    The game doesn't look that bad, quite the contrary. It's just the concept. It didn't get to me. it's Mario Kart with better looking cars that's all it is. And i'm not actually a fan of the Karts games.

    This is, so far, the best online arcade racing game on the PS3. The weapon and power up system is well balanced and fun, sort of like wipeout. Cornering consists of jamming your car or truck into the wall, as braking properly will make you lose online. Sim fans or even NFS junkies won't have an advantage. Leveling isn't very interesting but it allows you to unlock new rides. The graphicsThis is, so far, the best online arcade racing game on the PS3.

Sim fans or even NFS junkies won't have an advantage. Leveling isn't very interesting but it allows you to unlock new rides. The graphics are good and the sound is awesome. I think this is a good game but it loses some points because I had mastered it before the demo was over. Since the cornering doesn't matter, theres no need to memorize the tracks, something essential in all other racing games. I just got good at using the weapons system, then dominated online and got bored. Overall its the most fun racing experience and worth a shot until other racing games or a Blur sequel come out.

  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.
