Blur vs Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit: A Battle of Arcade Racers

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.

Blur Is Pretty Slick

posted in: Game News | 0

I had my doubts with Blur when it was revealed last week, but after seeing it in motion in GiantBomb’s Quick Look and studio tour of Bizarre Creations, it looks pretty damn slick.

I believe Jeff Gerstmann described it as “Wipeout Zero” and I think that description is apt.

Screenshots don’t do it justice, but here are some anyways.

There’s an Xbox 360 beta happening soon and I would love to get in on that, but I lack a Gold account. Too bad. I’m sure a demo will be on its way though.

Blur is scheduled for May 25th, 2010 release for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.

FYI: More Fallout 3 DLC For 360 & PS3, Early Trico Footage
