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.
