Okay, so my first thought was "this game is awesome!" Alright, something else. I don't know much about pool, but I know enough to know that the game is cheating a little. How do i know? well, i know that if you get the black ball into a pocket before all the other balls are in the pockets, you lose. But the computer got the black ball in the pocket and at least 5 balls were remaining, yet the computer won. (The computer's name is player 2, so that's what we'll call it) Another thing. I know that if you shoot a ball into a pocket, you get an extra turn well it seems as if every time i get a ball in a pocket, I don't get another turn. Yet when player 2 gets a ball into a pocket, it gets at least 3 extra turns. i don't get it. Would I recommend this game? Maybe. Is this game fun and addictive, besides all the cheating? Absoloutly. Am i going to keep this game? Yes, or at least until the cheating gets annoying. Thanks for reading my review. (Oh, one last thing: I wish there was a "help" button to this game, because i had to look up how to play pool on the internet in order to win the game.)
NOTHING WORSE THAN A COMPUTER CHEATING
At first this was a good game and then after I got good at it and played enough games that I won, the computer cheats to win. It will steal the solids I am shooting just so it could win the game. The more I win the more it cheats! The shots that would go into the side pockets don’t line up for us but it does for the computer. There were shots the computer made into the side pocket that in no way possible would anyone be able to make a shot like that. Another thing it does is use the 8 ball or one of my balls to shoot the computer’s ball into the pocket. THAT IS CHEATING AND THE COMPUTER CHEATS AS MUCH AS IT CAN BECAUSE THE COMPUTER PROGRAMMER IN HIS/HER WARPED SENSE OF COMPETITION SEEMS TO THINK THAT IS THE ONLY WAY TO GIVE AN APPONENT COMPETITION, SO THE PROGRAMMER BUILT IN A CHEATING MECHANISM INTO THE SOFTWARE TO CHEAT US OUT OF WINNING.
You know what I love this game, but I’ve played it too much to notice some flaws that I would love to point out. Firstly, there should be a level of toughness option, because the AI is just not programmed to win or be competitive. If you do a couple of bad shots, the AI just starts to play really bad, hitting stupid shots and stuff. Try scoring all the shots for the AI and it will start play really bad. And I noticed when the AI has a chance to win sometimes, they just blow it, doing something stupid. Please put a hardness setting to it, would love to play a tougher opponent. but overall this game is great to pass time, thanks for making it!
