What’s everyone think of Blur ? does it have what it takes to


  1. My family would loooove this!

  2. I’m guilty, I’m kind of excited about this game. I was an avid race game fan until I became obsessed with the GRAW games. Now racing games mainly get played by me offline when I have company. This game looks like a great get together game.

  3. The game looks good, but i still have to see something like “this is really great”, thats what i say each time i see a new video from Split/Second.

  4. I hope I can get in the beta to try this out, Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing is a pretty good Mario Kart alternative on Xbox 360…I wonder if Blur will be able to capture the fun and attachment of MK and S&S without the memorable/beloved characters?

  5. These are exactly my worries. Blur seems to do everything right, and at the same time without any personality.

    Of course i can be completely wrong, i will try the game first.

  6. My family is sooo excited for this! They are more into the racing than I am. The whole tweeting aspect is kind of cool too. LOL. Although I don;t think I want everyone to know I just smashed my vehicle. Ah well.

  7. lol the title says it all
