Jimmy White's 'Whirlwind' Snooker
With a sequel of sorts waiting in the wings, the old snooker balls are being rolled out once more - although this game is hardly likely to whet your appetite for what's to come.
Whirlwind 2 was a classic of its day, featuring a 3D table and accurate ball physics for the first time. Now, of course, it looks pretty ropy, the graphics looking more functional than attractive and the wealth of options lying a bit thin next to more recent pool-oriented efforts.
As a simple snooker sim it does the job, but it's only really a game for two players - the four computer opponents are almost too good, and it gets pretty boring losing all the time. All in all, it's not bad, but our advice would be to save your fiver for Whirlwind 2, which looks the business.
