    The fundamentals of arrow-throwing are executed well enough, but the spirit of the sport in a larger sense isn't, making for a totally acceptable, but soulless game of darts.

    Victory occasionally feels less down to skill than luck, but that doesn't cause it to veer too far from the bull. [May 2012, p.103]

    Top Darts may seem limited, but it is implicit to this genre: throw the darts following the different rules. It makes a good implementation of the touch controls and although it is not the most impressive game of PSVITA, it can provide for some hours of fun.

    Top Darts offers a lot of different gameplay modes and full customization, but unfortunately the technical realization is not as good as expected.

    If you are a dart fan you have to get moving and download Top Darts now also for your PS Vita – low price, high quality and many modes.

    Top Darts on the PS Vita is much better than on the PlayStation 3. Thanks to a number of new mini games and the intuitive control of the touchscreen, playing darts on a handheld has never been this fun.
  7. A bit inconsistent. [Apr 2012, p.115]

    The Vita's touch control is not optimal for throwing darts and Top Darts feels more like a smartphone app.
  9. There are 14 different rule sets to check out, but all of them fall victim to repetition. Gameplay revolves around dragging your finger across the front display to choose the area where you wish to hit, before pulling it down and then flicking. Rinse. Repeat. Woo. Pass. [April 2012, p78]

    There's plenty of fun to be had out of Top Darts, but a few issues prevent it from scoring a perfect 180.

    This is a really well put together game that makes solid use of the Vita's touchscreen and isn't distracted by some of the other possibilities presented by the new handheld console.

    Top Darts does a great job of replicating the feel of playing darts, but the campaign mode fails to encourage you to invest in its outstanding roster of modes.

    The controls are great, the overall game isn't. What's that? A paradox, you say? Well, as your sixth grade physics teacher should have told you: these things are a part of nature.
