Pure Pool (PS4) Review | Laser Lemming

LL Writes "Pure Pool is one of the most realistic looking games of digital spots and stripes, sorry 8-ball, I’ve ever played.

It looks superb, nigh on photo realistic. From the reflection of the surroundings on the balls and the veneer of the wood on the table, down to the texture of the felt that looks like you could get carpet burn from it. If you need a game to show off the graphical capabilities of your snazzy new PS4 to non-gamers, this is it. “Would you look at those balls,” you say. “Look how shiny they are. Look at how subtle the lighting is, how fuzzy the felt looks on the table, how the superb physics engine makes the cue ball glide around the table just as it would in the real world. Just look at those balls! That’s the power of the PS4 right there, perfect billiard balls. Look at ‘em!!!!”

Then they’ll probably leave because you’ve started ranting about how realistic pool balls look in a video game, you’re obviously having one of your episodes again and there’s no talking to you when you get like this. Nevertheless, the fact remains; Pure Pool is hands down one of the best-looking games on the PS4." (PC, PS4, Pure Pool) 4/5

It is indeed a great game, I found the HUD annoying though, however the Developer are releasing a patch that enables you to switch it off for ultimate immersion! They also said they're considering Pure Snooker which would be brilliant!

no birds eye view is annoying.
