Excerpt: "...pleasantly shocked when I bought World Championship Snooker 2002 for the PS2. I had found a game, which was easy to play, fun, and looked good. I then heard about World Championship Snooker 2003. At first I thought they had only improved the graphics, so I was a bit reluctant to go out and spend up to £40 for it. At that time I was content with playing on the predecessor. I then found a copy of World Championship Snooker 2003 in a second hand shop ...
Pros: Realistic and addictive gaming, lots of the top players
Cons: Opponents sometimes do impossible shots; commentary can be a bit repetitive
Excerpt: "...and arenas like the embassy world championships at the crucible and the UK championships at the Preston Guild Hall. Unfortunatly there are only 16 REAL top players in there, byut there are players including; Ronnie O'Sullivan, Ken Doherty, Peter Ebdon, Mark Williams, John higgins and Stephen Hendry, among more. In carrer mode you will battle it out against these, and fake players to earn prize momney from proceeding in championships and then ...
Summary: What a game! Beats all other snooker games by far. Shame About the look ofsome players (Peter Ebdon). I'm reletivly new to the PS2 but the graphicsare mint and arenas (crucible theatre)look the same as in real life. Badlook that this sight takes a long time to send the game. It keeps ondelaying as it is out of stock.
Excerpt: "I think the only let down with this game is the length of time it takes to play. You may as well go to the local snooker hall and pay £1 for an hour. The graphics are good, sound good (if you like listening to Dennis Taylor!!) The guides are good, controls very easy to get used to and can be addictive for a while but my advise is to not miss a shot because your opponent will usually clear the table. You can play other games too such as 8 ball and ...
Summary: When I got this game I couldn't stop playing with it and my friend can't get enough of it. With high class players and beginners aiming you just have to buy it. Trick shot, coaching, Pool and even fun games are included in this game or you can test yourself out against other players in career mode and see what the highest ranking you can get.
Excerpt: "I have quite a lot of sports type games for my PS2 this has to rank as awesome as a multiplayer but poor for the single player! Sure the game has good in game modes such as create a player, it’s hard not to like creating a player that’s look like you and trying to beat the like of the Rocket Ronny and Stephen Hendry at their own game. The different game modes are a breath of fresh air, unique coaching sessions, practice modes and lets not forget ...
Summary: When i first picked up my mates version of the game on the x-box i was apprehensive to say the least. however after about 5 minutes i was hooked. the graphics supporyt the game well and the ball physics are excellent. the good thing is you dont even have to be a fan of the sport to have fun. i do agree with some people that the AI is often too difficult but i just view it as a challenge. this game has an infinite life span and is well worth getting.
Summary: Being a keen snooker fan myself I was excited to see this game was being released. I had played the previous titles and enjoyed them a lot, and this promised to be an improvement. I was not let down. I wont go on too much about the mini-games as I never play them, but the 8-ball and 9-ball pool options are welcome additions.
Summary: I was really excited when I heard that World Championship Snooker 2003 was going to be released, but when it arrived I was very disappointed. The graphics are... well... average - balls look like balls but the players look like characters from the Adams Family. I'm not sure whether other gamers will agree with me or not but I think the career mode is way too difficult. The AI (artificial inteligence) characters are: too good and too lucky.
