    Overall the PlayStation 2 version of PDC World Championship Darts is by far the worst of the bunch.
  2. 10
    This game is complete and total crap.
  3. Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    It's as close to perfect as a darts game can be but, thanks to the nature of darts, that means it's sitll a bit dull, really. [Feb 2008, p.84]
  4. 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.
  5. AceGamez
    PDC World Championship Darts 2008 has its entertaining moments, but it will not hold your attention for too long unless you are a diehard darts fan.
  6. Games Master UK
    Giving a niche audience what it wants, arguably at the expense of general appeal. [Mar 2008, p.76]
  7. PSM3 Magazine UK
    It's all perfectly playable and decent to look at, but it's not the slickest or most appealing of sports games, and it's hardly massively different to last year's outing either. [Mar 2008, p.80]
  8. So there you have it – a darts game that offers a fairly miserable experience for non-darts fans, but uses the licence well enough to divert the attention of a fan of the televised sport for ever-so slightly longer.

    It's ok. Could be better.
