"Do you like pool but hate having to leave your house because you are a nerd? Get this so you can play pool online."

Críticas

“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.”
ROCK, PAPER, SHOTGUN

““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

El mejor juego de billar.

Al principio puede parecer un poco lioso el control, pero te acostumbrás rápido y acaba siendo intuitivo.
Se puede jugar simplemente con ratón, sin necesidad de teclado, salvo para mirar alguna vez desde arriba.

+Hay una buena variedad de modos de juego.
-El online esta desierto.

Si te gusta el billar, te gustará este juego.
Si no te gusta el billar, te gustará este juego (sobretodo si lo compras rebajado xD)

EL juego de billar de Steam. No hay otro con más personalidad y más cutre al mismo tiempo que este. Terriblemente divertido, si te gustan mínimamente estas cosas.

Las críticas positivas dicen que es el mejor juego de billar disponible en Steam. No sé si es cierto, porque no he jugado a los demás. A mí no me ha enganchado, porque la mecánica no es ágil, armar los tiros me resulta demasiado tedioso, la interacción del ratón y el teclado con el taco no es demasiado intuitiva, el punto de vista que ofrece la cámara 3d es lógico pero poco descriptivo de lo que ocurre en la mesa (sobre todo cuando picamos la bola) y además me da la sensación de que la bola patina demasiado, que es demasiado ligera. Estas son las pegas que tengo con el sistema y la física del juego.

Y luego está la estética, entre funky y psicodélica, que es superhortera. Al principio es graciosa, pero luego me doy cuenta que no ayuda al juego. En primer lugar, porque los decorados y los materiales de las mesas crean un ambiente brillante y plastiquero muy artificial, que queda lejos del olor a madera rancia y cerveza barata que asocio con el billar; y en segundo lugar porque arruina el valor de los premios que podemos desbloquear. ¿Para qué quiero conseguir un nuevo set de bolas, si cada uno es más feo que el anterior y además por su diseño galáctico hace difícil diferenciar las bolas rayadas de las lisas? ¿Para qué quiero conseguir un vinilo, si el diseño es tan absurdo que luego no quiero ponerlo en la mesa de juego?

Lo compré rebajado, aproximadamente a dos euros. No me arrepiento de haberlo probado, pero no creo que vuelva a jugar a él.

Gran juego de billar. Físicas muy conseguidas.
Muy buenos gráficos y banda sonora.
Variedad de escenarios, tacos y bolas.
Incluye online (aunque hay pocos jugadores)
Buena colección de logros (20), dos de ellos son un poco dificiles, pero se consiguen.

La única pega que le veo es la traducción al español, en algunas misiones no queda muy claro lo que hay que hacer.
No obstante gran juego, si te gustó en su día Virtual Pool, este te gustará.

gran precio para este videojuego

Pool Nation es el juego de billar más realista y mejor adaptado que he visto en mi vida. Se acabó eso de ver la mesa solamente desde vista cenital. Ahora con mover el ratón se puede ver cualquier ángulo de la mesa con una comodidad tremenda. Están Todos los modos de juego de Billar, todas las técnicas de tiro, hasta las más profesionales, un tutorial que te irá enseñando cómo ganar al rival con esos toques mágicos que todos hemos soñado realizar algún día sobre la mesa de un pool. Rivales con distíntas tácticas y técnicas de juegos. Modos de juego adicionales: resistencia, contrarreloj, etc. Y por supuesto, el modo multijugador para medirte contra otros jugadores en línea.

A éste juego solo le veo pros, hasta en la banda sonora, estilo Chill-Out que se reproduce mientras juegas y en las bolas entroneradas por tiros especiales a cámara lenta. Las repeticiones de la partida y un sinfín de cosas. En cuanto a los DLC que te puedes comprar, son puramente estéticos, lo cuál no hace que tengas que pagar más si no quieres.

Nota: Inclye Modo Flashback!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Pool Nation is the most realistic pool fittest I've ever seen in my life. It´s over to see the table only from overhead view. Now move your mouse and you can see every angle of the table with a great comfort. They are All Billiard game modes, all shooting techniques, even the most professional. A tutorial that will teach you how to earn rival with those magical touches we've all dreamed of one day performing on a pool table. Opponents with different tactics and techniques of games. Additional game modes: endurance, time trial, etc. And of course, the multiplayer mode to measure yourself against other players online.

In this game I only view see pros, even the soundtrack: Chill-Out style that plays while you play and balls pocketed by special shots in slow motion. The repetitions of the game and endless things. As for the DLC that you can buy, they are purely aesthetic, so what does that have to pay more if you want.

