Although its hard to make snooker seem terribly sexy (Sega try their best by making everyone on the box cover scowl like theyre in a Steven Segal movie) the fact is it has an enormous fan base and it actually works really well as a video game. As with any yearly update this isnt massively different to the last game in the series: it features plenty of celebrity snooker players (rubbish) commentary from John Parrot and John Virgo plenty of game modes and online play on the Xbox. Although there is a tutorial mode the game is intuitive enough for you to pick and play from the off especially if you start the career mode and begin to slowly work your way up the ranks with your own custom character. The biggest challenge in the game though is having the will power to turn off all the control assists which initially help to make the game so easy to play. A new cue ball position zone marker makes things a lot easier than previous games as does helpful aiming arrows indicating when and how hard you should hit a ball.
Lining up shots still isnt quite as easy as it should be though and altering the strength of the shot on the right analogue stick also feels less accurate than it should do. There are a few bugs and glitches too particularly around foul balls. Graphically the game wont win any awards with poor animation and zombie like players but thats really not what the game is about. Until next year at least this is the best and only next gen snooker game around. HARRISON DENT.
