Watch me pull a rabbit outta my hat.

I'm hesitant to be too excited early on with this, because I don't want anyone to think it's a must have (and I'm sure bad reviews will come and make me look like an idiot who likes anything), but this game is fun like Sega Bass Fishing, though not quite as good.  Very arcady, but there are lots of fish (and other things) to catch, missions/challenges to complete, areas to unlock.  The biggest drawback is that it is not real time casting.  You throw the line as you'd expect (Hold B/Pull Back then Throw Forward/Release B) then watch the cast happen.  It feels pretty good, though.  I usually feel like a long cast happens because I released at the right time, for example.  Reeling in is done with the nunchuck (or with the d-pad if you don't feel like using the 'chuck).  The graphics are decent, but not fantastic.  I could have used more detail at the fishing spots.  And I would have preferred a more active shot for landing the fish.  Instead you get a cutscene of the thing leaping out of the water, then a shot with a stat screen.  There's nothing to really compare it to, though, so you have to go by the numbers for size.  Reeling it in is where the action is and they've made it active and pretty fun, so far.  You hook it by pulling back then watch a bar at the top of the screen as you reel-in.  If it drops too low, the fish will escape.  If it goes to high the line breaks.  Meanwhile, you respond to cues on the sides of the screen telling you to jerk left and right.  I've yet to try a tournament, as I'm still trying to land all the fish in at least one of the three areas I've unlocked so far.  If you've been interested in a fishing game on the Wii, this is worth a look.

Gamespot liked it.  7.0

Quote
The Good
Great arcade-style take on fishing   Landing a huge fish is immensely satisfying   More than 100 vividly detailed fish.
The Bad
Fishing spots aren't very pretty   Fun only in short spurts.

I will pick it up when it is cheap and only if Hooked doesn't end up better, I've always enjoyed video game fishing, and would love to have a decent Wii one.
