we bought this game been looking for a good fishing game for the wii that would be like ur really fishing the only problems i had was with the controls first one was when i first got in the boat it when backward real fast and could not get it to go fowardthen i rember there was a warning on the game when u open it to change ur controll settings with the fishing rod once i change the settings the boat was all fine no problem driveing with it and the second was when u go to cast the marker does not always like to move when you are trying to cast and its take a bit to get the timeing down with the marker in the right areas and when you have to move the marker back up to cast but all and all the game is good but would like them to figure out the controls for the next game

I purchased this item with high hopes of coming home and emersing myself in a good fishing game for hours to come. My hope were dashed when I got home and got my char all set up, took the time to put my controls in fishing pole that was provided. Then failure, ran my boat aground first thing. The controls for the boat are supposed to be the winder on your pole. I could work around this though. I took the nun-chuck out and was just going to hold that and still use my fishing pole. So I get my boat into place and parked and get ready to cast. Bad cast, try again, bad cast again. This went on for 5 mins. I decide to take the controller outta the pole so it doesn't get in the way. Try again, cast 1ft in front of me. At least I got my line in the water. Then another bad cast, and another. It wasn't the pole that was causing my problems. I called my husband in and him try out the new game that I could not get to work right. He didn't have any better luck than I did. He worked with it for a few hours. The game has such good potential. The graphics are great and the few times we did get a fish hooked the controls were great. But to only get your line in the water after a few times in as many hours was not fun and simply irritating. For the overall game-play I give this game two thumbs down.
