John Lowe's Ultimate Darts

This is Another Computer Darts Game, distinguished by the fact that it's packed with options allowing you to play against sixteen of the world's top players, play alternative games including 'darts soccer' and 'darts cricket', play against a chum using a real board and have the computer keep score (?), compete in various tournaments or exhibition matches, as well as all the usual computer darts stuff.

Control is by the traditional 'wobbly hand' method, and is no more or less useful/accurate/irritating than in other games of the genre. The football and cricket games add a degree of lasting appeal, but there's nothing here to seize the imagination.

The Bottom Line

It's computer darts time again. John Lowe's Ultimate Darts is probably better than last month's Codies effort, but still hardly stunning. Buy it if you must.
