    The greatest thing about Bass Strike is the Sony PS2 game controller. Yes, it's the same as it ever was, but -- finally -- the right analog stick serves as a near perfect dupe for a fishing rod's reel.
  2. This is a curiously addictive game, and with the various modes offered, you'll be busy hauling bass and making a name for yourself in no time. Just don't forget to grow out those sideburns.
  3. Game Informer
    Catching fish is less fun than in "Sega Bass Fishing 2," even though managing the drag settings on your reel can be demanding. [Nov 2001, p.112]
  4. The clipping is absolutely horrible, particularly with the fish.
  5. An above average fishing game. Virtual Anglers will find plenty to like here.
  6. Bass Strike’s main ailment seems to be its rather delicate control system...Sensitive? It’s like a freshly exposed groin wound; you move too quickly and the fish is off, you wind in too slowly and the – fish – is – off.
  7. Official U.S. Playstation Magazine
    The graphics certainly don't help any. Really, for a PS2 game, they're an embarrassment. [Dec 2001, p.161]

    Very good game controls a little tricky but after you get used to them it is really pretty fun.

    I've been playing for half an hour and still can't figure out how to catch a fish, i always loose the hook. Dang, maddening.

    Can NOT figure out how to set the hook! Game is nothing more than an aggravation! A disgrace.
