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.
Out Of Eight
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 ?
