As an Eagle Scout in the Boys Scouts of America, I’ve casually fished dozens of times. I know what it feels like to walk that fine line between patience and anticipation while holding a rod. That’s the part of fishing Fishing Sim World failed to simulate. The energy. There’s simply nothing exciting about catching fish in this game.
The graphics could have been brushed up a little in terms of the backgrounds, but there's so much to do here that you should be kept entertained for a time. Just don't play for too long in one sitting as it can become repetitive. We have to agree that it's the most realistic angling game, it's certainly the most realistic that we've played, but we're not sure it's going to wow many new fans, or really make a splash in the pond of console gamers.
The process of landing fish swiftly becomes routine, leaving only the boredom of waiting for a bite. It may be realistic, but it’s also joylessly tedious. A ruthlessly realistic simulation which not only has no interest in being a video game but also seems intent on making fishing seem as drab and mechanical as possible.
