Sega Presents Touch Darts (DS)
This stylised representation of the sport seems a perfect fit for quick on-the-go gaming and comes complete with tournament modes and a Wi-Fi multiplayer feature. Said to accurately replicate the throwing of a dart by using the stylus on the touch-screen we remain sceptical yet hopeful, mainly because Sega is willing to put its name behind it. The extrovert characters suggest it'll be a lot of fun and there's also ten mini-games included in the package. Not sure if its going to be worth full price status but if it's more refined and accurate than the darts game included in Nintendo's 42 All-Time Classics then we'll be the first up to the oche.

In all there's 6 levels containing 17 stages and visually it looks so-so. The combat is robust enough and one feature that could save it from its almost inevitable consignment to the dustbin of mediocrity is the inclusion of a 4-player co-op mode allowing you to go through the entire game with three other friends
