Do you play this on PC?
Think I like to give this a try, does it have one pocket or bank pool?
$30! I'm way too cheap for that.
A great one with realistic physics is pool break. You can get it on your phone or tablet. I've played most of the VP games and it is very closeI think there is a 4-ball demo version that's free so you can see if you want to spend the big bucks.
VP is the most accurate pool (and billiards and snooker) simulator I know of -- it can actually help you understand real shots on real tables.
You can probably find one of the earlier versions (on CD) for $5 or so but they don't allow you to compete on-line.
Do any of these games come equipped with the famous "Ram Shot"?
I've been playing Hustle Kings on PS4 some for the past few days and I like it pretty well.
I grew up on Virtual Pool for PS1 though.
