I did not enjoy this game at all. With no manual it was impossible to figure out how to reel in the fish (meaning how to loosen or tighten rod tension). There are no in game tutorials or instructions. I played it a few times and then returned it because I couldn't figure it out. I'm sure there are real "gamers" out there who would have no trouble. But for a novice like me it was close to impossible.

We got this game for our 3 young boys to play. It was too hard for them, and it was too hard to us to figure out how to play. There really needs to be a "help" function--or the game needs to come with the manual. In 3 days of "fishing" none of us ever landed a fish--just got very frustrated. I would only recommend this game to experienced gamers.
