The sequel of sorts to the higly popular (in the UK at least) Jimmy White’s Whirlwind Snooker, AMP uses the exact same engine as the first game, the only obvious difference being the switch from snooker to pool. You are given a choice of either UK 8-ball (REAL pool biatch), US 8-ball or US 9-ball and the option to play either matches or tournaments against friends or AI players (of which there are over 20).
The graphics are nice and clear, the interface is simple and well thought out and the physics model is spot on. It’s hard to criticise AMP because it is a damn good simulation of the real thing.
Oh, and for a little surprise leave the mouse pointer static for a few moments and keep your eye on the balls – it always cracks me up 😉
