This was a Christmas Hit!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Fishing Resort with Fishing Rod Controller - Nintendo Wii (Video Game)
My son absolutely loves this game. He says this is his favorite Wii game of all. He stayed up past midnight Christmas night playing the game. I enjoy watching him. This really is a cool game.

I am not a fisher, but I think this game would be fun for me and my family. However after reading most of the Wii fishing bundle reviews, it seems as if the rod is flimsy. My question is, if I were to buy just the game, would the game be as much fun and realistic using just the regular Wii remote. Or is the game a better experience with the pole, or is the pole indeed "crap".

How old is your son? Wondering if my 4 yr old son can play it. Thanks!

Hi - My son was 7 at the time of the purchase. Your son may be a little too young at this time but that doesn't mean you won't love it. It takes some coordination to play the game and the player needs to react based on certain queues. It's really involved with many decisions to make and it's better if the player can read or someone is there to read the pop-ups to him. Happy Holidays!

We don't have the rod. You just need a remote + numchuck so your can simulate the motions.

To clarify, we dont have the rod but we have the rod controller that came with this bundlle. At first,, the controller was helpful to teach my son the motions and then after he became more skilled, he found it easier and quicker to just use the remote and numchuk. Hope this helps!
