Honestly, I thought this was going to be a crack at a COD for kids type deal, I mean it would make sense. To be clear it’s a very simple shooter that plays as such. The NERF guns do look awesome mind each has a unique feel and reloading animation but all you have is your NERF guns. You can carry two and a pistol along with a melee weapon so there is a lot of choices but it’s just bizarre, I mean you have no grenades or big powerful weapons and when the enemies are full-on bullet sponges it does make it all quite tedious for you seem to be made of glass. I can see the ideas in here I really can, they add in different modes like horde or boss fights so it does mix it up but it’s just tedious. The gunplay is just OK but the actual movement is solid and actually really good that’s what makes it all quite annoying. The game is fine for kids in groups of friends or players who want a more simpler approach to shooters. For me, NERF is a miss but it came so close to being a good thing.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
