The Sims Pool Reviewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Playlist has crafted a new review of The Sims Pool, EA's latest game offering for Apple's fifth generation iPods. The Sims Pool allows players to create their own Sims and play pool in several modes such as 9-ball, 8-ball, or trick shot mode. Playlist gave the game a score of 4.5 out of 5.

From the review:

Most of the game itself takes place over the pool table. The Click Wheel-based interface for The Sims Pool is very intuitive, but it can be a bit challenging to line up just rightóI canít tell you how many times Iíd line up the perfect shot only to see it slip a pixel or four as I moved my finger or thumb off the Click Wheel.

In addition to using the Click Wheel to aim your cue stick, you can use it to confirm spin position (or English) on the ball, to help with tricky shots, and set the power of your strike.

Eight ball, corner pocket The Sims Pool lets you play a very enjoyable and quite realistic game of pool on your fifth-generation iPod.

If you donít want to engage in the lengthy experience of building up your Simsí aspirations and life goals, a Play Pool option exists to get you into the thick of the action straightaway. What happens there wonít affect the rest of the game, so itís a good way to take a break from the more elaborate Sims elements in the game.
