it's just good.

This snooker simulater is done pretty well, the graphics are done really well, specially for a game like this. The tournaments are done well. If you start playing you can also try a practice mode. The sound is done well, but that doesn't really matter in a game like this. The game also is cheap.

Decent snooker sim

greysquaill | April 22, 2013 | See all greysquaill's reviews »

Captures the technical nuances of snooker such as spins etc. Somehow the actual way the balls move around look a bit unnatural though. Still a decent enough and good for playing as the World Championships are on at the moment.

Play like a pro

DukePaul | Jan. 17, 2013 | See all DukePaul's reviews »

Finally we have a Snooker videogame with good physics for the balls, most Snooker games offer an unrealistic touch but this one feels very sensitive and accurate.

Also the game offers a career mode to play this for hours if you want to win all the trophies over all the venues, also it has option to quick matches if you want instant action.

if you were disappointed with other Snooker games, you will be very happy with this one.

A good game

This snooker simulator is really good. You can choose among different modes, on both single and multiplayer. There are a lot of tournaments, a practice mode to learn the basic and all you can ask for a simulator like this.
