  1. Giving a niche audience what it wants, arguably at the expense of general appeal. [Mar 2008, p.76]
  2. 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.
  3. 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. 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.
  5. 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.

    Overall the PlayStation 2 version of PDC World Championship Darts is by far the worst of the bunch.

    This game is complete and total crap.
