Excerpt: From the live action toy series called "Nerf" comes Nerf N-Strike for the Nintendo Wii that actually gives the gamer a real-world Nerf gun which not only fires real Nerf darts but can also be used on the game as a console gun. How cool is that? Although aimed at the younger gamer, Nerf N-Strike features a variety of different gameplay modes and multiplayer options for players to engage in some great virtual Nerf battles.
Excerpt: NERF N-Strike comes packaged with a well made gun (for multiplayer and those without the game, it can also be purchased separately) to house your Wii remote in, just as you can do with the Wii Zapper and its cheaper knockoffs. It’s very comfortable and feels nice and weighty to grasp, and for those who are still at the age where shooting foam bullets at each other is their idea of a good time, then the gun even doubles up as an actual NERF gun.
Conclusion: Overall, I really enjoyed the experience in NERF: N-Strike Elite. The game is fun while it lasts and the separate dart gun works well at pestering your friends, co-workers, significant others, pets, siblings, etc. However, after doing a little bit of price pointing, I found that you could buy both copies of the Wii House of the Dead games as well as a NERF pistol and a NYKO Perfect Shot for the same price as this bundle.
Excerpt: NERF certainly has come a long way. From its origins as a football designed to protect uncoordinated kids trying to play catch from breaking their noses, it has evolved into an entire array of kid-safe toys including relatively safe and non-violent weaponry. NERF's evolution continues in N-Strike Elite which integrates NERF's real-world toy guns into a virtual world in which spunky tweens use the power of NERF weapons to stop a robot army.
Summary: Nerf: N-Strike Elite features a classic rail shooter style of gameplay and equips players with a cache of fresh features. With the Wii Remote snapped into the Nerf Switch Shot EX-3 blaster and the red reveal lens engaged, players can detect enemy weak spots, solve puzzles and decode secret messages as they blast their way to victory.
Summary: Parents need to know that the majority of this game has to do with shooting. But these are Nerf fantasy guns with soft tips. This Wii game comes bundled with an accessory that makes an actual Nerf N-Strike gun into a gun controller by slipping the Wii remote into a special compartment in the gun.
Excerpt: NERF N-Strike is the epitome of the phrase ’mixed bag’; you would be hard pressed to find another game that can be so enjoyable on one hand, yet a little underwhelming on the other. Then again, very few games are as unique as NERF N-Strike (NS from now on) in that you’re getting two different games in one. You see, NS comes packaged with an actual NERF gun similar to what you would expect if you bought one from a toy store.
