EA has provided gamers with one of the most complete fishing sims yet. However in the end it fails to produce the most important factor that a game like Get Bass offers, which is of course fun. If you want a serious fishing game, though, you can't go wrong here.
Game Informer Magazine
EA's first venture into the world of bass fishin' does lack the real lakes and big name fishin' pros, but it more than makes up for this with great playcontrol and authentic hoggin' tactics.
This game has it all -- unbelievably smart fish, loads of modes and options, fun gameplay, solid graphics, and good music all piled on top of EA's polished presentation (the 3D title screen is a great touch). If you are looking for a fishing game in the sea of choices on the PSX, you can't go wrong with EA's offering. In my opinion, it's the best fishing game on the system.
Still, the gameplay features outweigh Championship Bass' flaws. Although it lacks enough bells and whistles to snag mainstream gamers who aren't into the sport, it packs enough excitement to warrant long-term commitment by fishing fans. If Electronic Arts had fixed the game's graphics glitches, fine-tuned its control responsiveness, and removed its awful country "twang" music, it would have jumped from merely decent to excellent in a heartbeat. Regardless of the flaws, only fishy folks like Cid will have reason to complain.
All Game Guide
In conclusion, Championship Bass is a great game for a group of people that love fishing. The slow pace and soft music might not appeal to a lot of gamers, but I think the game is specifically designed for those who like to fish. If you don't like fishing, this may be a great way to get you into the sport...providing you have enough patience.
