    Great racer, great atmosphere and some great battles. It doesn't however have the buzz of burnout. Online you can progress into some great team battes when you achieve enough points. Id recommend it if you and your mates intend to play together. Lastly the power up system can often feel inaquate but they can be boosted with unlockables. I guess Im still waiting for mario kart on ps3........which uuuhhm wont happen. Expand

    Loved Blur. Got tons of hours of fun out of single player and multiplayer.

    I can now also say this about it: MUCH MORE FUN THAN GRAN TURISMO 5. I'll trade realistic cornering for an actual fun game (and better collision physics!) any day of the week.

    I'm much more of an RPG fan, but I really loved this racer. It's the first really good one I've played since Need for Speed: Underground so many years ago.

    Blur has speed, combat, excitement and most importantly a consistent learning curve (the speed & difficulty of the vehicles you unlock don't suddenly become unbearable). I'm looking forward to playing through again on a mixture of hard
    & medium instead of medium & easy through my first playthrough. Expand

    Blur. I got it cheap and what a suprise it is! Singleplayer campaign is decent, a bit short but ok in this genre. It will give you smile on your face when you complete it. But the singleplayer here isn't what you wan't in this game - the singleplayer is like rating 7/10. But the online is simply gold, it is the FUNNIEST experience in online I've ever got, by far. It's like Mario Kart with real cars and awesome graphics (comparing to how much happening in the screen). Playstation players who have microphones all time - so you can even hear how fun it is. This game almost lacks bad losers because even losing is so fun! I have 1000 online games, 40+ hours and I have like 11 wins, it is just so fun. Also there is 4-player split-screen offline multiplayer. So this is the ultimate arcade-racing multiplayer experience! Try it! Expand

  1. The fast-paced races, exciting power-ups and fun online mode aren't marred by a shallow single-player career and a low supply of race tracks. The game's fun online mode more than makes up for any minor issues I have with the game!
  2. Blur's mix of strategy-based power-ups, load-out menus, and largely varied challenges really make this game a must for all automotive fans. In a genre this oversaturated, it is good to know that there is still some innovation left.
  3. Blur is the thinking person’s death race – if there is such a thing – where your mind is racing just as fast as your motor.
