  1. Graphics suck, and so does the sound. To play the game successfully, you will have to practice a lot in advance.
  2. Poor presentation, poor playability, AI-fueled opponent… If you are fan of pool games, there are simply better options available.
  3. Twitchy controls and poor presentation eclipse what little fun there is to be had with this middling billiards game.
  4. 24
    The game is about on par with a chop-shop web game, and does very little to use the Wii controls at all.
  5. Everything you can think of is wrongfully done in this game.
  6. It was a game no-one noticed because no-one should notice this. Ever. Don't bother looking at it never mind buying or renting it.
  7. Pool Party isn't pretty, it doesn't sound nice and it definitely isn't clever. Aside from the obvious fact that World Championship Snooker is the best cue-sports game around at the moment, not only do I genuinely believe that the original incarnation of Virtual Pool circa 1996 is infinitely better than this, I personally would rather be playing an online portable pool game such as Yahoo! Pool, which while only being 2D and top-down, plays a much truer game and is a lot more fun.
