    This got horrible reviews, if anyone was wondering. Definitely one of the worst shovelware titles.

    Seriously, darts isn't even a fucking sport. It's what you play at bars when you're half-drunk. Why would then even have a league out of that? Let alone a video game about the league?

    To be fair it draws a lot of viewers/crowds which equals money. What you probably should be asking is why so many people are interested in the leagues.

    It makes me wonder. How can people be so stupid? Why would somebody spend even an hour of their life to make and publish a video-game of throwing darts? I pity them...

    the game is pretty good on the pc and if they have kept the same mechanics then i dont think it would be bad
    graphically looks the same as PDC 2008 so anyone interested should try it out, I will

    Darts is officially a sport by the way.

    How the hell do you fail at making a game about DARTS?!?!

    Seriously? I mean the bar isn't exactly high.

    Seems your definition is quite off. I play Tennis twice a week and don't get paid - does that mean it isn't a sport?

    Also a lot athlete's don't get paid for their sport. They get paid by advertising milking their talent and popularity....

    Cool story bro.

    Political correctness defines darts as a sport. Common sense defines it as a "sport". Seriously though, I've seen it on TV and it bored the hell out of me. It's like watching archery but without anything amusing. For fuck's sake, it's a game you play at a bar. Why don't we have WCBP while we're at it? World Championship of Beer Pong? Well, mind you, you don't usually play beer pong at a bar, but it's still as much of a sport as goddamn darts.
