Summary: Let me preface this by saying that I'm a fan of the racing genre. I've been playing games the NFS and Gran Turismo games since they debuted more than a decade ago. That being said, blur doesn't deserve to be mentioned in the same sentence. It'll hold your attention for a couple hours, but only until you realize that it doesn't get better. Quite the opposite. I suppose it can be alright for the casual player but that's about it.
Summary: Almost perfect, but falls short in all around game. Pro's- Looks good Easy to learn Mario Kart for adults Online is Good A lot to do Con's- Gets a little hard as you progress Way too many hard requirements Old too fast The game is still great, but after a few days the repetiveness and crazy things you have to do catches up. must rent game. If you like the hard stuff, this game is for you.
Summary: This seems to be a racing season. A number of new racing games have been or are to be released. But not all GTs are created equal. Only last week I was playing Split/Second and now the long awaited BLUR is out. Since both games are more Arcade-racers than Simulators, I decided to do a side-by-side review. What BLUR has over SPLIT/SECOND: (a) Licensed cars. Fantasy cars look great but it is always more satisfying to drive real supercars.
