I really dig the underground/punk aesthetic Inferno Pool sports, but I wish it had made its way into more of the game. When you start up the game, you'll think "I must be in for a real treat." Don't get me wrong: Inferno Pool is a good-looking game. It just doesn't live up to its first impression after you actually start playing. Regardless of what or how you play, you'll see the same industrial environment (which basically looks like a garage or basement that someone just moved into). Maybe I'm being unfair -- all you really need to look at are the pool tables and what is happening on them. Fortunately, all of that looks good; the ball physics in particular feel accurate and natural.
Occasionally, when I'm playing Inferno Pool, I have the feeling I am playing a game from the Mortal Kombat series. That's because a very familiar voice with a deep bass distortion narrates all of the action. I've confused the gutturally delivered "Bank shot!" for "Headshot!" long after I knew what he was really saying. The voice is delivered with a tongue-in-cheek sense of humor; it's always nice to see games that don't take themselves too seriously. The other sounds get the job done, but really -- how long can I go on about the clacks of pool balls?
