In just one practice game I decided the game is broke. I used the guide to line up several shots that did not go where the guid said it would. Fix that and it might be fun.

Could not even connect to play with my friend. Wasted a lot of time trying to make it work, but with no result. Do not recommend.

For a snooker lover this game is perfect. Even down to the referee. I played a lot of snooker games on the Playstation and Playstation 2 but find the control of the camera, cue and ball much, much better. My only thing I could suggest to improve is the Fine Aiming to be a little more Fine. But it is no big deal just requires better mouse control which isn't hard to do

not sure why such mixed reviews .ok its no next gen amazing graphics and atmosphere , but for a snooker game its great , you create a character (admittedly about 3 choices to make on that one) , you start a carear and work your way to the top .Controls are nice simple and easy plus a few extra tricks to learn along the way. Earn credits and use them to buy better cues and open up pool games etc. Venues change from tournament to tournament ,overall for the very reasonable price i love it , if you like snooker and want a chill out evening game this is well worth it

Buy this game its great and very cheep $2 online. Lets start a fun snooker community. Nothing new here it's snooker after all but game is the most realistic i have ever played. Right now it would seem the Devs have just dumped this game on steam and left it. The AI is brutal but you will learn quickly. and your first 147 will feel????? I wouldn't no because i havent managed it yet but plenty have.

Mi aspettavo di meglio, ma resta un gran bel simulatore di snooker: la fisica è ottima, il panno e le ganasce rispondono come dovrebbero, ovvero ruvidissimo il primo, infami le seconde XD
I controlli non sono il massimo e la potenza da preimpostare con uno slider anziché col brandeggio col mouse abbatte di molto l'effetto simulativo. Graficamente è apprezzabile, però anche in questo gioco mancano gli sprites del giocatore, non mi sembra una cosa impossibile da implementare nel 2015! Avrebbe guadagnato molti punti se lo avessero fatto, magari soprattutto per apprezzare i tiri in scomodità con il rest.
Non ho ancora provato le varianti del pool.

Resta comunque da amante dello snooker un titolo accettabile!

E' un altro gioco rispetto al Pool. Più lento, più ragionato e meno frenetico. La carriera è fatta da numerosi tornei dai quali si inizia dai 64esimi e alla lunga diventano ripetitivi. se si sbaglia si deve ricominciare la carriera daccapo. non si possono intraprendere più carriere. comunque il gioco, se vi piace il genere vale, soprattutto a meno di 1 euro!

Got a key a little while ago from a bundle i bought over a year ago. I thought i would give it a go as i used to quite like snooker.
Glad i did as it's a very fun and polished little game. It is very easy to pick up and play for someone like me that knows the rules of snooker and have played it a bit but am also a pretty rubbish player:)
There are lots of tournaments to enter and credits to be won. You can then spend them on upgrades, different cues, auto-chalk and the like. The AI is pretty good, doesn't cheat and does make mistakes. Obviously it gets better the further you get in a tourny but the difficutly is nicely curved.
The graphics are good as are the sound effects. A special mention goes to the crowd. They ohh and ahhh when you miss and pot a difficult shot you'll be met with a cheer. You'll even hear them cry 'go on my son' and cough. And too much noise will be met with a shhh from the ref.

If you like snooker even a bit you will enjoy this game. It's addictive and fun. I recommend picking it up on sale at least. Oh and it has pool too.

This is not a game I can honestly recommend with a clear conscience, although people looking for a Snooker simulation on Steam are going to find their options sorely limited; this is in fact the only one, but there are so many things that don't feel right with this game.

The AI difficulty can vary wildly within the same match, and even within the same frame, going from missing shots you'd think were unmissable to clearing the table unless you snooker your opponent on the break. The AI has no concept of shot selection either - in one example, the computer opponent had potted a red and ended up in the jaws of the middle pocket, completely unable to see pink and black. He them promptly nominated black (despite having an easy blue he could drop in to the opposite middle) and proceeded to play the cue ball directly into the jaw of the middle pocket, sending it careering around the table and missing everything. This happened 3 times in a row, at which point I was awarded the frame. Laughably bad.

Michaela Tabb, bless her heart. She's a good referee and a likable character on the Snooker and Pool circuit, but there's no visual representation of her in-game at all; she's been reduced to a disembodied voice with about as much emotion in her tone as GLaDOS in Portal. In some instances, the game doesn't even get the scores right - on more than one occasion, I've potted a red, followed by a pink (for a break of 7), only for the game to proudly announce that I'm on a break of 6. The only thing stopping poor Michaela from turning in her grave is that she isn't actually dead.

Sending the cue-ball in-off is a common occurrence, but one that seemingly happens at random, completely irrespective of how careful or otherwise you're playing. There is no consistency with shot power, with a 100% power shot sending the cue ball all the way around the table twice, but a 40% power shot is rarely enough to even pot the black off its spot.

