Product Description: Anki Overdrive Fast and Furious Edition
Now you can gear up to race the Fast & Furious family with this Anki Overdrive Fast and Furious Edition. Use your mobile device to battle the Toretto crew, race high-tech robotic Supercars like Dom’s Ice Charger and Hobbs’ MXT, and upgrade with weapons inspired by the movies. Four character personalities can be chosen, each with their own unique racing and combat elements, making them deadly opponents on the track. DOM is faster than everyone in his Ice Charger. If you win, it’s because he let you. HOBBS drives like he fights, bringing his monstrous MXT down on his foes. LETTY is fierce in a fight and adept at using the loot she wins in battle. TEJ is fast, but prefers to run interference, hacking cars and playing puppet master.
Extensive upgrade system
So easy to change track configuration
Nice new themed vehicles
Single-player action versus clever AI
Battles and time trials add variety
Not cheap to expand
Should You buy Anki Overdrive Fast and Furious Edition?
Like the original Anki Overdrive, this is a whole heap of tyre-screeching fun, whether you’re playing on your own or with family and friends. And this edition is given extra character via the movie-themed app and recognisable cars. Whether it’s worth the price premium over the standard edition will obviously depend on whether the Fast & Furious movies matter to you, or how much you like the bundled vehicles and new Power Zone feature.
Add-on track sections seem a little expensive at first glance, but it’s worth remembering that you don’t need multiple sections abreast to use more than two cars, as you do with traditional slot-racing systems from the likes of Scalextric and Carrera.
The additional cars appear pricey, but they’re packed with tech that helps them get around the track and be recognised individually within the app. It’s just a shame there are none that are more like realistic scale models rather than cartoon supercars.
With the additions that Anki has made to the Overdrive system over the years, this is now one of the finest physical games you can buy.
