Top Darts combines a mix of classic Dart games, like 501, Around The Clock and Cricket, with extensive League & Cup competition modes, as well as a large selection of varied game modes. If competing against your friends is more your thing Top Darts allows up to 8 players to battle it out across a range of competitive games and events specifically tailored to enhance the multiplayer experience.

 

As well as catering for fans of more traditional Dart games, the game also offers a little bit of something different with a range of frantic simultaneous play games. This allows two players to play at the same time offering a very different Darts experience that, as far as we’re aware, has never been seen before.

 

Top Darts releases exclusively on the PlayStation Store this Christmas.

Looks nice but was never impressed with dart games on the Wii.

Does this game support dual shock controls?

 

I have no interest in MOVE at all - So no point in me buying it it doesnt support a normal controller.

 

Thanks.

Admitted it does need online capabilities included to keep your intrest going. But it is easily the best darts game I've played on any gaming machine. So well done the makers and could we please see online added at some stage in form of an update.

started to have a few problems with calibration, which is odd, never had them when i first started. noticed a bug, where the game loses tacking of the move controller you then have to quit the game, then restart, which involves calibration again. GREAT game though, let hope the developers add online play at some point, as this is clearly the best and cheapest darts game on the PS3.

anyone else had any probs

Dont have issues with calibration personally, I take my time :)

Just got this game yesterday, enjoying it so far despite its difficulty. I'm better in real life than I am ingame, and I reckon thats the only game I can say that about :D My only criticism so far is the voice over. I love Sid Waddell but they only recorded like 5 phrases lol.

Great fun though!

 

 

Edit: This and Hustle Kings tie for the best £6.29 you could spend on your PSN collection!

I think it's a good darts game, but the calibration is a bit of an issue for me.

 

I was getting really bad drift until I recalibrated the move controller from the XMB. Now it seems a little more steady, but I have to aim a couple of inches below where I want to hit on the board.

I just don't get this game.  For me, it doens't play well at all, it's just really awkward.

 

I've been trying for a while because it seems to get high rating and good feedback from others but I can't for the life of me get any fun out of it.

 

Aiming is fine but when I "throw" the dart it seems to go wherever it wants unless I throw really really lightly, which just can't be right.

 

I don't think it's a calibration issue because I don't have problems in any other games.

 

Any tips?

 

Also, why does it need to be a two stage thing with the aim and throw?  Surely Move is capable of doing both at the same time.  I think it the game was originally developed for the dualshock, then ported to Move at the last minute.

I pretty much think the same.. If I throw it like a real dart, it always goes higher then I am aiming.. The only way to get it accurate is a gentle lob and htis is nothing like real darts.

 

I have tried everything and can only do OK on the easy level.. But I want it to be a challange, but for me its just a bit random.

Yeah, so gentle that if it was a real dart it would just drop to the floor?

 

Not impressed....
