“Nice day for fishin’, ain’t it? Hu-ha!”

Pardon me for quoting VLDL’s annoying (yet adorable) NPC Baelin’s one-liner at the beginning of my post, but this line perfectly describes the feeling you get when playing the Ultimate Fishing Simulator I tell ya.

The music, the graphics, the comforting environment…let’s dive straight into this Ultimate Fishing Simulator Review of mine, shall we?

Overview of Ultimate Fishing Simulator

It can get confusing for a start for total newbies but once you familiarize yourself with the game interface, it gets much easier. Don’t worry if you have no knowledge about real world fishing because I don’t either!

You go through a tutorial then after that, you are on your own to make a mark in this surreal fishing world, starting at Betty Lake.

Ultimate Fishing Simulator: Gameplay

You can choose the different fishing habitats you like (you can access 7 different maps for the base game), in which certain environments will house specific types of fishes. Just play around and experiment with the different reels, lines, baits and fishing techniques as you go along – even if you don’t know what you are doing, they have a guide with recommended weather and fishing techniques to catch certain types of fishes.

The game has a fish guide for you to read up on the different species, including best fishing methods and weather conditions to catch ’em all.

You earn money from selling your catch, and with the cash, you can buy better fishing equipment to increase your chances of catching bigger-sized fishes as personal achievements and also unlock maps (the base maps aren’t immediately accessible by the way except Betty Lake). I mean, that’s usually what it is about when it comes to fishing right? To see what’s your biggest catch of all time for a particular fish species!

For fishing enthusiasts, you will be happy to find X species of fishes in the game, and if that’s not enough, there are DLC add-ons you can buy to score some rare varieties. I’m still happy with the fish content I have as of now as I’m more of a casual gamer anyway, but I must say, the added fish species are quite a beauty…I may consider getting them once I manage to complete my basic fish collection. You can check and admire your fish collection in your Trophy Room (which I did countless times, hehe).

What We Love About Ultimate Fishing Simulator

I’m not a hardcore fan of simulation games to be honest (tried The Sims 4 way back but got bored real quickly), and fishing isn’t really my top choice for a game.

But I would say the Ultimate Fishing Simulator changed my perspective quite a bit – who would have thought a virtual fishing game could be this fun?

What I truly like about the game is how the devs put in the effort to make the game as believable and accurate as possible – the types of fishing techniques to catch the desired fishes (perhaps not the most accurate and you have to play by their set reeling rules but hey, it’s still commendable), how seemingly life-like when the fish at the end of your line struggles to break free from your rod, how the tension of your fishing line could affect the outcome of your catch, the weather that changes in between your fishing sessions – they are just so cool. Kudos, team Bit Golem!

You will be in great company with other fishers – you can even chat real-time on the left side of the screen.

When I first started, I thought it’s going to be a solo game but I’m secretly glad they open up the multiplayer option so you could actually play with friends. I went fishing alone though but I’ve chatted with some players in-game, and they were all nice peeps. Love the community’s friendliness when they ask and help one another to land bigger catches and whatnots – that gives you a warm, fuzzy feeling, especially when your virtual fishing environment matches the great vibes, so much zen here ahah.

Despite the initial skepticism that it might get boring, I found myself coming back to the game for a moment of calming music and view, just plain fishing with other players around and vying for the next huge catch – this game is a positive YES for me.

Editor’s Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
