REVIEW: Pool Nation for PlayStation 4

Review by Jon Donnis
I was playing Jimmy White's 'Whirlwind' Snooker back on the Amiga in the early 90's, and since then I have been a fan of Snooker and Pool games. And there has been countless games over the years, some good, some ok, and some truly awful. So where does Pool Nation fit in this?

Well for a start there are just a few things you need to get right to make a good game.
1. Game Physics - Do the balls move as you would expect them to on a real table.
2. Graphics - Especially in 2019, anything less than near photo realism is a failure.
2. Game Modes - Other than the main game, what else is there to do?

Well I am happy to say that Pool Nation ticks all three boxes. It looks great, it plays great, and there is lots to do.

Although this is a "pool" game you can also play snooker. This is a nice addition, but it wont be the reason you buy this game, but the fact it is there very good news.

You can play online or offline as you would expect, everything is very slick, the presentation and so on. Live online matches play perfectly, there are leagues to enter, cups, the usual options.

There are some issues with Trophies, not sure what that's all about, but I don't really care about collecting trophies, so I am not at all bothered about this. And I am sure it will get fixed as new updates are released.

There is a Trick Shot mode coming soon as DLC, which I am looking forward to.

Overall this is a very good Pool game, you can play US or UK pool, snooker included, what more could you ask for.

I give this game a solid 8/10

Out now digitally on the PlayStation Store.  Physical releaseAugust 30th! 
Pool Nation will launch with an SRP of £15.99 / €19.99 / $19.99.
