Summary: This was the first snooker game i had ever played and i only borowd it off a friend. the gameplay was good especially the dtory mode where you make a character and battle through tournaments with other low ranked players gradually moving up the ranks in aim to get to that no.1 spot. The graphics could be better if codemasters had spent a bit more time on the players' appearances.
Summary: This was the first snooker game i hav eva playd and ive wanted to buy it for ages but neva got round to it but now im going 2 by wcs2003 which is suposd to b evn beta. The gameplay is very good and u can even change the camera to birds-eye view to see if your shot will go in. One problem with this game tho is that it will take quit a while to get bak to the table once u've misd. The players are realistic in the terms that they are better than sum but worse than uvas.
Summary: I'll start with the graphics. It mite jus b my tv bt the pink ball lks orange. And the players lk nuffing like the real ppl. But the gameplay's much beta. The only problem with the gameplay is that the ai is a bit 2 hard and once u've misd a ball, evn tho the cue balls on the cushion and there is no obvious red, you've lost the frame.

Summary: This is a great game for snooker fans. It's easy to play which makes it a game you'll pick up again and again. The graphics are good, apart from the players and referee who all look like they should be appearing in Resident Evil rather than a snooker game, and they all look uncanily the same. Also they move very slowly and they all like to rub their foreheads a lot.
Summary: This game is good! Quite a simple review, but true. Its by far the most realistic snooker/pool sim out. To start with the controls are a bit tricky, but once youve mastered them, you will reap the rewards, when youre on 99 and need the black to make your century, not that easy. World Championship Snooker on the PS1 was a classic, but it got a bit easy and once mastered you couldnt really miss, the ps2 version is much much harder.
Summary: Simply put,if you have any interest in snooker or in relaxing games then this is for you. Broken down, this is the game's good and bad points. GRAPHICS - The weakest aspect of the game. The likes of O'Sullivan, Hendry and co look weedy and unlifelike. But the still screens are good. Simplistic and unspectacular graphics but what do you expect? It's a snookergame not a shoot em up. SOUND - Pretty good.
Summary: The game is great but difficult cos if u get high up the rankings and lose a couple first round matches ur ranking goes back down which makes it exciting also. The bad points is that the players use both hands even if there right handed they use there left aswell whoich isn't realistic or instance mark kings left handed but uses his right altough u will never see him do this in a game but apart from that its a great game
Summary: Dennis Taylor who will bug you if you don't do a shot he suggests, which by the way is impossible (eg. nuge the brown off the cusion which is up the other end lol). And the cusions are made of doe, in other words your ball don't go anywhere after hitting the side. There is 1 more problem, if you make a mistake the computer won't, it will procede to clear the table and you have to watch!
Summary: Brick made cushions, hollow balls and no bounce. Actually the cushions are about as effective as Douglas Barder attempting to win a can can competition. After getting the nit-picking outta the way its an extremely well thought out title with great gameplay (if your not sat in your chair while your opponent makes century break after century break). Well worth the money!!
