You'd think that awarding the same company the coveted 'Best Car' badge for three years in a row would be a tough decision, but actually it's been a complete no brainer. Anki Overdrive, including the new Supertrucks expansion, is the best toy car product on the market by a long way.
Last year, when Anki Overdrive won the title for their amazing slot-together track and AI cars, we couldn't imagine how it could possibly be improved upon. When we met the Supertrucks, we were well and truly educated as to how!
These trucks look like beasts next to the cars, and at first we weren't sure how it could be a fair fight between the two. We soon realised, however, that whilst the trucks have the advantage of size, they are actually slower than the cars in general. That is, until they go into 'rage' mode. Oh how we love rage mode! It's so aptly named, as the truck lights up and starts careering round the track at a phenomenal pace, destroying any vehicle in its wake. With the trucks also comes 'takeover' mode, where players compete to take control of the supertruck and overpower all the other competitors.
Children love this, adults love this and it's one of the cleverest, more enduring and most entertaining toys we've ever seen.
What our reviewers said: "These trucks are AMAZING. They charge on the same charger as the cars and I can't believe they can whip round the corners the way they do!" "We love playing Anki - we have a family tournament once a week now and take turns to have the supertruck".
