Description: Ice Lakes is an ultimate ice fishing game with a sandbox approach to wintertime fishing. Rare subject, stunning graphics, realistic physics, fish behaviour system, a wide selection of fishing gear, single and multiplayer with different game modes in the various locations around the world, changing seasons, day time and weather conditions that also affect fish behaviour make Ice Lakes the ultimate ice fishing simulator. What makes this a unique fishing game are features like fish fights, VR support, fishing locations and species around the world, which no other ice fishing game has! The game can be played both with or without VR system.

Review: I think the biggest problem I have with this game is not so much about the game itself, more the lack of understanding about what it is trying to accomplish. It looks OK and there are enough multiplayer options to keep you playing this for some time (although, these days it is very quiet online). There also seems to be some depth to the game (other than the deepness of the holes you make) with many lures and types of fish to catch. But for me, it was far too boring, far too…slow. Like I said, maybe I am missing the point to the game, but I can only tell you what I think and I think this is one fishing game best avoided.
