"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 .....

"Great if you like losing!"

May 30, 2009  |  By hcreekside

 |  Version: 3D Live Pool 2.63

Pros

The graphics are great and the sounds realistic.

Cons

Playing it, I felt like I was being hustled. Miss the ball once and then the computer takes over and often sinks all the remaining balls rarely giving me a 2nd chance.

Summary

It's great if you like having high blood pressure. I've played other pool games and while I'm not great at it, I'm not as bad as with this one. I need to play about 30 games before the computer will let me win one. It's addictive because of the graphics but I often feel as if the computer is programmed to cheat. It didn't matter how soft I hit the balls, my ball would often bounce off the edge or just sit on the edge and go in, that hardly ever happens when the computer shoots. It was as if every other shot I took was either a foul or a scratch, something the computer doesn't do. I've got it set at the basic level but I feel like I'm playing against a pro. Not everyone is a professional, if I was then I'd be in a real pool hall instead of playing this at home. Basic to me should be for everyone's enjoyment. I'm looking for a new pool game, the graphics too me aren't worth the frustration I feel everytime I try to play this game. I've had this game for a number of months and I really tried to win and really tried not to get upset but it's not possible, I now understand why people get so fed up they want to throw their computer out the window. I didn't but I've been tempted. It basically boils down to what you like, if you don't mind not winning then go for it, if you like a challenge and can handle not winning, again, go for it. If you really like to win once in a while, don't. I know, it's a computer game, if you want to win play the game for real, not against a computer. Like I said, for me it's supposed to be just a fun family game. So far, no one in my family likes it and it really is only because you have such a small chance of ever winning. Other than that, it's fun and the graphics are spectacular, but I want to occassionally win, especially when I'm trying my best. And if I choose basic level then I expect to play against a mediocre player, not a pool hustler.
