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). If the developers had chosen one clear course of action and developed either a pure racer or a
style kiddie racing game, we might have had a better game on our hands here.
Pros: Attractive graphics, Online play
Cons: Blur, is schizophrenic: the aptly named “Bizarre Creation” clearly couldn’t decide what they wanted to shoot for here., Extremely annoying to lead for the entire game, only to be blown away by the computer in a cheap last second save. Lazy developing at its worst.
Excerpt: Viruses really are the bain of a PC user’s life. Get one and you’re guarenteed to spend hours deleting files, losing documents and inevitably either losing all your valuable files, resinstalling the Operating System or spending inordinant amounts of time fixing the problems. If only you could climb into the computer and physically kill the virii one by one in open warfare, wouldn’t that be good?
Summary: Blur pledges kart-style racing for adults with its combat-infused gameplay mixed with beautifully rendered supercars. But, if you can't release your inner child and dive into some online hijinks, you might have a hard time enjoying this one.
