I played a few games of the Blur demo with David, Mike, Tye, and Duck (nice to hear the Cork accent!) and while I did good and bad it was great fun. Getting the hang of the power ups really helps. I lost count of the number of times I shot down a fireball (shock?) right behind me!
Last race was a ball. I broke Duck’s winning streak of 9 wins! Somehow he managed to avoid two fireballs fired backwards at him even though he was on my tail, but I think I hit him with the smaller pink projectiles! 🙂
Will I buy the full game? Maybe. If the rest of the guys buy it I probably will. It’s obviously most fun played against friends than against random strangers, especially when everyone has a mic. The one thing that worries me is longevity. It’s only racing after all but I suspect we’ll have a lot of fun with it before it gets boring.
Here’s a review in case you’ve never heard of the game.
