I recently purchased the game and was very disappointed. From the beginning I was reluctant to play the game because I found out quickly that I already own this game. Anyone who has Cabelas Monster Bass for PS2 will not like this game. IT IS THE EXACT SAME GAME!! Same lakes, same tournaments, same same same!! The only thing that was different is that since Rapala made this one, the lures were given the Rapala trademark names. So even if you can pass up the fact that you already own the game, the game play itself is not funtional enough to keep you satisfied. The PS3 sixaxis controller movements are too hard to keep up with. I felt as if I was in a boxing match rather than fishing. You are constantly flinging the controller around trying to get the movements down which in itself was an impossible feat. And you cannot change the controls. The only thing that was satisfying about the game were the graphics. The graphics are VERY realistic. Challenge is minimal. You always hook a fish (if you can get the controls down). If you miss the first attempt there will always be a second. The variety of fish was low. There are only bass in the beginning and then new fish can be unlocked. In open fishing your chances at catching anything but a bass are none. I am a very displeased customer and hope this was helpful!
