While a game like Endless Ocean
gave the gaming community a moment to ponder exactly what
constitutes a "video game," I've never seen a classic title like SEGA Bass Fishing
(2001) make people ponder such depths. Probably because the arcade fishing franchise, adapted to the Wii on February 26th, comes equipped with a tacklebox full of recognizable video game features: Arcade, Tournament, Practice, and Nature Trip modes; 15 lake environments (seven new, four arcade, and four Dreamcast stages); four types of bass to hook; improved graphics over the arcade version; freedom to select time-of-day and season (as well as the fishes' appetite and depth); and over 20 types of lures. I'd be hard-pressed to come up with anything else I'd
want in a fishing game. Except for the ability to go SEGA Bass Fishing
on the couch next to you (the game is only single-player).
