Tis a shame. I just bought it (Xbox One). The gameplay, look and feel is smooth and really nice for a one-on-one with my missus on the couch but for anything else it needs a lot of updates.


The music is terrible and if you switch it off it still keeps telling you which track has just come on. There is hardly any control over the power of the shot (just pull back on the right joystick and push - no power indicator etc - its almost impossible to do a slow shot), the multi-player is weak and career mode has no personality whatsoever. Not only is there no story, it doesn't even feel like your in a tournament. Just game after game.

That said I do think its worth £8 even if just used for a local match but I'd love to see something more come of this game.

What's up with the in-game lighting? I can't see the pockets.

Looks exactly like pool nation in fact it looks like a pure rip off imo. Unless they are some how affiliated with each other. That said pool nation was awesome.

This is kinda sad. You guys know nothing of pool at all and all your complaints are just so stupid. I hope whoever is reviewing this isn't as ignorant as you guys.

Are you kidding me...a review? A pool game deserves nothing more than a couple of dudes screwing around with it. I'd be shocked if there was a review for this.
