I am a huge fan of harvest moon games, which is also the maker of the river king gamesl I decided to rent this off gamefly, and buy one for the ps2. this was a trillion times better than the one for ps2 and it is a nice little fun game to play when you are bored.
HOWEVER I would not recommend buying this game because you could beat it in a week. Its a good game to rent though.

Ugh! I wish this was a better game. I tend to LOVE fishing in RPGs, but I have yet to find a fishing game that is fun enough on its own to want to play it.

The game itself is cutesy. Fishing is easy once you get the hang of it. The problem is that it's BORING once that it turns easy. At least there are different rods, lures and baits. The problem is that the fishing is pretty much all of the same actions performed over and over.

Kudos to the manufacturers (Natsume -- one of my all-time favorites) for trying to weave in a story. Too bad that the story is pretty lame.

Pets were a neat concept that were either useless (the fox) or a one-trick pony (the bear and others). Their only use was to tell where "hidden" items were.

Overall, it was a decent rent. I did NOT finish the game. I got to the 5th level. Then I got bored.

This game was not working when I received it. I sent it back the same day I got it.
