Summary: If you like Mario Kart Wii, this is a decent game that plays in a similar way. The Wii controls are much better, I definitely miss the steering wheel with this game. This game is much more "serious" than Mario Kart.
Summary: I bought this game for my husband for his birthday. I expected it to come late, and warned him that part of his gift would be late. I was pleasantly surprised when it showed up ON his birthday! The game was in excellent condition, and my husband is having great fun with it.
Summary: Some people reviewed this game saying it's a hard game. It's really not. I am a 21 year old girl and i found it to be simple and fun and easy to master. It IS like mario cart with the fact that you use the power ups to take out other people or slow them down, but it's much cooler because it's more realistic and not cartoony. FUNN. Try it!
Summary: It plays good, although the AI opponents are pretty easy to beat, and just dont seem very realistic. Still a fun game though. Graphics are great as well. Trying to play 4 player split screen is what knocks off a star. 2 player is doable with a keyboard and a controller, but even with ther different controllers, it wont recognize them, and when it does, you control multiple peoples car with one controller sometimes. It is seriously bugged in multiplayer.
Summary: While playing the game you will quickly understand why this is fun: it's something different, which is something hard to accomplish in the racing genre. It's not as aggressive Burnout but not as theatrical as Split/Second either. As always, there's room for improvement (ie: more diverse customization and an actual story line) but the concept was introduced successfully.
Summary: Just as the title describes, I would consider this game to be the closest thing to mario cart, when it comes to modern day car racing games. Playing Blur on the PS3 is excellent. The quality of the game is great, the effects are great, and it has an overall great experience - BEST OF ALL it has the options for power ups, sheilds, you can shoot other players, or place lightning strikes in the middle of the course that shock the other players as they go through (among...
Summary: I finally purchased this game. ( I wait for prices to drop) I have both PS3/360 slims and Forza 2/3 and Wipeout are my favorite racers. Blur is a really good game. I still enjoy Mario Kart so Blur being about the same thing is a lot of fun to play. I still laugh at the commercial of Blur dissing Mario Kart. Anyway, the game is fun to play, I like the graphics, cars, and tracks. It's fun to play a more simple game that I can jump into.

Summary: A number of my peers have compared this game to Super Mario kart and while I understand where they are coming fro, Blur is most definitely not Super Mario Kart. While Blur utilizes a power-up system with similar elements such as forward and rear firing weapons, shields and speed boosts, this is a different game. Blur is a game that uses models of actual cars from Ford, Chevrolet, Audi and others in an environment that attempts to appear quasi-realistic.
