  1. It plays well, runs smoothly, and heralds the kind of game play which will keep score-hounds coming back to it again and again.
  2. A brilliantly balanced score-attack game. It looks lovely too. [May 2007, p.77]

    It's online, it's smooth to control, it's cheap, and it's worth a blast. [Issue #152, p.72]
  4. A solid shooter that fans will enjoy and a cheap way to show off some amazing effects on your new Playstation 3. [JPN Import]
  5. Blast Factor has some exciting moments and offers a unique twist on a familiar formula, but it still ends up feeling generic and forgettable.
  6. But the bigger problem seems to be that developer Bluepoint Games has gone after two audiences at once, and it hasn't really done enough for either.

    There are countless games of its genre that do it better, some of which are more than 20 years old, and its use of tilt functionality doesn't change that.

    It's not quite as good as the magnificent Mutant Storm Reloaded on 360, but it's still great fun. The motion sensor adds a neat twist on the genre also. I would have liked to see a Time Attack mode, where you can play any level in the game, rather than just the 'start at level 1' arcade style. Oh well, maybe there will be an improved Blast Factor 2.
