Biliardo 2 is a great simulation of various billiard games played in Italy. The available games are: 5 Pins, Goriziana, Bowls, Carom (normal, 1 cushion and 3 cushion) and 3 Balls. The game includes complete rules for each of the games, as well as a great on-line manual.

The best thing about Biliardo 2 is the fact that it's truly a *simulation* of the sport and not an action-oriented game like most other pool titles. This means you don't need any reflexes at all to make good shots: you can perform any kind of shot - even parabolic ones - from any angle or strength. The interface is extremely intuitive: just use the mouse to set up your shot, and the game will automatically suggest the probable path of the ball. Thanks to realistic physics, you won't know for sure how your shot will turn out until you try it.

In addition to excellent physics and no-reflexes-necessary gameplay, Biliardo 2 includes plenty of other features to make the game even better. You can choose between two themes: a "professional" billiards table, or a pub table - complete with cigarette stains. You can even adjust the temperature of the table and observe the impact on your shots. Other options include the ability to replay or undo shots, and to view comprehensive statistics at the end of each game. If you don't know how to play pool or billiards, you can use the excellent training mode to practice to your heart's content. Overall, Biliardo 2 is a very polished, very well-designed billiards game that has so many features it's amazing it's a freeware title. If you enjoy billiards, pool or snooker, you will love this outstanding gem. Two thumbs up, way up!
