Snooker 19 breaks off right on cue
It’s been a good long while since an officially-licensed Snooker game hit the latest generation of consoles. Snooker 19, out this spring on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch, breaks off right on cue.
Snooker 19, developed by Leamington Spa-based studio Lab42, has 128 officially-licensed pros in it, including big hitters Ronnie O’Sullivan, Judd Trump, Mark Selby and Ding Junhui, and older pros who are still knocking about on the pro tour, such as Peter Ebdon, Ken Doherty and Jimmy White. It’s also got virtual recreations of The Crucible and Alexandra Palace, among other famous snooker venues.
Gameplay wise, Snooker 19 sees the player line up shots, apply side or spin to the cue ball, set stroke power then use the left stick to pull back before flicking forward at just the right time. Time your shot well and you’ll strike the ball cleanly. Time it badly and the cue ball will wobble off course.
