Editors' Review

Billiards for Mac offers a fun gaming experience if you love shooting pool and want a fun way to kill time. No matter which type of billiards you enjoy, whether it be 8-Ball, 9-Ball, or Snooker, this app has something for you. The engaging gameplay will draw you in right away.

With its well-rendered graphics, Billiards for Mac looks quite good. The pool table, itself, has a good design, and you can view it from almost every direction you want -- a feature we really liked. At the bottom, a large mock-up of the cue ball allows you to designate the spin on the ball. To take a shot, you just have to click and drag from the cue ball. While the mouse controls function well, the trackpad does not respond properly to commands, making it practically useless. We liked the game's physics and ball movements, both of which simulate the real game well. On the downside, the music playing in the background is somewhat obtrusive, but you can dismiss it.

As a simulator of the actual sport, Billiards for Mac does a good job, offering many game types. While it's true that it does suffer from some minor control glitches, we think you should still give it a try, provided of course that you have a mouse. If you love pool, you'll love this game.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Billiards for Mac 8.0.
