Blur's combination of real-world vehicles with out-of-this world power-ups makes for an enjoyable racing game. Good Points: A novel twist on the kart racing genre; addictive multiplayer; split-screen option Bad Points: Not for those who are looking...

To help wrap things up, I'll quickly tackle a couple of other minute details I haven't up to now. First and foremost, the control and overall gameplay is quite fluid and fun. Cars react as you'd expect them to (on a per model basis) and...

Blur is a racing game that tries to combine a realistic car racing simulation - real-life cars that take realistic damage on realistic renders of real streets from around the world - with arcade style car-combat sensibilities - power-ups, turbo...

Arcade racing with vehicle combat is not a new idea, but Blur does it well enough to be a fairly strong contender in the genre. The combat in Blur is created by using power-ups placed carefully around the tracks, often in chokepoints. Most of the cars...

There’s something honest about Blur. Where Split/Second flaunts an awkward back-story, and Burnout just doesn’t ever shut the hell up, Blur unashamedly exposes its humble gaming core; a basic game principle balanced with compulsive tactical depth. ...

Blur isn't the addictive, competitive online game that people wanted it to be. Rather, Blur is a palate-cleansing game, the type of experience you pop in for a few minutes with your friends when you're looking for a break between sessions of a...

Beim Betrachten des Fernsehspots von BLUR scheint die Botschaft zu sein, dass es sich um ein Mario Kart für die großen Jungs handelt. Bevor es einen Eklat gibt: Natürlich ist auch Mario Kart für Erwachsene geeignet. Es handelt sich...

Nopeammin, korkeammalle, voimakkaammin. Arcadekaahailuiden kesken käydään tiukkaa kilpailua, jossa vähemmän ei todellakaan ole enemmän. Enemmän autoja, näyttävämpiä ympäristöjä,...

Comic-Racer waren gestern, „Blur“ ist heute – zumindest – wenn Sie realistische Autos haben wollen. Klar ist es nicht jedermanns Sache, mit einem BMW gegen einen Ford zu fahren und sich gegenseitig mit Blitzen und Raketen zu...

International Review By PCMweb on 60

We hebben een heel dubbel gevoel bij Blur. Aan de ene kant vinden we het concept van agressief racen fantastisch. En de uitwerking is ook prima. Echter, het verschil in niveau tussen easy en normal is erg groot. Ook vinden we het lastig dat het niet...

International Review By Zeitgeist Game Review on

All in all, Blur is a pretty damn good racing game. The power-ups really make racing interesting and the speed and handling of modern non-cartoony vehicles is totally kick-ass. The graphics are beautiful but the soundtrack is pretty bland. If...

Sören Da wartet man sehr lange auf einen neuen Action-Racer für den PC und dann kommt gleich ein Blur daher. Wahnsinn wie Bizarre Creations das Mario-Kart-Prinzip auf den PC portiert hat und zugleich noch viele Motivationsschübe eingebaut...
