WSC Real 08: World Snooker Championship Gameplay

The game includes new elements, which makes the game seem more realistic. Players will be able to switch into a first-person view, allowing them to walk around the table and examine any ball they wish, they can carefully watch their opponents' body language to see how they respond as the game progresses. The game includes all the tournaments and official licenses for the season.

Official Nintendo Magazine UK gave the Wii version 89/100, saying "You won't find many better sports games on the Wii."

The WSC Real 09 version of the game, the later release on the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC formats, didn't fare quite so well, achieving an average of 70% at GameRankings.

In a review of the Xbox version, Computer & Video Games UK praised its realistic ball physics and challenging AI, and called it the "most authentic snooker game to date". However, the reviewer criticised its loading times, underwhelming presentation, and minor camera issues.
