If you have the patience for it, Sega has made a title that meets the high standards they set with the original version and taken it to another level. Digital fishing may not be your idea of a fun time, but give it a chance and you will be pleasantly surprised. The pacing of the game may have you dozing off at times, but with a little persistence you will find one of the most underrated games of 2001.

GameSpot (Aug 21, 2001)
In the end, Sega Bass Fishing 2 is a model example of what sequels should be. By taking an already great game mechanic and changing it ever so slightly, this sequel truly adds to the fishing experience--instead of just treading water. While it is almost saddening to know that a game this fun to play will be the final one for this system, it is comforting to know that this is the kind of game that you can pick up and casually play for years to come.

If you are looking for another reason to whip out that Dreamcast fishing rod peripheral, Sega Bass Fishing 2 is it. While it is unfortunate that there is no online play or tournament feature included, the game still provides plenty of depth and fun for the whole family.

As stated above, there's a good amount of features ranging from fishing the whole year round, as well as the ability to customize your fisherman. All in all, beyond the small visual flaws you might see, the game can get a bit tough; at one point, I had my line break three times in a row when reeling in a fish because the tension meter filled up right as I set the hook on my fish. Additionally, I wish you could start off with a better selection of baits, especially since you don't start with many that can sink. Finally, I'm a bit surprised not to see fishing weights in the game - with slightly more "sim" aspects of fishing, I would've thought SEGA would add the well-known technique of applying fishing weights to your line so you could drop the bait deeper into the water. But all in all, you're not going to find a better fishing game for every type of skill level than Sega Bass Fishing 2, as SEGA once again, knows how to reel in the big ones.

Sega Bass Fishing 2 is van alle markten thuis en het lijkt er op dat Sega opnieuw beet heeft met deze joekel van een visgame. Binnenhalen die hap!

Parece claro que Sega Bass Fishing 2 no es el juego que uno pondría en su lista de preferencias a la hora de configurar el "canto del cisne" ideal de una consola como Dreamcast, más por su concepto que por la calidad del mismo. De todos modos este título no deja de ser el mejor en su serie y de su género, además de una muy válida muestra de adaptación al mercado doméstico de un sistema de juego inicialmente arcade. No sería justo exigirle mucho más de lo que ya es, un buen título.

The game does have a few nice new features including a "free fishing" mode and the ability to set the month, time of day, and weather conditions. NOTE: I was rather disturbed by the excessive amount of noise this game made in my Dreamcast. The disk mechanism thrashed throughout the WHOLE GAME! Very annoying! Bottom line: There are better fishing games for the Dreamcast.
