When Blur is released to the masses at the end of this month, we'll find out whether the Liverpool studio's racing-with-power-ups gambit has finally paid off. Among the UK gaming press, the informal consensus appears to be that it may well have done. Initial reactions to the project were cloudy: fans of the more straight-laced Project Gotham series were sceptical about the new carnage-driven approach, particularly in light of all the other big-name racers that arrived in late 2009 – DIRT 2, Forza 3, and Need For Speed: Shift. But when the game re-emerged from the shadows earlier this year, there was a definite sense that Blur had found its stride".
