In all honestly, while Fishing Sim World hasn’t got me hooked for the long term, I can see myself biting and going back for more from time to time. It may not try to inject any joy or personality into the sport, but it offers what is the most realistic representation of it to date. Sitting in the middle of a lake with the sunlight reflecting off the water, it’s hard to not be calmed by your time spent with it. Well, until you have a bite on your line and you have to quickly spring into action to do battle.
Fishing Sim World offers a soothing, robust and faithful representation of its real-world counterpart. I take issue with the game’s lack of atmosphere and its hands-off tutorial system, but outside of that, there’s little else to scoff at here. When all is said and done, Fishing Sim World manages to tick many of the boxes that it needed to, it’s deep, diverse and packed with choice.
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.
