One for the rubber lovers among us, this brings the real-life toy arsenal into the digital world. No, you’re not rolling around back gardens taking cover behind gnomes and sagging paddling pools. This leans into the story of the Nerf world, so you’re battling robots in a science-fiction land of the future, while pulling off trick shots using weapons based on Nerf toys, and we’re promised 19 levels of blasting.
As well as multiplayer that supports 4v4 and eight-person free-for-all (which you can play as your own custom avatar), it’s got a solid campaign mode where you shoot your way through a futuristic story, which is more than Battlefield 2042 can say. Just play nice, and don’t make your little brother cry.
