    Totally awesome and great customer support

    • Written by from Apple Valley

    Super fun!!! This is the new age of of reality app games meets slot car racing. My 5 and 7 year old were playing and having fun in minutes. Customer care was watching my order and realized it may not get here before Christmas and shipped a second starter kit overnight just to make sure it would. I had an issue with one of the first cars. Emailed support and got a call within minutes. They sent out a new car super quick plus a bonus. This has been a great purchase and I couldn't imagine better service/support.

    Incredible

    • Written by from Creswell

    People were laughing when they found out my dad got these for us "kids." At 25 & 27, this is one of the coolest presents we've received!! They have been a blast and are just incredible! We've had friends and family over for the past few days and EVERYONE has thoroughly enjoyed playing with our new toys. The cars drive amazingly smooth, even on carpet. One of the best things about this product is that the car abilities can easily be upgraded as the company grows and improves their already amazing software. VERY happy with their entire line :)

    Very Addictive!

    • Written by from Buckeye

    This was a hit at Christmas. All ages were engaged. The older adults could not believe that the young family members were able to play a game that looked so advanced. I heard comments like "I feel like I am at a ride at Disney World". If you can afford to, I highly suggest you get all 4 vehicles.

    Modern Slot Cars

    • Written by from Ladera Ranch

    Got this for Christmas from my wife. All I can say is - AMAZING. My 5 year old son and I have yet to put it down. We are having so much fun playing and challenging each other. The technology of the cars and track are amazing too and make for a wonderful game play that is very addicting. I would recommend this to anyone one.

    Awesome

    • Written by from Fort Saskatchewan

    Best game ever. Period. For those giving this one star because it's "boring" go back to wasting time in front of your playstation or whatever. This game takes the best of both worlds and creates an augmented reality experience that has, in my opinion, yet to be surpassed. The controls are easy to figure out, and as long as you keep the mats and tires clean the cars don't tend to spin out much. Having said that, they're not supercomputers, so one has to expect a couple of hiccups. I found these to be relatively minor and they add a bit of humor to the game. The mat rolls up for easy storage and even the box looks good! This game is a must for anyone who likes to try new things and has an imagination!

    A genuinely new experience in gaming & interactivity

    • Written by from Stanford

    Having played video games for some 30 years, I have been thrilled by the "video game in the real world" experience offered by Anki Drive. By being able to perceive and control physical cars on a real track, this game offers more challenges, depth and nuances that I've been able to experience on a computer/console game. The differences in car characteristics call for a variety of strategies that are different for each vehicle - there is a lot more fun, replayability and depth than meets the casual eye. Needless to say, my kids are also riveted.

    All in all an immensely exciting and genuinely fresh new experience in gaming and interactivity.

    We love it!

    • Written by from Lancaster

    My wife and I bought this and love it. I am a little old to enjoy it so much, but I loved it so much, my mother-in-law got me the another car for Xmas!

    As an engineer, I can really appreciate all the work that went into this, and can only imagine the iterations - but Anki nailed it. I a excited to see what the future of consumer robotics will bring. This is just a taste.

    Great fun

    • Written by from Marietta

    all eight grandkids loved it. even the five month old couldn't keep her eyes off the cars flying around the track. I like the size of the cars. thought they were about the size of match box/hot wheels, but they are bigger and quite well made.

    the fun is just beginning

    Creative and original concept-super fun for all ages!

    • Written by from Deatsville

    Bought this as a last minute, extra Christmas surprise that I hoped the entire family would enjoy. Shipping was super fast and the components are well packaged in a box you can use for storage when it is not in use. Thanks to the other reviews, which I had read prior to purchasing, I understood that each car/driver must go through an orientation process that would take at least 10 minutes each. This process was painful waiting time for the kids but critical to the success of the game and those who paid attention quickly became leaders as the real races began. Once the orientation was done, my husband and I quickly took the game away from the kids and raced against each other gleefully. The kids were begging for a turn! I can see the advantage of adding additional cars to increase the competition and family togetherness.

    The cars do run out of charge quickly, but they also recharge very speedily as well. I found that the need to recharge gave me a much needed break from the action and kept me sharper "at the wheel."

    This would also be a cool and entertaining activity at work for celebrations. I foresee an annual tournament and reigning Anki Champion. In a very technology-filled Christmas, this gift received The Most Favorite Gift Award!

    I'm just getting started with it, but it's everything I thought it would be and MORE!

    Can't wait to upgrade my vehicles further.

    Would love to see new tracks come out in the future.

    Great job Apple and Anki!

    Family present and big fun

    • Written by from Oak ridge

    I bought this with the two additional cars for a total of around $340. Sort of a risk as it is one game but it was a family gift and the idea was that family could gather around the track once a week for a night of racing.

    We got the cars charged up, had a little trouble figuring out how to get past the intro screens to setup the cars for a device (the trick is to get them charging and stand near them when you start up the app). Beyond that, we got things going and it was surprisingly easy to race and we had a BALL! My daughter, son and I chased around the track trying to knock each other out until there was a winner. I love this. Space is an issue so I am going to build a wooden track to set on top of a table we have. So worth it though and I look forward to having friends over.

    Another down side though, is that the charger can only charge 3 cars at once, and getting all 4 cars means one car is left out (the separate cars don't come with chargers)

    So yes, we bought it, had fun and I am looking forward to race night at our place.

    Great Family Fun

    • Written by from Baltimore

    Someone else posted "boring after 10 minutes." Well of course...it is a complicated game that requires effort to build skills. It is also best played with friends. That is what makes it exciting! Our 10 and 11 year old kids are very competitive and love it. We love it because they actually want to put down their video games and play in the real world. We also love it because it is FUN! How can you not want vehicles with guns and tractor beams? It's everything you fantasize about when following a slow driver in the fast lane. Great quality parts, a young company that is very responsive on their forum, and a truly unique blast of a game. Good luck Anki!

    Game Night turned into Game Week End

    • Written by from Hollister

    From the Tutorial to the Battle Game Play was great... It's Easy to Learn and Fun to Master and Upgrade using points... All Ages loved it from GrandParents to GrandKids... They did not want to play any other Games... Fours Cars is a must and Four players is Crazy competitive. Play for up to 20 minutes and Then charge for 7 Minutes... then get back in line to play again!

    Pleasantly surprised

    • Written by from Cupertino

    This game is not what you expect. It is definitively more engaging that I first imagined and. The cars charge fairly quickly and the game evolves as you get more points, but highly recommend to buy with friends, solo play would be boring.

    It is great 'out of the box fun' - and that's just the beginning. You keep learning about more and more capabilities...the experience just gets richer and richer (more and more fun). All ages enjoy it...simply hard to put it down.

    As Advertised!

    • Written by from Midvale

    It's not often that the advertising is as good as the product. Great fun as long as you treat the cars and the track as instructed in the manual. I can't wait to race against all of my friends and family. It takes me back to my slot car racetrack when I was 11 years old but without the cars constantly flying off the track plus the addition of lasers, tractor beams and future upgrades! Racing against the A.I. is great fun and is polishing my skills for human opponents.
