Not many snooker games around. This already has me interested.

Hopefully this developer is the one that actually gets a snooker game right for the 1st time in 15 years, the most fun thing in WSC Real 09 was turning the aim off and smashing every shot at max power, 11 was an improvement visually but the sounds were awful.

Snooker Nation while the physics were good felt lifeless and had no atmosphere whatsoever with no commentary, the crowd very very rarely making any noise, the recycled referee (the same referee is on the PS1 version of the very first WSC) and the tit who endlessly asked the crowd that was silent 99.9% of the time to be quiet and let the players concentrate or to turn off their phones.

Content wise make it like WSC2004, visuals look good enough, sound wise get a couple of commentators (don't just re-use Virgo's and Davis's lines from WSC Real ffs) get the sounds of different types of shots right, put in the sound of a ball hitting the back of the leather when it's a clean pot or powered in and make the crowd at least sound like they're alive.

Get those things right and it will be the best representation of snooker consoles have seen since the PS2.

Oh wow... Finally a snooker game on the Xbox One. And no, that horrible preview game and the Pure Pool add-on do not count as snooker games. Especially when Pure Pool has no top-down view on a SNOOKER game?! facepalm

Graphics look amazing! Like it's tough to tell the difference between graphically generated and live! Boring as shit game though personally.

Really excited for this one. Love snooker games and lets hope for a 147 break achievement. smile
Personally im not a fan at all of top down view as it makes the game way to easy but it should definitely be included as an option.

I like pool and snooker games and would like to play them online vs others. Cross play with this would be essential otherwise there wont be enough of a base.

That's been done to death - give us a 155 break achievement!

Warning, the dev making this is the dev of pure pool - no top down view. Be cautious with your purchases and preorders until we see more about this title.

The Ripstone pool game was good. Though I wish there was more atmosphere. I also hope they add a proper decent online 2 player, with your mate, mode.
With the pool game, it was hard to have a simple 2 player online game. Come to think of it it was the same with Powerstar Golf. Sometimes you just want a simple game with a friend.
Hellsteeth!
