OK, so I bought these as a laugh for some indoor, foam-based fun. I already had a NERF Raider, so I thought I knew what to expect. These are actually slightly more powerful than the Raider, and also the sticky darts are great. I was originally worried about looking like an idiot whilst wearing the vest, but since I only use these in the confines of my house, this is no issue. On the value front, these are great: Two blasters, with six darts each for less than a blaster like the Raider. You may think twelve darts isn't much, but it is when you're picking them up after a tense shootout. Build quality isn't the greatest, it's effectively Chinese plastic and Chinese foam, but this is to be expected for children's toy guns. Reliability is respectable, however sometimes darts do pea-roll out of the somewhat unsubstantial barrel. But great fun, especially if you're twice the age of the target audience!
