Let me preface this review by saying that I am a huge fan of the Discovery Channel series....

After long-awaited anticipation, I can't even tell you how excited I was to pop this into my XBOX, however, I have been sorely disappointed and this game has not lived up to my expectations. Here are my thoughts:

- Unless you have a considerably large television, you will struggle to play this game. The text is impossibly small to read and even with a 40" HDTV, I sometimes have problems seeing what is going on. I originally tried playing this game on a much smaller screen and found that I had to be within inches of the surface to read both the menus or the tips that sometimes pop up.

- There is a very sharp learning curve... even after reading the manual and doing the tutorials (twice, I might add), I'm finding it difficult to negotiate the career mode. Luckily, there are many online gamer forums that I have been able to help me figure out the parts that I missed somehow... (thank you thank you!)

- Time... To be honest, the main reason that I've already lost interest in the game is the slow pace of play. When setting a string of pots there is no way to speed up time, so basically you putter along until the crew has prepared the next pot to be dropped... which takes almost a minute. If you're like me, and looking for a game that is going to capture your attention- this is not for you. I actually ended up doing dishes while setting a string of pots last night, hitting the drop the pot button in-between each plate because I could not bear to sit and just stare at the screen while the crew loaded the pot with bait... Luckily, there are parts where you can speed up time but not many as you cannot whenever there is a pot on deck (i.e.

Look, I'll be honest. This isn't the most graphically advanced game in the world (in fact, it's been likened to that of a PS2 game) and it's not the most action packed.

BUT, if you would like to play a game that's accurate to the Discovery Channel show and the lives of the men who are on it then this is the game for you! :)

Sure, the game play is slow and it takes a long time to finish a season, but guess what, so does the real thing. This is more of a simulator like The Sims where the game play is slow but it's the simulation that makes it fun. If you're looking for action packed high seas adventure, you might want to just pick up a copy of Pirates of the Caribbean on DVD.

The IGN review said it best in that it is what it is. This is the best Crab Fishing game available and is true to the show and the crab fishing industry.

Overall, as a fan of the show and a gamer, I've enjoyed the game a lot! If you're going to buy this game, just don't expect it to be something it's not.

This is the most disappointing game to come along in a LONG TIME - I simply don't understand the other reviews giving this a recommendation. When Game Informer magazine gets ahold of this, I'm predicting they give it a 2 out of 10. And that's being generous. Where to begin?

There's a semblance of fun when you pick your crew and the kid says, "Capt, I've got a girl in my bunk and my girlfriends headed this way, can you stall her?" You can either help or not. What you decided to do has absolutely ZERO influence in the game. The question itself gives you hope that there's interaction and decisions to be made in the game....WRONG. After that, the game spirals down to the most BORING game ever created quickly. And, yes, I am a fan of the TV show so the disappointment is magnified.

So you pick your boat, slap your own name on it, and paint it to your liking. That sounds like a big thing but it really isn't as you hardly ever pan around to the front of the boat (no need to) to see your custom name.

OK, back to picking your crew. First off, it's a short list and you can't create your own. I picked my crew and before I even dropped my first pot, the girl gave herself a hernia. The appointed "medic" gives me the report that "He's got a hernia, we should probably drop him off next time we're in port." HE'S got a hernia?! Huh?!

Moving on, you only have 1 question for the crew "How are you doing?" and they've only got 1 response "Doing great!" Occasionally as they begin to get tired they'll give you 1 or 2 complaints like "I need a break" or "You can't work with cold hands." But that's it, there's absolutely no real-time interaction. There's also ZERO interaction down in the galley. As in, you tell someone to cook a meal and they disappear off the deck.

Ok, so I finally broke down and ordered Alaskan storm on amazon. After reading the reviews, I have to say I was a little wary ordering the game, and I'm a HUGE fan.

So I ordered it, and after going through the training and starting my career, I've noticed that this game is everything I expected or wanted. I FEEL LIKE I'M CRAB FISHING, not in an arcade. Sure, the graphics are not that great, and the crew doesn't chatter away the whole time. But what did everybody expect? This is a sim-u-lation. This is the closest you and I will EVER get to steering a crab boat through a king or opi season. People complain about not being able to speed up time as much as they would like, but what do you expect? This isn't an arcade game. This is a good honest look at what you would experience in real life. Setting pots takes time, and this isn't TV. You can't edit all that out in real life. Yeah, the season is long...it is in real life too.

If you want a serious look at a crab fishing simulation game, this be it. Maybe it's me, but I love the game. I started playing last night around 10pm, and the next thing i knew, it was 4am and the King season had just wrapped up. So yes, it does take a little time to complete a season. However, if your a big fan of Deadliest Catch, it may be worth your while to check this out.
