DON'T GET ME WRONG.. I THINK THIS GAME IS COOL. I JUST WANT TO INFORM YOU THAT IT IS SHORT. PLAYED IT FOR ROUGHTLY 4 DAY'S (4HRS) A DAY DONE? IN MY OPINION I THINK IT COULD BENIFIT FROM HAVING THE ABILITY TO UPGADE THE CARS AND PROLONG THE STORY.
Ok when i first played Blur it was great! the single player was fun and easy to learn.. i was stuck on it for atleast 3-4 hours.. Once i got to like the 3rd or 4th stage of single player it started to feel repetitive.. and the objectives( theres 5 objectives you must do on each stage before you face a boss) you had to complete to face the boss was ridiculous.. im talkin hours of replay on a certain stage just to complete the objective.. I spent about 2 hours tryna to complete all the objectives for the fan stage and boy it was annoyin!
So i hopped on multi-player! played a couple of races and it was pretty fun except.. you can be in 1st place the whole race and you could get blasted by the homing missle and fall all the way to 3rd. Multi-player is where the game shines though No lag, fast lobbys and fast paced racing. Overall i give it a 6/10!
A good rent if you like mario kart style racer with real cars but to the average gamer you'll get tired of it quick like i did! (Just got it in the mail today and sendin it back tmrw)

Blur from Bizarre Creations (who put out the amazing Geometry Wars) shifts gears with Blur and creates the interesting mashup of Mario Kart and the world of street racing. I dig the sense of speed since it's one of the fastest racing titles I've played this side of Burnout in awhile, and I also love all the powerups and whatnot that throw a bit of Mario Kart style action into the mix, although I gotta point out the developers could have made it a bit easier to distinguish what the different powerups do before you make tactical decisions on what to fire off. The logos are just too basic and not what you would expect them to look like, which just makes things confusing at times. Also, like many reviewers have stated before me the game is very punishing at times, with crazy goals you must fulfill to face the game bosses even within the first few sets of races into the game. It's nice to see a racer that isn't afraid to blow up high end realworld sport cars, and the blistering speed is definitely a rush, but in the end I highly recommend a rental because your mileage may vary with Blur depending on if you can hang with the high difficulty. It's like the TV commercials have been saying "race with the big boys".
