This used to be a half way decent game, but after the update it has turned into a complete money grab. You can see this when you leave the area where you were fishing and it tells you that if you had premium, you could get a lot more in game currency for the fish you caught then you would if you dont have premium. Another place where this crap is shown is how the game makes you pay even more in game currency to be able to keep (and in turn exchange for credits) fish that make the fishing worth while. P2W. I really hate to post this review, as I greatly enjoyed the short time I had with this game. I came back afer not playing for about a month only to find prices in game jacked up to the point it simply isn't worth playing.
I have seen many reviews commented on by the developers about how money needs to be put on the table, and that you can't expect it to be truly free to play without some sacrifice. I myself put food on my table by writing software, and take it from me, people that write software in this manner do not mean well. They think that you are a sucker, and if you continue to give money as they reduce functionality, then you are what they think you are and you deserve what you get.
The only way to change the outcome is to uninstall. Without a decent player count, the money supply is cut off. They have two choices at that point: cut bait and move on to another cash grab, or restore gameplay to a decent state.
I will gladly change this to a positive review if the devs come to their senses, but I doubt it will happen. Devs rarely change tact if they have a cash grab on their hands. Hard to change your spots once they have been seen.
Oh well, it was fun while it lasted. You guys actually do have decent chops at making a solid fishing game. Shame you squandered it.. Love the game, I've only fished a few times, but this feels pretty similar.
The only thing is there is a lack of sound effects. There's ambience and stuff, but not a lot of rod noises, or splashing water when you catch a fish.
People always talk crap about fishing games, but they're nice when you wanna relax.. Fishing planet is a realistic sport fishing simulator that places players on the muddy shores of locations scattered across America. Cast your line into gentle waters and reel in a variety of fish, using patience and practical knowledge to successfully bag them. A huge assortment of gear is available to purchase; customize your loadout to catch particular fish, using the right rods, bait, and line to make the catch. Earn experience from every fishing trip and level up, unlocking new areas of the map, and earning money to purchase more equipment. Catch trophy-sized fish and rise to the top of the leaderboards, showing off your dedication and perseverance.
Fishing Planet has amazing graphics. It is still in the 'Early Access' stage on Steam but has a ton of potential to be the best fishing game ever made. It needs better documentation and fine-tuning of game controls, physics, etc. But even though it's not finished yet, it's fun to play. It's free to play, with lots of extras available for optional purchase. No forced underwater views, plenty of real-life fishing spots, a ton of tackle\/baits, and a wide variety of fish provide lots of replay value.

Try it out as its free to play on steam.. Unplayable due to microtransactions and DLC's. Put the game on sale as a whole with a worthy price and modernize the graphics then it will be great.. I don't review games. I don't really think anyone cares what i have to say about them. But i can't hold my tongue on this one anymore.
I used to really enjoy this one, in fact it was my go to game, until they "rebalanced" the game a couple of months ago. I could log on, kill a few hours, have fun chatting with folks and catching fish.
Since the rebalance, it is nothing more than a grind game. And a slow one at that.
Heres what I used to like: The game worked. rod and line physics were reasonable, i could catch enough fish to make a few in game credits and didnt have to micromanage.
All of that is broken now. the fishing line is like rubber. the rods are like slinkys. The fish don't bite enough to keep things entertaining. Costs are so high that i can't see how a new player would get anywhere. Heck I'm having trouble making the new economy work at level 38. And the social aspect is ruined as well. They added stupid 3D avatars that basically fill up every fishing spot and ditract from the experience. I can't turn them off, so I fish alone to keep from having <insert name here>'s arms and rod in my line of sight.
The devs have claimed that they fixed some of the issues by lowering travel costs at certain places and tweaking the physics. I don't see any improvement.
The way i see it, its a game. It should be entertaining, and this just isn't anymore. If i want to catch only six or eight fish a day, I'll wait for spring and walk down to my dock and do it in a couple hours.
I would have recommended this game 4 months ago, now I just can't. If you want to fish, go to a real lake.. I put just about a 100 hours into this game, life got complicated for me so I stepped away from it for a few months. Come back to find ridiculous pay to play schemes. When I was playing intensely I set myself the goal of buying unlimited licenses for all the areas using ingame cash from catching fish which was very grindy but totally possible to do, now its baitcoins or whatever they call it to get unlimited. It had a well balanced economy, now I look at prices and my mouth falls open.
The durabilty and pay to repair items is ridiculous, in the real world I have fishing rods from my great grandfather that still work beautifully with out having to "repair" them after fishing for a day, so I see no practical gaming reason for this mechanic. Sure I snapped a rod once in the 25 years ive been fishing, ten minutes later with some bamboo splints and string I was back to fishing. Yes I should get a new tackle bag, the one that was given to me as a kid is pretty worn out, But I think it will last me another year or two.
This was a great game once upon a time, a bit grindy a bit buggy but overall I was astounded at the promise it showed and laughed at other lesser fishing simulators. I bought some real money dlcs to support what I thought would be the greatest fishing game of the decade. Now? Nope, im too old to fall into this money trap. Perhaps one day it wont be like it is now and I sincerly hope so. Until then, farewell.. Money grabbing thieves and anyone else who says otherwise is blind. This game used to be good. but now it's just \u2665\u2665\u2665\u2665ing\u2665\u2665\u2665\u2665\u2665\u2665 500$ to stay in a cabin a day? what is it a 5 star hotel give me a \u2665\u2665\u2665\u2665ing break. 8000 dollars to stay in a different state for a few days. wtf this game is so \u2665\u2665\u2665\u2665ed. what are these devs playing at? do they plan to abandon us after taking the money? so tired of devs like these making games with potential and then just completely trashing it.
