Reviews

“Yes, it’s a pool game, and you could argue that there’s not much more to say beyond that. But pool is a rare sight on the PC, unless it’s of the top-down Flash variety, and this is a bloody good example of the form. ‘Hole in one’, as they say at the Crucible.”

““In fact it could be the shiniest game to ever grace a console. Now as Pool Nation nears its North American debut, Cherry Pop Games shows that this is anything but a port to another console but rather an upgraded version that took everything that made the 360 version great and added even more.”
97/100 – Game Focus

““It’s easy to suggest that Pool Nation is the finest example of virtual pool... but to do CherryPop Games’ work justice it must be said that they have delivered what is in fact one of the best pool videogames ever to grace a console.””
95/100 – Bio Gamer Girl

A decent pool title with gorgeous graphics and loaded with intuitive features. The developers tried really hard on making the tournaments exciting with interesting character and level designs, but playing against the AI still feels hollow since every game feels mostly the same, with no animations other than the pool table.

Worth picking up, but has little staying power despite a lot of features. Multiplayer servers are also dead.

Picked this one up in a sale - the best $0.99 I've ever spent!

It stands alongaide Euro Truck Simulator 2 as one of my go to itles when I just want to kick back and relax for a while.

10/10 would spent $0.99 from my hard-earned trading card sales again!

Recommendation Summary
Pool Nation is a game basically involving you playing pool. The game itself has good graphics, and a good UI. I am not experienced with pool simulations, but this game is what I imagine to be the top tier video game for pool simulation. If you are not a pool player, such as myself, then you will still enjoy this game, whether actively engaged, or passively listening to something else. It is a great little game that is worth taking a look at if you are interested. I recommend this game for really anyone.

I don't really try to take this game too seriously. I mostly play it when I need to think or if I'm planning a grocery list.

But in all seriousness, it has decent ball physics and there's a true to life satisfaction when sinking the balls in order and never sinking the cue ball. Love every second of it.

My only complaint is there's only one background, I'd love to play in a smoky cafe or bar with moody light and a lit cigar on the counter.

Sometimes, you need a game that's frenetic, fast paced and full of chaos. You need some escapism so you get away from the humdrum of your day job by pretending to be some beefcake named Slab Rockhard blast some bugs to bits with your AK - 22.

Other times though, you need to come home, kick back, crack a brewski and chill out. Take it easy, shoot some pool like a pro and relax. That's what you have Pool Nation for. It's zero pressure, it's zero chaos. It's 100% cool, daddy-o. It's got some great physics too, so you can shoot pool and feel like a king.

Because some times, you need to come home and pretend that you're a slick mo-fo pool shark. Because if you tried to play pool in the real world, people would realize you're a 40 year old dork in dad jeans try his damnedest to look cool.

I uh...that may have gotten too personal.

Best pool game i've played to date. I really hope they make more modes and add more game play types other than that this game is very fun. The game looks gorgeous too with its over the top bling bling graphics, a very good art-style IMO.

Music is also very neat. Definitely worth purchasing.

This is without a doubt the best pool game for PC i've ever played. You can play 9-ball, 8-ball and a bunch of minigames like killer, straight, etc. Both single and multi are super fun modes. What is more, two DLCs (box of tricks and snooker) are coming while I'm writing this review.

To sum up, if you like pool you must check out this game!

If you are looking for a super realistic pool game, you are in the right place.

10/10 Physics
10/10 Display
10/10 Music
10/10 Game modes

Online match system is just super good, but sadly you rarely see people playing.

the only problem is that the table has a high friction, if you are a real-life pool player, you would expect balls to go a little bit further but they don't.

A really decent Pool Sim for the price, Physics are accurate and cue control is tight (Beware that you cannot just hit the ball at full power) Thay are planning a trickshot mode and snooker as well. The game looks and feels amazing and is updated frequently. Awesome game I have played this so much since I got it.

This game stands up to VP4 and Jimmy White's 2 Cueball :)

The developers are so friendly and listen to any suggestions/feedback you have

GET THIS GAME! NOW!

Pool Nation isn't a perfect pool game, but it's a huge step up from what's come before. If you're not already a billiards fan, Pool Nation won't make you one. Conversely, for those dying to scratch the billiards itch, Pool Nation is sure to satisfy. An entertaining, highly varied and technically excellent pool game, even if lacking in innovation or new elements for its genre.With Pool Nation you'll get a pooling experience that you've never had before. The simulator delivers several game modes and a lot of options to choose from. Every kind of shot that you can imagine is possible to make in the game and because of that you can truly speak of a great simulator. Another big plus are the graphics, which are truly stunning for a low budget title. Overall, Cherry Pop Games's first endeavour has left us with a fantastic billiards game featuring stunning visuals, great audio and even better physics. The lengthy, albeit difficult career mode, will give you plenty of play time but perhaps for the wrong reasons. If you're looking for a realistic, stylish, and fun billiards game, Pool Nation is the cream of the crop.
