  1. This game is definitely a simulation that motivates for a long time, so fans won’t something similar with the gameplay.
  2. It's totally worth picking up. If you enjoy pool at all, especially in video game form, than Hustle Kings is pretty much tailor made for you.
  3. Hustle Kings is one of the most enjoyable and sizeable PSN games in a long time, and quite possibly the finest pool or billiards replication ever committed to a videogame.
  4. With a wealth of options and modes and this is one of the best value titles on PSN. [Jan 2010, p.94]
  5. While not perfect by any stretch of the imagination, it is one of the better video pool games I've played and certainly worth a look if billiards is your game. With its robust online options and excellent physics, Hustle Kings is excellent if occasionally frustrating fun.
  6. Hustle Kings is an easy to pick up pool title accessible to the masses on PSN. Despite a few shortcomings, it'll keep fans entertained for some time to come. It is an excellent virtual pool game, nothing more, nothing less.

    Hustle Kings is a nice game, but nothing more than that. You can have a great time by playing this game, but of course it's much more fun to play pool for real.

    Excellent game, single player can get boring after a while but with the online modes and many different type of games you can play, this game is one of the best of its type. Expand

    Amazing game. Single player is very addictive and challenging. Best pool simulator I have ever played. This game makes you feel like you can go out and play real pool, even if you cant. Graphics are amazing. Online is addictive and you'll be going for the 100million HKC trophy for a while. One of the top 4 PSN games. For $10, this game is a STEAL Expand

    Graphically the game is near perfect - certainly very highly commended given its low price. Controls are good, although in analog mode taking shots feels somewhat like guesswork. Where the game falls down, though, is the sense of involvement - or lack of it. Offline or online you don't really feel as if you're having fun. Once you've started an online game there is no way to interact with an opponent, so it all feels a bit remote, clinical, cold. This probably isn't helped by having no sounds other than music (if you want it) and FX - no applause for good shots, gasps at near misses etc. Expand

    Looks good, plays terrible! without using an aiming line you have to hit every ball much thicker than you would in real life so whats the point in playing, it will ruin your real game!!! be warned...i play to a high level for real so should know. It is an un forgivable mistake, especially after all the promise it showed before release. And finally no talking??? Fair enough if your down on your shot (haha) but silence? lets all go buy a table and lock ourselves in a sound proof room and wear glasses not made for us to re-inact this joke in real life....NOT!!!!!!! BOO! Expand
