You would think that the whole point of fishing is to get out in the countryside for some peace and quiet away from the daily grind of being cooped up hunched over a monitor, so isn't Matt Hayes Fishing kinda defeating the object of angling? Surprisingly, no, although the concept may sound strange, this is actually a well done and entertaining sim for seasoned anglers or people who have never picked up a rod in their lives. Graphically it is nice to look at, with the underwater scenes looking particularly nice. The interface is clean and easy to work out and the levels progress in difficulty so that the challenge increases. There are six different aquatic species to test your skills, including Pike, Perch, Zander, Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout, Chub and Salmon over six of the best European fishing venues, including Loch Lomond, Lough Derg, Grafham Reservoir and Gamlebyviken. There are also bonus fish in each level that if you land them enable you to rack up the points. Matt Hayes Fishing won't give you the extreme sports thrills of Tony Hawks or Mat Hoffman but as a competitive sports game it is well worth a look. --Tom Hammond
