  1. When races go well, it's white knuckle action from beginning to end. Sadly, issues often make it so "going well" isn't always in the cards, and anyone ever upset by a Blue Shell in Mario Kart will spent a lot of time huffing and puffing during Blur races.

    Blur isn't the addictive, competitive online game that people wanted it to be. Rather, Blur is a pallete-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 game you really like marathoning.
  3. The mismatched marriage of Mario Kart and PGR results in a racer that's less than the sum of its parts.
  4. Speedy and varied levels, but the graphics are mediocre and the split-screen mode should have gotten more attention.
  5. While boasting an impressively large array of vehicle and a refreshing sense of strategic depth, Blur's uninteresting graphics and less than satisfactory controls puts this potentially exhilarating game at a disadvantage at a time when there are so many other racers on the market.
  6. Blur is fast, chaotic, and flashy. It may not be particularly original or memorable, but it could make for some great post-bar silliness with your friends on par with a bad kung fu movie. Like a skittish commitment-phobe, as soon as you start to take Blur too seriously, it all falls to pieces.

    Blur is definitely one of the most fun racing games I have ever played.Its like a cross between Mario kart and need for speed underground.TheBlur is definitely one of the most fun racing games I have ever played.Its like a cross between Mario kart and need for speed underground.The career mode isn't very gripping,its when you start playing multiplayer that the fun really starts.20 player online is very cahotic. and unless you manage to pull away from the pack early on you probably wont stay in first place for long.It can be very frustrating at times especially when you are constantly bombarded with weapons.But despite its flaws I would recommend Blur to anyone remotely interested in racers.
