Played the demo on xbox 360 and I was hooked. After a month I decided to pick up a copy for the PS3 (I like the controllers). Last time I played a car brawler this fun was twisted metal on playstation 1. It's been too long but a good company finally came through and put some time into doing it right.
Races and motor mashes are fast and intense but once you get the hang of it it's worth the time. Crashes are satisfying and sometimes you can pull off just the right move at the last second to win. Only complaint is it's little short on players. Give me a big community and I'll be set.
For anyone expecting a racing game this is NOT a racer. It's about weapons, good instincts, and careful planning. Blink and you can go from 1st to last but make the right moves and you can go from last to taking the lead in just 10 seconds..
I really loved this game! I liked the layout, everytime you turn it on it has "Previously on Blur" to tell you what you completed the last time you played. The power-ups are unique and fun to race with. Every level of races has new 'demands' or achievments you need to complete to get to the boss race(this was very cool but at the same time a pain in the butt - had to re-race a bunch of times to get the demands I needed). I liked the cars, it had a nice range of different classes(only thing that sucked about this was you had to use certain classes for certain races) There are different types of races, race/checkpoint/destruction, I LOVED the destruction races.
Overall I think this is a great game, and I really enjoyed playing it. I give it a 9, because I really wasnt disappointed at all, me my husband and my brother all liked it, and when the three of us are playing a game together it gets finished very fast, but this one still took us awhile to beat.

I don't normally play racing games, but Blur is really fun. It is like Mario Kart on c-r-a-c-k. Large groups in multiplayer are really fun, but smaller groups are less fun because there are less people to shoot your shunts at :)
