      Awesome and fun, but with issues

      The starter system is excellent! When it is working, the blasters are awesome, especially when playing as a group. The recoil feedback sets this apart from many other laser tag sets. It reminds me of the guns in the arcade game Timecrisis. The app is clean and with headphones on, you can easily get engulfed in the game. However, there are issues that may arise with glitches with the app. Sometimes, the app remains stuck on the respawn screen, or it’ll say that you are out of range. However, with the marked down price, it’s hard not to pick up a few. When it works, it is absolutely amazing. I would have given this 5stars if not for those glitches. But still worth getting.

      Didn’t work

      One of the guns didn’t work when we opened it Christmas morning. Nothing like a child’s disappointment on Christmas morning. I purchased it before Thanksgiving and according to the website my return window of the product had expired. I emailed the MFG because no one answered the phones after Xmas. They just now emailed me back on 1/6/18. And told me bluntly that there is no warranty from them so I was SOL and it was a mfg process defect. Well thanks. Luckily my local Best Buy refunded me my money no questions asked. I would avoid this product and company like the plague. I’m sure some of them work great but don’t expect any customer support.

      OMG!! I am a huge fan of war and first person shooter games. This is by far the best invention i have ever seen. I played this in the park at night with a friend because i bought only the starter kit, which comes with two guns and the hub. You can talk to each other even without a headset. Your phone gives you a map of where the enemy is, respawn points and Ammo drops just like in the real games. You can customize your game play and time. I am seriously gonna buy more sets. This is so worth every penny.

      This kit is so cool. Our family purchased the starter set and some extra pistols. We have iPhones and it works great! There is a little bit of setup time getting every one of my kids guns connected and ready to play, but once you're set up, it is like having laser tag in your home. Since it has been extremely cold here, we haven't been able to test out the outdoor modes, but what we have indoors and at our church, it works great!

      Was supposed to be a gift from Santa. Instead, I managed to spent 6 hours of my vacation trying to get this to work. One phone connected to one gun (after 20 minute of cycling through the connect process). Same model phone wouldn't connect to the second gun. Neither would three other phones. Don't bother. Seriously.

      The platform and app execution is well done, but the quality of the build materials and QC is poor. Out of the box, one gun did not work, and the second was intermittent. Adjustment to the battery spring rectified gun 2, but we never were able to get the first to work. Bought the only one on the shelf, so out of luck for us.

      A Blast!

      Instructions for set up are easy to follow and takes about 10 mins. Phone holder is large enough to hold iPhones in cases and iPhone plus size. Sensors work great and the game itself it a blast to play! Completely addicted and highly recommend!
