    This game really surprised me in that it is fun and easy to play. I've almost completed playing against every AI opponent and wish there were more AI players to play against but I really enjoy how easy it is to setup your shot with the xbox controller. Shooting simply involves pulling the R stick back and pushing forward while the D pad can be used to fine tune where you hit the ball with the cue. The ability to quickly switch to overhead view (you can play the entire game in overhead view) is really nice. I also like the other bonus type games which give a variety to the 8 or 9 ball missions. There's not a lot of pool games on the xbox market but it;s nice to see that this one was done right. Well worth the $20 I paid for it. It has kept me occupied for weeks. I only wish they had a specific 'trick' shot set of missions but you can make trick shots at any time fairly easy in the 8 or 9 ball missions. This is a well designed pool game. Expand

    Pool Nation offers nice variation, but you really have to be a pool fanatic to really enjoy it.

    On the execution side, Pool Nation is all hit. I absolutely feel that there is no more accurate representation of the game of pool, and was really impressed with all the extra features Cherry Pop Games added to the overall product.
  3. Easy on the pockets and surprisingly fresh. [Christmas 2012, p.97]
