Here's the deal. Put away those cumbersome waders, retire the tackle box, leave those maggots in the tub, and let Sega Bass Fishing put you in a virtual motor boat and take you out onto the peaceful waters.
Select an angler, male or female (very PC) and cast away with your choice of lure. Pretty soon you will find yourself battling with the big-mouthed bass.
As soon as your fishing line descends into the deep, you will instantly see all the sub-aquatic action taking up a portion of the screen. For a while, it may seem as if nothing is going to happen. Just like a real fishing experience, to be truthful. However, as you tug away at your chosen lure, the bass will start to get busy, and before you know it, the immortal phrase 'FISH!' will appear on screen, and the fight is on.
Help is at hand when you're trying to land one of these medium-sized monsters in the shape of on-screen and aural instructions, so pay attention, otherwise you may find yourself boring other folks senseless with the tale of the one that got away. Take note of the advice given and you should be able to avoid the frustration of a broken line or some other mishap.
