Now this is more like it. 3d views (sort of) and playability. You can't ask for more
(but you might ask for cheaper). Here you've got the standard rules of snooker, a top
view in which to plan your shots and a 3D view in which to see the balls rolling around
like, er, a lot of coloured balls.
3D Snooker, is rather sophisticated. The balls actually behave as they're supposed to,
and you can spin, swerve, screw and smash the cue-ball all over the shop.
The program keeps all scores, high breaks and other details, and tells you what you're
supposed to be going for next. It's possible to plan your breaks just like a real player.
But unless you practise 23 hours a day (like a real player), you'll be lucky to pot
more than two or three balls in a row.
Yes, 3D Snooker is a great game. I phoned the Crucible and they told me that snooker
tables cost £2000, so you're getting a real barg at £4 for this. Snap it up and start
hitting the green baize (whatever that is).
