Backstreet Billiards came out at about the same time that three or four other billiards/pool games came out. Compared to those games, Backstreet Billiards was about an average game.
The graphics are pretty decent looking, and about as good as you are going to get for a pool game. The gameplay can get a bit confusing if you do not how to use the English of pool and you just go out there and whack a ball at some other balls.
What I like about the game is the challenge. You would not think that there would be too much of a challege for this game, but when you are going out and hustling guys like Minisota Fats, you will have to hit every shot perfect, or else you will be out of some serious money.
A fan of pool games would like this game, but those who are not should just look past this game and go onto games that fit there style better.
