Summary: This game was pretty nice, but its difficult to understand how to actually "reel in" the fish without the line breaking. You can't understand the instructions provided. And, there is no 2-player head to head mode, like I really wanted in a game.
Summary: No one really plays it. From what I have seen, it looked pretty cool. It is not Bass Master (which was my favorite game) on Nintendo 64. It is a bit difficult to get the boat to move and reeling the line in gets annoying. Poor control for under water viewing. Like I said, it is not Bass Master. It is a so-so game.
Summary: bit of a one-trick pony this game, to be honest. fair enough, it does what is says on the tin (choose bait, flick remote to cast, wind in bait, press A + B to land fish. repeat) but i was expecting a bit more. there's not enough made of the competition element (i found it a bit constricting that you cast and the line ends up in a pre-set point. there's a red circle where the line will land.
Excerpt: 1999 was a great year for me. I gained my full motorcycle licence, I was driving around in a Mk2 Fiesta XR2 (the car I had wanted before I could even drive), I left college and Sega Bass fishing was released on the Sega Dreamcast. In fact, it was Sega Bass fishing that finally swayed me to part with some serious cash and finally decide to buy the Dreamcast and the obligatory plastic rod controller to play it with.
Pros: Still the best fishing simulator available
Cons: Not that different from the original released back in 1999, can't get the "big" one
Summary: We bought this game for my boy aged 7 and it has become a firm favorate however i think adults will find the fun factor soon subsides .All in all we found it quite enjoyable and all the family have been fishing and when you catch a big fish it does get quite exciting .
Excerpt: This is one of the better fishing games on the Wii - one of the more exciting ones I found! For such a low price, you can't really go wrong. The game has an arcade mode that is fast paced and you have to catch as many fish as possible, tournament mode, practice and nature trip mode where your free to take your time. If you ever played this on the dreamcast, its almost identical. The graphics are very good and the different environments are enticing.
Pros: Pick up and play, good graphics, one of the better fishing games ou there
Cons: after long periods of time it becomes a little "samey"
Excerpt: I just cannot get over how badly this game has aged, and how little effort seems to have been put in to this port. There's load times of considerable length between different menu screens, the announcer still has only a few repeatitive lines of voiceover, and I'm not sure who thought a rotating wheel of letters was a good idea for name entry, especially when you're using a controller that has a ruddy pointer on it.
