Summary: this game is pretty damn detailed in many ways to me it seems very simular to championship bass for the ps1 in the way that you can drive a boat the electric motor the kinds of conditions you can choose tournament conditions there catfish just like championship bass! even the selection of lures is close anyway this game is great though one thing it dosent have in common is its much harder to entice the bass to bite (and thats that its pretty hard to entice bass on...
Summary: The game is really not worth buying Time goes to quick in tournament mode. The size of the fish is really blown up. Also the fish are to easy to catch. Game could be okay for a beginer who just wants to fish and have fun. If you want a good game pick up Bass Landing for the PS1 it comes with it's own fishing reel controller. Bass Landing is an amazing game that is very real and fun to play.
Whoever made this game has obviously never caught a Bass!!!

Summary: Don't buy this game unless you enjoy swearing at the tv and throwing your controller around the room! I am a frequent Bass fisherman, and have caught 14 Largemouth Bass in the last month. This game is great... untill you have to reel your fish in, then your 2 to 8 pound Bass turns into a 100 pound Marlin.This is horribly incorrect, I've never fought a Bass for more than 30 seconds, and most are reeled in in just a matter of a few.
Summary: Bass Strike is a great game. The graphics are fine, the fishing is great, and it is very realistic. Some people might say, "It takes too long to get the fish in the boat!" Come on!!! It might take a little while but your efforts are worth the wait, and if they knew how to bring in the bass properly it wouldn't take very long! Besides, the best part is the struggle. Others say it's too hard to catch a fish. That's life!!!
Summary: If I wanted a completely realistic fishing experience, I'd go out fishing. I had owned Sega Bass Fishing for the Dreamcast and that game was loads of fun. You'd throw your lure in, wiggle it around and you'd get a strike. This game gets boring very quickly. It takes forever to reel a fish in. I really don't have much else to say other than that this game is not much fun, so don't waste your time on it.
Summary: ... EA Sports Championship Bass is a much better game. I understand that fish don't just jump out of the water and land in your boat, but you should be able to catch SOME fish under optimal conditions. The Tournament mode is kinda lacking, the computer wins more often than it loses and it gets frustrating. It doesn't really inspire you to unlock more anglers.
