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.

About the game


What's up?
  • Tinks
    Tinks I didn't understand why he played so poorly either though. Subasic has been amazing the rest of the tourney. A big reason they won against Denmark and Russia (16 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks @MrWhite: I agree. Penalty like that shouldn't happen in a WC final. Croatia's keeper was screened for almost all of those goals, aside from the deflection (16 Hours ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus @Melmoth: oh god, that is amazing. the sounds and visuals are insane for a sim. (17 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @droezelke: For both them? Mbapp was 20 odd yards out. His positioning was shite. Should never have let that one past him. (17 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke If FIFA didn't object so long to get a VAR, the concept could have been bug-fixed 10 years ago. (18 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Tinks: The VAR is an exvellent tool, but the rules applied to the VAR are restricting them from intervening. Also, the hands-rule is so ill defined that it's completely open to interpretation. (18 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke Then the shot came and as he tried to correct to the right, he was leaning on the wrong leg and went out of balance. (18 Hours ago)
