I'm not sure how are things now but I remember that snooker was pretty popular few years ago. I remember when everytime when I got back to home I played it in some online flash games website - there were plenty of players and it was fun! So, how is International Snooker? It's a good game, at least for every snooker fan. Playing the whole championship takes many hours to complete, you can change how your cue looks like or the place where are you playing at. The only thing that can be complainted at are physics - it's not very realistic. Still, there aren't many snooker or pool games on Steam, so if you really want to play one that is good, even with not so great physics, International Snooker is good choice.
