Excerpt: I see your stick is already up. No, seriously. This is how over-the-top cheesy things get with Pocket Pool. Captain Obvious toiled long and hard on the ‘script’, which features such snappy double entendres as the one above.
Conclusion: In the end it comes down to this; Pocket Pool is a substandard, accessory free billiards game accented with sophomoric sexual innuendo and a ridiculous amount of pictures of half naked women.
Summary: Eidos' billiards simulation video game Pocket Pool, developed by Hyper Devbox, features advanced AI, real world physics, 13 scintillating pool games including 9 ball, 8 ball Rotation, Black Jack and Snooker.
Excerpt: You can't find too much fault with any game that features video and still images of beautiful ladies. Considering the expanding demographics of gaming, it may be anachronistic to assume that Pocket Pool will sell on T&A alone.
Excerpt: When I first received Pocket Pool for the PSP I felt as if I should be concealing the game from my wife when I arrived home. You see, the cover graces a stunning brunette bent over making a pool shot with her, shall we say, best assets staring right at you.
Excerpt: One glance at the front cover of the jewel case for Eidos Interactive's latest "Pocket Pool" game featuring a hot babe bent over a pool table with some serious cleavage exposed and you know that nothing short of naughty is going to come from a title like this.
The girls are half naked, and the game is half-assed

Conclusion: There isn't much to get excited about with Pocket Pool. Not even the models and their cheesy videos are likely to scintillate you. The two-player Wi-Fi mode is decent but there's no reason that there couldn't be a pass-the-game-around mode.
