  1. A great new way to play pool, a great way to play straight pool, and a great way to get friends playing together. It needs just a little more variety, but with no other faults it is an essential purchase from the Playstation Network Store and a demonstration of the quality we should now come to expect from Dark Energy Digital.
  2. Inferno Pool plays sublimely; it's quick, intense, fun and something that keeps the player coming back for another go.
  3. Inferno Pool may well end up being one of the hidden gems of the PlayStation Network.
  4. An enjoyable, retro-infused pool game with a fiery multiplayer twist.
  5. 65
    Inferno Pool is a cool concept hindered by slippery controls and poor replay value.
  6. 53
    Inferno Pool doesn't have enough flair to make up for the fact that, though the idea is decent, it just isn't much fun. Sometimes a twist on a classic game doesn't pan out, and that is the case here.
  7. Just to add insult to injury, Inferno Pool started out as an iPhone app - costing a paltry 59p. Boo. [July 2009, p.97]

    A hugely enjoyable game, which has become a major time sink for myself and my friends.

    Really good fun! Multiplayer is definitley the best aspect but endurance mode is an addictive single player game as well!
