  1. Antagonist
    Simplistic, annoying, and suffers from quirky controls and poor audio. It's also a hell of a lot of fun to play.
  2. Dreamcast HQ
    And the best part about Maximum Pool? ONLINE baby! Online play supports all games in Maximum Pool, both traditional and "maximum" hidden games.
  3. 78
    For what it's worth, Maximum Pool, with it's online play and easy interface, is a solid Dreamcast pool game.
  4. Daily Radar
    It's simplistic and mechanical, and just doesn't deliver the feel of a smoky pool hall where skill rules out over luck.
  5. Definitely not a "maximum" of anything, dismally low number of gameplay options, pretty but useless opponents, oversimplified cue-stick interaction, and way-sensitive controls.
  6. A standard pool game with overly simplified control and fewer game modes than most other pool games on the market. Maximum Pool's only saving grace is its online play.
  7. But even with the $29.95 price tag, I can't recommend a purchase of this title. There are just too many good Dreamcast games out this holiday to worry about this one.
