N64 Retrospective

Bass Hunter 64: For the inner-fisherman in all of us.

Do you like bassbasshunter-64? Do you like fishing for bass? If so, do I have the game for you. It’s called Bass Hunter 64, and in it, get this, you fish for bass. Amazing I know.

Bass Hunter 64 is a very simple game. Its you, a rod and a motor boat. You zoom around a lake to the right spot, you pick the right lure and cast your line. Then you hope a fish bites and you fight that sucker until you reel it in. Then you do it all over again.  I never said it was the most interesting game.

This is about as interesting as it gets.

There are two modes, Championship and Fish for Fun. In Championship, you have a set amount of time to catch the biggest bass possible in a particular lake.  If you place in top #3, you get points which allow you to buy better equipment. In Fish for Fun, you… fish for fun. Though in a game like Bass Hunter 64, fun is a relative term.  To be honest, without the goal and pressure of a time limit, things get boring real fast in Fish for Fun, so just stick with the Championship mode.

So should you seek this out? Well, like I said at the start, do you like fishing for bass? If so, seek this out. I don’t exactly have much experience with fishing games, but its actually a pretty good bass hunting game from what I could gleam. The graphics were decent, the controls were good and the bass simulation seems pretty real(for the n64 anyway).  I honestly couldn’t find anything wrong with this game. It’s a solid fishing game if that’s what floats your boat.

Ign score: 7.6 Their bottom line was that this was cool game for fishing fans, everyone else give a rent. I agree with that.
