Blur (PS3)

  • Excerpt: While some titles like Gran Turismo focus on a real life driving experience, Blur does the opposite, offering a chaotic and somewhat ridiculous driving game. But that's what makes it fun. As stated above, Bizarre Creations didn’t make this game to challenge Shift or Gran Turismo; instead they've made something completely different, and how many people can say that they have seen a 1950’s Ford pickup truck in a racing game? (Let alone one that can go 100 miles an hour.
  • Pros: Fun multiplayer, unique driving experience.
  • Cons: Multiplayer lags once and a while, driving physics feel a little shallow.

  • Excerpt: I didn't like the idea of Blur. Ever since I was told about Bizarre Creations' first game for Activision, I couldn't help but feel disappointed. I love PGR. PGR2 is one of my all-time favourite games and the studio's last game in the series, PGR4, is up there with the best racers available for the Xbox 360. Those titles were all about finding the fine line between precision and style, pitting you and your chosen car against the challenges of real city courses.

  • Excerpt: Ever since racing games began people have been trying to force their opponents off the road in the desire to win. In the late 90′s, as physics engines were significantly improved, we saw the evolution of the “combat racer” from realistic racing games like TOCA and Metropolis Street Racer to futuristic racers such as Carmageddon , Wipeout and Rollcage . Blur makes no bones about its heritage, with its Wild West styled intro and wide array of weapons.

  • Summary: Sold as a retelling of Super Mario Kart, Blur ends up being a solid game on its own merits. The fast-paced races, exciting power-ups and fun online mode aren't marred by a shallow single-player career and a low supply of race tracks. The game's fun online mode more than makes up for any minor issues I have with the game! Tweet This product was submitted by the publisher for review. As a rule, Defunct Games does not review games we spent money on.

  • Conclusion: PC optimization issues and lack of peripheral support aside, Blur is the sweetest car combat game in years.

  • Summary: A powerful combat arcade racer with smooth handling and a slick interface. Good balance of action but some issues hold it back.

  • Excerpt: The realistic visuals and accurately modeled cars may lead you to believe the Blur is an action racing game in the Burnout mold, but this title from Bizarre Creations actually has more in common with Nintendo's iconic Mario Kart series. Relying heavily on power-up icons, it's a fast and enjoyable racer that also shares some genetic DNA with Call of Duty.
  • Pros: Online multiplayer is awesome; in-race goals are fresh and set the game apart from other racers; power-ups allow for strategic depth

  • Excerpt: Having had the chance to review Disney Interactive's racer Split/Second a couple of weeks ago, I was looking forward to my next arcade racing fix. Well I didn't have to wait long as Activision has released their first game produced by Bizarre Creations, who were once responsible for the Xbox exclusive Project Gotham Series. This game, simply titled Blur, races to the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC with a new wrinkle or two in the arcade racer genre.
