I think I prefer this new version of the Dart Tag system to the old one as the cocking/arming system is easier to use on this one as opposed to the previous one, as this one allows you to keep the gun steady as you are arming it to allow for quicker firing.
As in the previous incarnation you get some funky UVA/UVB goggles (kid size only so don't even try you adult kids), scoring vests which as pointed out in another review are a tad on the small side for us bigger "kids".
Also in this new version you have two different coloured guns and darts, so it is easy to identify who shot where, then the fun part of playing hunt the darts starts and can easily take as long if not longer than the original shooting itself.
Overall still a fun game and I can see many days of fun ahead especially with summer coming up.
I have always enjoyed team combat games, especially ones where accuracy at a distance is a key factor. As such, I have always enjoyed Nerf toys of all varieties, but especially their guns.
As with the last set, this set comes with two guns, sets of eyewear, two scoring vests, and 20 rounds of ammo... unlike the previous set though, these rounds come 10 each of two colours, so you know who fired what and where. (Thus, you also know who can aim and who couldn't hit the side of a bus with a barn door! )
The vests are still sized for up-to-teenage kids, because on a more 'robust' adult frame they looked more like enlarged pocket-protectors... but then, we may be big kids, but we aren't actually kids... such a shame. In the end it was easier to wear a sweatshirt that the darts could stick to, and just guesstimate the scoring. Funnily enough, the little kids always seemed to score well enough to win.
Now, I must say that one thing is apparent with *all* Nerf battles... chasing your opponents down and shooting them into submission is only half the game... the other half is taking an hour playing hide'n'seek with all the darts... BIG HINT! Green darts on freshly-mown lawn are REALLY HARD TO FIND! So be very careful where you fire them.
The Furyfire guns are quite nifty... more of a 10-round pump-action revolver. Personally, I would have prefered more of a magazine-feed system, but this was simple enough... you load from the front of the chamber as it revolves... keep pulling the trigger after inserting a dart to make it spin one chamber at a time.
Overall, this is a good re-release of this amazing game. Though it comes with rules for 'official' games, the best fun is always to be had by making up your own rules as you play... just load up, and go have a blast! Oh, but by far the nicest surprise came from the realisation that not only do these guns hold the darts very well even when running around, but the suction-tipped darts that come in the Tactical Light mission pack woirk wonders in these guns, making for a great way to pass down-time in the office shooting targets drawn on nearby whiteboards.
