Pool Shark 2 features a cast of characters in their own unique environments who will challenge the gamer in hopes of relieving them of their excessive wealth. There are ten locations to choose from, each one with a different style of table, cloth color, and speed of cushions. The hustling isn't limited to CPU controlled players. Gamers will be able to log on and humble (or be humbled) by fellow human pool sharks out there. Different game modes such as 8-ball, 9-ball, and 10-pin pool are also available.
