This update of Sega Bass Fishing Duel uses the interactive Wii wand as the pole. Jerk the wand forward to cast. Tug it to the left to reel in bass from the left. It's simple.
The camera angle dips underwater and follows fish faces chasing your hooks, lines and sinkers. An offscreen narrator tells you when to "turn the rod left," to help you battle large fish.
You pile up as many fish as you can in time trials. Fish either rush to your tackle or hide in dark corners, depending on basic factors: the depth of the pond, the time of day, and sunshine-to-rainy outings.
The game is a fine little excursion from reality, to be spent in bursts of time-killing rather than as all-night affairs.
