  1. With presentation that's lacking flair, no tournament options, sub-standard opponent AI, no rule variations other than 8 or 9 ball pool and limited stimuli to continue playing, Frontline Studios appear to have just gone through the motions with Actua Pool.
  2. I expected this game to revolutionize the virtual pool market, but in the end, it proves that there is nothing new in the world of virtual pool and for the best pool game, you should just play the real deal.
  3. Underground Pool could have been a fun portable billiards experience for your Nintendo DS but limited touch screen action, unintelligent opponent AI and poor controls make this one a game you should skip.
  4. Tables are too squished on the DS screen, making the balls seem massive, but using the stylus to direct the cue and set power is pretty effective. [Apr 2007, p.70]

    If you’re a pool enthusiast who finds they can’t get a table at the pub, then Actua Pool will fix your cravings, just don’t go expecting anything special.

    There is nothing good to say about Underground Pool. Everything about it is either frustrating, boring, or stupid.
  7. Underground Pool is a squalid representation of the game of billiards.
