  1. One of the better billiards outings released for consoles in quite a long time.
  2. The custom characters and supposedly unique environments offer too little variety, and the commentary ranges from cheesy-bad to flat-out useless. Thankfully, it's still a good, if uninspired, pool sim at its core. [Mar 2004, p.38]
  3. Online play is restricted, the gameplay is slow, the AI is unbalanced, and the camera isn't as smooth or as "dynamic" as in Monkey Ball.
  4. It may capture your attention for about one game of 9-ball or doing some trick shots, but career mode will bore the balls out of you. [Jan 2004, p.133]

    This game does not have the best graphics but the game play is alright.

    You'd think a pool game would be relatively easy to design. There's not a lot to it compared to other games. The strengths here are it's career mode and ball control. The weakness' are the camera (sometimes you will not even be able to see the pocket you're aiming at), graphics, and general unslick design. Overall Super Monkey Ball has a better game of billiards.
