It follows the exploits of crab fishermen in the waters off of Alaska. The job is called the most dangerous job in the world, according to the producers, because the death toll is a significant risk factor in taking on this job in the treacherous 40 foot waves, high winds, and subzero temperatures of the Bering Sea.
So I was really looking forward to the video game when it was first announced back in February. The game, Deadliest Catch: Alaskan Story is a nice simulation of what it feels like to be a captain of a crab boat. You'll have to set your course on the radar, approximate how many crab traps, called "pots," to lay down, where the best locations to fish for crab are, hire your crew, pick up the pots and attend to a host of other duties to make for a successful crab season."
