Really Bad

Almost Deliberately Bad

Wow. I am beyond stunned with the near complete failure of this game to live up to its potential. REEL FISHING ANGLERS DREAM is apt only in that it might put you to sleep out of boredom. The pace of the game is slow which, were this game better executed, would be a compliment but here is is condemnation. It seems that the atmospherics were the primary focus of the builders and in fact are the only reason this game gets ANY points from me.
I am an avid fisherman IRL and was hopeful for a game that utilized the Wii systems unique controller possibilities. Alas, no. Something simple like casting out your line is unnecessarily cumbersome. While retreival and fighting are simply silly.
In short, REEL FISHING ANGLERS DREAM, is more of a nightmare of failed possibility and a dream realized of poor execution. If you have this in your Q then you should release it. Perhaps over time it will grow into something that might warrant your attention. For now....I continue my search for a decent fishing game.

The game title looks good, packaging looks good, but the game play is of no interest. Played this game for 15 minutes before it became boring and non-challenging. Story mode is boring and slow, versus mode after learning how to finally get the rod to cast was too easy to catch fish.

I would not recommend this game.
