(Review of Dreamcast version)

Sega Bass Fishing is not the greatest game in the world, but it deserves an "A" because it's the first fishing game to get us excited. It was the first time we got to play with a rod, too. A nice, white rod. I enjoyed pulling the rod back and letting it go. It really works those arm muscles.

Seriously, the rod adds a lot to the experience. Sold separately from Sega, the rod actually vibrates when fish are on the line.

The game itself offers four complete tournaments in which you compete against other players by selecting a casting point, choosing from 13 different lures, and knowing how to take advantage of weather conditions, time of day, and terrain. For example, big fish are often found in caves.

The excellent graphics, sound effects, and amazing water texture and reflections are all part of a great interactive experience. My only complaint is that you can't fish away from the shore. You can't drive your boat deep into the lake and fish away from land.

I had the most fun in Practice mode, which is exclusive to the Dreamcast version. Sega Bass Fishing has been a success in the arcades for a while now. The Dreamcast version only builds on that success.
