Excerpt: Ultimate 8 Ball ’s graphics are sparse, but they get the job done. The balls look suitably round for polygonal objects, and the character models are rather detailed. Overall, the graphics are pretty basic, but they’re perfectly playable. The menus are a highlight -- very well done, with a nifty fade effect, they are clean and crisp, with a tight presentation. The sound effects in this game are good as well, with realistic sounding bounces and cracks and such.
