"Hard to play"

It's very hard to adjust the table angle, and it's annoying that the game suggests I would be looking at the table in such many positions! :) The User Interface overall is terrible and pitifying!
Please take a look at how it should be done - find a copy of Celeris` Virtual Pool for MacOS 8 or 9 (warning - it crashes under 9 when Quitting).
They have the UI and everything - the best of class in any pool game on Earth on any systems - and believe me I've seen many pool games since 1987!

OMG if only Celeris ported their wonderful Virtual Pool under Tiger...I'd give my $33.

"Needs a lot of work"

This game is nowhere near as good a Virtual Pool 1 was in 1997. First, the physics are way off. The balls accelerate after hitting the rails and after hitting other balls. There is no provision to adjust the amount of english (spin) on the cue ball. There is no way to change the viewing angle of the table/cue. There is only one choice of games. I don't even know what this game is. The balls are racked in numerical order, with neither the 8 nor the 15 in the center. So it is not 8-ball or rotation. It is not straight pool because the players don't get credit for pocketing any balls. Also, there is no "cheating line" aiming help.

"At first...."

...I was glad to finally see a Pool game for the Mac (and in OS X!). After I installed it, I was reminded of Space Invaders. The balls float rather than roll, the sound effects are poor, the pockets are HUGE and it would be nice if there was a line of sight on the ball (such as in Pool on Yahoo games). On the positive side, it is OS X, it is very simple and can be fun with some upgrading. A good start, but I am certainly glad its free.
