The popular PlayStation title World Championship Snooker is now available on the PS2. If you think that you’re the next Mark Williams or just enjoy knocking the balls around the table then this snooker game will appeal to you. This game may even convert the unconverted.

World Championship Snooker is a comprehensive snooker simulation at heart. If you are new to the game, an aiming aid is available that indicates the shot angle and what angle of deflection the cue ball will follow. The aiming system is good enough to modify itself if you put spin on the ball.

Snooker is so much more than just potting balls: tactical positional play is required to win at the highest level. Top and bottom spin change how the cue ball acts once it strikes an object ball and side spin changes the angle the cue ball takes off the cushions. It’s important to be thinking two or three shots ahead of yourself, setting up easy high scoring pots.

The PlayStation 2 version of WCS increases the graphical quality of the title with high-resolution tables, balls, backgrounds and players. The increased graphical realism intensifies the believability of the game. The computer players even act like their real life counterparts, right down to how well they perform under pressure. A nice touch is how you can speed up the pace of the game while you are not playing.

World Championship Snooker allows you to live the life of a snooker professional without leaving the house. Virtually travelling to the different venues, challenging the best players in the world and walking away with the trophy at the end is what it is all about.
