Split/Second vs Blur

Well I just got both the games, seeing for a change in Racing games...Which were getting way too ordinary and boring in games like GRID (No offense).

And I really have contrasting views for both the games which are loaded with Powerups that are way too fun.

Split/Second:-

Well first of all I am dead shocked that its from Disney. I know they haven't made the game, but just seeing their logo on violent games like this stuns me.

The graphics of this game are great, and the physics are commendeable. Blowing up huge buildings/infrastructure pumps up my adrenaline level.

The lack of nitrous is not felt in this game, as all the cars are packed with crazy acceleration.

The amount of maps/locations are way too less. They could have come up with more here. But still, it does not affect the fun factor of the game though! And yes - About the number of cars! IMO there are 27 cars in the game, most of them have the same feel, but you can spot the difference after you finish a race with it.

The game modes in the game are also pretty fun, yet challenging. And to answer on why its challenging - Its because the most of the cars are weak. They can get crashed easily, warping you to the last place.

So overall, this game is really good, it has juices of Flatout: Carnage and Burnout. If you are bored of playing too many racing games then trust me you will enjoy this. Action in racing never gets old.

Rating: 8/10

Blur:-

Blur is yet another game based on powerplays. But here its not just about explosions, but also of various other powerups that help you also (Reparing your car, shielding it, etc). So yeah, its much like Mario Kart.

Compared to Split/Second, the graphics and the physics are a disappointment in the game. They feel dated. Track design looks ripped from the NFS Underground games and the car design is also not upto the mark of 2010. Don't worry - These factors won't actually affect your overall experience. Well, to a certain degree.

The variety in the game speaks for itself. It will keep you busy for hours. Haven't counted how many cars this baby packs with, but I am pretty sure they are a plenty.

Driver control is not like other games, but is quite simple. The turns are as smooth as I wanted. So you will have less wall screeching moments in this game.

This game sure gave me some feel of NFS Underground mixed with Audiosurf. So all I miss is a music track dependent track design...LOL! I am sure you will enjoy this game too.

Rating: 8/10


So its a tie from my side! Its because both of these games have some very different things to offer, and they are executed very well. But still if you wanna pick any one game from these two, then I prefer Split/Second.

i've never been much of a fan of racing games..of any kind. way too boring and almost a linear learning curve makes them quite avoidable..for me. but seeing that u're brave enough to try makes me want to try it too. so....if u were to pick just one of the two..which would it be? just one.

I guess I answered that on my last sentence - Split/Second.

I agree with the choice of Split Second over Blur.
For me, Blur seems to campy... like an introduction for kids growing out of the Super Mario stage but not really ready for adult action games.
