    Bassmaster Fishing 2022 is a glimpse into the pro bass fishing world. Slightly shonky implementation and other issues mar the experience a little bit but it's a solid fishing game otherwise. We can't stop playing despite that.

Being a long time bass fisherman, I’ve often found it hard to find a game that remotely comes close to the real experience. I must say though this game is the best fishing sim I’ve ever had the honor to play. Don’t get me wrong it’s got some kinks and needs some patches. There are some odd sound glitches and from time to time the so for the fish acts goofy. But all in all with a little work added the amaizing ground work dovetail games has laid this game will be a masterpiece!! Expand

The graphics are a bit dated by today's standards and a more would have been appreciated to really get us feeling like we're out there. Overall, it feels like a Beta. Gear doesn't matter. All rods, reels and line past the starter seems to feel the same. Vertical presentations (jigging and dropshotting) are a mess, suspending crankbaits don't actually suspend, lure action animations are non-existent. I don't mind the somewhat complicated fish fighting/casting technique. It works. And trying to hook a big one is actually still fun. The game isn't too easy at least. A full-fledged sim game is what I'd love to see (really fleshed out career mode, managing finances, really detailed weather and lake ecology features). But, those aren't here. If you find it on sale, you can waste a few hours and have fun though. Look for it on sale. Expand

    This game could have been so much more, I played it when what I thought was a proof of concept phase - I saw the release and downloaded itThis game could have been so much more, I played it when what I thought was a proof of concept phase - I saw the release and downloaded it again on Game Pass, the lures don't have action, the wake on the boat is all wrong - they sell the Unreal Engine but it looks like a web based engine - they were so close. The fish fighting mechanic is rather well done and I would say the best out there. How the line acts in the water is almost true to life + the casting mechanic is almost spot on. However, that's when it just falls flat on its face. Give it sometime, I hope with the sales they will get the cash for better developers and 3D artists or even a Game Producer for that matter - this is all QA or should I say QC issues. Good luck studio, too bad you guys and girls don't have the budget to make this amazing. I will still play it but to be honest I just want more and am rooting for you! You can do it! - a real angler and a real gamer. Expand

    The game is straight up broken! The sound goes in and out. It constantly boots to error screen. If you try a tournament in career mode youThe game is straight up broken! The sound goes in and out. It constantly boots to error screen. If you try a tournament in career mode you can't weigh in the game just hangs. Had high hopes but this is more of a cluster than cyberpunk Expand
