Review by Tom Allen
2 Stars out of 4

The create a player mode has been getting far too much hype lately. I have to laugh when it pops up in a fishing game of all places. Nice touch, I guess, but who cares?

Let's get to the meat of the game, shall we? Bass catching (that sounds funny) in the tournament mode is a tough job. At least the camera doesn't get in our way, but that boat… it drives too slowly!

For goodness' sake, it takes forever to move to another part of the darn lake! This isn't a rowboat, for crying out loud! Are the waters of Lake Shasta polluted or something? That must be invisible cream!

I searched everywhere; I couldn't even find fish half the time. Bassmasters' bass are lazy, too, whereas Sega Bass Fishing has bass that would actually investigate your bait. You have to practically but the darn bait in their mouth to get them to bite.

Like all fishing games, I find the underwater camera angle to be too high. Some positive points are the selection of different rods, lures, and (limited) player clothes, hairstyles, and whatnot, as well as the slow, medium, and fast reel speeds, which dramatically affect your success rate. Oh, and you can fish with a friend in multi-player mode. Now you can truly be jealous of your pal's rod.
