IGN: Deadliest Catch: Alaskan Storm Review

The game has depth, and that counts for something, but it will have absolutely no appeal to people who aren't fans of the show or the genre. And even those who find the game fun for a while will be hard-pressed to find it fun season after season. Unless you're a super fan of the show, or this kind of simulation appeals to you greatly, IGN recommends renting before you buy.

Well, it COULD have been the sleeper hit of 2009. Not really.

This game was going to be a steaming pile of crap before they ever typed a single line of code.

Just 'cause I'm from AK doesn't make this game my fault.
