Reception[edit]

The game received poor to middling reviews. N-Europe gave the game a 2/10 score, slamming it as "badly done shovelware" which felt like a quick cash-in on the Wii's success and control scheme.[1] Gamespot gave a 5 out of 10 (mediocre) score, saying "twitchy controls and poor presentation eclipse what little fun there is to be had with this middling billiards game."[2] The review aggregator Metacritic scored the game at 32 out of 100 based on 13 industry reviews, generally unfavorable score.[3]
