Changelog V1.42 (Hotfix)

January 22nd, 2014

As you know we like to keep you updated on any major fixes..

The last build update introduced a fairly serious bug where you could start an online game before the other person selected 'Ready'. This strangely caused bad things to happen - and we don't want that do we? :)

You'll be pleased to know this has now been fixed in the new build.

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.”
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

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!

Possibly one of the most addictive games I've ever played, Pool Nation emulates real-world billiards perfectly and has plenty of different game modes and unlockables to increase the replay value.
