Review: I have played several darts games in VR and I have to give credit where it is due, ‘VR Darts’ is the best of all of them. But before you rush out to make a purchase I have to tell you why that is not such a good thing. You see, all the others have been utter crap, but ‘VR Darts’ is still crap, but not as bad as the others. But maybe I am being a little too harsh. The game does look good after all with 2 arenas to choose from and 3 game modes on each. It also has a multiplayer mode which is missing from most other dart games. But it still suffers from the same terrible gameplay. It just doesn’t feel realistic enough and many people (like myself) who play darts in real life will notice how hard it is to throw a good arrow. While this is not worth anywhere near the current asking price of £11.39 I would consider picking it up for a quid or two. Sure, its the best of the bunch, but that is not saying much.
