  • Conclusion: To summarize, though there are still significant shortcomings, the game has improved notably over the 2008 edition. It's the best Darts game around, and fans of the sport should enjoy it. PDC 2009 hits the shelves in Europe on May 29th.

  • Summary: Following a disappointing debut on the Nintendo Wii last year, PDC World Championship Darts is back for the 2009 season. Development duties have been handed over to Rebellion for the sequel, and the result is definitely a step in the right direction. While the game's graphics are still rough, the controls and gameplay are much improved, which makes the experience considerably more enjoyable overall.
  • Pros: Controls feel responsive and intuitive, Convincing pub sound effects
  • Cons: Character models are ugly, Presentation is bare bones, Music is repetitive, Menus are confusing and hard to navigate

PDC World Championship Darts 2009 review (WII)

  • Excerpt: has made some big steps up from its previous version, but that everything about the game is so budget that it hardly looks any different from the initial outing made two years ago on the PS2 isn’t something that makes it an easy recommendation.

PDC World Championship Darts 2009 [Wii] Review

WiiDS.co.uk
18 June 2009
  • Excerpt: There are certain simulation games that make you think “What’s the point? You might as well go out and do the real thing.” Before even receiving my review copy, I wondered this to myself. It’s not even the first of its kind, there was also a 2008 edition and I thought for Rebellion Studios to develop a sequel, there better be a good reason or two. As you can imagine, there’s not an awful lot to a darts-simulation game.
  • Pros: Fairly accurate portrayal of dart-throwing, Commentary from Sid Waddell adds realism, Many multiplayer party games
  • Cons: Gets boring quickly, No online modes, Unlikely to tempt gamers who aren’t fans of darts
