5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent snooker game -- the best there is 29 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase
This is an excellent game. Unlike the botched Blade versions it's stripped away all the motion-capture generated players all attempting to look like the famous players and the irritating John Virgo type commentaries and just concentrated on the game itself, which is done perfectly in my opinion.

So all you get is the table in various locations -- no characters just the appearance of the cue, no rests, spiders and the like. Very simple and very well implemented. The ball physics seems perfect and just the briefest of referee scoring makes this an immersive and extremely enjoyable experience.

The mouse controls are very well done, easy and extremely precise which makes it possible to score well and actually win.

There seems to be automatic computer set-up according to your system spec that worried me at first (I like to adjust all the options manually). However there are some basic settings options. The graphics and sound are all excellent and on the highest settings the game with "AA on" runs very smoothly.

If you've got a decent high speed mult-core CPU, lots of RAM and a high-spec graphics card you'll have no issues.

A great game - the best snooker/pool game on the market so far (and I've played most of them going back many years). Great price and easy download. There's an awful lot of play (many many months) in this game so it's not going to get out-of-date very quickly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 3 Mar. 2014
Fantastic snooker game and probably the best I have ever played on any format over the last 20 odd years. Smooth as butter on highest settings and easy to play. Great!!
Regarding the other reviews... this game is not sluggish in the slightest! And as for the opponent never missing, well yes they do often! The game has well balanced opponents and I have managed to make a maximum break of 108. I really don't know why this game is getting one star reviews...???

4.0 out of 5 stars International Snooker 13 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase
Price is brilliant for this product. Loads of tournaments on season mode, slightly disappointed by the lack of unlockables. Gameplay is absolutely brilliant especially on the high settings, it flows beautifully and even the crowd are fully animated! I would definitely recommend this product to any snooker fans out there, the engine is an improvement on the WSC Real games for sure!

The intrinsic vagueness in the aiming mechanism tied to the inability to improve the player makes this a s*** game. Stick with the flash versions over this they're free and just as annoying.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but let down by not knowing the rules 3 May 2014
By Hominid
Verified Purchase
Can't complain too much given the price, overall pretty good and if the glitches were cleared up it would get a 5.

Rules it doesn't know or doesn't apply:

> No way to nominate colours - if you miss a colour altogether you're always penalised 4
> it sometimes gives 4 point fouls when 5, 6 or 7 should be given
> when down to last 7 colours it doesn't re-spot the one you pot if you foul during the process (e.g. in-off)
> allows you to score more than once when only black left on table - e.g. missing black entirely doesn't end frame
> no way to make opponent continue after they play a foul shot; you can only put them back where they were
> no free movement round the table so you can't see if a ball is pottable other than the one you're aiming at.
