This game is pretty fun for Kinect. The only thing is, I was looking for more of a realistic fishing game... It's definitely different as far as fishing goes. Reminds me of a quirky arcade type game. Very easy and definitely a pick up and play type game. If you're looking for a hardcore fishing game, this is not it. If you want to have fun on the Kinect, this is something even the kids can enjoy.
The Kinect game for fishing is good like you are actually in a fishing game but in Kinect. Activision has done a good job on doing the gameplay for fishing generations. But It is also a good game for the fishing fans. It is also something to play if you want to do fishing so you could catch fish.
The rental experience was not so good. I couldn't find a tutorial mode and the game just dumped me into the scenario. I followed the arrows and body shapes as best I could to figure out how to play the game. Fine, I figured it out. And then stopped when it threw up a shape out of Hole In The Wall. I had to point my left hand to 11 o'clock my right hand to 5 o'clock and hold my left knee in the air to keep from losing the fish. No joke. This is NOT fishing. It's an act of exercize, hand/eye coordination and brain activity trying to figure out what the developers were thinking. If you're an overweight slob living in your mom's spare bedroom to do anything except be active... but you love fishing...this might the game for you.
The graphics are horrible. After all these years they can make a shooter for 50 or 60 bucks that can handle tons of action. This has no action and was built on an Atari budget but they still want retail prices for a 5 dollar game that Doritos should have made because they make pretty cool arcade games for free.
That's my final answer. Frito Lay should have made this game for free and used Cheetos for bait while fishing for a cheetah.
Now that would have been entertaining!!!! This game isn't.
