Sega Marine Fishing isn't exactly the most accurate fishing simulation in the world, but Sega has stripped fishing down to its bare essence: hooking and landing fish. You use a fishing controller which provides a more realistic feal of an actual rod and reel

The game is set over four fields, three of which are readily selectable, and the final one becomes available when you clear the previous three. Upon starting the game, you are given a limited number of lures to choose from and a limited amount of time in which to land a preset point value worth of fish. Each different species of fish is worth a certain number of points, and you also receive bonus points for the weight of each fish. Once you've surpassed the required number of points, you move on to the next stage. Unfortunately, this is about as involved as the game gets.

Musically, the game is somewhat spotty. While the game excels in terms of graphics, it comes up a little short in the sound department. The bulk of the in-game music is fast-paced, loud guitar rock. While the music adds to the excitement when you have a fish on the line, it gets repetitive fast. This can easily be remedied, though, by unlocking new songs by catching certain fish in original mode.