Animations of the crowd clapping are horribly and obviously looped, the player character is never seen and has no character model, so you can forget about character customisation aside from the name, and the opposing player is only ever seen sat down at the side of the table while you make your break. Obviously it was too much to ask to animate a model of someone walking around a snooker table and playing a shot.

If you want a good snooker game on the PC, avoid this and buy Virtual Pool 4, which has a fantastic snooker game mode.

As a huge fan of regular snooker, both playing at amateur level in my local club or pub and watching and enjoying top flight competition – I am disappointed with this dreadful attempt to bring snooker to Steam.

Immediately this game is presented more like a final year project and the short-falls are painfully obvious from the get go.

- Full of bugs
- Balls appearing in pockets mysteriously
- Child like understanding of the rules of the game
- Zero ability to finesse shot choice
- Ball physics give little to no satisfaction, with the side / swerve / spin apparently just included because it should be.

I can’t recommend this even for the €2 in the sales – it is truly dreadful and frustrating.

for me having played the real game and having tried many other so called snooker/pool games have found this version simply brilliant. Yes there are the odd blip, like not being able to move around the table when white is in the 'D' following a foul. so here is my negative list;

Multiplayer very difficult to find players - I would recommend setting up a dedicated data base that shows when people are active that way we could dip in and out. Develop an a web snooker league through steam. I have started a group so if you play snooker please join.

The 3 miss rule, this seems wrong my understanding is player can hit an object ball but chooses not to then miss is called.

not being able to travel around table to see all angles

a change of referree and maybe a comentary?

so not a lot wrong really the points above are basic and could be rectified especially in any new upgrade. I hope that Bighead games do launch the new addition for PC

So for me i love it, great allround play, realistic so anyone not happy remember we are not the Rocket!!!!

This is the best sonooker i've played in a long while , It's a shame there is no local online option like you would get on ipad and I also think the multi player is bit lame ..Never mind if you're not into online then this snooker is sure great fun to play, very realistic. Not bad for the price.

I do enjoy a game of pixel based snooker and pool and have played many different games over the years, from classics such as Jimmy White's Whirlwind Snooker and Archer Maclean's Pool to World Championship Snooker and Virtual Pool 3. Over the past few years I've found my enjoyment from online game iSnooker, but the high price and lack of improvements in that game have meant I've given up on it forever. So, having given International Snooker a couple of long sessions, where does it stand on the scale? Unfortunately, a far, far way from the top.

The interface for thisg ame is just poor beyond words. You can only cycle through frames, for example, by clicking on the field through all the options and if you go past the option yuo want, you have to click all the way through again to get to where you want. An option to just cycle up AND down would have been an obvious choice here. The menus are like this for everything and quickly become frustrating. Furthermore, most game modes are locked from the beginning and can only be unlocked by winning tournaments, so if you're keen to play pool more than snooker, you're going to have to play a lot of snooker for the privilege.

The gameplay itself does not fare much better. The camera options are limited to overhead and table level, which is pretty standard, but during a shot you have no control and the AI picks the most awkward angles to show the shots from. Pots that would be impossible in real life - and would indeed not even be attempted by the top pros - can be pulled off with ease here whilst the AI play is erratic at best. Black off the spot? Not if a thin cut pink to the green pocket that offers worse position for the next red is there for the taking. Of course that doesn't matter, as an equally outrageous red will then be pulled off the AI, who will then miss a simple black off the spot in what is a real Jekyll and Hyde display. Perhaps the pink up to baulk was the right shot after all?

The whole thing just feels like a huge step backwards from the games that have come before it. This is tedious, processional snooker at its most basic and uninspiring, and a game I simply can't find any reason to recommend to anyone.

If you are a fan of Snooker, you will appreciate this title, as the physics are fairly true to form. Since this is only a simulation, the game has to be a little forgiving in certain areas...namely that the rounded pockets seem to allow balls to "bank in" more than in real life. It's great that you can unlock other forms of pool simply by completing in-game challenges, rather than having to pay for them. There are no Steam achievements, but the in-game trophies are fun to earn. The best part of this game is the online community; you can learn a lot from your multiplayer partners.

If you are after a snooker sim, this is the game for you.. Smooth shots, smooth ball movement and very nice environment. Absolutely great in those respects.. However, lazy devs, have completely and utterly failed to produce a two player game that has any kind of reliable multi player. If you want to play vs AI then your laughing, if you want to play against another human? best of luck with that. I have played maybe 5 vs games online in the 30 plus hours of game play on steam and they mean nothing anyhow so people just concede on you mid break.. such a shame, lazy attitude towards multiplayer on a two player game by the dev team means that i cant recommend this title with a clear conscience.
