    If you like pool, get this game.

    There seems to be a strange split in reviews of this game, and I'd like to add my two bits. My only theory on this is that the bad reviews are coming from people that don't really like or play pool to begin with. I've ... Read Full Review

What Gamespot Users have to say about Bankshot Billiards 2

  • Rating:7

    The Gamespot Review is very inaccurate

    "Fixed viewpoint" "Top Down" ?? I wish "Reviewers" would take the appropriate time to fully explore games before writing,,, when something as simple as pressing the left direction on the D-Pad is missed and it takes t... Read Full Review

    Gamespot's review was way off.It is fun and has more than just a bird's eye view.It is easy to learn and lots of fun

    Gamespot's review is totally biased.It's amazing, when you consider there are no billiard or pool games for the XBox 360 console avaiable. So finally one game producer makes one and Gamespot bashes it, because it doesn't... Read Full Review

    Gamespot underrated this game!

    This game is actually quite fun! If Uno can score an 8.2, then this game should have definately gotten an 8 by the same standards. The game's graphics are minimalist, but what is there is pretty polished (as they are i... Read Full Review

    The Balls are too light and the physica are a little off...but still entertaining.

    First, I only paid 800 points for this. I heard people were paying 1200 points at one time...that is way too much! I love Billiard video games. I was a fan of Paradise Pool. This game is just not the same league, but th... Read Full Review

    Overpriced but Worth the Experience

    Ah pool, the thought of Bankshot Billiards brings me back to the days of yahoo pool when I used to try and pwn nubs on there while I was trying to pass those long summer nights back in junior high school. This high defin... Read Full Review

    Poor physics completely ruins this game

    Wow! That's about all I could say after playing a bit with Bankshot Billiards 2. Wow as in, "I can't believe anyone could make a game this bad." The basic tenants of physics seem not to apply to this game. You know, ... Read Full Review

    The Camera does NOT have a fixed position.

    I've read the reviews for this game and don't understand some of the negative ones. For starters the look of the game is clean and effective. I don't expect ultra graphical splendor on an xbox Live arcade game. What I... Read Full Review

    i think this is a great game. that hasn't been given a proper chance.

    I think that this was a very good game and well worth the money (I did get it cheaper than most at 800 points). I thought that at first the computer seemed too hard and seemed to be getting a lot of lucky shots but afte... Read Full Review

    Nimble, but not so easy on the eyes.

    This game presents pool in a bright palette of colors. That is definitely a plus. However, the title then loses some of this goodwill with its small onscreen figures and the minute degree of control over the stick. All y... Read Full Review
