Probably the best home laser tag system
16 July 2018
Probably the best home laser tag system out there. I had previously used a system made by Wowee that is now out of production. The problem with a lot of these systems, which don't really use lasers of course, but actually use infrared technology, is that for indoor use there were problems because the light would bounce off walls, doors, etc meaning you could shoot people without even being in the same room or pointing the gun at them. This still happens with this system, but in my experience, less so than with rival systems. The guns connect to the chest detector, which is where the batteries go. The chest plate registers hits as does the gun, with changing colours indicating how many lives you have left. The 'voice coach' aspect, where a voice from the chest plate says 'come on' etc and tells you when you are hit is novel to start with, but I find it a bit tiresome after a while, and it prevents stealthy play, although there is a headphone jack if you want to use it. The guns are relatively robust and quite sci-fi looking. My kids are enjoying this system more than the previous one we had. Overall, pretty good, although a bit pricey if you want to have more than two players. Also check out the long-range blaster, available as a separate gun, but beware that it is overpowered compared to the blasters in this two pack.
