Any alternative fishing game would be a superior choice
16 November 2009
Excerpt: This was the first fishing sim game I caught wind of for the Wii. Being an avid fisherman for many years I jumped at the chance and purchased a copy immediately. This was a mistake. From the start it is apparent that this is a game that has had very little thought put into it. The menu's are poor, the gameplay is very limited and the choice of lures leaves a great deal to be desired.
Excerpt: I got this game a couple of weeks ago and to be honest i haven't really got into it yet. I have played this game with the normal controller but i am thinking of getting the fishing rod to see if it makes it a bit easier to use. Casting takes a bit of getting used to and when the lure is in the water how you retrieve it takes some getting used to as well. Personally i don't think this is a game for a really young child maybe from seven years upwards.
Conclusion: I loved Sega Bass Fishing on the dreamcast. I pestered my friend to lend me this for a couple of weeks before I bought it and I'm so glad I only lent it. I really wanted to like this game so I tried and tried but it just doesn't even come close to Sega Bass. To me it just comes across as I really poor rip off. I can honestly say, while I was playing it I think all emotions left me body... I felt dead... Maybe just dead bored I guess.
