"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)

Es un buen juego de pool, su interfaz y estilo de juego es interesante y entretenido, incluyendo misiones y tipos de tiros que hacen el juego una mezcla entre lo real y lo fantansioso, haciendo muy interesante ademas de poder jugar online.

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.

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

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.

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.

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).

Now, I can enjoy pool from the comfort of my computer instead of my local bar, which is full of ruffians and murders. 10/10.

Got this game on sale for $1.50, same damn price to play a REAL game of pool!!
Let me just say it's worth every dirty quarter you woulda slipped into that sexy-♥♥♥ pool table in real life.
If you are looking for the perfect pool (not-the-swimming-kind) experience... Look no further.
Pool Nation isn't only the best pool game I've ever played- it just might be the best GAME I've ever played! (aside from the darts minigame in Shenmue).

Do yourself (and your friends) a favor and buy this game.

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

Sometimes looks like it's better than real Cue sports.

Amazing quality. Accessibility is beyond great. Good AI.

Replays of your shots are addicting.
