The tables have been expertly rendered, ball physics seem fine and the full range of shots are available. So it's not that there's anything drastically wrong with this, just there's already too many average pool games on the market. It's also worth noting that Codemasters have what looks like a very good snooker sim about to hit the streets, so competition will be fierce. Being totally honest I enjoyed the sub-games more than the main game, but then I prefer to go down to the pub for a real game of snooker or pool.

For the money I was expecting from BAM! another sleeper hit like "Contender 2", but the dated graphics and unrealistic (and choppy) physics butcher what little simulation there's left in either the pool or Snooker variations of "Jimmy White's 2: Cueball". Great tunes though, and even better mini-games to mess-around with.

So witzig der Einfall auch sein mag. Eine Kneipensimulation ist nicht unbedingt das, was spielsüchtige PS-Zocker am dringendsten brauchen. Eine reinrassige Billard-Simulation hätte hier wohl mehr gebracht. Und überhaupt! Wie bestellt man in einer virtuellen Kneipe ein Bier?
Mega Fun
Fazit: Billard-Freunde, die ein anspruchsvolles Billard-Spiel mit interessanten Varianten suchen, werden mit Cueball 2 sicher glücklich werden.
It might have been a good PC game, but Jimmy White's 2: Cueball lost a lot in its transition to the PlayStation. Due in large to the fact that its icons, text and interface just doesn't seem fit for a console, the pool and snooker games are just about unplayable. The game's only saving grace is that it's extras, which include an arcade port of Dropzone, checkers and darts, that might make it worth plunking down the $9.99 to get this game. However, even at that price, I wouldn't recommend this game unless you must play Dropzone on your PlayStation or you have some sort of sick and twisted crush on Mr. Jimmy White.
