In a market dominated by Dovetail Games and their brilliant Euro Fishing and Fishing Sim World, you’ve got to have something to be able to deliver a game sold as the Ultimate Fishing Simulator. But after success over on PC that is exactly what Bit Golem, Console Labs, Ultimate Games. and PlayWay are attempting with the latest fishing game to arrive on Xbox One. But is it really as the name implies?
Available to purchase and download on Xbox One this very instant, Ultimate Fishing Simulator promises to be the most comprehensive fishing simulator yet, allowing you to get to grips with a whole host of angling techniques, before spending time honing them around the world, waiting for a bite to take hold.
Priced at £24.99, Ultimate Fishing Simulator on Xbox One doesn’t just arrive in base game format though, and Ultimate Games are pushing out no less than three DLC pieces for good measure – Moraine Lake, Kariba Dam and Greenland. Further to that, additional expansions have been promised for the future. We’ll be sure to let you know once they arrive.
So what do we have with Ultimate Fishing Simulator on Xbox One? Well, you’ll be able to go ice fishing should that be your preferred call, or perhaps you’d prefer to go sea fishing instead. There are no less than 10 locations to fish at in fact, letting you utilise spinning , float, ground and fly fishing abilities should you so wish. Ultimate Fishing Simulator hasn’t just become one of the top-rated fishing games by delivering that though, and it is the fish which are the star here and with dozens of types available, you’re not going to find yourself short of action; it’s helped by a dynamic weather system, multiple boat types and photorealistic water too.
“The premiere on Xbox One is the console debut of the Ultimate Fishing Simulator brand. The conversion takes into account the specific nature of Microsoft’s console, but it is the most faithful port possible. Many fisheries, various species of fish, very diverse fishing techniques, dynamic weather changes, a skill development system or a view from the perspective of the lure – these are only some of the game’s features. Naturally, the simulator is being developed mainly with lovers of virtual fishing in mind, but we have also prepared an additional mode that allows those who have no idea about catching fish to enjoy the game. What’s important, upon purchase, the Xbox One owners will receive not only the base game, but also three DLCs” – said Rafał Jelonek, COO at Ultimate Games S.A.
Throw in multiple difficulty levels, both a Normal and Realistic mode, and fun little additions like a new view that shows the action from that of the lure, and there is – on the face of it – plenty to love about the launch of Ultimate Fishing Simulator. It’ll only be by checking out our full upcoming review of the game on Xbox One will the proof be found. It’ll also be then when we discover whether or not this is a viable alternative to the best fishing games available on Xbox One.
If you can’t wait for that, and are already sold on a purchase, get over to the Xbox Store and grab your download of Ultimate Fishing Simulator. You should also soon be able to find it in a little bundle with other Ultimate Games’ other titles too – Car Mechanic Simulator and Thief Simulator.
Ultimate Fishing Simulator is a comprehensive fishing simulator which allows using various techniques, in different places around the world and most importantly, you don’t need a permanent connection to the Internet for it. If you are bored of waiting for fish to take and falling asleep in front of the computer, this means that you have played a bad game! In the Ultimate Fishing Simulator, this will never happen. Select the appropriate equipment and bait, cast your line and wait for a bite. Success is guaranteed. In addition to traditional fishing techniques, in Ultimate Fishing Simulator you’ll also find a winter map where you will be able to go ice fishing! Buy an auger at the store, find a suitable location and drill an air hole. But not too small, so that you can remove the fish. There are two modes of difficulties in the Ultimate Fishing Simulator, thanks to which there is something for everyone. Normal Mode allows you to enjoy the game in all its glory. In normal mode, all the features in the game are included. Realistic Mode requires more patience and efficiency from the player. Fish will be biting less and will fight longer. Some of the game features in this mode are disabled, such as the underwater camera. Every fisherman likes to admire his trophies. Some release their fish, other stuff and hang them on their walls. In Ultimate Fishing Simulator you can exactly do the same! Decide what you want to do with the fish you catch. Sell? Release? Stuff? The choice is yours.
