Story
In Blur the storyline plays out in the single player campaign. Here players assume the role of an up-and-coming racer who is looking to make a name for himself in the underground racing scene, but the competition is fierce. As you take on the series of races, you'll meet a bunch of recurring characters. Some of these characters will be rivals, others perhaps will act as mentors, and some may be something else entirely. The only thing that is certain in the world of Blur is that in a race there are winners and losers, and racers will do anything to reach the finish line first.

Gameplay
Although filled with the beautifully elaborate racing environments, realistic damage effects and a long list of available cars usually only found in simulation racers, Blur is an arcade racer through and through. Its single player campaign revolves around the game's Career Mode, while in multiplayer there are additional options, including customizable cooperative and competitive races. In both of these though the second-to-second, fast-paced action is rooted in the wealth of powerups strewn throughout the track. These are addictive in their use and dramatic and devastating when used against opposing racers. With each successive race that players engage in they will use their collection of powerups to engage in vehicular combat of all sorts as they make their way to the finish. The game employs a fictional in-game social networking system allowing communication between drivers, and through this a way for players to establish alliances, find mentors and get familiar with the tactics of opponents. Monetary rewards are accumulated by drivers not only for success in competition, but by generous fans earned during races and for predetermined side challenges within races, proposed by those same fans. With the cash accumulated through all these, players can buy new cars and upgrade their ability to use powerups and keep their career going.

Powerups
An impressive array of powerups are part and parcel to the vehicular combat that takes place Blur. These are spread across each of the game's tracks and for the most part can be used at any time. Drivers start out with the ability to sock away up to two of these, but with success players can upgrade to add additional slots and even increase the potency of the powerups that they have. Powerups in the game include:

  • Shock - An electromagnetic pulse that homes in on the nearest car or packs of cars, surrounding you.
  • Barge - An energy wave weapon designed to be unleashed at close range to hurl enemy drivers off course.
  • Shunt - A forward firing projectile that can be used to bring you closer to competitors or blast them out of the way.
  • Nitro - A short, powerful speed boost designed to get the driver back in contention when he/she falls behind.
  • Mines - Explosive devices dropped out on to the track that blow apart any car that runs them over.
  • Repair - A way to regain health without making a pit stop at a repair shop. Unlike other powerups, these are used instantly instead of being stored for later use.

Multiplayer Support and Game Modes
Blur is designed from the ground up to provide an enthralling multiplayer experience both online and offline. Online players with enjoy support for up to 20 player races, while local offline play features 2-4 player, four-way split screen support through a single console and up to 20 player support via system link console configurations. Within races players will have the choice to play either competitively and cooperative, in a variety of play modes that offer a mix of customization and automation. Just a few of the race parameters that can be customized are locale, car class and number of racers. Players can also choose to let the game handle the specifics of race particulars with World Tour mode, which will string together race after race randomly, allowing friends to simply concentrate on the fun.

Tracks and Cars
The gameworld of Blur contains an impressive array of tracks and cars. Players can expect to pile up the powerups and put the pedal to the metal across tracks set throughout 14 real cities and other locations throughout the world, each of these featuring recognizable streets and landmarks. Just a few of these include, London, San Francisco, Barcelona and Los Angeles. The game is also filled with over 50 fully licensed cars, unlockable and purchasable throughout the game.

Key Game Features

  • Powerups - Collect a variety of addictive dynamic powerups and use them independently or combo them strategically to take out your opponents.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The main reason why I've made this review is purely because of the review right below me, which complains about requiring a "separate video card" to play. But I'll get to that in a moment.

This is basically a fast paced arcade racer with powerups. Take a game like Gran Turismo and mix it in with some Mario Kart powerups, and you have this awesome, awesome game. The goal of the game is to drive around in your vehicle of choice, all of them real life cars, and basically blast each other to smithereens with powerups that are strewn throughout the track. Driving is VERY arcade style - you can accelerate, brake, and e-brake and you steer left and right. Handling is fairly straightforward. Cars handle very much like they do in Ridge Racer. Instead of getting busted up after just one hit from an attack, your car has a health meter, which goes down as you take hits from enemy attacks. If your health meter depletes, your car gets wrecked, and you're put out of commission for a short period. You can pick up powerups to repair your car back to full health so this doesn't happen, but that can get challenging when you have 19 other players trying to fight for first place. Yes you heard me, you can have up to 20 opponents racing simultaneously, both in single player and multiplayer mode!

