Will Hudson’s Cue Sports have you cueing-up to buy it or leave you snookered?

Hudson’s Cue Sports aims to add a degree of fresh realism in contrast to Gameloft’s Midnight Pool, which is a much more light-hearted affair. Will its boast of Wi-Fi support and extensive game modes give it the edge as the definitive cue sports game...

Snookers verses Billiards... Snookers? Isn't that a candy bar? How is Billiards supposed to compete with that?!

Hudson are becoming the best developer on WiiWare (Alongside Gameloft) and i hope this game will help prove that. I do like Pool/Snooker games on Wii as i believe there's potential for the sport on the Wii.

Hudson's VC offerings haven't disappointed me yet (well, also I haven't actually downloaded any Hudson games yet lol. :P), so I expect this game to be pretty good. Even though I might just get Midnight Pool.

Hey, Mickey Mac, do you think you're funny? Snooker is a cue sport which is popular around the world (oh right it isn't well-known in the USA so it obviously doesn't matter) not a candy bar (I don't believe you are stupid enough to think snooker actually is a candy bar, I just think you were just making a failed attempt at humour). Also if you actually bothered to read properly you would find it is snooker not snooker*s* (no s/plural). From now on don't make comments about things you are completely ignorant about.

Anyway, by billiards do they mean cue sports/pocket billiards as a whole? Or the game of English Billiards, which is usually just reffered to as 'billiards' in the UK.

As it's been OFLC Rated, we should probably expect this fairly soon.

@Junichi:
I actually thought that was pretty funny. See, Snookers sounds a lot like Snickers, which is a famous candy bar. Despite the title being Snooker and not Snookers, when I read it I instantly added the S myself (misreading it) and thought the same thing. I think you could have used a little netiquette when you got offended by hearing that your favorite sport was being belittled as a candy bar.

So would you care to enlighten us as to what Snooker actually is?

snooker is a variation of pool. It's much more technical. I don't know how exactly it works, but i think google is your friend if you want more informations.
Concerning the title maybe the billard"S" is regrouping differents sort of billards, and why not the "billard francais" ("french pool" i guess in english) ?

Ah, this is good. I wanted to buy Midnight Pool a few days ago, but bought something else instead. Now, I'm going to wait for this to see which is the better game.

Hudson haven't done bad so far on WW, so hopefully this could be as good as Gamelofts attempt.

I Expect more from Hudson than i do from Gameloft, due to Hudson being Far more major players in the industry. I reckon this will top Gameloft's Midnight Pool

This sounds like it could be a lot of fun, hopefully in a similar vein to the classic Jimmy White's Whirlwind Snooker, of the 90's :-D

That's so cool I hope they keep the price 500 too. As long as the game play is good this game will definitely be a better value than Midnight Pool. After this game comes out and is reveiwed I'm totally going to get this one. :)

Only 500 Points? I translated the page through google to see for myself and i just don't believe it. This looks like it could be a really good Pool/Snooker game due to
A: Being developed by Hudson, who's WiiWare average rating is 7.75 from 4 games which is pretty good.
B: The trailers shows that the game plays quite well
C: Only 500 Points
D: Compared to Midnight Pool, it's 300 points cheaper and has Wi-Fi Multiplayer

I'm really looking forward to this. Hudson, make us proud

@Nintendork and Gameking23
Seeing as most games stay the same price when released in Multiple regions, i wouldn't be too surprised if it stays 500 points.

It's just been released today in australia, thinking about downloading this rather than midnight pool (that wasn't very good on pc) mainly for the network play.
For some reason however, it costs us aussies 800 wii points.

well I got it,
plays a fairly decent game of pool,
gfx are good, but the camera is VERY limited...
either right behind the cueball (which is about 1/4 the size of the screen)
or top down.
would have been sooooo much better with a freeform camera.
still for 800 wiipoints its not bad at all
as opposed to $100 for the pool games in the shops.
haven't tried online yet... but it looks promising :D

Terra said:

Hard to understand why we have to pay an extra 300 points for this when Japan get it at 500 and before anyone mentions Plattchen, remember that it was probably only changed because of the bad reviews and how they criticized the price.

Still, it looks like it will be really good. Can't wait for the review

Wow ... I probably like this game!

Anyone who already has ... How is the physic? Is it quite realistic?

how is the wi-fi game?

Is there any tournament mode?

As long as this game is as good as or better than Midnight Pool. I will get this one so please WiiWare World post your review. Please!

@ kornpol
physics are a bit dubious at times ie when the cueball hits another ball that ball moves faster than it should.
but otherwise they are spot on for angle shots and so on

my advice, if you like pool and network play..... buy it
800 wiipoints is still cheaper than $500 for a real pool table ;)

I'm undecided on getting this or Midnight Pool. I might get both in the end but this sounds much better than Midnight Pool. This looks like great fun for multiplayer, especially as it has online as well.

So does the american version of this game have snooker as well? Cause it's quite a few blocks less.

StarDust4Ever said:

@Toddr: Yes, it has Snooker, although I would have gladly traded it for some three-way "Cut Throat" pool action (lows-mids-highs - object is to sink your opponents balls, not your own)
