    If you're looking to build a fishing industry empire, this is not for you. On the other hand, if you find yourself daydreaming of making your living by farming the oceans, you might enjoy Fishing: Barents Sea. It offers a fairly easy learning curve and an almost completely stress-free playing style that allows you to play the game the way you want to.

    I really do not get too excited over tycoon style games, and this fishing simulator is a lot like a tycoon fishing game which is fine and well because it is presented surprisingly well. I love going out on the ship and hunting for a good fishing grounds.

    Fishing: Barents Sea has plenty of idle time, but also cool ideas - and is anything but a sea cucumber.

    An interesting niche game that requires patience for slow pace and some tolerance for bugs and simplifications. [04/2018, p.58]

    Fishing: Barents Sea is unfortunately somewhat boring. It manages to introduce an enjoyable progression system, where you get larger boats based on your actions, but the mechanics behind the fishing and tasks are nothing special.

    A somewhat cozy game that I sadly find it a bit to boring and buggy. I'm an amateur fisher from these parts. And I really miss the excitementA somewhat cozy game that I sadly find it a bit to boring and buggy. I'm an amateur fisher from these parts. And I really miss the excitement of fishing. What is that on the sounder? What fish am I pulling up now? How big is it? Why doesn’t anything bite? Where is the fish? Damn, I would love to have the sonar that "Bjørge" (The boat) has, that points out what fish is under the boat. Never seen that.
    The boat reacts somewhat realistic to the waves and the sea. But it looks like a texture above water. The boat has no interaction with the water. It does not cut through sea, creates no waves, and no froaming sea when you through it in reverse. I also really wish we could use more gear. Like fishing with Jigging while we are waiting for the line to catch fish. Sorry, I personally just find it boring. Even after 3 hrs. of play I cant see that the game can give me anything more. The beauty of the excellent graphic doesn’t cut it. All those gfx glitches does not help either.
