Rated 2 out of
Possibly Activision's WORST release ever.
Being a fisherman, i was excited to hear that there was an actual fishing game for kinect. I had thought about how cool it would be, making reeling motions, driving the boat, casting, etc. i had to pick it up. Though i couldn't find it in any stores or Gamestop i went ahead and rented it. And let me say, BIGGEST LET DOWN ever. The game gets a 4 from me because of horrible gameplay, dated graphics, cheesy music, and just an overall outdated feel to it. The bad gameplay will have you swatting at the tv without actually casting the rod, and the way you cast is really awkward, using your left hand to navigate where you want your line to go, and swatting your right to cast it, though its hard to get the hang of. Also instead of reeling in the fish, you get to tug at the fish. Along with cheesy animations and the fact that the it says HOOKED EVEN BEFORE the fish gets to the lure, i highly suggest that you CAST AWAY FROM THIS BAD FISH. This could possibly be Activision's worst releases ever. I REALLY WANTED TO LIKE THIS GAME, but i just can't.
