This review is from: Fishing Resort - Nintendo Wii (Video Game)
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!
