Welcome to the world of blur, the ultimate racing experience that drops you into heart pumping, electrified action with 20 cars vying for the finish line and battling each other as they trade paint. Intense power-ups are what you'll use to gain the upper hand and win the race in blur.
These include Shock, which fires three Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP) fields in front of the lead racer, crippling their car. Mines can be thrown either in front or behind you to slow opponents down, while Barge blasts nearby racers away from you. Other slick weaponry includes Bolt, which allows you to hurl three energy rounds at opponents to nudge them off course and Shunt, a homing missile that can flip cars into the air. There are also Nitrous power-ups, Shields and Repair, ideal for fixing your car up in an instant.
There are numerous modes too including Destruction, Checkpoint, Race and One-On-One. You can only compete in One-On-One once you have completed a series of challenges set out for you. These challenges include finishing in the top three places and reaching Fan Targets, which are achieved by winning races and acing challenges that involve passing through flashing icons on the racetrack or using three power-ups in a row.
blur features four categories of cars to get to grips with, and at the outset of the game you're given four cars to race with. The reason for this is because some challenges require the use of all four vehicles to achieve the goals set out for you. The order in which you complete them is entirely up to you.
