“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

Um jogo surpreendentemente bom, principalmente se você jogá-lo usando o controle Xbox (porque o uso do mouse tira bastante da jogabilidade). A música tem um tom comtemporâneo e relaxante, sem ser monótona. A Física do jogo é precisa. Tem muito modos de jogo competitivos, single e multiplayer. Mas, apenas com os modos de jogo livre, já dá para gastar algumas boas horas. Recomendo.

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.

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.

A fantastic pool simulator. Frustratingly accurate! Turn off the assists for a proper experience but I warn you... It is frustratingly addictive. The A.I opponents will make quick work of you for making small errors in the later tournaments but it certainly isn't unfair. Just like real pool sometimes you will let your shot go & know you have messed up as soon as the cue touches the whiteball.

Pool Nation is a suprisingly good game. However annoying and cliche the music is it surpasses quite alot of the ♥♥♥♥ on steam. The gameplay works well. Physics are very good and accurate. Visually it is amazing and is an all round enjoyable game. You can play with a friend and having a nice game of pool. Are take a tournament by storm and listen to some tunes while your at it. I never thought I would buy a pool game but for £1.04 it was so worth it. It is definetely worth even £7. I recommend giving this game a go. Although it may not be a game you spend hours upon hours playing it is for sure a game worth getting. It is on the top shelf of my game cupboard not in the back rotting with the humble bundle games I say I'll get round to play but never do.
I r8 8/8 m8.

Played during free time but i wont buy because im not a pool fan

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 Although im not sure if they are unlocked with real cash
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

If you are a billiards fan this is a game for you.

Yeah, duh, right?

Well it's got challenges to matches, a single player progression, multiplayer, and more.

I could go on and on but this game is well worth the money. I lucked out and got it on sale, so keep your eyes open for one before you buy it at full price, but imo it's still worth it.

Oh it is pretty much designed to be played with a controller, but you can play with the mouse and keyboard too.

This is a pool game that if you run thru the totorals you will find is equal to Jennet Lee Pool 3d. In many ways it's better with the rewards that are only visual but are impressive none the less. It has all the things other pool games lack like jumps, curves and so on. I paid under $5 for it and knowing now would have paid more!

this is a really nice game to just chill out to

but i kinda hate the power-bar system in which you need to pull it back and then push to make a hit
really uncomfurtable to me

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 only disliked one thing about this pool game. The right joystick on a 360 pad is used to not only select shot power (pulling back the stick), but also to execute a shot (pushing up on the stick). With all the strategy that goes into each shot, it's too easy to accidentally execute a shot in this manner. Worse still, it is possible to push up on the stick with no options set, executing a medium power shot with no options set (power, stick angle, ball spin). In the options, I could see where to remap some things, but not this. I really want shot execute to be a button, not a stick that I can bump...otherwise, fantastic game, great price! This flaw is gamebreaking for me though unless I have a solution to it.

Good looking game with pretty reasonable physics, even if the tables seem to have a lot of drag on them, balls feel like they slide rather than roll. Lining up shots is a chore with iffy mouse controls. This is one of those games where you are controlling something with the mouse (the cue stick), but there is still a mouse pointer in a different area of the screen and they don't correspond at all. It is frustrating and distracting and something I didn't expect to see this side of glitchy Windows XP games. It's like half of the game was designed around a controller and the other half was made for keyboard and mouse.

I'm sure there is a bit of a gem buried in here if I dig long enough but it just doesn't seem worth the effort.

On the plus side you can totally cheat using a straight edge on your monitor to line up your shots, if you cared enough.

Bought on sale for $1.49.

I have tried this game, and I found the controls to be far from intuitive for me. Maybe this game might be enjoyable to a dedicated gamer who has a passion for pool, but for me, it lacks the feel of a real pool table, and yet also lacks the arcade feel which makes casual gaming enjoyable to me.

Stay. Far. Away. From. Singleplayer. Play multiplayer only!

the AI is stupid smart in this game, they won't show any remorse or any mercy to you

IF YOU MAKE ONE SCRATCH! JUST ONE! they will decimate you like your nothing. Or they will put the balls in position where you can't win or make cheap moves to make the AI have a better or even greater advantage over you which isn't necessary because they already one they just want to rub it in your face some more.

the tutorial doesn't help either or it does but the AI will still have that "Better" over you and also you might want to reconfigure the controls because this game is extremely senstitive

I highly encourage players to play on multiplayer with friends and not play singleplayer until you are ready and sure of yourself.

Honestly this game should be Multiplayer only and not singleplayer because the AI mechanics is broken adn this game is better with friends

I spent a lot of time looking around for a good pool game. While there are a few options on steam, Pool Nation is by far the best option. I am quite satisfied playing it and, have lost track of time too often! The physics are great, it plays great and has a lot of different game options. The only thing I wish it had was Snooker, but it seems that most pool games do either 8-Ball & 9-Ball, or just Snooker.

I picked this up while it was on sale and have been quite happy! I say even at full price, this game is well worth it for any pool enthusiasts!

A very well polished game, offers everything you would ask of a pool game.

Pros:
- Great graphics.
- Tons of modes, customizations and AI personalities.

Cons:
- Not a lot of players online to play against.

A must buy for pool lovers.
