- US Producer Aaron Orsak
has introduced Hustle Kings for PS3 today which is coming to Sony's PlayStation Network this winter.
To quote: Hustle Kings is without a doubt the most realistic and, frankly, impressive billiards game I‚‚ā¨ôve ever played. As an avid pool player myself, from 8-ball leagues to smoky snooker halls in the UK, I‚‚ā¨ôve just gotten used to billiard video games always ‚‚ā¨úmissing something‚‚ā¨Ě... that ‚‚ā¨úsomething‚‚ā¨Ě is hard to quantify.
But I can honestly say that Hustle Kings gets it completely right! I wasn‚‚ā¨ôt yet assigned to the project when a couple of my colleagues and I got our hands on it here around the office. I was initially quite skeptical given my history of video billiard disappointments, thinking it was going to be just another pool game, but after hitting a few shots I was sold.
The amount of ball control is simply astounding, giving the player any and every shot option in the book‚‚ā¨¶from masse shots to subtle swerves and tricky English, you can do anything to the cue ball in Hustle Kings that you can do around a real table.
So the realism was there, but how would the game fare for a more casual gamer? Turns out everyone around the office, from the hardcore to the weekend warrior, to people I‚‚ā¨ôve rarely seen play games, found something to absolutely love about Hustle Kings.
I‚‚ā¨ôll save elaboration on all the game modes and technical ins and outs now. I can assure you there‚‚ā¨ôs A TON of stuff in Hustle Kings that we‚‚ā¨ôll be announcing in the next few months.
