Nerf N-Strike Review

nerf n strike wii game
Nerf N-Strike will keep young kids entertained for hours, but if your gaming preferences skew more towards Call of Duty than Pokemon, youll likely get bored rather quickly.
At its core, Nerf N-Strike for the Wii is a light gun rail shooter. Rail shooters are rather rare these days, so if you do happen to have a fit of nostalgia for the days of arcade gaming, then N-Strike might just satisfy you. And hey, any video game that comes with a Nerf gun is guaranteed a certain level of awesome, so you cant go too wrong by picking up this game.
Additionally, the fact that the Nerf gun that comes with the game (the Switch Shot EX-3) doubles as a Wii remote, adds an element of fun. The gun works really really well as a remote, and its pretty amazing that the Switch Shot is also a pretty decent Nerf gun in its own right (note that it can also be purchased separately).
There are a number of different game modes in Nerf N-Strike. One mode has you fending off charging robots. Another requires you to shoot giant rolling balls enough times that they explode before they hit you. However, by far the best gameplay mode is one in which you have to shoot a big stack of blocks to find a target inside. This gameplay mode will bring back memories of Boom Blox, as you want to knock out the blocks and hit the target in as few shots as possible.
In singleplayer mode, the objective is simple: beat your computer opponents score. The objective remains the same in multi-player mode, but its a whole lot more enjoyable to square off against a friend than it is one of the uber-annoying 12-year-old in-game characters.
The characters in Nerf N-Strike will seriously annoy you with their cheesey lines, and to make matters worse, the voice-acting is horrible.
One cool aspect of the game for Nerf fans is that it features many real Nerf guns, as well as many fictitious guns. We have already seen some of the guns from this game become reality, and it would be naive to think that this wont continue to be a trend going forward.
Its also pretty cool that there are 3 types of ammo in N-Strike, and they all behave pretty much like you would expect that they would if they were shot out of a real Nerf gun.
In closing, Nerf N-Strike for the Wii will definitely keep young kids entertained for hours on end, and older Nerf fans may enjoy it in spurts just because its a Nerf video game where you get to use an actual Nerf gun. And I think you have to admit, thats pretty cool.
