Euro Fishing

Euro Fishing immerses you deep into the adrenaline-packed action, fun and beauty of Europe’s most famous lakes. Master your rod, line and tactics, and refine your technique to become a top angler. This is the closest you can get to real fishing from the comfort of your own couch. Welcome to the Great Indoors! Start by learning the basics of casting with in-game tutorials, or dive straight into one of the five unique European locations included, such as the famous St John’s Lake at Linear Fisheries and Digger Lakes, each posing their own unique challenge to land the big catch. Using advanced AI and customisable environment effects, fish respond to water temperature, time of day, weather conditions and baits as they do in real life. Spot fish ‘shows’ before casting into the right area from a pre-set peg or the lake bank, and customise your angling equipment for the best chance of landing a catch.

Ok, as a mature gamer and a UK course fisherman, i was intrigued the moment i saw this title. Mainly because it wasnt based on lure fishing for bass, which it seems 99% of fishing games are. The first thing that struck me on playing it was the beautifull training lake, it was a while before i even cast a rod out as i was strolling round the lake in awe of the lush scenery. I struggled a bit at first with the fishing mechanics, but soon got used to it, and with practice it became very natural and pretty dam realistic. Im so glad i stuck with it for a couple of hours and got to grips with the controls, because now after several updates and much practice i am enjoying this game more than ever and would highly recommend it to anyone.
The most impressive aspect of this project i feel, is the direction its heading in, although the updates arent super regular when the do hit they bring massive improvements and content. Phase 6 added a massive new lake, boss fish, landing net mechanics, a tackle shop and much more. All of the additions were well implemented and brought a lot more structure to the game. Unfortunatly i have now bought all the best tackle and saved up quite a bit of money for future tackle shop items. But the fact that its the first game i check everyday when im looking at whats been updated is testament to its genius. With the promise of Tench and float fishing equipment to come my mouth is watering!
There are still some bugs of course as it is early access, but the devs are active enough and seem to be working on them. There is also online multiplyer now which works but is still very much in Alpha.
I truly hope this gets the support and backing it deserves as it is, by far, the best fishing game ive ever played, already and theres still content to come. My advice to the devs on this one is please keep up the good work and keep heading in the direction your are... oh and hurry up with my Tench :P
Overall the good massively outweighs the bad and in my opinion is already a worthwile purchase.

EARLY ACCESS REVIEW BASED ON PHASE 4 RELEASE.
Dovetail Games Fishing is one of those games that come to mind as unique. Or maybe even niche. Because the people who actually do fish, will be outside doing actual fishing. It makes you wonder why to even make a simulation based on it? Well to be fair to DTG, they hit the nail on the head. The game is still Early Access, so a lot of features of the game are unavailable, but as they develop it, you can really see the game shine through the cracks of it's early builds.
The whole idea of fishing and just relaxing and enjoying doing something that doesn't require hard manual labour, is top notch. The game itself is based around a lake which you now, have complete control over. You can now walk and fish in different spots, you can now, change your lures, and you can even put your rod down!
The attention to detail is amazing as the whole atmosphere projects a warm sunny summers day morning and the ambient sounds of birds chirping away to the splashing of over excited fish is simply sublime.
To their advantage, is that the developers of the game at Dovetail, enjoy fishing and do it often. So the game is being made by fishers for fishers. I myself am not a fisher. But to play this game is to encapsulate what I do enjoy. A nice relaxing morning or afternoon in the middle of a green area.
I would recommend this game based on "Phase One", and this review is based on "Phase Four". As such, I'm still going to recommend it. Quality. Absolute quality!

