I am a big fan snooker and pool, and imagine my delight when I seen this game for sale at £10. Every thing about this game is good. Unlike other pool games this game has everything, realism, atmosphere sound and a whole lot more. GRAPHICS For once the graphic you see on the back of the box is the graphic you accurate get and not some fancy advertising gag. The balls physics and the actual look, all make for a impressive setting. The balls are probably the most effect in making this game look real, and the act like a real ball would with actions such speed, rolls, spins. The various cues and rooms are also very detailed which all add to the games look and feel. GAMEPLAY I have this game now for over a year and still play it every week. This game has all the major games of pool from around the world such as nine-ball, 10 ball, six ball English pub all of which allow you to test your wits against the computer or a mate.

I got Virtual Pool 2 a couple of weeks ago and it is one of the greatest pool simulators i have seen and played, although not quite as good as Virtual Pool Hall. The first time i played it i thought this is a quality game. VR sports have done a great job with the graphics and it looks very realistic and like you are there in the pool hall. You can play many types of games from standard english 8 ball to american 9 ball. Also another type of game is Shark Skins were you see how many shots it takes you to pot 3, 6,and 9 balls. This game is quality value and you get great fun and it is very addictive because i can sometimes find myself playing on it for hours. You are given a rank and the higher the better. These rankings help to decide what strength opponent you get when you play in a tournament.It is a great value for money due to it's very high addictiveness rating. I would give Virtual Pool 2 a 9/10 with slight room for improvement such as new games to play instead of just pool.
