What it really comes down to is that Action Bass has enough fishing action to merit the $9.99 price tag.
All Game Guide
The actual fishing part of Action Bass can be very enjoyable, albeit difficult since the time limit places constraints on advancing to the next area. Overall, this title is like an Arcade fishing game -- fun to play, but you won't think too much.
When compared to the other fishing titles available on the market for the PlayStation, Action Bass might not be the most heart-pounding or in-depth out there, but for the cheap price of $10, fishing fans are urged to give it a shot, at the least.
In the end, Action Bass is a solid arcade-style fishing game that the majority of armchair anglers will enjoy. However, for fishing game fans that really enjoy simulation-style fishing games with all of the extras like boats and vast areas to explore, the game will undoubtedly fail to please.
If you're looking for a quick fishing fix that offers a lot of action-oriented fun, you can't really go wrong with Take 2's Action Bass. It's only $9.99 and it's definitely worth that price. Just don't expect an extremely deep fishing experience and you'll be fine with this title.
I wanted so much more from this initially promising arcade-style diversion from the norm. Unfortunately it wasn't to be.
