As many of you know, a few weeks ago, I was able to attend the EA (Play Label) Blogger Day. While there, I was there, one game I was not expecting to enjoy that much was NERF N-Strike Elite. It follows up on the story of the original NERF N-Strike, where 2 players can fully cooperate through the first-person on-rail levels with a choice of 4 characters.
