While it certainly didn’t revolutionize the genre (Mario Kart is still king) Blur adds a new tone with real cars in unreal situations. Be on the lookout for a little video from me later on when I pick up my copy and some impressions later on (possibly tomorrow). Of course follow me on my twitter at http://twitter.com/goldenboyftw.

Can’t wait to see you on the tracks soon!
