About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.


'PDC World Championship Darts 2008' (Wii/PS2/PC) Signs More Champs - Screens

PDC World Championship Darts 2008's focus is the intuitive, fluid and accurate throwing dynamics, which are greatly enhanced from last year’s title and specifically tailored for each format, as opposed to direct ports. For even more authenticity, genuine darts’ physics now play a key role; for example, different barrel weights affect player’s throws. PDC World Championship Darts 2008 is based around an in-depth career mode, featuring the seven major tournaments in the PDC calendar, with events taking place in faithfully re-created official PDC tournament venues.

Following on from the ten current darts legends which were included in 2006's PDC World Championship Darts and which are also present in this year's game, Oxygen Games is proud to announce the introduction of an additional six darts professionals in PDC World Championship Darts 2008.

The six new players are:

  • Terry "The Bull" Jenkins, who has moved up to fourth in the world rankings after reaching the finals of four major ranking tournaments in the past year.
  • Ronnie "The Rocket" Baxter, the two-time World Championship runner-up and former World Matchplay finalist.
  • Andy "The Hammer" Hamilton, who joined the professional circuit in 2004 and has since soared up the PDC rankings to reach the World Championship and World Matchplay semi-finals as well as winning his first Pro Tour event in Gibraltar at the beginning of 2007.
  • Andy "Rocky" Jenkins, currently the highest ranked player in the PDC who has yet to appear in a major final, and a semi-finalist at the 2007 World Championship.
  • Kevin "The Artist" Painter, who lost in a sudden-death leg to Phil Taylor in the final of the 2004 World Championship after leading 4-1 in one of the sport's greatest games.
  • Roland Scholten, "The Flying Dutchman" who won the 2004 UK Open and was runner-up in the 2006 Premier League Darts.

Starring even more Champions, the full line up of electrifying tournaments, exceptional graphic enhancements, even more play modes and additional formats - PDC World Championship Darts is back for 2008. Calling on darts, sports and Wii fans, PDC World Championship Darts 2008 is bringing the spectacle and excitement of the nation’s best loved sport to your home in January 2008.
