Rapala Pro Bass Fishing 2010 pits players against real-life fishing pros on top freshwater lakes across North America - only the finest techniques and equipment will determine who is the best of the best. For the first time ever in a fishing game, the competition is set up in a professional tournament structure and the action is presented as a live TV event with announcers (including Barry Brueland, the voice of InFisherman TV), live updates, competitive leader boards, analysis, and heart-pounding final weigh-ins. The competition gets tough as you fish through over 20 tournament events on your quest for the season trophy.

-Casting is intuitive and seems realistic but hooking and reeling in just doesn't feel "right"; it's too slow and there isn't really much feedback. It's like a mini-game trying to keep the fish in the middle of the screen (as the in-game coach will continuously tell you) and some of the "attacks" seem cartoonish.
- Audio is cool, but repetitive. Casting and reeling sound great, as does the boat...it's the announcer(s) that seems to have only a few lines to say.
-Tourneys are fun, but a little frustrating at first. It's cool that you get to fish against real pros on real lakes.
-Includes a decent amount (and decently recreated) of fish species. It's not just about catching large mouth bass.
-Graphics (considering it's a 5 year old Wii game) are ok, nothing special and not horrific.
This game falls right between Sega Bass Fishing and The Strike on the realism and fun scale. If you can find it for a decent price, pick it up.
A few things I don't like (all related to when you're reeling a fish in)
- You need to only reel in when the fish is in the center of the screen. So when the fish goes to the left, you twist the pole to the right. It's not intuitive, and in no way resembles a "real" fishing experience.
- It's not intuitive whether or not the line is about to break. They show a 2/3-prong hook, and one of the prongs sometimes goes yellow or red.
- If you're doing well, the screen sometimes gives you the opportunity for a "power move". I haven't read the manual, but so far, I think "power move" translates to "doing this will guarantee that the fish gets away." I don't get it. I would think a "power move" would help me.
- Apparently there's an objective to fishing trips, but it wasn't obvious. But I didn't read the manual...
A few things I do like:
- You don't need a rod/reel peripheral. I bought (rather nice) one from a local game shop. I was expecting the peripheral to add to the experience, but it doesn't do much, since you have to keep moving the rod back and forth to keep the fish in the center of the screen. Since nothing else I'm doing seems "real" (see comment above about keeping the fish centered), the reeling motion adds nothing. I found I had much more fun using "B" to reel in.
- The menus are navigable via the directional pad on the wii remote (rather than having to point the wiimote at the screen).
- Casting is easy. Driving the boat is easy.
- Overall, gameplay is fun.
I have not tried any other Wii fishing games. This one will probably suit my needs for a fishing game. Would recommend, but it has some flaws.
