The Game Cube iteration was originally intended for release alongside its PlayStation 2 and PC counterparts. However, this minor slippage is the result of some last-minute fine-tuning to ensure that the Cube version truly shines. You'll swear you're actually there on the beach playing pool (and more).
Players can enjoy the super-realistic physics and intuitive control system, across 12 different varieties of pool, on realistic or stunt tables if they desire. A cavalcade of unlockables ensure that playing pool never tires, and if it did, well, beachside potters can try their hand at the various sub-games including Darts, Skee Pool or the arcade classic Dropzone, which are hidden throughout the island.
"Although we had promised this version a little earlier, we're sure that the time taken to finely hone our product will be appreciated by all who play it," says Peter Rollinson, Product Manager, Ignition Entertainment. "We're grateful for the patience shown by those waiting for the Game Cube version and can promise them they will not be disappointed."
Archer Maclean's Pool Paradise will be released on Game Cube on 7th May 2004, priced £19.99.
