Excerpt: Hunting and fishing take a lot of patience. so I was interested in how Sega Bass Fishing weighs in. Sega included a variety of play modes to fit the different person. There is an Arcade mode where speed is rewarded, then a Tournament mode that lets the fisherman forget about the clock. A Practice mode is included so you can get better at using the Wii Remote to catch fish.
Conclusion: Aside from more natural controls offered by the Wii Remote and Nunchuk and one new gameplay mode, SEGA Bass Fishing’s Wii debut doesn’t tread any new waters. But on a motion control-based console lacking any significant fishing title to exploit its strengths, an old hardened favorite is exactly what the chef ordered.
Pros: Nunchuk and Remote mapped perfectly, Old school gameplay still works today
Conclusion: Controls aside, Sega Bass Fishing feels more like a re-releasethan a new title. With a few new features, this title was a safe port over tothe next generation console. Sega has a lot of room to grow its Bass Fishinglicense on the Nintendo Wii. While I enjoyed playing this game, it still feltlacking. I am anxious to see what they do with it over the next few years.
Summary: I’ll admit I used to be a fan of " SEGA Bass Fishing " on the Dreamcast when it was pretty unique at the time however the main attraction was always the control method. Whilst the Wii does represent the fishing controls pretty well they are a mixed bag to say the least particularly if a combination of Wiimote and nunchuck are not used together.
