The result of this attention to detail and commitment to develop an ongoing Wii version of the game is a great little experience. If you have even a slight inkling towards darts and a smattering of patience to persevere for a few hours with the controls you will find a lot of fun here.

In einem Punkt muss ich den Kritikern recht geben: Den Darts-Sport spannend zu transportieren, ist eine schwierige Aufgabe. Das gilt für das Fernsehen genauso wie für eine Umsetzung als PC-Spiel. PCD World Championship Darts 2008 ist tatsächlich eine spannende Simulation. Besonders die realistische Steuerung motiviert auf längere Zeit. Nur die fehlende Entwicklung unseres Spielers und der anfangs zu hohe Schwierigkeitsgrad trüben den Spielspaß.

PDC World Championship Darts 2008 isn't going to interest anyone who doesn't already have a fondness for the sport and, given how easy and cheap it is to play in real life, even those fans may struggle to find reason to pick up their Wii Remotes. The gameplay works, but the simple presentation and general lack of polish unfortunately relegate the game to something only a very small minority will enjoy.

So to the out shot; if you’ve been waiting for a darts game to play on your PS2 (or PS3) then this is likely to be a fun game, but for a short time. As we said about last year’s game, PDC WCD 2008 is probably the best effort at a darts game yet, but the party games aren’t particularly fun and the career mode soon becomes a tiresome chore. Darts isn't football or golf and a season of this seems like a lifetime. And as we stated last year, most video gamers play games to do things they can’t do in real life, and I still can’t see why anyone would buy this rather than either watch the top players on TV, video or DVD, or alternatively play the real thing either at home or down the pub.

It's fair to say that PDC World Championship Darts 2008 is pretty much the definitive serious darts game on consoles, with very little competition out there aside from Sega's Touch Darts on Nintendo DS perhaps. For 360 owners it's number one in a field of one, lacking a little longevity in single player modes once the novelty's worn off, though Career Mode can prove to be quite rewarding with a good mix of pro and amateur events spread across the tournament calendars. The official score guy creeped the hell out of me though. Gollum lives! The conclusion is that if you're a massive darts fan who religiously follows the game, then this is your equivalent of FIFA Soccer or Pro Evo. If you've only a passing interest in pub games it'll probably do very little to convert you.

Darts could have been a simple and fun computer sport, but PDC World Championship Darts 2008 royally screws up in several keys area. The controls stink since they are too unforgiving and non-adjusting for difficulty. The AI is too perfect to provide fair competition. The game offers varied game modes, but they are only available as party games against human players on the same computer. The commentary is insulting and repetitive. About the only good quality of PDC World Championship Darts 2008 is that the player models are realistic, and that’s not important at all. The learning curve induced by the controls and the AI makes PDC World Championship Darts 2008 almost impossible to play as a novice. Even if you really like darts, it’s better just to buy a real dart board then to play this mess of a game.

Plus encore que pour d'autres franchises sportives, on est en droit de se demander ce qui légitime une édition annuelle de PDC World Championship Darts. Les adeptes snoberont une fois de plus cette vaine tentative de transposition virtuelle, tandis que les autres fuiront à toutes jambes à la simple énonciation du titre. C'est quand même un comble, non, une simulation de fléchettes qui n'a pas de cible ?
