Hasbro Nerf Lazertag
With Nerf’s 2PK Lazertag System, you can finally have your own intense laser battles at home with your friends!
The two Phoenix LTX taggers mentioned above have plenty of sounds and movement keeping you battles interesting and exciting. Your gun recoils, rumbles and reloads while you enjoy fun playing the game, aiming at your opponent and getting score.
Because the Hasbro Nerf Lazertag System 2PK is designed and suitable for ages eight and up, this is a great and affordable way to please even your younger kids at Christmas 2010. Since the guns have range of about 400 feet, it’s no problem to play in a large garden or wherever you wish to.
This Hasbro toy is a great fun for kids and even adults. There are fests where people get together and play in two teams, 20 players each. With growing number of people playing, the Lazertag System 2PK becomes even more entertaining.
Summary of Lazertag System 2PK pros
Range – These taggers (guns) have a range of about 350-400 feet, maybe further (maybe a bit less in bright sun).
Fun – It is a blast, especially in groups. This really is for adults as well as kids, and if you get a group of people together to do this, you will have a blast. There are many videos of people playing with the
Lazertag System 2PK and previous generations on Youtube. Have a look at the section about the Phoenix LTX taggers to see one video comprehensively describing how the taggers work.
Educational – Eventhough the Lazertag System 2PK is a shooter game, it still has something to teach you – like basic strategy, teamwork, tactics and even younger will start to pick up some of these concepts.
Accessories – There is already a shotgun attachment developed, as well as a green dot site. These slide on to connectors on the tagger to give additional capabilities. There are also rumors of more weapon attachments in the pipeline. There also used to be an accessory for playing video game (1 vs computer on a TV), but it turned to be pretty useless and you probably won’t see this feature anymore. If you play with the older LTTO style taggers, you can actually join games hosted by the older taggers.
Featuring the Phoenix LTX taggers
Features – These Phoenix LTX taggers of the Lazertag System 2PK have several features to enhance the playability.
a) 10 or 25 tags – There is a switch that allows you to set your “hit points” at 10 or 25 tags. This is helpful for balancing some scenarios where differences in numbers, experience or even age may make the game unfair.
b) Indoor/outdoor mode – this helps reduce the sensitivity of the receivers – reduces splash damage you get while playing inside. The IR signal can reflect off walls and make it pretty easy to take hits, even around corners and off your clothing.
c) Accessory connectors for more options
d) Realistic reload – There is also a copy of an ammo clip, you can control this by “faking “clip” out of the bottom of the grip.
e) realistic recoil – there is a hammer that lights up and pops out a little with each shot, and also a vibration with each shot/hit that add to the experience.
Exercise – Depending on your gameplay style, you can get as much exercise out of it as you want. The range on these guns is hundreds of feet (a bit less in full sunlight), so you can easily get winded running around inside the playable area.
Durability/Battery life (cost of ownership) – The Lazertag guns are very rugged – if you compare the cost of the system with a commercial lazer tag rental facility - if you buy the Lazertag System 2PK, you will “make” your money back in a couple of sessions of playing, and the Phoenix LTX taggers last a long time. Battery life is also very good – eventhough the batteries are rechargeable (which usually means it is a little less effective, but much cheaper in the long run), the batteries don’t have to be recharged throughout several sessions of playing.
Review of online Lazertag System playing
Online Communities – Very active online community (there’s several newsgroups including an active one on Yahoo, search for ‘Lazer Tag Team Ops’). The user community and the available technical information on the web opens the door for tech-minded to tear them down and ‘mod’ them to give them additional features. You may have to solder some stuff, clip some wires, or similar, but some of this is pretty cool.
Interaction with others – You can play team-based games of 2 teams. This Hasbro Nerf game hasn’t any limits, you can play for example 20 vs 20, no problem. The more people playing, the funnier the Lazertag System 2PK is.
Don't miss the chance to get the Hasbro Nerf Lazertag 2PK system for Christmas 2010 with for the discounted price now.
