Einsteiger beißen bei World Championship Pool 2004 wegen der knüppelharten KI-Konkurrenten garantiert mehr als einmal frustriert in die Maus. Billardprofis freuen sich hingegen über die starken Gegner und die nachvollziehbare Kugelphysik.

Mit World Championship Pool 2004 hat BigBen einen spaßigen Titel nach Deutschland geholt. Wer noch kein Billiard-Spiel auf dem PC hat und auch gegen ein Onlinematch nichts einzuwenden hat, der wird hier glücklich. Die Figuren sind in unseren Augen allerdings nicht sonderlich gut gelungen, hier könnte man in Zukunft noch mehr Feinarbeit investieren. Was aber auf dem Tisch abgeht, gibt keinen Grund zur Beanstandung. Selbst die Kreide auf den Queues hinterlässt bei einem Match ihre Spuren auf dem Tisch.

When you put the sum of World Championship Pool 2004's parts together, you'll find yourself with one of the better billiards outings released for consoles in quite a long time. Yes, there are things to complain about, such as the decidedly lackluster sound quality and the lack of online gameplay modes, but outside of these complaints, the game performs very well and provides you with enough variations on the game of pool to keep you entertained for quite a while. If you're a pool enthusiast with an Xbox, you shouldn't hesitate to give World Championship Pool 2004 a look.

In World Championship Pool 2004 treten Sie gegen die 70 besten Queue-Profis der Welt an. Kennen Sie Earl Strickland? Oder vielleicht Efren Ryes? Vermutlich nicht. Dabei sind beide absolute Superstars - aber leider nur in der Billard-Szene. Gegen diese beiden und 68 weitere Kollegen dürfen Sie bei World Championship Pool 2004 in sieben Spielvarianten (unter anderem 8-Ball, 9-Ball, Hustle oder Snooker) nach Herzenslust einlochen. Sahnestück des Spiels ist der spaßige Karriere-Modus, bei dem Sie in 20 offiziellen Turnieren um die Weltmeisterschaft spielen.

WCP is a pool simulation for pool players. If you don’t like the game of pool, there’s no way you’ll like the game. WCP won’t be an adequate substitute for the real thing, but it does suffice when you can’t make it to a table. Highly recommended for pool fiends, but casual gamers just won’t get it.

Très pointu et complet, WC Pool 2004 devrait ravir les amateurs du genre. Tous les ingrédients sont là : moteur physique qui poutre, customisation du joueur, mode Carrière, Trick Shots, etc. Pour ceux que le billard laisse de marbre, rien à signaler : ça ne leur chatouillera pas l'adrénaline plus de quelques heures.

Un titre aux qualités multiples en matière de gameplay mais à la réalisation un peu tristounette. Ce qui reste le plus regrettable dans l'affaire étant la forte ressemblance avec World Championship Snooker 2003. Le mode online étant assez peu exploité, on se demande pourquoi investir.

While there's nothing markedly different between the Xbox and PC versions of World Championship Pool 2004, it's impossible to deny the fact that the game just doesn't measure up as well on the PC. PC owners have so many different pool games to choose from at this point that, really, nothing WCP 2004 does helps it to stand out from the pack. This is not to say that it's a bad game, though. So if you're looking for another pool game to add to your collection, WCP is worth checking out.

In the end, what really determines if you’d be interested in this game or not is whether you have a passion for billiards. Hardcore pool players should be pleased with this simulation and ability to compete with online opponents, but for the casual player, World Championship Pool 2004 seems to lack the excitement that attracts today’s gamers. It does offer an interesting diversion for a rental, but by the end of the weekend, the novelty will have worn thin. If the thought of freshly brushed green felt and tiny clouds of blue chalk dust don’t stir your emotions, then look elsewhere for gaming satisfaction.

Pool fans, this is your baby. and your only option on the Xbox. Casual fans will find some enjoyment, but it will wear off sooner than later. World Championship Pool focuses and accomplishes excellent gameplay and a wide selection of modes. That's the good, the bad is the outside coating which is no pretty duck.

En attendant de voir ce que donnera un Pool Paradise des plus estivaux, World Championship Pool 2004 est une alternative assez moyenne à un World Championship Snooker, et ce même si nous trouvons beaucoup de similitudes entre les deux jeux puisque provenant des mêmes studios. Le soft est néanmoins maniable et constitue une expérience aussi bien pour le joueur qui désire découvrir cet univers que pour les professionnels qui voudront opter pour un petit entraînement virtuel via le Online.

If you like pool buy World Championship Pool 2004, but if not don’t waste your money. Even with Xbox Live the game is not that good. The game physics and shot controls are done very well but that is about it. With no sound effects or soundtrack to speak of I cannot recommend this game.
