Product Description

You arrive in paradise, a beautiful resort on a tropical island where there's an abundance of sun, sand, and of course, fish! Being on vacation, you're free to spend the time however you see fit - get up early in the morning to go deep sea fishing, participate in the many varied activities that the resort has, or just spend a lazy day touring the aquarium. As the days pass and you become more familiar with the area and hone your fishing skills, you also get a sense of the best fishing spots that the island has to offer. Do you rent a bicycle and ride to a remote location to fish for trout by a waterfall? Or perhaps test your skill and luck by kayaking deep into the jungle to see what kinds of fish await? You can even scale the top of a local mountain to enter a different climate and go ice fishing - this is your vacation, the choice is completely up to you! Fishing Resort is a fishing game that takes place on a large tropical paradise and uses the Wii Remote to mimic the action of casting and the Nunchuk for reeling. After customizing the appearance of his/her avatar, the player is free to do as they wish, whether it be checking the resort's bulletin board for daily activities and contests, participating in any of the over 20 fishing-related mini-games, or go trolling the high seas on a charter boat in search of really big game such as giant swordfish. Despite being an island, this paradise offers lakes, streams, and even ice fishing high in the mountains in addition to the deep and shallow sea fishing that's sure to keep the casual and hardcore fishing fans alike coming back for more as they try to catch the over 200 varieties of fish available.

I was cautious of Fishing Resort, when a game is a new release and has a discounted price that is usually a red flag. But I ignored my "spidey-sense" and bought it (had to buy it with the rod, only one store in town had it and they only had one). I quickly discovered that I was wrong, Fishing Resort is a great game.

The beauty is in the simplicity: You're on vacation to Panagkapan Island (a tropical location that oddly has areas each with their own drastically different climate) and you're there to fish. The fish you catch earn you points (the currency on the island) and you use the points to buy new tackle and gear, as well as cloths for the character you create (you can't use you Mii, unfortunately). For those who want more substance, there are missions given by the other island-goers, daily activities to participate in (going trolling out in the ocean, catching specific fish for people, and competitions), as well as online leaderboards and new fish that are added via wi-fi (essentially, free dlc).

What I really enjoy is the cohesiveness: you wake up in your hotel room and make your way out to the beach. Don't want to walk? Purchase a bike for the day and go cycling. You never are required to accept missions or participate in extra activities (although it'll earn you more money), you can simply fish and enjoy the ambience. Too many fishing games I've tried are arcadey and break the immersion. This game embraces the quiet serenity of fishing.

As far as negatives go, the day night cycle is great but you're forced to go back to your hotel room when it gets too late (although eventually there is a way to stay out very late).

Bought this as a family gift for my nephews (9,15,18) - played for HOURS with the little one - we loved it. I don't enjoy fishing at all, but found this enjoyable and surprisingly - relaxing! I loved encouraging him as he fished around the island. "Our" skill level improved and our aquarium is filling up.

I enjoy experiencing the different scenes - so varied and as realistic as a Wii game can get. The characters you interact with can be hysterical.

I had so much fun with him that I had to go and get another copy for my home! I found it just as entertaining to play on my own. ( I too, played for hours, and have barely scratched the surface.) I love fishing on the lake. I even love taking vacation pictures all over the place - :-)

I'd suggest that you buy rods/reels/bait/lures before buying all of the aquarium rooms. Take the classes and learn all you can to catch lots of fish. It can get annoying chatting with kids in your aquarium who "tell" you that your empty aquarium isn't very good. (and the Wii characters do, it's crazy!) I can't believe I found myself trying harder to please Wii visitors at my aquarium. Silly-but fun!

I am a 40+ woman who has never fished in real life and I am totally addicted to this game! I absolutely loved the Endless Ocean series and this is the flip side to it. Still hoping for another installment of Endless Ocean but this helped. I don't know if it's the actual locations or the fish themselves but the location's are truly stunning at times. I can see the replay value of this game.

My husband is a very picky gamer and when I saw this game I figured, what the heck, he loves to fish, he might like it on those cold winter days when we are stuck inside. OMG this game rocks. He has nothing negative to say about it. He really loves the variety and building the fish tanks are his personal quest. Great game and if you know someone who loves to fish or just likes pretty scenery, get it,,, I am so glad I did. Thanks to the great reviews that helped me decide. Oh and I do agree, you really do not need the reel unless you just want another accessory to find a place for. Thanks Amazon for this great game offer!

Bought for our 13 year old son for Christmas praying he would at least try it out. He loves the WII and fishing plus the reviews were good and it was on sale half off. He has played it every day since Christmas Eve. He generally enjoys Mario type games and this is kind of along those lines. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Fishing Resort is the most recent game from Prope, known for titles like Let's Tap and Ivy the Kiwi. In addition, their founder, Yuji Naka, created games like Sonic the Hedgehog and many more classics while at Sega. I sure hope XSEED can localize Rodea the Sky Soldier, Prope's other most recent game, as soon as they get an update from Kadokawa, who has failed to get the game out even though it's been completed for a while now.

Fishing Resort is a friendly game to get into, yet there's a ton of depth thanks to how sophisticated it is. You can roam around, dress your character in different outfits and stuff, ride a bike and other ways of transportation, add all of your fish to a huge aquarium that you get all to yourself, as well as fishing. It really is a fishing role-playing game.

Many people may just see this game and dismiss it as another poorly made cheap Wii game, but they'd be ignorant to do so, because Fishing Resort is made by a group of veteran game designers and it shows. If you like Endless Ocean and other calm and soothing gaming experiences, you absolutely shouldn't miss out on Fishing Resort.
