This review is from: SEGA Presents Touch Darts (Nintendo DS) (Video Game)
A more than decent attempt at recreating the game of choice for the armchair athlete.
The controls are intuitive and quite easy to get to grips with after a few games - the stylus works really well, but never easy enough to enable you to score 180 with every throw.
The difficulty is pitched just right with the early levels gently easing you into the challenge of the later levels.
It loses a star as there is a slight feeling of the computer 'cheating' in later levels - it rarely misses high finishes and the amount of 9, 10 and 11 dart finishes it scores increases ridiculously - it's hard to avoid the feeling that however you perform the computer will simply perform 1 step better and beat you (score 140? - the computer will score 180, score 180? - so will the computer)
The minigames are fun - although a couple are pretty difficult (finishes is particularly unforgiving) and do teach you things that will assist you in the full game.
I've finished the game 3 times now and still pick it up for the odd fun game.
