Game is not that bad, but the analog controls using the right thumbstick on the XBOX 360 Controller seem a bit odd when trying to simulate the feel of turning the crank on the fishing line to reel in the fish . Has the tournament mode from the original Dreamcast Edition. This version of the game don't have any of the graphical glitches like the original SEGA PC release did back in the day. Kind of short and lacking in content but its still not that bad.

Still prefer Fishermans Bait on PS1 if you have the console and have access to the game :)

This is an honest port of the Dreamcast game. It's a simple and fun game, but it can get boring really fast. I recommend getting this game if you're nostalgic for it or if its discounted, and make sure you play with a gamepad.

It's an anomaly these days for a game to reel in such an emotional response in the player only to pull a bait-and-switch when you least expect it. I was kept at the edge of my boat seat from the moment the SEGA logo lured me in, I was ready. My heart was on the line along with the monster bass that swallowed my jig whole as he failed under the dock as guitars seemingly from heaven itself pounded away as did the giant fish.

I turned rod left
IT'S COMING NEAR
I turned rod right
COME ON ALMOST THERE

In a brief moment of glory the monsterous bass was lifted on to my boat, seemingly putting it on the edge of capsizing.

THIS ONE'S HUUUUUUUGE!

I ranked in my tears and felt the bonus of time rush over me.
Thank you Sega, thank you.

Games like this are what make SEGA arcade KINGS!

Take a niche concept to begin with (fishing), narrow it down to a ridiculous level (Bass only) and then polish every bit of gameplay, sound and presentation until it shines like a new ferrari and is more addictive than crack.

For people who enjoy fishing in real life, this game is pure bliss. And even if you're not into fishing but still love other arcade classics from the turn of the century, this one stands proud among them.

Granted, I got troll gifted and being openminded about it, I installed it. I don't know what I was expecting? Sitting in a boat, birds chirping, nature everywhere, just you doing some mother ♥♥♥♥ing fishing. Apparently, that's too ♥♥♥♥ing hard to code so you get some incredibly annoying music more fit for a 80's porn movie thats trying to reinvent the genre with good writing, controls that make no sense whatsoever, there's even a god damn announcer or some sort! And you know what the worst part is? Its a console port. A bad one. Also, 1994 wants its graphics back.

Calling it shovelware would be an insult to the ♥♥♥♥ing shovel.

For all the good write ups on this game, I found it to be impossible to control. The graphics are good for 1997, but not for todays GPUs. Don't waste your time or money.

HEY LIKE CATCHING BIG ♥♥♥♥ING FISH WELL THIS GAMES FOR YOU
Just a relaxing day out on the lake. Pop on a spinner why not. Cast out *crosses fingers* "Hope i get a big one!". See some bass floating around yeah yeah normal stuff. THEN OUT OF LEFT ♥♥♥♥ING FEILD A BIG ♥♥♥ ♥♥♥♥ED OFF SAURLCHTHYS DECIDES "IM TAKING YOU FOR A RIDE". This is where i think the game is lacking a little you only get like four different kinds of artilery and the harpoons are ♥♥♥♥. The enemy AI is ridiculously smart for a game this old they do not take it easy on you. Your brother Lugi will pop in every once in a blue moon to help fight back the aliens. And there you have it a 3lb bass yours for the taking. So then you just repeat the process. Pick lure maybe a deep water this time, cast, preheat oven to 325, load cannons and save the princess.