Review from Steam

keeping in mind this is Early access I bought it full well knowing it's not a complete game
The game looks amazing in graphics department
There is not a lot to do just yet but it does give a look into what they are trying to produce, this game has a great future for an area in the market that is rather shallow and not a lot of fish biting, but if this game stays on track on full release it maybe a feeding frenzy.
If you are into fishing and want to watch a game grow into something great, cast a line and catch your self a deal on this record size catch :)
Will visit this again after there planned updates

Review from Steam

This is basically a first stage tutorial teaching you how to cast and land fish. The game needs lots of extra A.I. and lots of different scenarios. Otherwise it will run straight into that deadly trap called Boring! Also fishing isn't just about Carp, there are a lot of other species out there, all needing different approaches to catch them. By this I mean Float fishing, Fly fishing and Stalking to name but a few. The Graphics seem to be okay, but a bit on the basic side. I had everything maxed out and to be honest I didn't see any difference at all!
I think that to Charge People for the "Game" at the moment is a BIG mistake! Get more into it then you can sell it for peoples hard earned cash. To actually sell it at this stage of it's development is rather cheeky to say the least!
Finaly, I will recommend this game, but very reluctantly, as it has a lot of scope. Now it's back to the men and hope they fill the gaps and provide us with an interesting game that will keep us going for Day's!

**Early Access Review Stage 1 (11/4/14)**
Yea!
-Realistic fishing game on PC
-Looks Good
-Great intro price
Meh!
-Early Access/ early stage Alpha
-Only 1 type of fish
-Casting looks very promising
-Could give something of a stats for fish when caught
Bleh!
-Menu is very clunky only works with keyboard
-In game mouse sensitvity is awful
-Tutorals need to be unlocked
-Weird physics issues
***
Presentation-
Game looks great for the stage the game is in, but there are some clipping issues with the water. But the fish and your model look pretty good overall. The water and reflections also are quite nice.
The menu screen is barebone and only is navigated by keyboard. The options are barebone with only having settings for mouse sensitivity, audio levels, and Graphics detail (low,med,high,ultra), resolution with being able to select fullscreen, window or borderless window. Setting the game to fullscreen at 1440p would not display properly and only worked via windowed mode for me.
Mechanics-
Casting is decent once you get use to it, but suffers from mouse sensitivity issues where you have to turn it up a lot or you will be doing the picking up and dragging and repeat to start your backswing for casting. Sometimes even while releasing the line it will shoot forward then bounce back oddly. When the line is in the water it is pretty smooth sailing, and reeling in the fish is fun. I just wish upon landing the fish it would at least make up some numbers for you so you can keep trying for something other then landing another generic fish. Also be aware that the current plans is to only add in carp til a much later date.
***
Lowdown- As of this review the game is in very early alpha, but looks promising. With a great intro price of $7 ( which is said to increase as development continues), its a good time to buy to support pretty much the only modern realistic fishing game on steam or PC pretty much. This is only reason I recommend this game at this stage

Review from Steam

Huge improvements from early versions in every aspect of the game.
It's not perfect, but pretty close and in my opinion has retaken the title of best fishing game on steam.
Its still being developed and new content worked on so the future is bright for this game, deserves more of a player base.
Great immersion, you really do feel like your by the lake and once you get the hang of the casting and fighting mechanics its a lot of run reeling in the monsters.
I would like to see fish animations in the water worked on when you have a fish hooked but apart from that really enjoying this title.

Review from Steam

Been with the game since it first hit EA on Steam, after breaking 100 hours I thought I would share my thoughts.
As there are not a massive amount of fishing games on steam and even less which are 'serious-semi serious' this one stands out. Graphically pleasing and with its current state and latest update its easy to hope in and play with friends and on your own. You can get stuck in and learn easy enough through a simple tutorial process after that its up to your style of fishing. While there are not a massive variety of fish species to be caught (something to be improved on?) what there is there proves a challenge to catch and some of the larger specimens are a great fight, the addition of boss fish and extensive tackle choice to unlock keeps you playing for a long time and the community online are a good bunch, never had any problems there.
Had a lot of fun and hope it continues to be supported and more content gets added, for me a good 8/10.
