NERF N-Strike Review

Friendly blasting action...

We'll be honest, when this turned up at the office we initially spent more time playing with the NERF gun that comes in the box than the game itself.

After all, it came out of nowhere and is based on toy guns - surely it'd be a waste of time? It turns out, once we actually put the Remote into the gun and started playing it, it's actually not a bad little game.

With 22 different mini-games on offer (all of which are presented in a sort of arcade light-gun style), some decent graphics and a wide variety of different guns on offer, it's entertaining enough for a period of time.

It's much better suited to younger gamers because it doesn't pose much of a challenge, but that's not to say it's not enjoyable. Especially the mini-game which is pretty much a direct lift from another EA favourite, Boom Blox.

If you see this cheap enough it'd make a nice purchase for a younger gamer - and it comes with a NERF gun for real-life sharp shootin'.

    Woo! first comment
    i think most people will buy this game just to get the NERF gun, EA could start a franchise with this game though, if they decide to make a sequel they could make the game harder and make the levels different (but not too different) from each other.
