Excerpt: Is it me or has the gaming industry lost its head? No racing in eight months followed by a hurricane month of racing games. If you developers want to share revenue I won’t mind giving you my account number.
could have been a decent, if humdrum racer if left as just that. Unfortunately, Bizarre Creations lived up to their moniker and wound up with a Frankenstein monster of a game which tries too hard to please everyone (and winds up pleasing no one).

When Blur was announced, I was very excited to get my hands on a racer that was created to capture the car combat elements of games like Twisted...
Excerpt: The best way to describe Blur, a new game from the developers of Project Gotham Racing, is basically this: Blur is a gateway drug for everyone tiring of the kart-racing shtick. Having not heard too much about Blur prior to its release, I opened the box knowing only that it was developed by Bizarre...
