Steve Davis‘ Snooker ist alles in allem ein empfehlenswertes Spiel, aber leider etwas zu teuer.

Snooker - what a hideously dull game. Nice conversion though. Nice, but dull.

The geometry of the program, and the way in which spin is taken into account, is more realistic. It will take about as long to line up your shot as it takes Cliff Thorburn to play a simple stroke, but then snooker is not the fastest sport around anyway. On average a frame should take half an hour, about the same as in real life. Problems occur however with foul shots. Although the correct penalties are awarded and the option to take the shot or put the player who fouled in again is there, there is no provision for a free ball. Nor does there appear to be any recognition of a touching ball.

Pour les amateurs de tapis vert et de queue, un billard américain sur écran aux mouvements de balle pour le moins réalistes. La force du tir, et les effets donnés à la balle blanche (rotation) sont modulables. Le reste est histoire de stratégie et d'habileté. Les règles manquent de détails.

If you're a dedicated afficionado then Steve Davis will no doubt appeal to you. But I think that CRL have been too ambitious this time. In the translation to the smaller machine all the best bits of the game have had to be dropped.
