Can’t get on the bank? Now you can fish from the sofa instead…

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 sofa. Welcome to the Great Indoors!

First things first – Euro Fishing isn’t a throwaway fishing title that you may have picked up on your smartphone, all cute graphics, cartoon fish and rock music, with you waggling your phone around like an arthritic angler to cast your line. Oh no. This is a realistic fishing simulator – think farming sim, woodcutter simulator or – coincidentally – Train Simulator to name but three. Dovetail Games set out to create a realistic fishing experience, and to all intents and purposes that’s exactly what’s been accomplished.

Dovetail Games set out to create an interesting simulation of one of the world’s largest participation sports, and that box has certainly been ticked. This might not appeal to everyone but if you are after a different and more relaxing – buit still challenging and rewarding – gameplay experience, then Euro Fishing could be the plaice to be.

Now available on both Xbox One and PS4