Note: Includes Flashback Mode!

the best game I have ever come across, I hit the cue ball towards the edge thing and it flew off the table and into my face!

if I had 3d I would have ducked srsly it was that real. bloody screen so real!

also you can play online or offline (whats that?) against ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE aka AI these are bots ("robots") which have been developed by the developers in order to provide opponents for people who don't understand they have the internet or are lonely or something like that.

apparently these ai's have been around for a long time in games, but in pool, nation they are extremely useful because your friend didnt buy himself the game but bought it just for you.

graphics - 10 million out of square root cubed
general ambience - 80000%
balls - 9 when you play 9 ball pool

absolute significant milestone in history of gaming

Pool Nation is one of my favorite games on Steam. The solid gameplay and controls were not enough for Cherry Pop Games, they went ahead and added some beautiful locations each offered during day, sunset, and neon lit night time. The amazing soundtrack gets you in the mood whether you want to relax or get pumped. The game modes for single player include 3ball, 8ball, 9ball, endurance, golf, killer, rotation, speed, and straight. In addition, you can play online versus friends in a friendly match or choose to be competitive in tournament mode. The most recent update includes "box of tricks" free of charge, allowing you to create a custom trick shot that you can share with the world. This game is the complete package.

Pool Nation is one of the most polished indie games of 2013- the animations are shiny and smooth, the gameplay is responsive and the physics are realistic. You won't find yourself screaming at this game for bouncing your balls in the wrong direction, or glitching out and dropping your cue ball through the table. With eleven game modes including tournaments, online play, and single-player endurance mode; as well as a slew of collectables to unlock, Pool Nation has no shortage of goodies to keep gameplay fresh.

The single player component revolves primarily around tournaments where you take on AI challengers of ever increasing difficulty. Each match has an associated list of challenges, and completing them unlocks a variety of cosmetic changes like cues and balls. Standard games like 9 ball are present along with more interesting options like Golf, which challenges you to put specific balls into specific pockets. There’s also a time attack style mode, where balls spawn on the table and you have to sink as many as possible in the time limit. There are Free Play, Versus, and Online modes present too, but I had a hard time finding anyone to challenge online.

Pool Nation is a great looking game that features bright and shiny graphics that makes each game, literally, feel new and different. There are some good themes on the game's soundtrack, and though the game's controls look difficult to use, they aren't difficult to learn. There are also options that can be easily turned on or off to give players assists in a game including arrows that point at the next balls that need to be hit or arrows that show where a ball will travel when hit. All of these features combine to make an excellent presentation for Pool Nation.

But is it fun? In short stints I definitely enjoyed playing the game, but it isn’t the type of thing I’d want to play for hours at a time. Having said that, I think Pool Nation is the kind of experience that would be a hit at a house party. If you’ve been searching far and wide for a Billiards simulator, and don’t have room for an actual table, Pool Nation is probably the solution. The physics are solid, the controls allow for extreme fine tuning of shots, and everything looks super shiny. A few more game types would be welcome, but for $10 Pool Nation is the gold standard in the category.

The sound and music is perfect and 100% matching the game itsself
Breathtaking and simplistic stages to the point i didnt want my turn to come.Just wanted to watch
Gameplay is as to be expected 2 axis controls and a power meter with some game modes
Slow mo cams for those OOOOOOOOOOO moments
Shiny and polished like a new car
Text and voice chat...Read below!
Sensitivity lock so you can get that lazer precision without moving you mouse ultra slow
Has practice mode to memorize yourself with physics without pressure to win
Many stages/sticks
Ranked and non ranked matchs

About text chat! When someone sends you text it will be displayed for a very short time and you may miss it.To view or write text you need to open the chat box and when the chat box is open you cant do anything else.There should be a mode to keep text given by the other player from fading or a longer fading time

Other then low population this game MAY have i do reccomend this game to hardcore and casual

I love play pool games, and with this one is not diferent
many game modes and good musics
you can go to the training, watch all your moves with the hint system
or just turn off the hint system and play It just like the original pool table
but warning is not the hint system in the options menu, it hint system before start the match
ok you ready to go, see some hints

o = top down view, oldschool but control the cue is not that easy in this camera
v = camera view is great to look around
f = focus It just like fps crosshair very cool
qe = special for jump the ball or go back
82465 = hit uper,down, left and right in white ball, good for changing white balls destination, and 5 go to center
left click = ok this is a problem for old pool gamers, you actually click and simulate a cue power going back and foward I see that before, but is very hard to understand how it works

9/10

I like playing pool in real life so I had to try this. This game is very good! Physic work likes it should and it is also visually pleasing. Music suits your pool playing needs. I tried this during free weekend when two other games was also available to play so I did not have time to play this as much as I would have liked to. Hope I will get back to this when it is again free or when in very good sale!

AUDIO: Moody                                                    AESTHETIC: Beautiful
MEMORABILITY: Good                                      WORTH: Discounted

PROS: Solid pool simulator with reasonably-dependable multiplayer. Fun single-player tournament mode. Game has a fair amount of complexity not offered in other similar games allowing players to pull off cool shots.

CONS: Game has the tendency to occasionally glitch out. Planned features appear to be on an indefinite hiatus, and much-needed updates haven't happened. A bit tough to get a more advanced grasp on the controls. A lot of balls will fly off the table before you get a good feel for what will happen.

OVERALL: A fun game to share with friends, and it goes on sale for 1.00-2.00USD rather often. The game seems to have an active community, though it has been hard for me personally to get in touch with players I've reached out to. Hoping to see more updates.

                                                    
SCORE: 7/10
