    A very good pool simulation, with great ball and shot physics. It could have used some more play modes, but it remains a recommended game at a very good price.

    Pure Pool is a great arcade game that looks better than it deserves to. The physics are flawless, down to the frustrating pocket bouncer shots.

    This simple pool sim is as polished as a cue ball and belongs to anyone who likes the game.

    The problem is, we have real friends who'll accompany us to real pubs with real tables on which we can play real pool. So why do we need a slightly sterile virtual version? [Feb 2015, p.83]

    For the occasional game of pool you won’t be disappointed.

    Play it with a friend for a few yours and then forget about it; it's so simple to learn that you'll have [it] mastered in that time anyway. [Issue#156, p.117]

    In short, Pure Pool is an excellent simulation of the sport of pool, but everything outside of the cue-to-ball action itself is lazily done.

    Pros: Awesome graphics, easy controls, solid gameplay.

    Cons: Ball-to-ball and ball-to-cushion physics are a little sketchy but definitely
    Pros: Awesome graphics, easy controls, solid gameplay.

    Cons: Ball-to-ball and ball-to-cushion physics are a little sketchy but definitely playable, some of the stars are too difficult to get (e.g. you need to earn one by getting out of a snooker but the AI never attempts to put you in one).

    Minor quibbles aside this is a really nice game, and snooker DLC is on the way :)

    Great mechanics in the game, but the game options, menus and gametypes are a bit lack lustre. I enjoyed the first few hours and then got a bit bored.

    Pretty enough graphics. You can't add player 2 with a live login.. which is really cheap and nasty. Either way this is fun for a pool nightPretty enough graphics. You can't add player 2 with a live login.. which is really cheap and nasty. Either way this is fun for a pool night at home. Surely the fancy kinect 2 could work here? Expand
