Summary: had this game a few years ago and enjoyed it then so decided to buy it for my psp as im always out and about. love the gameplay on it cant really fault the game or the other modes on it.good game to play with mates too
Excerpt: I have always been a snooker lover as i used to watch it with my grandparents all the time as a child and as I tell my Mrs I go to the pub to play snooker not get drunk with my friends. Remember that one fellas!LOL What SONY have managed to do is make a PSP title run and feel like your playing it on your PS2. The graphics for such a tiny console are phenomenal and this is one of the PSP's earliest titles.
Pros: an excellent example of the PSP's Capabilities
Excerpt: World Snooker Challenge 2005 (WSC 2005) is yet another version of Sega's snooker title, this time it's the PSP that gets pot lucky, but will you? We grab a cue and find out. Menu systems are a funny thing, and to be honest, it's not something that we normally pay attention to. 'Start up the game and get playing' is our motto here at Pocket-lint, so we find ourselves surprised at the fact we are talking about the World Snooker Challenge menu system with you.
Excerpt: World Snooker Championship 2005 offers gamers the ultimate simulation of the beloved game. As you might expect, this game has all the big names, but this time there's simply a lot more than any snooker game gone before. More features, options, game modes and faces to make this the ultimate must have snooker title for any serious fan.
Summary: I just bought this and it is a real good game, graphics are nice and how the balls move is very accurate. I see alot of people wrote it is hard to pot the balls, I don't agree with that, I guess its how good your phisics are, and your snooker. Games don't take long at all, it all depends though. Someone said one of the flaws was the loading time between shots, obviously he didn't read the manual as you can skip AI shots, or speed up by holding the shift button.
Excerpt: Is this really a PSP game? Wow they have managed to cram in what looks like a PS2 game into my favourite handheld console. A faithful recreation of snooker with the majority of the current crop of players plus commentary from John Virgo. Locations have been accurately modelled plus there are bonus games of pool, bar billiards or if you want a quick fix there is trick shot as well. This game also takes advantage of the PSP sleep mode and will remember where you left off.
Summary: This game is astonishingly good, the gameplay, the graphics and even the sound and commentary. If you like this type of game then buy it you will enjoy and it has a long life. The only flaw which prevents me from giving it five stars is the loading times between shots, it is a very slow game and certainly the slowest I have discovered on the PSP.
Summary: I THINK THIS GAME IS BRILLIANT, THERE IS SO MUCH TO DO AND THE COMMENTERY IS EXELLANT. YOU CAN PLAY POOL BILLIARDS SNOOKER AND LOADS MORE. THE ANALOGUE CONTROL IS GOOD AND IS EASY TO USE, I THINK THAT WORLD SNOOKER CHALLENGE IS 1 OF THE BEST SNOOKER GAMES AROUND
Summary: I would never have thought that a portable version of Snooker would be this good! Graphics: 9/10 The graphics cannot really get any better for a snooker game, well not until perhaps the next generation of consoles churn some out. The players animations as they take a shot are spot on and they also have facial expressions. This is no Ridge Racer, but nevertheless the graphics perfectly complement the illusion of really playing snooker.
Summary: Just got the game yesterday and I love it! I've had my PSP since April ( got it on import ) and I have 3 other games including this one. Only Wipeout Pure has had me picking up the PSP as much as World Championship Snooker. The controls in the game are very intuitive.Whether you choose the analog "sweep" to gauge the power of the shot, or alternatively, use a power meter, once a bit of practice has been put in, snooker becomes a much more enjoyable virtual sport than it...
