Description of Sharkey's 3D Pool

Sharkey's 3D Pool is an excellent pool game that introduces 3D perspective long before Celeris' Virtual Pool. The game is fast, easy to learn, and a lot of fun. You can play against the computers with different skills (including tournaments), another human player, or see if you can replicate trick shots performed by real pros. Traditional top-down view is available in addition to the very attractive 3D view that lets you view the action from any angle.

The game offers two types of standard pool games: 8-ball and 9-ball, either of which can be played in a standard "ladder"-style tournament in which you compete for money prizes. The only thing that is missing from the game is the appearance of the cue stick itself-- you only see an outline of it on the screen, since you must select the point of the ball to hit, direction, force, and spin from the top menu bar.

In many ways, Celeris' Virtual Pool is a logical evolution of Sharkey's 3D Pool -- but this predecessor already packs more than enough punch to keep pool fans entertained for hours. I found the trick shots section especially fun, and challenging. Definitely a breakthrough as far as pool games go, and a must-have for fans of the sport. Two thumbs up!

Played it so many times back then, without ever understanding the rules! :D
