Excerpt: PDC World Championship darts is a half reasonable attempt for a first shot at a licenced game on the PS2. However there are lots of things that put this game down that could well be improved. First off the carear mode it just lets you be one standard darts player. There is a vey limited customation for your player eg a few shirts and theme song you can choose from but nothing to get you excited. The graphic quality for the PS2 isnt up to scratch.
Pros: Licnenced Game of the PDC and can be 10 licenced darts players
Cons: Poor Graphics , Repetitive Commentry , lack of Realism , lack of ` customisation
Excerpt: This is quite a good game for 1st timers, can be a bit slow loading and the graphics aren't great, but entertaining all the same. Would be a little more helpfull if you could save your progress through the career stages and not just at the end of the tournament as I discovered! So don't bother starting a tournament if you haven't got 3 hours to spare! Got a feeling they may have altered this problem in the newer versions of the game.
Summary: I was really looking forward to this game and in many ways it was just as I had hoped - it was fun, had all the real players and the presentation was pretty good. But in the end it was just a little bit flat - maybe darts is too difficult to really recreate in a game.
Excerpt: We purchased this game because the graphics on the case looked like real life graphics but we were very let down when it came to the gameplay. The dart throwing process is exactly the same as the darts game that you can play on sky active so there isn't really much competition or fun with the game. The best part we found with this game was when we turned off the ps2 and gave up.
Cons: Graphics are poor and gameplay could be better
Summary: At last a darts game for the PS2. At first, I feared it might be like on-line games where you have to hit the right point on a fast moving guage before releasing the dart. Happily, it's much better than that. An easily positioned target appears on the board and you have too apply the right amount of power to your shot. You do this by pulling back on one of the levers and pushing forward again. Too much power and you throw above the target, too little and you fall short.
Summary: Die 5 Sterne sprechen für sich - dieses Spiel ist einfach klasse! Die Grafik ist ganz hervorragend - die originalen Dart-Profis sind optisch toll getroffen, man kann für den Karriere-Modus seinen eigenen Spieler kreieren (inclusive individuell wählbarer Auftrittsmusik) und die Perspektiven sind den Kamerabildern der WM-Übertragungen nachempfunden.
