4.0 out of 5 stars If you like fishing at all, get this game! September 30, 2009
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Bundle with Fishing Rod
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
At first pass this game might not seem like much, but after I learned all the moves (there is a tutorial in career mode) I began to really get excited about this game. The fish sometimes are stubborn, they fight hard and I have lost a lot of lures already to snags and broken lines. Also at the time of this writing, I am #37 on the largest fish caught leaderboard. Upgrading equipment makes a real difference in catching the fish, so upgrade often. The game gives good lure tips for each location and fish for those who are less than knowledgeable about what to use for each fish. The 10 locations are well-rendered with a day-cycle that has a noticeable effect on fishing.

The rod and reel control at first feels awkward and I kept fumbling for different buttons, but I soon figured out the logic.

You can somewhat customize your 'character' but a little more options such as sunglasses, hat etc would have been nice. Also once you choose your options you can't change it for that profile, but you have several profile slots.

The achievements seem pretty straight forward, especially for BPS first time out into gaming.

In future editions, we could hope to see more locations, more kinds of fish ( I was hoping for some rainbow trout), more ways to customize your character and more upgrades.

This game is NOT a deep immersive story-line, nor a thrill a second action game. What it is however is a fun, entertaining game that does it's best to realistic and engaging to anybody who has any interest in fishing. It's a game I'll keep and play long after I get the full 1000 gamerpoints...at least until the next one comes out!

3.0 out of 5 stars If you like to fish, this is the game for you June 16, 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Bundle with Fishing Rod
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is really fun, and crazy addictive. The only warning I'd give is that learning to cast accurately can a be a little difficult. I also had a defective controller out of the box, so be cautious when you buy your copy of "The Strike". Overall it's a great game, and if you love to fish, you'll love playing this game.

It's one of those products that you just know is either going to suck, or be a whole lot of fun. Luckily, "The Strike" with the motion control fishing pole falls into the latter category, and is very enjoyable. Just be patient with learning how to cast!

4.0 out of 5 stars FISHING October 1, 2009
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Bundle with Fishing Rod
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The Game overall is good. The new fishing controller for the 360 I think is lacking responsivness. I think the Wii controller would be better. I got it for the 360 for mainly graphics, but also becuase it seemed to have a better overall controller. But the graphics aren't that good for an xbox 360 game. I would compare the graphics to that on the Wii. The making of your character is really weak, just a few options, but I expected that. The casting is pretty difficult if you don't go through the tutorial first...But I think the casting action for this game is unnecessary. Its not like a smooth cast as if you were actually fishing but I guess that just adds more difficulty to the game....

****THE GOOD**** The game is fun, the career mode is really good. You start out like a regular angler that has a $[...] gift card to Bass Pro Shop. So you go in and buy the lures you want, which has a lot better selection of lures unlike the other fishing games. The catching of the fish is hard sometimes but you get the hang of it. The bass tourny's in the game are realistic so they are hard if you can't find the fish, but very fun. So overall I think they did a good job my only complaint is the controller, it think they could have done better, but it is still a good setup. Hope this helped you and you enjoy. Thanks for reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Game after you learn the casting March 26, 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Bundle with Fishing Rod|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Purchased this game with a big savings from getting at Best Buy or Walmart - game came fast and packaging was a little hurried i thought but still the game and fishing rod is a blast. Took about an hour to figure out how to cast the thing - the instructions in the book are not too clear so would reccomend getting online and watching the tuturial that is availabe by video. Once you have the casting down it is a blast - i have never fished with a lure before and this is a good training tool for that purpose and when you do get a bite the rod feels just like a real rod with a fish fighting on the end .. the fish sometimes leap out of the water when putting up a good fight!. the fishing rod is made of plastic and could of been made better as it feels like it might break at any given moment .. but as for realism -hands down the best fishing game out there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellant fun fishing from my living room! May 17, 2011

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I get wrapped up with my job, not able to get off the property much. I have had the fishing bug for a while and saw this fishing game. I am glad I gave it a try. I really enjoy the fishing experience with the rod. The graphics are nice and the overall gameplay is fairly realistic and fun. You can feel the first hit and the fight of the fish. I have to admit I probably would not like it quite as much without the rod controller.
It is relaxing and fun to just start fishing when I get a chance.
I do think the manual could use a few more details and entries, explaining the fishing experience. The game could use a few
tweeks also, like a quick save mode and map marking.
For those who like fishing, or can't get the time to go, I highly recommend this game.

Took a while to figure out the control rod. Then put it away and just used the normal X-Box controller which was much easier. Haven't played it in a while.
