3 Seconds of Pure Joy, Then Not

Nerf’s Pulse Rifle is definitely cool. That the display works, and that it has awesome sounds and two types of ammo, totally made me feel like a Colonial Marine, even for a short amount of time.

But at almost $100, this isn’t really a toy you’re going to run around and play with. It’s a display piece. A once in a while thing. And for that, I think it’s less successful. It should come with some kind of easy display stand. And C batteries? That’s very, very annoying. Why not AA or AAA? Something people have around the house.

But the worst part is—there’s no power button (that at least I could find). So when you’re done, the display just stays on, like above. You have to take the batteries out to get it to go off. Which means every time you want to play with it, you need to grab the screwdriver and batteries. Very annoying.

Nevertheless, for those three seconds of glory, it’s almost worth it.
