Final Breakdown


Achieving the perfect gameplay balance for a racing/fighting game is difficult, but Blur comes pretty close.


The graphics are well done, but it's very possible to get lost on some of the tracks, in sections that are either very, very busy or simply because multiple paths look so similar.

Sound and Music:

No voices to speak of, lots of big explosions. Music? Rather forgettable.


On the one hand, the game doesn't punish new players unduly, but there's still room for an overly experienced player (or one with a special talent in the genre) to just run away with each race in the multiplayer mode.

Controls and Interface:

The controls are well done. The insistence on trying to tie so many functions into online sources and making players go to a website to fully see their play statistics will either be seen as a blessing or a curse, depending on the player. Being able to send screenshots to friends, however, is a nice touch.


If you're not a fan of racing titles, it's probably not going to be the game that converts you - but it's definitely be worth it for home play among friends, the social component is impressively done, and there's plenty of reason to pick it up even for the non-hardcore racing types.
