About Judy

As WP's senior 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 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 rapturous fan reaction to the inclusion of 10 real world darts professionals in last year's critically and commercially successful PDC World Championship Darts, Oxygen Interactive is raising the bar further for its forthcoming PDC World Championship Darts 2008 by increasing the number of real-life darts legends to 16!

The first 10 to be announced include Phil "The Power" Taylor — the greatest player ever to throw a dart, winning his 13th World Championship title in 2006 — and Raymond "The Man" van Barneveld, the current World Champion who defeated Taylor in the greatest ever final in January 2007.

Also starring in the game are: Colin "Jaws" Lloyd (the number one player in the world in 2004 and 2005, winning two major titles along the way); Peter "One Dart" Manley (double World Champion); John "Darth Maple" Part (from Canada); and the ever-popular Wayne "Hawaii 501" Mardle.

The initial 10 professionals are:

  • Phil "The Power" Taylor
  • Raymond "The Man" van Barneveld
  • Peter "One Dart" Manley
  • Wayne "Hawaii 501" Mardle
  • Dennis "The Menace" Priestley
  • Adrian "Jackpot" Lewis
  • Alan "The Iceman" Warriner-Little
  • John "Darth Maple" Part
  • Colin "Jaws" Lloyd
  • Mark "Flash" Dudbridge

Go head-to-head with the greatest PDC Champions and be part of the year's most fierce console Championship with PDC World Championship Darts 2008, releasing on Nintendo Wii, PlayStation 2 and PC alongside the staging of the 2008 Ladbrokes.com World Championship Darts Championship in December 2007.

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 Nintendo Wii fans, PDC World Championship Darts 2008 will be bringing the spectacle and excitement of the nation's best loved sport to your home this Christmas.
