Summary: Simple...if you are a "pick up from the shelf and master the game straight away" gamer...don't buy this! You'll become easily frustrated and end up kicking the cat over into next door's garden! However, for the more laid back gamer, who slowly tries to get to grips with a game, it is a brilliant game. I bought it for my girlfriend and was a bit wary with all the reviews it had been given.
Conclusion: Just been playing for an hour. First twenty minutes I was tearing my hair out and then the penny dropped. You have to bring back your hand with wiimote the way you would a real dart and then thrust forward, releasing 'a'; it's all in the timing and composure - if you jerk too much you won't release the dart or it will go awry. Played a tournament, got to the final and lost by a whisker. Very tense really - like real darts. Shame you can't play on-line.
Conclusion: Thsi is one of the most realistic games ive ever played! Yes, it takes a while to begin with. When i started, it took me 10 minuets to throw 3 darts! But over time, as you practice more you get better, just like real life. Untill finally you hear the announcer say 180!!!!!!!!!! Not for the impatient who play for half an hour get frustrated and walk away. But if youve got the patience you pick it up after some practice and it really is a great game.
