Anki Overdrive Fast & Furious Limited Edition Set lets you battle against or alongside the Toretto crew as the iconic voices of the Fast & Furious characters add unique personality to every race.
My husband and son are huge fans of the Fast & Furious movies and characters. In fact, last Christmas I gifted to my husband the complete collection of films on Blu-ray. This year, I definitely topped that gift with the help of my friends at Anki Overdrive!
Along with your mobile device, Anki Overdrive pits you against AI Supercars in a pulse-pounding game of speed and strategy. This intelligent battle racing system comes with a multi-configuration racetrack and two self-aware A.I.-powered racecars. You control the vehicles wirelessly via an app on a compatible smartphone or tablet. Pick a supercharged ride for real on-track action, and race or battle against characters from the film (or your friends).
The Anki Overdrive app is free to download and each car only takes about 10 minutes to charge. The track is super easy to connect, though one drawback we found is that the shiny black track attracts and shows pet hair and other particles very easily. Not a toy you want to let your hairy friends around!
Included in the box are 3 straight pieces, 6 curved pieces, a “Power Zone” track piece, a car charger, an elevation piece, guard rails, and 2 cars – Dom’s Ice Charger and Hobbs’ Internation MXT! Anki Overdrive has other expansion packs, bundles, and cars that can be added for even more fun and track configuration options.
What we love about Anki Overdrive Fast & Furious edition is that there are multiple ways to play to the track from the app so it’s not just a boring racing game. There are actually six different game modes that allow you to street race for speed or throw weapons into the mix in battle mode.
You can race your opponent, you can use different weapons to drain opponent’s points, compete in a battle race that combines racing with the use of weapons, play King of The Hill, do a time trial, or battle for control of the Supertruck.
We’ve had so much fun playing, as have the cats, and even my 7year-old is able to use the app to race. Anki Overdrive Fast & Furious is definitely a hot gift for the holiday season and one that is sure to be used well after the holidays are over.
You can order the Anki Overdrive Fast & Furious Limited Edition Starter Kit from Amazon for around $119. You’ll have it well before Christmas, especially if you have Amazon Prime. If you’re really into the film, check out Anki Overdrive’s “Dom’s Mega Track Set” bundle!
