The ability to pass one controller around for up to eight players in certain game types makes this a rare, no fuss multiplayer title for groups that enjoy pool. Despite some quirks, this is a very solid game for fans of the billiards pastime.

Unlike other NES games that loathe the player and his mission of actually enjoying a good game, Championship Pool has its cue in the right place. It doesn’t matter that the graphics look like they’re covered by a thick haze of cigar smoke, or that the music is bad, like Michael Jackson. The mechanics and controls work well. What else can a virtual pool enthusiast ask for?
All Game Guide (1998)
Game play is incredibly hard. The layout and the lack of vision really destroy this game. If the playing field was presented on a full screen, there would be no need for the shot previews. The way it is, you must rely on these previews, and they are only accurate about fifty percent of the time. The only option I truly enjoy is the Freestyle Mode. I just line up the cue ball and hit it as hard as I can. Hit or miss, I feel better. If you enjoy pool, take a pass on this game. I understand the Genesis version was much better.
