Die Grafik bewegt sich auf einem sehr hohen Level. Der Sound fällt, obwohl nicht herrausragend, auch nicht unangenehm auf!. Obwohl Angelsimulationen hierzulande nicht gerade reißenden Absatz finden (in Japan ist das ganz anders), sollte jeder, der etwas für ungewöhnliche Spiele übrig hat, auf alle Fälle zumindest einmal einen Blick darauf zu werfen. Uns in der Redaktion hat‘s auf alle Fälle begeistert!

Get Bass illustrates why Sega is the best software developer. Leave it to Sega to create the first fishing game that I can't put down. It's the Model 3 arcade wonder plus more modes and locales. Simple, yet addictive gameplay matched with excellent graphics and sound effects produce another Dreamcast winner!

Bass Fishing puts arcade action back into the sport (like it was ever there to begin with, right?) There's no complicated setup here; just pick your bait, cast, and hook some fish! This is my kind of fishing game! You'll have to pay extra for the Sega fishing controller, but it's well worth it.

There is much fun one can have playing several rounds of Sega Bass Fishing. This is arcade fun the way it was designed to be. Most certainly it is a game that many a "new" gamer could cut their teeth on,. Moreover, it is one that can appeal to almost anyone. Besides where else can you catch huge Bass like these without awaking at 2:00AM and having to eat cold wet sandwiches for lunch?

Had it not been for the quick port from arcades this game would have been one of my all-time favorites. As it is, it is extremely playable and very fun. I'm hoping that with the release of the reel controller (it seems to be doing well) other companies will try to capitalize on the peripheral. Perhaps by next year this time we will be treated to a Bass Fishing 2, or a third party's attempt at the fishing genre. After all, this genre has existed in console gaming since Activision's attempt for the Atari 2600. It has come a long way since then and shows no signs of slowing down. Let's pray now that we have the reel that a true fishing sim comes our way soon. If so I'll surely be the first one to reel it in.

Sega Bass Fishing is a title which is a great arcade conversion with some nice additions for the home. It's games like this that make the Dreamcast such a unique and fun system to own.

(PAL version)
Seit ich mir für den Import-Test der japanischen Version privat Get Bass besorgt habe, spiele ich dieses Game eigentlich ein- bis zweimal die Woche. Für den PAL-Test wollte ich eigentlich nur ein paar Screenshots machen und die ganze Sache schnell hinter mich bringen. Naja - anyway - es wurden wieder mehrere Stunden daraus.
It's dead easy to get into and simple to catch bigger fish, too. It's brilliant fun but the game isn't huge and you won't spend days playing it. There aren't a great variety of locations and there's only one kind of fish to catch Still, it's just the break you need from more intense games.
Retro Game Reviews (Mar 01, 2017)
Sega Bass Fishing is an impressive title and strikes a great balance of being simulation-like, while challenging players against the clock in an Arcade-style fashion. The fact that newcomers and experts can find something to love is a testiment to the developers, and the ability to use the awesome Fishing Rod makes this a must-own.

Sega actually makes fishing fun, and turns it into an especially good time when experienced with the innovative fishing controller! Check this out, fishing fan or not!
Mega Fun (Sep, 1999)
Nicht nur Angelsport-Freunden ist Get Bass absolut ans Herz zu legen. Noch keine Simulation dieser Sportart fing das Geschehen so authentisch ein wie Segas Titel. Es macht ungeheuren Spaß, sein Geschick Runde um Runde zu verbessern. Die verschiedenen Seen und deren Innenleben weisen zudem deutliche Unterschiede zueinander auf und sorgen somit für genügend Abwechslung. Die nötige Langzeitmotivation entsteht durch den Turnier-Modus, dank dem der Spieler immer wieder neue Köder erhascht. Der größte Pluspunkt des Spiels, der geniale Fishing-Controller, der sogar auf Handbewegungen des Spielers reagiert, macht gleichzeitig den größten Schwachpunkt von Get Bass aus. Leider reißt das Prachtstück durch die mitgelieferte virtuelle Angelrute ein rund 190 DM großes Loch in eure Geldbörse. Wahrscheinlich zu viel für einen Genre-Einsteige, schade.
Planet Dreamcast (Oct 09, 1999)
Surprisingly enough, Sega Bass Fishing is a fun game and worth a look to all but the most extreme fishing hater. The only question is whether to spring for the fishing controller. Hmmm…

Sega Bass Fishing brings fishing to a whole new audience and you don't even have to enjoy the real thing to enjoy the pleasures of this fantastic simulation.
Defunct Games (Apr 22, 2006)
If you're looking for a good fishing game then look no further than Sega Bass Fishing it does just about everything you could want from the genre. Gamers expecting more might be a little disappointed, but if you're the type of person that wishes he could fish 24 hours a day this game was made for you.

If you are looking for a fun party type game, I suggest picking up a fishing controller along with this game. You will have some good, quick fun. If you are looking for a deep, long lasting fishing experience, you will be disappointed. I do suggest at least a rental just to see the cool graphics and the fish alone are worth the five dollar rental fee. Just don't expect any long fights, that is for sure.
GameSpot (Apr 23, 1999)
As an all-around title for the everyman who might own a Dreamcast, Sega Bass Fishing is a non-threatening, lightly challenging little game that should keep fishing fans more than happy with its placid, lakeside offerings. For the hard-core gamer this is nothing more than a rental, but if you jones for the great outdoors on a more than regular basis, this may be the gumdrop for your sweet tooth.
Tyvärr räcker det dock inte för att ge Sega Bass Fishing tillräcklig livslängd. I synnerhet inte om man har kostat på sig den utmärkta specialhandkontrollen. Man vill helt enkelt ha mer innehåll. Mycket mer. Och idéerna hoppar upp medan man sitter där och vevar. Fler fisksorter behövs givetvis först och främst. Det hade gjort det hela betydligt mer intressant om man till exempel fick poäng beroende på art och variationen hade kunnat blivit betydligt större om man hade kunnat få upp allt från lax till ål. Och varför inte lite mer varierande väderleksförhållanden? Och djuphavsfiske efter de riktigt stora bytena. Och flugfiske. Och... men snyggt är det i alla fall.
Gamekult (Dec 05, 2000)
Sega Bass Fishing est un jeu de pêche sportive à vocation "Arcade" qui ne propose pas énormément de possibilités. La vue sous-marine est la seule possible, et le manque de faune et de variété rendent ce titre vite lassant et sans grand intérêt. Il est cependant assez amusant de sortir des monstres de 10 kilos et le jeu devient vraiment divertissant avec l'utilisation de la canne à pêche Dreamcast. Un investissement est donc à prévoir, mais seul Sega Bass Fishing ne suffit pas à dépenser une telle somme. Ceux qui possèdent déjà l'ustensile seront donc ravis, alors que les autres ne pourront qu'être déçus.
