    Where to start.
    Graphics: its snooker so not much to be said about on table graphics its goid enough to do the job. The players and animations are terrible and full of bugs players going through tables rest being left on the table poor.
    Online: well at the minute there is none as they got trouble with this but when you can play its restricted to shot timers and match timers consistung of

    Online: well at the minute there is none as they got trouble with this but when you can play its restricted to shot timers and match timers consistung of 1 frame with no options to change. This has an impact on the game massively to the point you cant actually finish a frame if you playing tactical so whoever is in the lead wins at 20 minutes. Utterly unrealistic and makes the game a rush of trying to pot everything.
    Licences well i dont see the point as every player plays the same as each other and let me say they are garbage and unrealistic Ronnie was on with a big break available straight black but runs upto the yellow instead. Positional play by the cpu is atrocious.
    The game is broken to the point i cant see this being saved utter garbage until they sort these issues.
    The actual physics and snooker could be good especially if they get rid of the restrictions online so you can actually play a proper match with friends etc.
    But in its current state this game is pointless.
    No career development for your character so doesnt get better the more you play. I honestly dont understand the licence as the cpu is just generic doesnt matter who you play they play exactly the same no personality.
    Sound: delayed connection sounds no atmosphere in big games commentary shocking and doesnt go with the action.
    Sadly i recomend giving this game a miss and wait until the next snooker game in 10 years time.
    Ryshed out and screwing the customers over because they know everyone is desperate for a good snooker game so they give us this which isnt good enough.

    Snooker 19 is a nice surprise for the Xbox One as playing and becoming a superstar of snooker is a blast and having all the official licenses makes the journey all that better. Snooker and billiards isn’t as popular as it once was in the gaming arena. There's been many snooker and billiards games over the years but very few are licensed and yet even fewer are worth playing. ThankfullySnooker 19 is a nice surprise for the Xbox One as playing and becoming a superstar of snooker is a blast and having all the official licenses makes the journey all that better. Snooker and billiards isn’t as popular as it once was in the gaming arena. There's been many snooker and billiards games over the years but very few are licensed and yet even fewer are worth playing. Thankfully Snooker 19 is actually a solid game, although it isn't perfect. It does however get more right than it gets wrong and they’ve done well with the visuals and sound design and overall presentation. The game has a real snooker feel and combining that with the licensed players and tournaments it does give the game impact. The physics are realistic overall and winning a tournament did carry with it a very rewarding experience due to the difficulty. Unfortunately though the AI is almost overpowered at times which takes away some from the experience of the enjoyment in the gameplay. There's also a few glitches in the game from time to time so while Snooker 19 does have a few misses and it lacks in terms of gameplay modes, I still was excited to play the career mode each time I sat down; it was also quite enjoyable with friends. With that being said this is definitely the best Snooker game available for the Xbox One. So if you are a fan of the genre there's no reason to purchase it for your Xbox library and enjoy everything it has to offer. Expand

    Snooker 19 is a must have game for all of the fans of this sport. It's realistic, is fully licensed and create absolutely amazing pictures. A great snooker game.

    There’s a really good core game here, but it’s let down by the overall presentation. If you enjoy snooker though, you can easily look past this to enjoy it for what it is.

    A faithful sim that overcomes bland presentation thanks to fabulous potting. [Issue#178, p.80]

    Sadly, the two career modes hardly feel different to each other, and the players don't develop during the season due to a lack of stats or attributes to differentiate players from each other. Playing against the AI shows that, despite the cast of 128+ characters, they are all different skins of the same athlete, with no varying strategies, which is a shame - but, there is online mode for the professionals who wish to take their snooker experience to the next level.
