Pool Nation PC REVIEW: Best Pool Game?! Steam Gameplay Commentary

Pool Nation – PC, PS3, Xbox 360
Score: 7.2 out of 10

Probably best as a gift for a friend ~~

– Cons
Camera controls are janky with mouse
Game is old and just a port
unlocks are all cosmetic, no real benefits
single player is weak, just a collection of tournaments that take no time
multiplayer is basically empty, I saw 1 person last night unranked
annoying interface issues, buttons sometimes not appearing or clicking?

– Pros
game looks appealing and has modern design
graphics are crisp enough, 8x AA
music is nice, modern MOBY sounding stuff
very fast paced, can skip AI shots easily
Has Multiplayer, noone playing though
good basic shot assist line, hard to control for trick shots
little challenge games in single player for some variety


– Trick Shot update coming soon? Unknown, steam page says it will be free though.
