I can't lie to you lot, snooker isn't something I've paid that much attention to the older I've got. Memories of snooker are more as a kid and Dad watching legends like Jimmy White, Steve Davis, and the guy with the upside down glasses *types upside down glasses snooker into Google* Dennis Taylor, that's him. The one guy I know these days is Ronnie O'Sullivan, and that's purely because he seems to win things a lot. Snooker 19 in terms of players on offer to you not only offer the previously mentioned Ronnie but also players like Mark Williams and others that could be waiters in a bar or pub for all I know. A good mix of pros and rookies none the less. It also has places like the Crucible, Alexandra Palace and a bunch of other halls to play your matches at. So great for the snooker nut who likes it all official looking.
In terms of the table stuff in the game, it would be pretty hard to get this wrong, and Snooker 19 doesn't really. Everything plays as a table full of balls bouncing around should. It captures the whole look and feel, but the letdown really in the commentary. This is both dull and full of errors, with the guys doing it either sounding like they watching another match, or just adding nothing to the game at all. You end up just paying no attention to them.
Overall: Snooker 19 is a decent Snooker game for consoles, but for £29.99 I would certainly say have a look around the store if you after a cheaper snooker fix and don't care too much about licences. Certainly, take a look at Snooker Nation Championship which cost just £5.91 on the store right now, and offers more of the same, even letting you change things like decals on the table. On top of this, for some reason, it offered a lot more fun when compared to Snooker 19 on easier settings, with Snooker 19 having players who even when set on the easy setting still destroy you, but then seconds later missing the easiest of pots. Just made no sense
