Thumbs up Blur [360,ps3,pc]

From Bizzare Creations, makers of the PGR racing games...



Looks like it could be fun.

Bizzare Creations have a very solid reputation within the racing genre...surely this has to pretty good!?

Looks decent enough from that clip, but the proof as always will be with some hands-on time with it.

Lots of lovely new footage.....



Handling/physics looks a little too arcadey, but looks fun & makes for a nice change of pace from the more serious racers out later this year.

Still not sure about this one. The footage does look fun and the power-ups and more arcade style racing make it a different sort of game even than Dirt 2 or Need For Spee: Shift. Kind of reminds me a bit of Midnight Club 2 or 3 with power-ups like in Jak X. With all these driving games I wish somebody would make a decent up-to-date Twisted Metal.

Forgot to mention I really like the interface/menu screens. Looks very clean & almost Tron like.

Blur does nothing for me at all, i really wanted another PGR game but sadly that will never happen.

But thanks for the Scrap Metal video, looks great fun!

Not bothered, just means more time to play COD:MW2
