  1. Without a doubt, the closest thing I've ever seen to a game that approximates a real honest-to-goodness game of pool...There is honestly nothing that you could want in a pool game that you won't find here -- well, with the exception of stale cigarette smoke and a fistfight or two.
  2. Virtual Pool 3 has it where it counts: high precision pool table action and awesome cool-and-confident A.I. opponents.
  3. By far the best pool sim available on the PC. The statistics and player ranking system appear to be slightly flawed, and the sound department lacks consistency, but the accurate physics model, along with a wide variety of game modes, game types, and other various options, make Virtual Pool 3 a clear-cut winner.
  4. The box says it's guaranteed to improve your real game. I believe it! [Mar 2001, p.83]
  5. Pool fans will be happy with this game (unless they have a "Diamond Viper II"), especially if they're snowed in this winter and can't get down to their local billiards hall.
  6. Get really good and you challenge real women’s champ Jeanette “The Black Widow” Lee in her beach house—where losing your shirt wouldn’t be so bad.
  7. The best pure simulation of pool currently available for the PC, but it lacks much in the way of frills and simple user-friendliness and warmth.