That's the basic mechanics. Variety-wise, you have multiple modes you can choose from. You have Blur's equivalent of Last Man Standing, where your main goal is to just smash the daylights out of your opponents, racing, where you go around a track and try to get first place while fighting off attacks from your opponents, hardcore "simulation" racing, where powerups are disabled and your racing skills are put to the test, team modes, and much more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good game for split screen... February 20, 2012
Platform for Display:PC|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I saw this game before so I knew what i was buying... I bought this game for the capability of playing split screen with up to 3 players (4 in total counting myself)...

graphics are great... sound is nice and the game is like a mario kart but with nice cars...

If you are looking for something realistic this is not the game for you... if you just want to have fun with your buddies or your significant other, this game is great...

4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of underappreciated fun! December 13, 2010
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a great game! Fun to play online (potentially at least), and fun to play on splitscreen, too,

I just love the Mario Kart with real cars and places concept. I got almost everything I was expecting out of it. Maybe the car roster wasn't as rich as I hoped (okay, that just means it doesn't feature the Subaru Impreza STI, nor the Aston Martins), but still you get your Camaros, Corvettes, BMWs, Mustangs, etc.

I say give it a shot. You'll have a ton of fun.

I'll also say that after over 5 years of playing Trackmania on a weekly basis, this game is at fault for finally making me quit the habit.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Okay, let me start off by listing ALL of the racing games I have ever bought:

Rad Racer (NES)
Super Mario Kart (SNES)
18 Wheeler American Pro Trucker (DC)
Mario Kart Double Dash!! (GC)
Mario Kart Wii (Wii)

I think Mario Kart is one of the best games ever (say what you will about the rubber band gameplay, it's the only game I can play competitively with my wife and she still has a chance to win).

Blur takes that system of powerups and knocking out your opponent and adds real cars and realistic tracks. It's fast, clean, and a lot of fun. There's a lot to unlock. Most races have three goals - winning, collecting fans, and passing a fan challenge. Winning is obvious. Collecting fans is done by smashing up your opponents. Fan challenges consist of racing through a series of gates at high speed. You can complete each goal independently, so if you want, you can race the first time to win and worry about the fans later.

I haven't experienced any glitches and yes, this is on the PC (WinXP 32-bit). On my $50 NVidia video card, I'm able to play the game at full everything with a high framerate (I haven't used FRAPS yet to calculate exactly what it is). My Logitech Rumblepad 2 works, except for L2 and R2 buttons and the rumble feature, by using the x360ce vibmod 3.1.4.0 driver, which makes the Rumblepad look like an XBox 360 controller.

I have to say I'm a little disappointed by the lack of support for non-360 controllers out of the box. I was going to buy a racing wheel, but now I'm wondering if the game will properly support it or not...

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome game, great price! June 1, 2010
Platform for Display:PC|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I played the demo of Blur on Xbox 360 and enjoyed it and was going to get it for that or PS3 when it came out but I have a beefy PC too so once I saw the $20 price difference it was a no brainer so picked it up for PC. Game plays amazing, and it's a ton of fun. It's a lot like a Mario Kart for adults, or a re-imagination of that old 3DO pack in game Crash N Burn which is still one of my favorite racers ever. It has amazing graphics, runs perfectly smooth at 40-50fps cranked up @ 1920x1200 on my quad core Q9650, 4GB RAM, GeForce GTX 285, on Windows 7 64bit. The online play works great too and has enough people playing to always be able to hop on and find some fellow gamers to play with. Also I'm using a PS3 dualshock gamepad with it hooked up to USB and using MotionJoy software that allows that to work and it works perfect as I expected it would. The gameplay gets pretty challenging too about halfway in but that's a good thing in my opinion, I like a challenge. Some really awesome looking tracks too, especially the one on the boardwalk at night with fireworks and wet dirt and pavement, very cool.

Definitely a must buy for racing fans, highly recommended!
