    out of nowhere....
    The controls really spoil this game, they are to fiddly and the balls in the 3D view seem to look like they are hovering over the table sometimes......

    The dudes on the cover either look very British or very Ghey. Not sure which.

    Doooood!

    They get all the ladies, they like get 3 at a time.

    I'm hoping this game is as good as Archer Macleans or Jimmy Whites Snooker.

    EDIT:
    Its not too bad, controls take a bit to get use to, they've could've been a hell of a lot better. Stick to touchscreen controls. Graphically it needs to be smoother and the top down view should have been done better as there are some collision troubles but they are fine in 3D so it doesn't effect the game. AI the CPU seems good, the odd human error here and there which is nice as some snooker games the players just pot every ball possible.

    Still I enjoyed it, its not as good as Jimmy White or Archer Macleans but the best we'll get on the DS for a bit. I know that the developers are doing another next year so I hope they improve on it.

    hadrian has got this game spot on the money. It is ok, but could of been smoother and better looking.

    Not as good as the amiga classic that its jimmy whites, but then again not much is (but is that just fond childhood memories?)

    i've played a few xbox pool/snooker games, including an old xbox version of this. I thought it would of been on par (or nearly) with teh xbox games (they're not too gfx intensive) shame i was wrong, still the best snooker sim on DS (oh wait its the only one)

    yeah i agree. the controls aren't terrible, but they could be smoother. the graphics are decent for a ds game. it'll stay on the flash cart for a little while, just nice to finally have a ds pool game (as the one in club house games is terrible).

    And slightly enhanced port of Jimmy White would do the buisness on the DS. A friend of mine works in Gamestation, says this game is selling quite well. A JW one would do a lot better.

    are you kidding, they're our sporting heroes in the uk. Neil Robertson and John Higgins are like the uk version of Evander Holyfield and Hulk Hogan

    Great as they are that can't be true! Maybe more comparable to say US Tennis heroes perhaps.

    Isn't Frank "Nutjob" Bruno our Holyfield and some random wacko full of steroids our Hulk Hogan?

    Oh yes I insulted the Hulkster! Bring the hurt.
