw lots of reviews saying it was fun and easy, but not worth buying because it lacked re-play value.
so take this with a grain of salt. again this was just my experience.
I give this game a 2 based on graphics alone. There are many glitches and even froze when reeling in fish. I never write game reviews, but i was so disappointed and angry that I just wanted to warn you guys how disappointed you will be. If you are a fisherman, save yourself the hassle and just hit the lake instead.
