Absolute Games (AG.ru) (Oct 07, 1999)
3D Ultra Cool Pool — игра замечательная по оформлению и легкости восприятия. Все бы хорошо, но от бильярда требуются и другие качества. Недостатки физического плана не позволяют игре на равных противостоять таким признанным авторитетам жанра, как, например, Virtual Pool 2. С другой стороны, игру однозначно можно рекомендовать, как увлекательное развлечение для людей любого возраста и скромной компьютерной подготовки...
Hot Games (1999)
8-ball is a pretty easy game to pick up as it's fairly well known and simple to understand but Chameleon Ball is completely new and only moderately entertaining. Thankfully though the help system is always on hand and you can be putting balls away against the decently challenging computer player in a few minutes. The control system works well, allowing for pixel perfect shots as well as just being able to slam everything on the table with a randomly powerful shot. While this won't give you good enough reason to delete all of your other pool games off your hard drive, 3D Ultra Cool Pool is an entertaining enough diversion from the more mundane renditions of billiards.
Neben Standardpartien (wie 8er und 9er-Ball, Cut Throat oder Rotation) bietet Cool Pool aus Sierras Big-Fun-Reihe auch einige unkonventionelle Pool-Varianten.
Basically, Cool Pool falls well short of delivering the complete package. It's a merely serviceable recreation of billiards. The interesting new tables and game variations just aren't enough when they're accompanied by clunky controls and lame atmosphere. Give this one a pass and check out the much better Expert Pool.

Where Cool Pool becomes interesting is in the special rules matches. One of these is Poker, where each ball represents a card. And Chameleon pool, where tactics are key. Though aimed at all ages, it's doubtful anyone over 11 will find the game entertaining for long.
