  1. I never expected shooting loads of foam darts would be such fun. NERF could have been a run of the mill on the rails shooter but the inclusion of loads of varied game styles make this a winner for the whole family.
  2. A decent blast for younger gamers and we like that NERF gun!

    The toy inside the box seems to be the winner in this bundle pack – the gun is a much better gun than the Wii game is a game, but the software isn’t all that bad either.
  4. A neat package for Nerf fans, but it doesn't have the looks or lustre to score high. [Apr 2009, p.62]
  5. A bit dull. [Apr 2009, p.68]
  6. Nerf N-Strike brings you all the action of the real NERF gun with a 3D shoot'em up on rails dedicated to the younger audience and everybody who wants to play a clean, simple and futuristic game.
  7. A shooting game for the Wii aimed at a younger audience and based on the joy of toy guns does sound like a match made in heaven. Unfortunately this is a prime example of an interesting concept hampered by poor execution. Initially you've got access to a number of mini games, some good, some bad. When you master these you unlock harder versions of these mini games. The gun that ships with the game works well, but the overall experience is too bland an uninspiring to be recommended to anyone.

    Nerf N-Strike is a guilty pleasure of a first person shooter. I got it for my birthday, and I thought it was going to be stupid. It actually turned out to be my favorite first person shooter. I would recommend this to anyone who likes a good shooter. Expand

    A shooter for younger kids, while I can see how younger kids could enjoy this and parents approve the game It was pretty underwhelming. The whole game you are shooting darts at blocks and robots, and I was never a fan of on rail fps'. You can basically call this a Minigame playing game. The story mode isn't all that exciting either. You still play mini games and once you beat every chamber you fight the boss... Well that's what the game said, basically what you do is play a mini game and beat the other persons score. No shooting each other. Expand
