Virtual Pool is a great game and must-have for pool enthusiasts. Its physics and perspective are so realistic that MacPlay actually offers a money-back guarantee if your real-world game does not improve as a result of your virtual-world one.
Game Revolution (Jun 05, 2004)
One claim Virtual Pool does make on the box is that it can improve your real-world pool game or your money back. That's a pretty hefty claim to make, but just by watching the videos and using the ball tracking, I've managed to understand the game a little more. Not that anybody will be able to buy Virtual Pool and go out hustling like Fast Eddie Felson or Minnesota Fats, but Virtual Pool is a lot like an instructional video and then some. Cue it up and give it a virtual whirl.

Sans remplacer un véritable billard, Virtual Pool vaut surtout pour son aspect très réaliste et son côté entraînement. Une excellente simulation, que tout amateur de billard se doit de posséder.
