PDC World Championship Darts
Ah, Darts, That most noble of sports, the princely pastirpe for fat, beer-swilling wannabe gangsters and pissed-up pub-goers still one pint short of engaging that beautiful woman at the bar in a meaningful conversation about her frequentation of the establishment Now don't get me wrong, I like a game of arrows as much as the next man (so long as the next man isn't Phil Taylor or Raymond van Barneveld, both of whom appear in this fully PDC-licenced title). However, the idea of playing it on my PC is, well, just wrong.
Instead of having to listen to the twat at the bar who dishes out useless advice before you take every shot you're forced to listen to Sid Waddell's excruciating banalities as you move your mouse backwards and forwards to take a shot Annoying and simplistic, now that's what 1 call a killer combination.
Sure, there are a myriad of options, including a career mode and a raft of wacky party games, including Killer and Round The Clock, and the visuals are fairly impressive. Ultimately though, there's about as much depth here as a baking tin.
Some fairly slick presentation and decent Al improve matters somewhat, but overall, PDC feels more like a mini-game than a piece of software worthy of 25 guid. Go down the boozer and play for free instead. You never know, you might even pull.
