Blur (PlayStation 3)


Blur answers the long-contemplated question: What would happen if a speeding Renault dropped a land mine in front of a gaining Nissan at 130mph? The answer is, of course, a massive wreck, but it's only now that Blur has merged the real-life cars from...

It's an awesome time to be a racing fan. With ModNation Racers, Split/Second, and Blur all hitting within a matter of weeks from each other, there's no shortage of racing fun to be had. While S/S focuses on environmental destruction, both ModNation...

Despite its shortcomings, Blur winds up being a fantastic racing game. Its kart racing innovations, razor-sharp controls, and incredibly fun multi-player modes ensure that it will be played for quite some time. After years of the PGRs, it's good to see...

This game represents a bit of a strange mix. On one hand, you have realistic visuals. The game makes use of actual make and models of the sort of more or less generic cars automakers around the world have been trying for years to convince the populace...

Attractive graphics ; Online play

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...

Blur 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 Project Gotham and Mario Kart had a baby… Well it's been awhile fellow readers, but I am finally back to my editor duties, and I come back in fantastic...

Handling is solid ; Combat is fun and addictive ; Online is green across the boards

No Match Making ; Difficulty steeps rather quickly ; Uneven graphical and presentation quality

Well it’s been awhile fellow readers, but I am finally back to my editor duties, and I come back in fantastic fashion with this review of the combat racer Blur. While we here at ZTGD have been getting ready for E3 I still found time to sink a lot of...

I've been a fan of Bizarre Creations for years, namely their work on the Project Gotham series; despite my lack of patience for simulation style racers. When Blur was announced, I was very excited to get my hands on a racer that was created to capture...

Blur on Playstation 3


Super Kart Racing

All of this would mean nothing if the cars handled like bumper boats, which is where Bizarre Creations uses their background of realistic driving sims to make an arcade racer feel real. Crashing into walls will shred chunks of metal or plastic from the...

Ever since racing games began people have been trying to force their opponents off the road in the desire to win. In the late 90's, as physics engines were significantly improved, we saw the evolution of the "combat racer" from realistic racing games...

Bizarre Creations makes the jump to the multiplatform development in a Blur. Does the realistic kart racer take the crown from Mario Kart? Find out inside.

Blur has excellent production value and packaging, but fails to engross with a lack of original and compelling gameplay. Like the superior Mario Kart Wii, the game is most enjoyable on the couch with three of your buddies. If you have numerous siblings...

Another Bizarre Creation


Blur doesn't deviate too far from the developers' previous games, but when it does... well, that's when things get interesting.

It's not exaggerating to say that Blur offers more ways to pull your friends into friendly competition with just a few button taps, and by making very obvious challenges for them based on your performance you've already laid down, there's a hankering...

Developer Bizarre Creations may be best known for the Project Gotham Racing franchise, but Blur takes a bit more of a departure. Keeping the real world style of vehicles and environments, the gameplay has less emphasis on realism and a bit more on...

Fun mix of real and arcade racing ; Multiplayer can be somewhat addictive

Car balance is off ; Brutal A.I ; Lack of satisfying "takedown" of competitors ; Can't toggle through the power-ups that are attached to the car

It's fun. Tough, but fun.
