Game Review ( Bankshot Billiards 2 - 360 Arcade )

After months of contemplating on whether or not to get this game, I finally did as the price dropped to 800 MSP.

Graphics: 3.75/5 Kept really simple. Everything looks great, but the fact that every game you play is on the same table is a little depressing.

Sound: 3.5/5 Average background music that occasionally drops out, like Uno. The balls hitting eachother sound great, of course.

Control: 4.5/5 Really very simple. It's basically Yahoo! Pool for your 360. You can turn on aim-assist or off - whatever you please.

Fun: 4/5 Bankshot Billiards is not nearly as bad as people make it seem. It's a lot of fun. Although I haven't even seen a game online, it's still a good single player game, and local multiplayer game. There are several modes, too. Including the traditional 8-Ball, 9-Ball, 14.1 Continuous, Golf, and even Trick Shots. If you like virtual pool games, this is well worth $10. It's not very deep, not many people play it on Live, and the leaderboards are completely messed up, but the game is a good time killer.
