  1. An attractive and faithful-enough experience.
  2. Go out and play pool. Some games are meant to be played in real life -- bowling, pinball, and especially pool.

    As for gameplay, the controls are well defined, but it does not give the sense of holding the pool stick. It feels more like you are controlling a science project because of the stiffness, but they are precise.
  4. The better money is with "Q-Ball Billiards Master," which is far and away better than this.
  5. If playing pool in real life were as awkward and non-intuitive as Real Pool is, then I probably would never play in real life, either!
  6. Why should I buy this game for $50 when I can go down the street to a bar and spend the same amount of time for about $49.25 less?
  7. Real Pool offers most of the same elements as "Q-Ball Billiards Master," but it goes about it in a bare-bones way.

    As a casual gamer of this type of game I found my attention span wavered. Quite honestly I would much rather go out and play pool in a real hall.
  9. It doesn't feel like you're playing pool, and these have got to be the most outdated-looking graphics seen on the PlayStation2.

    It's not a horrible game, but the one other pool game available at launch, "Q-Ball: Billiards Master," is just a tad bit better.
