Take the helm of your very own fishing boat in Fishing: Barents Sea and explore the vastness of the Norwegian sea in search for the best fishing zones. Start with the little boat inherited from your grandfather, catch fish and earn money for upgrades as well as bigger and better boats. Enjoy the beautiful Barents Sea and make your fishing industry dreams come true. Learn how to catch different kinds of fish with various fishing equipment on 12 different ships. Whether it's line or net fishing: Every method is easy to learn, but hard to master – time to show what you are made of! Use officially licensed Scanmar equipment like door sensors and the TrawlEye to have complete control over your trawl. Upgrade it to make sure you get the biggest catch! But be sure to stay under your yearly fishing quotas, every step and every fishing run needs to be planned. 20 years of weather data recreate a realistic environment for the schools of fish in the Barents Sea, which move according to season and water temperature. It's up to you to keep track of everything. Freely explore an open world environment which recreates the stunning landscapes of northern Norway. Look for the best fishing zones with the help of your sonar, radar and GPS and catch yourself the biggest profit. Visit the harbor pub to hire crew members or accept missions. At the port you are also able to repair or upgrade your ships, get a loan from the bank or buy supplies and bait at the shop.

Fishing: Barents Sea - Complete Edition Critic Reviews

If you're accustomed to the deliberately mundane nature of simulators, then Fishing: Barents Sea Complete Edition should be a familiar outing. It's not as hands-on as the typical fishing game, which makes it feel more automated and lifeless. Still, it does a relatively decent job at simulating the life of an industrial fisherman. It's rough around the edges, especially here on Switch, but it's by no means a bad game.

This is a slow-paced game, and my modest fish hauls suggest it will be a while before it picks up speed. Still, while I'm no simulation enthusiast (and perhaps never will be), I've had success insofar as I've been entertained. Fishing: Barents Sea Complete Edition is a good title, albeit one Nintendo Switch owners might want to grab at a discount sale price.
