Loads of fun with the Anki OVERDRIVE battling race car kit!

Whether playing against the OVERDRIVE system or with friends and family, OVERDRIVE is full of excitement and will get everyone’s adrenaline pumping!

From Anki “Anki OVERDRIVE is the world’s most intelligent battle racing system. Each Supercar is a self-aware robot, driven by powerful AI, and equipped with their own unique personalities and capabilities from flamethrowers to siren attacks, defense shields to battering rams.”

You vs Machine vs Friends vs Family

My first experience with OVERDRIVE was me vs machine.  After deciding on a layout I quickly began racing again the Overdrive system and was immediately impressed at the intelligence that is built into it.  To prepare for my first race the cars autonomously scanned the track layout and lined up at the starting line.  The countdown began and off we went!  All the normal stuff was there.  I could accelerate, brake and steer but wait, what’s this… I have weapons!  Yes I was able shoot at my opponents and they were able to shoot at me!  With each direct shot I was able to disable my opponents vehicle and pass them and they could do the same to me. This really makes the game a lot more challenging and fun.  Later I introduced OVERDRIVE to both my friends and family and the fun ensued.


Choose Your Vehicle Wisely

Each OVERDRIVE vehicle have different strengths and weapons.  Anki sent me the OVERDRIVE system for review but I liked it so much I bought two more cars, a truck and more tracks.  At first my favorite car was the Skull and I moved around from car to car but kept avoiding the truck I bought. I thought the truck would be fun but slow… I was wrong!  My friend’s 6 year old daughter picked the truck (X52 ICE) and started passing me up and knocked me off the track.  She was unstoppable! Why is this truck so powerful?  After getting beat over and over I checked out the truck on the Anki website and found out it has RAGE MODE!!!  Once it gets to Rage Mode look out!  For more information on each car visit the Anki OVERDRIVE website.
