GAMES REVIEWS By: Ponderosa Review: Wii - Hooked! Again: Real Motion Fishing If you are looking for a great fishing game, this is a waste of time. Move on to a different one. Fast! Hooked! Again: Real Motion Fishing, is not an action game as this is one of the most boring and uneventful fishing games ever suffered through. Typically, a game might offer some kind of advice as to what kinds of fish live in the lake you are about to be fishing in or have suggestions as to what kind of lures you should use in order to be the most successful at catching the fish in those lakes. That is not the case with this game. Here, you can forget about any guidance. It is up to you to determine what lures to use and if you would prefer the natural looking lure over the colorful, artificial type. The player has to make the lure mimic a fish that has been wounded. Of course, the game does not give you any kinds of hints as to how exactly to accomplish this, making it more of a trial and error sort of experience. That leads to the player to make one error after another. With no guidance and not even any accidental success, this fishing game is in no way fun to play. No matter how many times you cast your line, you only realize that absolutely no fish is interested in biting. All the screen displays is a sad little lure smack in the middle of a vastly empty body of water. If you do actually hook a fish, the game becomes entirely too frenzied. The voice-over cannot even finish a single sentence before moving on to the next one. This ends up sounding something like, "Raise the. Watch the. Hook. Lower the." It is extremely irritating. The game also changes the assigned position of the Wii remote far too many times. Once you are whipping around the remote for a bit, you lose the fish to a broken line or the hook popping out. The action here needs to be slowed down for a more enjoyable experience. The tournament mode is the same as the practice mode and the time trial mode. All of the items or bonuses that are unlockable are not worth the time, as they are useless when it comes to catching fish with all of the faulty mechanics of the game. If you are looking for a great fishing game, this is a waste of time. Move on to a different one. Fast!
