This Cabelo's game was terrible compared to the Cabelo's for the Wii. The gun is huge and you have to stand the whole time to play, as opposed to the Cabelo's for the Wii, where you could sit to play. The target on-screen often disappears while the game is ongoing so you miss shots. You also have to calibrate the gun each time you turn the game on -- which is really annoying and there is no option to turn this off to keep this from happening.
I purchased this game as a birthday gift for my husband, whom loves fishing. I assumed you would actually use the hand movements and lean back to really \"reel\" the fish in. Not the case at all. The person on the screen shows you what hand motions or moves to make to get the fish. Not as realistic as I expected. My husband doesn't like it, doesn't play it at all. However, my 4 year old daughter LOVES it and plays it on a daily basis. The game itself is wonderful, just not what I thought it was going to be.
I would recommend this if Walmart would advertise correctly. I bought this and I printed out the description because they are saying it does not come with the rod and reel. Yet it states that no where in the description. The description makes it sound as though it comes with it. I am so PO'd cuz you cannot buy the rod and reel separate. I have checked. I have to do what is called buy a bundled game now and so I will have 2 of these games only because on the back of the box it says you can use your controller but that sucks to high heaven. And I cannot return the game to walmart cuz it is game and has to be in plastic and their customer serivce is like too bad so sad for you. Well I am now writing a letter to walmarts CEO and I printed out the entire webpage including the code so incase they alter it I have printed proof. You can do that by viewing the source of the code. I am so tired of walmart and their lack of proper descriptions.
