Much like real-world fishing, Fishing Master for the Wii requires some time and plenty of patience before it pays off.

In the beginning it is an over simplified, cartoony excuse to fling your WiiMote in the air and perform silly wrist actions with the Nunchuck. During that first hour you can pretty much figure out exactly how to bring in every catch and recognize when the fish will definitely get away.

DescriptionThis unassuming and simple fishing game starts slow but eventually reels you in with its 100+ types of fish to find and the addictive thrill of the catch. The reduced price is also a nice lure.
