Wish I Didn’t Buy Whisker Waters Even When It Is On Sale. What a Horrid Game Even For Cat Loving Gamer Girls Like Me.

Whisker Waters for the Nintendo Switch had a lot of potential as a cute, engaging life simulation game centered around cats and fishing. Unfortunately, it falls short in several critical areas.

Despite its promise of unique fishing mechanics and a charming world populated by cats, bears, and birds, the game is plagued by numerous technical issues and design flaws. The controls are notoriously clunky, making the gameplay experience frustrating. The character customization is extremely limited—you can’t make your character look like your cats (at least I couldn’t come close to my two pretty average domestic shorthair tabbies), choose a gender, or even name your character, which detracts from the personalization aspect that many players, including myself, value highly in life simulation games.

The fishing mechanics, while central to the game, are overly simplistic and quickly become dull. This is a major letdown considering that fishing is supposed to be the standout feature of Whisker Waters. The graphics are subpar, with a lack of detail and polish that you would expect from a modern game, and the voice acting in the intro does little to enhance the experience. Moreover, the game suffers from performance issues, such as stuttering music, poor gameplay, glitches like walking through walls or objects, and overall sluggishness, which is baffling given the low quality of the graphics.

While the idea behind Whisker Waters is cute and has the potential to be engaging, the execution leaves much to be desired. I was excited about the prospect of a relaxing, cat-themed fishing RPG, but the disappointing controls, lack of customization, and technical problems made it hard to enjoy. After just thirty minutes of play, I turned it off and don’t see myself returning to it anytime soon. It’s truly disappointing that the game didn’t live up to the hype.

If you’re considering Whisker Waters because you love cats and life simulation games, you might want to hold off or look for other options that deliver a more polished and enjoyable experience.
