2.0 out of 5 stars In off the black 27 April 2009
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Normal
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Why, oh why, oh why do programmers forget the most important part
of developing a game.....they have to play test it as well.
Now I don't know whether they are all used to the noisy
atmosphere in the pool halls in the U.S.A. but good old
snooker in the U.K. does like a quiet atmosphere for
the concentration of the players. Only once in 10 loadings
of the game did the crowd hush into an authentic quietness.
The rest of the time was as though it was the session interval
as all of them were making so much noise that it really
made me just eject the game from the console.
The game itself is really very good.
Oh.......apart from the fact that when
the ref declared a 'touching ball'
and I played away from it, he said 'FOUL AND A MISS'
Oh.......and the time that when
I broke off at the beginning
of the frame, the ball went around 3 cussions
and landed beautifully
on the rail deep in the baulk end, and...yes,
that voice again said 'FOUL AND A MISS'.
Commentary from such legends as Steve Davis
and the legendary John Virgo John Parrott,
but they are so good on the telly, why do they
read it like a script?
I just got to the point that I turned them off
in the options.
As snooker goes it really is good, but too many
foul strokes makes this fall short of the
last instalment. Maybe the next one will
tweak it back to the high standard that
this one should have been.
Slapped wrists you programmers and play testers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easily the best yet 6 May 2009
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Normal
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is by far the best version of the long running snooker series to date. Graphics are superb- so realistic it's almost like watching it on T.V. the difficulty of the game has been tweaked so while it's still very challenging, now you are given a chance when you play someone in the top 16 as they no longer pot everything in sight and they don't go for unrealistic potting attempts, prefering to play safe as they would in the real thing. The only reason why I can't give this five stars is because there is still no option to set up knockout tournaments online.We still have to make do with leaderboards. this could have and should have been addressed by now. Don't let this put you off though as other than that this is perfection.

3.0 out of 5 stars If it wasn`t for those damn glitches... 9 Jun. 2010
By Little Cat Voom TOP 500 REVIEWER
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Normal
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
It`s such a shame that there are some very irritating, and regular, glitches that will get to you, sooner or later; because this is an excellent Snooker game. Once you`ve played a few hours you`ll find that you can compete against more or less anyone and the only thing that will stop you is the fact it`s too much fun to hit the ball too hard, just like real Snooker! However...once I had got to the winning tournaments stage, the next time I loaded up there was no saved game on the hard drive. So I`d lost a few hours of game play and progress. It happened again too, a week later. So I have to expect that I will never be able to hit the heights for more than one evening...but probably more annoying was the one where a picture of John Virgo appears in the top right hand corner, covering about a quarter of the table, and wouldn`t go away! He wasn`t saying anything, just sitting with his microphone, getting in the way! The only way of getting rid of it was to turn it off. The commentary is ok, occasionally repetitive, sometimes completely irrelevant, and the 8-ball and 9-ball options are pretty good. The game is quite slow in loading from one room or screen to another. All in all, this is a fun game, and fairly accurate in its representation of the game, but it will sometimes leave you frustrated; it`s a 7/10 game.

Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Normal|Verified Purchase
My son loves this, he thinks it makes you feel as if you are playing for real, plus extras try some trick shots.!
This gives interaction between him and other family members so anything that is family is good he is 10 1/2 and coping well with this.

3.0 out of 5 stars Same old game as 2007 8 April 2009
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Normal
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Before I begin, I want readers to know there are some changes, but it the same game.

The control system is changed a bit, but you will get used to it. The main changes to this game are:

Good points:

1. Shanghai Masters added to Tournaments
2. Better Graphics
3. The save ability is a bit easier
4. Menu access is now decent
5. Some player stats are recorded eg: wins/losses, high breaks, against computer players.

Bad points:

1. Reduced all the Pool Tourneys to just one - UK Championships (Bad move)
2. Full of bugs, from Commentary to crowd noise looping again
3. since when is the Masters Wembley been a qualifying thing??
4. human players take 2 shots in a row from the break off?
5. Very poor 'Career Mode' not as great as you will find
6. First achievement won - it says "Frame Clearance" - when I didnt even clear the balls up! lol.
7. Heard that the online play is very bad

Under questioning Blade said:

"The control system underwent extensive play testing. We think you'll it better when you get used to them. In addition to media articles there are also sponsorship endoresments, cues, items for character create such as custom waistcoats, special locations, the golden cue and of course the trophies. Not to mention your nickname which changes depending on your style of play.

There is also a whole new graphics engine, stats system and coaching, tonnes of extra trick shots and challenges."

-- Personally they took an extra year to add little to this. Not good at all, but okayish.
