Blur For PS3 Review - Racing With A Twist!
I picked up this game thinking it was just going to be racing game only to find out it was so much more than just a racing game. It packs a serious degree of hardness that can't be found in just any ordinary racing game. In fact, at times the game seems to be extremely frustrating.
Let me explain why in this review. For starters, it is one thing to drive a car and make precision turns and maneuvers. It is completely another animal to make all kinds of crazy turns an maneuvers while someone is shooting at you. In fact, the AI is insanely difficult on "normal" difficulty.
Don't get me wrong that is not all this game has in store. In fact, that is just the half of it. While in career mode there "Destruction" levels, in which you need to shoot down enemies to gain more and more points. There are also "Checkpoint" stages where you have to race against the clock, which is really my favorite.
However, once you get past the degree of difficulty you will find this game to be quiet fun. There are a ton of extras in which you will want to unlock, rather than just gathering fans and doing tricks or hurting your opponents.
So back to fans they are not really visual as you will never see tons and tons of fans, but rather a number that pops up when you do special objectives in a level. You can also get them by attacking opponents. You will then be able to unlock new cars which gives you something to work towards.
I think it is really addicting to give you a reason to keep on racing too. Some other really popular video games have done this in the past and it has worked very well for them.
There are more ways to play Blur too. Online is pretty fun, but can be a huge mess when you are playing with twenty other players at once. However, when you are playing with your buddies at home it can be quite fun and addicting. Four players racing against each other and blasting each other to death; it doesn't get any better than that.
All and all I would recommend Blur to people that like Mario Cart, Twisted Metal, ect. It is pretty fun and the single player and multiplayer modes are a lot of fun. This game will keep you busy for hours and hours.
