I initially preferred S/S over Blur but at the weekend I played Blur solidly. went from rank 1 to 15. It's the most fun I've had playing MP for years.

Rank 8 opened up Motor Mash which is 20 player destruction derby. There is a dust bowl level where wveryone starts on the ridge and then drive towards each other.

Powerups are fun and balanced, cars handle well. You can do high speed races with high class cars.

I can't wait to get back into it. The beta was closed today I believe.

I also was hoping for much more from S/S and much less from Blur. I guess I'll have to buy Blur now, the Beta was surprisingly good.

Blur demo sold this game to me over SS. Plus Bizarre deserves my $$$ way more than Disney.

I have played the beta for some time but I didn't have that much fun with it.
The handling of the cars felt so strange even for a arcade/fun racer but Bizarre has shown that they can do very good physics/ handling with the PGR series and the power ups felt strange. Maybe that disappears if you play longer :(

S/S was the other way around. I really love Pure and had high hopes for S/S. When I played the demo for the first time I was surprised by the car handling. Pure was too "floaty" and the cars in S/S felt sooooo heavy and glued to the track. Anyhow, Black Rock/Disney gets my money when S/S gets a bit cheaper in the UK because Alan Wake LE and Red Dead already raped my wallet

If you're going to put it like that, you need to say Activision and not Bizarre.

For me neither SS nor Blur really delivered in terms of the beta/demos. That said, while SS was just a pile of shit IMO, Blur was at least fun, just not up to the quality of PGR games for me.

I'll rent Blur and give it a proper go, but I can't see myself buying the game when there are so many other big games coming out.

Good graphics, but this is essentially what the Wipeout (PS) series has been.

Yep after playing both games demos blur wins, although I am interested in seeing what S/S offers in respect to online multiplayer because 1player mode is just damn boring.

    Moonwalker @Sdarts: In a way you can show the difference. I made a few pics today of Forza 7 demo, Recore and Gears 4 and you can definitely see what you're missing out on wirh SDR. (4 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @rayy: Yes, Larian Studios is great. And D:OS2 had a year of Early Access with constant updates based on the community's feedback. Also, something I forgot to mention, there's already many mods for it (3 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Moonwalker: Yes, HDR is really awesome. But like with VR, it can't be shown in images or videos, you need to check it in person. Try all the games you can, it might give them a "second wind" for you. (3 Hours ago)
  • rayy
    rayy @Sdarts: Play it today at a friend house on coop. Definitely much better game than the first and the first was already really good. I was also surprise how well it plays with a controller. (12 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker directly compare it to SDR, holy shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit. I just checked Ghost Recon beta and Hitman, ooooh my. :) (17 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @Sdarts: No lies detected man, very true. I don't know why I didn't notice it before, then again my only way of seeing a HDR game was via a video or two. But now with my own games and being able to (17 Hours ago)
