PDC World Championship Darts 2009 review (DS)
29 June 2009
Excerpt: You're not going to like PDC World Championship Darts 2009 unless you like darts. It's not like FIFA, where even if you don't watch or play football you can still enjoy the game. With PDC 09, you need to have a passing interest in the real thing before you even think about enjoying yourself. Even then, though, you're not likely to get much enjoyment from it.
Excerpt: Pub sports have always struck me as sharing numerous links with motor sports. Don’t giggle, the two have more in common than you might imagine.

On closer inspection, however, the two disciplines reveal some similarities.
Excerpt: After recently reviewing the Wii version of PDC World Championship Darts 2009 , and finding it to be the most realistic darts game ever, I was interested to see if they could continue the quality with the DS version.

Excerpt: Darts is not exactly the most exciting sport in the world, certainly not to watch anyway, but a game of arrows down the pub can be a laugh now and again. Of course you don’t need to drink for darts to be fun, but it does help, and the latest instalment in this franchise has done all it can to be a faithful recreation of the sport. But how does it measure up to the real game?
