“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

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

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.

Let me just preface this review by saying I rarely ever play pool in the real world. Pool nation is easily one of the most fun games available for its price on steam, with lots of replay value but also just because its a really good game to just play a couple of matches of to wind down.

+Great graphics
+Easy to learn controls
+Several game modes and several tournaments
+Good point system
+AI become more challening as you progress through tournaments
+Good tutorial
+Some interesting characters

+/-No consequences for losing matches in tournaments

-New balls, cues, decals etc. are only unlocked by participating in minigames for which there are no instructions
-Only a handful of different locations
-The Workshop is only used to share trickshot clips
-An issue where the cursor is visible in the game has gone unfixed for 3 months despite the devs knowing about it, the game is pretty difficult to play with a visible mouse cursor so my rating has decreased until it is fixed (if ever)

The Verdict:
6

A solid game which is great for a bit of fun when you need it to be.

Actually a damn good pool simulator. This game gives you a lot of options to manipulate how you hit the ball, and it provides great tutorials to show you how to use each one. If you like hustling some pool then I would recommend this game.

There really is no negative reviews this game should get. People buying it know exactly what the game is: billiards. It's not like there is at all any surprise. You don't get surprised that Taco Bell serves tacos so why would you be surprised a game called Pool Nation is anything but pool?

Overall I found it to be addictive fun. When I bought it, the game was at I'd say a dollar and it was the best thing I've ever bought with only one dollar (NOT EVEN TAX!) I could have bought gum or soda with that $1 but that won't last me and is not as enjoyable as something you can share in an online session with.

If you like or would want to learn about playing pool, this game is honestly the best (and only) pool game I know of. The only con is that because it is for the computer, the gameplay takes some time to get used to (whether you use the keyboard or a controller). However, the amount of time it takes you to learn how to play with buttons (versus using an actual pool stick) is time that you also gain experience and tips; so realistically you are not losing anything but gaining more than you pay for! Being taught how to play a sport (that can be used for real life) is so worth paying only a dollar for. McDonald's doesn't even have a dollar menu anymore; it's like $1.50. Though I was fortunate at the time and the game is back to its' original price, the pirce is $9.99 (NOT EVEN $10!!) so it's not too bad a price.

I SAY GET IT!!! But who am I to say? See for yourself. You won't be displeased.

+Physics: Way too realistic! :)
+Price: Cheap!!! :)
+Customizable: To some degree.
+ Music: Relaxing (If you are immature like me, I thought of porno background music).

Probably one of the most polished looking games on Steam right now.
Great physics, the controls are easy to pick up and the game contains tons of content for the price. The multiplayer is kinda dead but with a few friends it is still really fun. Unlike many other games on Steam, this game is optimized extremely well.

If you enjoy playing pool in real life, this is the game for you. Every trick you can do on a real pool table can be done within this game.

Some marks:

Physics - 10
Gameplay - 9
Graphics Performance - 10 (runs really smooth on my old laptop (2006) on high settings)
Graphics Visuals - 10 (the reflections are really nicely done)
Content - 9
Music - 9
Prize - 10 (Cheap, only €9.99 full prize, I got it on sale for €2.49 + you get a lot of content for it)
