We received a code for Pure Pool a little while ago but we had a few minor problems so it took us a bit longer than expected to cover the PS4 version of the game. Follow us inside and check out our HQ gameplay videos.
What we think
Pure Pool features a certain number of game modes, from the classic Eight-Ball and Nine-Ball modes to the more original Killer mode (in which each pool ball you miss costs you one point, the game ending when a player reaches zero). There are also multiple challenges to choose from but the content is mostly realistic, which means it's true to the reality of the sport. Here your line of sight is limited to what you can actually see when actually playing pool. You can move around the table to find the best angle but there are no TV-like camera angles to see the action from above. Although it might not look like a very fun game at first glance, the possibility to customize the table and the presence of some kind of a trophy system make it quite addictive to play. Certain criteria are required to win the in-game trophies, like for example sinking three balls in a row or managing to sink one from a distance. In the end, if pool is one of your passions, there is enough content here to keep you busy, the good news being that, if you're not into multiplayer AI can be quite challenging.

@Megido: errr... no. it has long cutscenes, yes, but there is a lot of meat to the game compared to say, MGS:TEA where you beat the game in less than 10 hours and there still is a lot of cutscenes. (5 Hours ago)
