    Goof effort. I've not played for months now. I've never really tried for a 147 just to keep winning everything. Maybe I should give it a try.

    So many great games in my collection but most won't run anymore, still have the cd's of the 2 Jimmy White snooker games
    Oh, sorry, I misinterpreted. Ah, yes, Jimmy White Snooker. I liked it until the balls starting pulling stupid faces just as you were about to shoot.

    I wonder what the status is of 'This is Snooker' which is focused around Hendry, i heard it was cancelled, then heard development was still ongoing.

    Bought it today, seems good but my aiming view is stuck on the view you see when your watching the telly. I can't aim whilst behind the cue like I've seen everyone online.

    Nah, career for me. It seems from what's being said on the reddit sub that 90% of online players are exploiters and cheats, with no real interest in snooker itself.

    Yes. I'm 99% sure it does.

    That was fixed in the patch. I'm not saying it doesn't happen, but it's certainly not on every shot like it was before.

    The one that gets me is the computer opponent's obsession with the yellow ball; pots a long red from the baulk end and lands perfectly on the black, then gets down and drops the yellow in, leaving himself on the baulk cushion

    I've got it on the XBox. Had the update yesterday and the only thing I've actually noticed since is that the transitions are now blue (an just as annoying!)
    General game play is ok.

    Playing as Jimmy White (even though he shouldn't be allowed a tour card ) I've won a couple of ranking tournaments, lost in the semi final a couple of times. Rank started about 74 I think now ranking 24. Highest break to date 133.

    Probably my biggest niggle with it is being almost impossible to judge angles of cushions because of the views available (or having no rebound guide line - unless I haven't found it yet!)
    Not being able to move around the table is frustrating.
    As others have mentioned the transition between shots (new one included) is rubbish.
    There seems to be quite a few rule oddities.

    Minor niggles are plenty... inc...
    opponent often plays with the rest despite definitely not needing to?!
    as others have said opponent rolling every ball in dead weight.
    Commentary is often irrelevant and repetitive.

    I reckon there'll be a lot of second hand copies floating around soon.
