I initially planned to write up my thoughts on Blur by itself. But after playing Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit for a few days, I felt the need to compare the two games. They crossed each other’s paths enough that I couldn’t help but want features from one game and vice versa. Neither was perfect, but my preferences aligned more with Bizarre Creation’s. I respect Criterion’s take on the Need for Speed franchise and would gladly recommend it to those who have been missing those classic cop chases. However, if you want something a bit more “out there” and engaging, I cannot recommend Blur enough.
Stop reading if that’s all the convincing you need. Otherwise, give the rest of this post a good read.
