Fishing: Barents Sea is a really great, relaxing, immersive game. Traversing the sea in first person in a small commercial fishing boat with your music of choice is an incredibly relaxing escape from life. Freely explore an open world environment which recreates the stunning landscapes of northern Norway. Look for the best fishing zones with the help of your sonar, radar and GPS and catch yourself the biggest profit. Learn how to catch different kinds of fish with various fishing equipment on several different boats. Every method is easy to learn, but hard to master – time to show what you are made of! Visit the harbor pub to hire crew members or accept missions. At the port you are also able to repair or upgrade your ships, get a loan from the bank or buy supplies and bait at the shop. 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.
