Do you know what makes Christmas more enjoyable? Easy, simple, fun toys that you know will make you the coolest mom in the neighborhood! The new Laser X laser tag game from NSI is THE toy to have this Christmas season – and it is year round fun, inside or out!
NSI’s Laser X is a new form of laser tag with a new comprehensive system. You can use it inside or out, playing during the day or at night. The voice coach tells you how well you are doing, keeps tracks of your shots, and tells you when to recharge. You can play teams or just go rogue and play against everyone else in the group. Laser X features sophisticated electronics and optics that give players pinpoint blasting accuracy up to 200 feet.
Laser tag has been a hit for all ages for as many years as I can remember. It is just one of those games that will never be boring or old, especially as technology advances and companies like NSI find new ways to make the game even better.
We received the set for two. Laser X comes with one or two receiver vests that you place on your chest depending on which set you purchase. But what I love most about these is that no matter which set or how many you purchase, every individual or double set can be played with together. So, say you have 4 kids, or even buy a set for the neighborhood kids or a birthday party, all of the sets will work together!
The blaster beam is infrared, so no visible beam is emitted – but it does have a neat shot sound effect each time you shoot. To “reload” you simply point the gun at the ground and go again. The whole set feels solid and has a decent weight to it. This makes it feel like a sturdy item vs a cheap plastic toy. That is really important for us when it comes to buying a gift.
The gun takes 3 AAA batteries which is nice because most people have those on hand without having to go and find special kinds of batteries when they need to be replaced.
One thing I really thought was neat and different about this system – the sensors. Generally, when you get a laser tag game, you will find the sensors on the end or sides of the gun. With Laser-X the sensor is on the vest and really makes more sense because you are then aiming for the person playing vs. their gun. You can play in teams or you can go rouge and its every kid (or adult) for themselves!
It is a fun, energetic game that can be played indoors or outdoors, day or night. I think that adds to the appeal, because no matter what the weather, you can play the game and keep the kids entertained. I think the price point is also reasonable considering if you were to go and play 3 games of laser tag at a local arcade, you would spend as much or more.
Overall, we had a blast with these laser tag guns and I think anyone who is looking to make a purchase of a game that will keep kids entertained for hours, this is what you need!
