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: In the gaming world, it is becoming increasingly common for games to cross the traditional boundaries in which they have so long existed. This not only affects games that jump genres, but also games that meld sub-genres. Enter Blur , the recently released racing title from Bizarre Creations. Blur is two parts Forza and three parts Mario Kart , blurring (if you'll excuse the pun) the lines between a serious racing simulation and an arcady racing platform.

  • 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: Blur answers the long-contemplated question: What would happen if a speeding Renault dropped a land mine in front of a gaining Nissan at 130mph? The answer is, of course, a massive wreck, but it’s only now that Blur has merged the real-life cars from Project Gotham Racing with the over-the-top weapons more commonly found in the cartoony Mario Kart series that such questions can finally be laid to rest forever.
  • Pros: Driving is smooth and responsive, Weapons add a burst of energy to the standard racing action, Rewards system makes game difficult to put down, In-depth multiplayer mode is easy to lose hours to, Wide variety of tracks and cars
  • Cons: Split-screen mode is stripped, Level cap is too low in single-player
