If you thought driving games were getting boring then Blur is here to refuel your enthusiasm. A mix of all the best from proper driving sims and less serious party games, the old rules of racing won't help you now.
Although still set in the real world every car can collect and use power-ups that let you knock, damage and destroy your rivals or simply give you a speed boost or repair your own car. They're never powerful enough to completely unbalance a race though, just another tool in your box of racing tricks.
As you'd expect from the creators of Project Gotham Racing the game has a full suite of online modes, all wrapped up in a virtual social network where you compete for fan points and gain your own notoriety within the game and beyond. Finally a racing game with a bit more drive in it.
Project Kart: A brand new game from the makers of Project Gotham Racing, that mixes the best of realistic racers with the fun of Mario Kart.
No blue shells: Power-ups require almost as much skill as the driving, from the missile like Shunt to the lightning style shock attack and the always useful Barge.
World tour: Race in subtly altered versions of real world cities, including a Los Angeles river bed and inner city London.
FaceTwitter: Play in a virtual social network, where every rival has their own unique personality and competing in any race can also gain you "fan points".
Online fame: Go online and you can compete in the real "Facebook of racing" with the 20-player online mode (or stay offline and use the 4-player splitscreen mode).
