Criticisms

- Sometimes the game will stutter. Most noticeable when leading the AI players.

- The game will reset player car position when you spin out.
I don't need to be hand-held, thank you.

- Game will not let the player's car flip over if the player takes a ramp at an angle that would force them to flip. Again with the stupid hand-holding.

- Game has absolutely NO sense of speed.

- Two views? No in-cockpit? No hood-cam?

- No custom controller config

- No custom keyboard config

- Console menu trees and layouts. No room for a mouse in this interface. That is just sloppy.

- No Radio pop-up like PGR had for song changes.


All in all, I'd say this game is worth maybe 15$ to me. Pretty disappointed.

Hmm not looking good for the PC version lol. Thanks for the review. Could you like upload a video you think? of some nice gameplay, dont bother with it if ur upload is too slow.

Could you detail some more about the problems with the handling and speed.

Thanks.

Did you have any issues making an account for multiplayer? I cannot get my key code to be recognized. It keeps saying its invalid code. What is up with that.

The Blur content servers are not available right now. I think it's due to how the game just got released.

Mostly when games are released all features should be available. What a rubbish service from EA yet again.

No sense of speed? You gotta be kidding me.

No, they've got to be kidding me. It feels so dead. Compare the sense of speed in this to something like PGR4 or Shift. This game is quite lacking. Bizarre is usually good for quality games, this game does NOT deliver on that for me in the state it is now.

I run the game max'd 1920x1080 3 GHz quad 940, HD 4850. There is no stuttering. I suggest you troubleshoot your system or try turning your settings down.

It's Activision. Not EA.

Good game IMO. Could use keyboard remapping and replays. I always like sitting back and watching a replay after I've had a good race.
