A fishing arcade with very good graphics
You may have fond memories of this game from back in the day, if your local arcade featured this SEGA product. Or maybe you remember it if you played games released on the Wii or other current gen (Xbox 360, PSN) consoles. The fact is, while very narrowly dedicated to fishing, the game captures the experience in its arcade like manner quite well. You pick your avatar, jump in a boat and then are tasked with launching your rod, while previously having to pick your bait. The animations and the water look really cool and the game has a slew of different fish species, each one requiring their different type of tactics to be caught. The game is best played with a controller, even more so with a controller that has some form of feedback or at least vibrations. The game is not necessarily relaxing, but quite relentless, and the fishes will put on a fight, requiring attention and patience to get them in your boat. But, ultimately, the restricted gameplay will begin to bore you quite soon, and if you're into real fishing it won't really teach you much about the sport. Give it a try if you really can't swing your rod in a near-by pond or stream, for real!
