Once again Gremlin has produced a superb title - the gameplay has been made more user-friendly, while the transfer system has been improved to make it more realistic.

Pool Shark HHH

PlayStation With the Mosconi Cup not long passed, pool has become a really popular sport in recent times. To mark this sudden rise of interest, Gremlin have released Pool Shark, the first pool game on the PlayStation. This is one of the most accurate cue-sport computer games yet. The tutorials can help if you are having trouble, or for the more expert player there are tournament options. The graphics are superb, but the gameplay is repetitive. Although Pool Shark is a realistic game, it is best suited to lovers of cue sports.
