GameArgus Review: Deadliest Catch: Alaskan Storm

GameArgus writes: "At one point, gamers were graced with Bomberman: Act Zero. The game quickly fell through the ranks and became graced with the dubious title of "worst game on the Xbox 360" Then, Midway challenged that title with the truly awful Hour of Victory.

It's hard to imagine what was going through the minds of the suits at the Discovery Channel. Their hit TV series follows crab fishers in one of the more dangerous jobs on the planet. It's engaging TV, but to turn this into anything remotely resembling an exciting video game is all but impossible.

Taking almost all of the thrilling aspects that are featured in the show and tossing them to the wayside, Alaskan Storm becomes a strategy title.
