Is wrangling a record-breaking bass on the Wii worth the effort, or does this version sink to the bottom? Find out in this Sega Bass Fishing video review.


To quote the video review: “Sure, fishing can arguably be deemed “boring,” or “unfulfilling” by some folks, but then again, those who never played Sega’s long-time running arcade fishing franchise would say that. Thanks to the Wii’s versatile remote and nunchuk, the popular series receives a breath of fresh air after nearly eight years. But is wrangling a record-breaking bass on the Wii worth the effort, or does this version sink to the bottom?

Sega Bass Fishing does a lot of things right. It’s easy to pick up and play, yet tough to master, and it emulates the art of fishing quite well thanks to the Wii remote. Beginners will find the learning curve a little steep, but once you start to learn the ins and outs sitting next to a body of water and hooking slimy worms begins to lose its appeal. The lack of any sort of tutorial, the finicky reeling controls, and punishing tournament option hurt, but if you’re looking for a fishing simulation for your Wii this is the best bet this side of Hyrule.”
