AJS's: Fishing Craze Review
This game lasts for a fair-amount of time, assuming you won't play this game for an extended amount of time. The only real challenge to this game is trying to get your fish in the boat without pelicans swallowing them or getting your line sliced by a swordfish, and all of the animal-like 'bad guys' can become annoying and very frustrating if your not to skilled and quick with that computer mouse. The graphics and gameplay to this game are very cartoonish and the game is more focused for younger children but it can still be fun to play, I enjoyed it, although there isn't much to do once you beat the game. I wouldn't recomend this game at full price, but it's a nice change of pace if you enjoy arcade games with upgrades and simple objectives.

Just like real fishing!... not.
When I first started the game I was like, "Are you serious? This has to be a joke!". But as the game added in obstacles and different elements it did grow on me a little. In this game you are competing in fishing tournaments around the country, each fish you catch awards you points. You can upgrade your boat and lures as you collect enough money. Nothing was really challenging, mostly just annoyances with birds eating my fish. I did find it funny that there were sharks, porpoises AND whales in a Texas lake! Wow, whoulda thought?! Not a terrible game though, I would consider buying it if it was on a good sale. Probably more for my kiddo than me.

Surprizingly fun game
Normally i do not like this type of game, but this one kept my interest enough to purchase it! Challenging goals that are obtainable with a little skill and a lot of luck! gameplay changes as you go along so it does not get too repetitive.

Love This Game!
Many have said this is a kids game & not thrilling enough for adults, but I really enjoyed playing it. The game itself is a simple catch fish kind of game, with added obstacles & targets to meet. True it's not that "thrilling", but it is great if u want a nice, relaxing game instead of the intensely challenging games.

"Bill Dance outdoors" it is not
The game is well below par at best. It starts very cute, catching fish and scoring points to upgrade your items. Then it just overwhelms by the 2nd tournament, with every thing they can throw at you to keep you from catching fish. It wasn't fun anymore. This game had the right concept, but it got lost on the 3rd lake.

Love it...something the whole family could have fun playing!
Biggest trick is timing it right to drop your line. Most important part is making sure your boat is underneath the fish you caught so it lands in the boat and not back in the water.
Everyone could get into this. Pretty fun game.

Not for me
There are some people that will like this game, as for me I did not. The graphics are cartoonish and I feel that it is geared more towards kids.

Fun game, but it can be annoying
I saw the sample video of this game, and at first thought, "No, it doesn't look like a game I would enjoy." Boy was I wrong. I love this game!
As others have said, you are in a fishing tournament and you get points/money based on how many fish you catch. That sounds easy enough, but at times, to me, it was highly annoying. That darn birds snatched most of my fish (I guess I hadn't gotten the swing of using my mouse correctly to catch the fish). What's more, there are other enemies you have to battle in order to catch fish.
I think some developers of games, in an attempt to make a game challenging, go a little to far. Even though I enjoyed the game, sometimes, especially with those darn birds, it would make me a bit frustrated. Also, there are other things you have to battle as well, and all at the same time!
Anyway, I would recommend this game if you have patience.
