Blur is a racing/combat game where you can pick up power ups to help you win. These range from weapons to shoot other drivers with to defensive shields or speed boosts. There's a very minor RPG aspect where you can level up to unlock new cars as well as bonuses to fill your CoD style upgrade slots. Aside from giving you more cars and upgrades to choose from level doesn't really do anything. I don't really play racing games so I don't have much experience to compare it to, but for what it's worth both me and my cousin liked Blur despite usually not liking racing games. The combat part of the races makes things more interesting than just driving in circles. It provides a fun challenge trying to drive, aim and dodge all at the same time and the action can be pretty intense sometimes. I don't think it had enough replay value for a purchase, but I highly recommend it as a rental.

Being someone who isn't the best at racing games or doesn't often play them due to frustration I have with them at times, I found Blur to still be a really fun game. Even if I end up in last place, I still have the chance to get back up in the race with a clever use of power-ups. It makes me feel like I'm 6 years old playing Mario Kart again almost, except with real cars which look stunning. I didn't get far through the solo play, which reminded me of the Need For Speed: Most Wanted campaign where you would have to meet certain requirements until you were able to race the main person for the section and get their cars. before I felt like diving into multi-player, I found that much more enjoyable, playing with other people. I would definitely recommend this game to anyone considering buying or even renting this game.
