Excerpt: Darts is a rather strange sport when you think about it: its best players are anything but 'sporty' and the game itself is as simple as a game can be.

Pros: Neat control system, All the top players

Pros: All the top players, It’s like the darts on Sky Sports!, Lots of tournaments, Party games, Phil Taylor
Cons: The control method doesn’t allow for accuracy or consistency, A few party games but where’s the fun element?, No widescreen option?, Do you really want to play darts on a console?, Peter Manley
