Bought it tonight and have had a quick play at 8 ball and 9 ball - really liking it. Haven't really tried inferno pool! Played one quick game against the AI and didn't really know what i was doing - guess i'll need to read the instructions.

I can see this being a game i lose a lot of time on - have always loved pool games since commodore 64 days onwards and this is the best one i've played yet.:thumbsup:

well i routed around hard in my pocket and brought it:D

i really like it and the online multiplayer give it last ability. If ppl ignore the video of the MUPPETS playing it and try it for themselves

Anyone that get this feel free to add me with a message saying Inferno Pool or AVF :)

sorry for the delay in posting back - don't think you can do 2 player on 1 controller but you've probably worked that out if you bought it - glad you are enjoying it - add me if you like and we can have a match:thumbsup:

The game is a bit scrappy on the rules, not sure how you get 'ranked' and the online lobby seems a little empty and too minimalistic. The game itself is fine, although way to easy even in pro settings.

Anyone having problems inviting friends in this? Been trying for 30mins now.

great fun easy to pick up for £7 it's worth getting

Picked it up in the end and quite good fun.

I'm a bit slow in potting the balls in inferno even against level 1 AI :rolleyes:

Anyone know if I can share this game with my mates - it's something we do the odd times but I can't seem to source if when we all have the game (downloaded from my account) it will work together.

Great game btw, won quite a few 'quick' games ranked and un-ranked.

Inferno mode 'endurance' is madness. All I know is when 'Inferno' mode is activated the balls disappear quicker and don't come back :smashin:

You have to be dead quick lol - I've lasted 5 minutes so earned both the endurance trophies :smashin:

I think the game ranking system is broke. Was on 7-1 won/loss ratio yesterday and this morning it has changed to 6-2. The game I lost at first I thought I potted the wrong colour (then 9 ball) because it was logged as a loss, now i'm not so sure. To be honest I fluked a few games, but that's not really the point is it?

So either there's something wrong with the game or servers or someones altering the scores/cheating!

Been trying tonight with johnnybasement. Invite someone from your friends list. They accept the invite and nothing happens. We've both tried sending and accepting invites. Maybe teething troubles with online play. Hope it gets sorted soon.
If anyone's had any success, could you let us know please?

Yeah mate, that was very frustrating. I played a few games of 8 ball after in the hope it would randomly match us up but obviously it didn't - i did manage to play a few games and even won a few!! Particularly enjoyed beating a charmingly named player "kickurarse2" twice in a row - maybe he needs to change his name to "geturarsekicked":rotfl::D:rotfl:

Hopefully the invite system will be sorted soon. Only other thing i don't like about it is that i have to turn the annoying background music off every time i boot it up - surely it should remember your settings or better still allow for custom soundtracks

Anyone managed to play any ranked games?

Played two player games that weren't ranked but game just hangs when searching for ranking match :confused:

Is it actually hanging or are no players joining you?
I've played quite a few ranked games but usually have to wait ages for someone to join.
Game's not hung on me yet.

Never joins a table, can't remember the message I get.

the physics are great but:

- Why is there only one very annoying music track? I end up turning it off and playing nearly in silence.
- The online mode is far too limited. No chance to set best of so many frames, can't set a time limit which would be useful. Even on veteran the aiming system is far too easy.
- Why does it send me back to the lobby after a game, doesn't give me the option of playing the same player again.
- I am struggling to see the difference between Quick Match and Custom
- Only seems to be one AI player.
- No Choice of venues.

I know this is a cheap PSN game so can't complain too much but the above things, even being so simple would make the game 200% better as the physics and feel of the game are very good.

If they could also add a patch to add a snooker option as it would make a great snooker sim!

Got this on friday and think its great for a quick blast online, its quite satisfying when you make a come back and pot 8 balls in a row after your openent has missed a shot.
