A few weeks ago, Toys R Us asked if we wanted to review a Nerf N Strike Elite Mega Centurion gun. For anyone that knows us personally, they will know that we love Nerf.
We have about 8 of the Nerf guns already, and we have Nerf Wars at friends houses (yes we are a little bit crazy about Nerf)
So of course, we jumped at the chance.
The Nerf gun arrived in a large box and the kids were very excited.
The Nerf gun was simple to put together, a few clicks of things into place, and you are away.
What is different about this gun to the others?
It is called the ‘Mega' after all, and it is huge.
We all loved it.
Easy to load the darts into the gun. Easy to fire.
With other Nerf guns we have the bullets can get stuck (jammed) in the gun very easily. With the Nerf N Strike Elite Centurion Mega this has only happened once in the two weeks we have been playing with it (a lot), I was quite impressed.
Because it is so large, it comes with its own stand that can be taken off, which works very well.
The darts fly very far, which is a lot of fun.
The downside? The size of the darts. They are significantly larger than the usual Nerf bullets, I guess this is because the gun is larger and they go further, but it would have been nice to be able to use the darts we have already instead of buying new ones (the gun does come with 6 darts) but you generally loose them and need more.
On the Hasbro website it says 'with a range of 100 feet' That seems quite far for a Nerf gun, so we tested how far they fly (check out the video)
The gun currently retails at £37.49 from Toys R Us and I would happily pay this for the gun.
Toys R Us sent the Nerf N Strike Elite Centurion Mega to us to review, all thoughts are own own and we have been 100% honest.
