Nice review, dr_st!

I played a bit of this back in the day. It was also the one and only game I ever played with someone over modem!
The mechanics were really great for the time. Every other pool game I had played before this felt stodgy, unnatural and restrictive.
The way the mouse is used in Virtual Pool, though, seemed so natural and obvious. I also loved being able to activate the predictive lines.
I’m not much of one for this type of game in general, but this one was lots of fun to just muck about in.

Incidentally, there’s a really fun bug when playing rotation. If you play against the computer and you both score exactly 60, there are no more balls on the table but no winner, and the AI totally freaks out!
