When I was asked if my boys would like to review the new Light Strike range it was a total no brainer!!! Boys and their toys and all that.
This is what was kindly sent to us to try out:
Light Strike is a super-cool new interactive battle game from WowWee, makers of bestselling toys, Paper Jamz and Robosapien
Light Strike is the first interactive gaming system that brings video games into the real world, live and in colour. Fully customisable with built-in weapon choices and slots to attach accessories, players can make tactical decisions to add new features and functions on the go. Interactive light and sound effects put you in the middle of combat, creating exciting ever-changing battle scenarios!
We were sent 2 of the Light Strike Assault Strikers, 4 of the add-ons (enemy scanner, machine gun bi pod, refractor launch and scope) and a Light Strike ITS to try out.
Yes all of this, much to my boys absolute delight. They delved in straight away and unpacked everything. Then we sorted the batteries and in true boy fashion ( I don’t need the instructions……they were off). Then they decided to check out the instructions that I had thankfully kept hold of.
Anyway here they are in action, testing the noise, the aim, the strategy and ultimately who can win!!! They are boys after all, the alfa male gene kicked in.
So here’s the technical bit:
