This is a great surprise! But watching the gameplay video it looks bog standard. Genuinely looks like a very early ps3 title. I've never heard of Lab42 but hey, at least there is a game.

I had a go at Hustle Kings a few years ago. Was good for pool but Snooker was ridiculously difficult.

Full Gameplay


Looks a bit ropey..

That's me haha, this is the deal that footage is pre April 17th patch, the devs have told me the patch will have substantial upgrades, whilst the animations look poor and full of bugs this is a pre EGX build, the game plays great.

I think it looks pretty good

Few glitches etc but it's never going to be like fifa visual wise
But as a snooker game it looks decent

Was going to get this on the Switch but as no date announced might get it on PS4 - currently reduced to £26.99 for Plus members (not a huge saving from the £29.99) however nice to see a game retailing for that price and digital price matching it too

Doesn’t look brilliant, but hopefully any patches will improve it!

Had this preordered on Amazon but for whatever reason they ain't delivering now until May 7th earliest.

Will pick it up elsewhere later.

First impressions

It’s hard!

A dead straight pot with little to no position require easy, but moment you start getting into cuts, snookers and safety becomes a really really hard game I think

Career mode is also tough, I’m on medium, but in 4 of my 5 qualifiers I’ve played Ronnie twice, Trump once and Selby once - guys that on any difficulty aint going to miss much

Online is also tough, currently playing someone who is on a 45 and counting break

Yeah there was and the update has worked

I definitely wouldnt give it a 1 star rating

There is a tough learning curve for some shots/snookers/safety plays

It’s a bit like fifa - when its going your way you like it and it’s great, but when its going against you you hate it lol

I’d give it a 3.5/5

Bought this today and after 3 games I think it's great

Yeah it's got a few glitches and jankyness (if that's a word) but the physics are perfect and the AI seems brilliant.
I was snookered by the AI and managed to get out of it only for the next 6 or 7 shots to be us both playing safety shots well before I messed one up.

Lost that frame but it felt great and I deserved the result
