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.
I'm surprised that performance still matters to you now that the X1X is around lol (29 minutes ago)
And I'd say that most "normal people" would find that performance at this spec beyond acceptable. (31 minutes ago)
Translation: If DOOM is already running well on hybrid portable (in portable mode) what chance does their next game have of performing even better? I'd say those chances are pretty good, actually. (31 minutes ago)

@MrWhite: if doom is running 560p, with lower res textures and reduced effects at 30fps what chance is there a game on the same engine is going to fair any better? (4 Hours ago)
@Moonwalker: i'm betting the X will be great on your B6 this november :D (5 Hours ago)
@Moonwalker: so, no swapping with the Acer then? (5 Hours ago)
