Editors' Review

With its realistic graphics and attractive interface, 3D Live Pool makes playing pool on the computer just as fun as the real deal.

The game controls are easy to use, with helpful directions in the bottom left of the screen. Gameplay depends heavily on the use of the mouse, which allows users to adjust their view of the table and cue position. The speed of the mouse movement determines the force with which the cue hits the ball, a feature that does a nice job of simulating the real thing. Users can play against the computer or another player, and we found the computer to be a fair adversary. Users of the trial version can choose between three difficulty levels; purchase of the game adds two more. The trial version also limits users to 8-ball and a bonus game; purchase of the full version adds eight more. Players can participate in network play with other users, although the game must be hosted by a player using the full version of the software.

The Help file contains simple instructions for gameplay as well as rules for the various games. Our only major complaint is that the manual opens in Internet Explorer, which can be slow and annoying for users of other browsers. In addition to the limitations on difficulty levels and game types, the trial version of this game is good for only 15 days. The program leaves a folder in the program files upon uninstallation. However, we highly recommend this program for any user looking to pass the time with a game of pool.

"So far for a freebe it's the best I've used."

December 21, 2012  |  By ricksinn1

 |  Version: 3D Live Pool 2.70

Pros

Has a little stick control and cue strike spot

Cons

but can't finesse stick drive on a cue draw back shot. Still hard to get accurate aim after all it is a flat screen.

Summary

One of the best 'pool-lite' I hope I read that part right, where "lite" implies you can play the limited version forever.
If not thank you.

"Pretty good ont great"

December 24, 2009  |  By misterdownloader

 |  Version: 3D Live Pool 2.70

Pros

It haves a 3D environment,Much better than those old looking 2D pool games that were common 10 years ago and still common today.Keys and mouse configuration to aim and add english are very good

Cons

Online play dosn't have it's own server where everyone can join in .You have to host a game and play against a friend .Send your friend isp address and they can join your game.Bumpers are a little dead.

Summary

Not bad but needs improvement

"bad with video cards older than 2005"

December 02, 2009  |  By csalkeld

 |  Version: 3D Live Pool 2.70

Pros

great game, graphics, and user end frendly. BAD features and graphics. Can not be used with vudeo cards older than 2005 editions.

Cons

Many cons, no pros. No matter what setting are used the game does not work with older video cards. I have a ATI 7500 and the game places distortes filled blocks with colors and blocks the images of the table, balls, room, etc.

Summary

Not good with older video cards. My card has NO PROBLEMS with other games, I can see, play fast and be perfect and maybe extraordinary excepcional with other pool games like in http:www.carom3d.com and many more. Good luck .....
