Thsi is one of the most realistic games ive ever played! Yes, it takes a while to begin with. When i started, it took me 10 minuets to throw 3 darts! But over time, as you practice more you get better, just like real life. Untill finally you hear the announcer say 180!!!!!!!!!! Not for the impatient who play for half an hour get frustrated and walk away. But if youve got the patience you pick it up after some practice and it really is a great game.
