  • Summary: Succeeding in the surprisingly competitive PlayStation 2 billiards genre isn't easy, but Q-Ball competes with a wide selection of game options. Seven modes of play are available: straight pool, free play, eight ball, US nine ball, international nine ball, rotation, frozen, plus carrot, random six, and bowlliards. Q-Ball also makes full use of the analog buttons and sticks for you to determine the power and angle of your shots.
    With beautiful graphics and precision ball movement, billiards has never been this real! Qball: Billiards Master is a pool player's dream, using the power of the PlayStation 2 to create an unforgettably challenging game.
    Play in style with QBall!

  1. Q-Ball does a good job of "simming" pool for professional players, and thereby seems more real then "Real."
  2. This is a good pool game with lots to offer -- but it'll likely bore players pretty quickly.
  3. If you're a console pool shark, this one is worth picking up, but it doesn't do anything to distinguish itself from other recent billiards efforts.
  4. If you're expecting more than just a straightforward simulation, however, Q-Ball isn't going to do the trick.
  5. It's fine for now, but you better love pool or be ready to spend time learning 'english' all over again.
  6. It's the best pool title you can get on any system right now... In the end, the question you have to ask yourself is, will I really spend enough time with this game to warrant a $50 purchase?
  7. I really wanted to like this game. I just can’t. The game feels rushed and is totally uninspiring.
