Is this game Awful.
I was really looking forward to a pool game, thats all my one friend wants to play on a wii, and the one that came with wii play was pretty bad, I thought.

You would think a dedicated game would be better but it isn't. The graphics are terrible, yes there is flicker and for what, I know there are some physics involved, but graphically this has got to be one of the simplest games you could make.

OK fine, If the gameplay/controls were good, I wouldn't mind, but they are awful.

You cant really move your view around to see what you want. You cant really put any amount of spin on the ball, without making it curve (for example getting a spin of the rail, but shooting straight at the rail).

Its difficult to control power, and who knows what the levels mean.

Actually letting a shot go feels like dookie (you wouldn't believe what they censor here).

Lining up shots is to fast, and quantized, I feel like i cant adjust in small enough increments.

Long story short, this game sucks, its not worth a rent, and they know it sucks thats why its so cheap. I pity anyone who actually bought this game.

Pool Party is a fun game. If your in a Pool hall 2 to 3 times a month. you should rent this one for you and your Buddy's. but if your looking for a fun game to play with your family. this one might not be the one for you. you have so many options to add to the game but not the ones you want. you get different pool cues, ball, places to play, tables to play on, music. but people are looking for is to play there MP3's off a SD card.
play with 4 players people in some games not all the games but some. they have meny game to play snookers full and short, 9 ball, 8 ball, killer and they keep going on. you have a choice of 13 one player game and 10 2 player game. so you have a nice change of pace. but for me the game fall a little short. the game flickers in the game like you don't have a fast enough video card. and the music is better that midi music but not up to night club live music. I would love to drop some MP3's on a SD card and watch the game pick that up. but its not in the game. and you don't see your character just a head of who you are. the pool cue is play like a ghost is shooting that you can't see. the graphics are OK not great. they are not going to win any awards but that were not shooting for that. just a fun game to play with (one)a Friend.

Pros:its fun. you have many game to play. easy to pick up. its cheep for a Wii game.

Cons: graphic Flicker, Can't play your MP3's. The game play is arcadish. can't play 4 players or Wifi with a buddy. music could be better.

All in all: Its a fun game for what it is. If you love pool get two of those Wii pool sticks and have fun. but if you just looking for a fun game with your family this one might not be for you.

I would like to have seen better realism in the setting of shot prep, I.E. the cue stick moving to set the power.
