Maybe it had two other kart racing games to battle it out with during release period, or maybe it was because of a little game called Red Dead Redemption. What ever the case, this amazing game certainly deserved more….
Played the PS3 demo and was good but not something to rush out and buy…I guest next time they wouldn’t dot a time exclusive demo…
Yea I think that killed it too. Kinda pointless to release an exclusive demo when you're trying to sell the game to as many people/consoles as possible..
Blur was NOT amazing. It has some decent concepts, some decent graphics, and some fun game modes. Nothing more, nothing less.
I agree. I played and completed Blur on both systems. It's a decent game but nothing more. Definitely not amazing.
It was a 2 GB demo I just gave up lol
I was about to as well, not because of it's size, well ok maybe because of it's size, but mostly due to the fact that I have a bandwith limit. So happy I downloaded it though, definitely worth it!
I bought it cuz i loved mario kart when i was little:D now that im a gamer i think blur is more appropriate
Activision's name is on the box. Do not want.
this is why I didnt consider it
Me too, even tho i still got it used for 20 Dlls but im glad Kotick will never touch my money.
Yeah i'll probably get it used so bobby don't see the cash.
Concepts been done. The game was trying to sell itself on the fact it was a 'mature' Mario Kart. Don't defend a justified failure.
It had bad marketing, but the game was good. I think it would be a solid game at $40 and Toys r Us has it for $30.
It was far from amazing . The irony is it's quite inferior to the cutesy kart racers like mario kart , that it tried to parody in the ads .
Yeah, in retrospect, trying to make fun of one of the most popular racers in history was probably a poor decision.
what the hell is blur? is it based on the rock band called blur?
Wow lots of haters, I will admit those ads were too much, but it's not like the game had anything do with it. We know the big bad wolf (activision) did all the marketing....
i dont hate it , and other people usually dont . It's beyond an ad thing .. That's the kind of game they strived for and tried to rival . Of their own admission it is very much a mario kart with modern cars instead . Wich is an ok concept in my book . Now does it play as well ? No Does it innovate at least ? No hence the part about it being just an ok game .. wich is what most people pretty much think about it . An ok game released alongside bigger ones so doomed to fail .
I loved the add to be honest.
i bought it for $10 new(thanks n4g) and while i wouldn't go out and spend $60 on it, i would definitely say that it is a lot of fun. when you get used to it and you are racing against 19 other people, it gets quite crazy and intense. the people that hate it, just suck at it. give it a chance and quit the wining.
lol Dude that goes for every single game, most of the time people that suck at them are the ones who hates them.
went to the midnight launch of Red Dead (with Alan Wake and Blur also releasing at midnight). Before the clerk gets to the store full of people waiting on Red Dead he says "Before we get to it, who's the one person that had Blur reserved?" No one says anything. "I know he's here, he just paid for it like 30 minutes ago.". Everyone looks around. Nothing. "Alright then." *Checks out first person for Red Dead*
quote from the games dev, I laughed my ass when I heard that.
Why? The game is a ton of fun. They were right.
last time i had fun playing a racing game was wipeout on psp i do like gran turdismo but after a while it get boring if a want a "true driving simulator" i just rather stard up my car gimme some twisted metal with a racing mode mario kart style
split second destroys that blur
