Not played Blur but Split Second is pretty awesome. I got that old Burnout feeling that I had before they ruined it with Paradise.

Not played it online either so I'm probably no help but I do love the game.

PS I never play games these days so something has to be good (and pick up and playable) before I invest any time in it.

Hmm.. I'm leaning towards split second as well at the mo. Blur has better multiplayer apparently.

Anyone got any supermarket deals for either game?

Yeah a friend of mine did say Blur had better multiplayer mode actually. With my box being persona non grata on the Live network I couldn't comment, or care for that matter.

Blur is quite hard for some maybe you should try Split second 1st.

I'm not particularly fond of either game.
Split Second is initially more exciting as there are some great set pieces - They soon became repetitive.

I can imagine it does get repetitive after a while. It's great for the casual gamers amongst us though.

Blur is awesome definately get it. I like how you can go from 1st to last in a matter of seconds. Even when your last on the last lap you can bolt a few cars, nitro boost your way past a few more and lightning bolt everyone else. I've got both but playing split second after blur hated it. Blur is much more arcade orientated whereas split second is just a normal driving sim with explosions. Blur single player is ok just gets a little repetitive. The multiplayer is addictive and if you got a friend (doubt it) to play with even better. I can't really comment on split second as i've hardly played it but my initial thoughts were that it was boring.

Watch ]this you can probably tell if its your sort of game

I really enjoyed Blur more than Split Second, I played the beta and demo for both, but rented out Blur so can't comment on the full game for Split Second.
Blur online is really fun and addictive, I was up until the early hours of the morning playing it non stop. It gets frustrating at times if you keep doing bad, but thats what all the power ups are for, I loved taking that frustration out on other drivers and then driving straight past them.
The single player is quite good, with different game modes to play, and if you have a friend who has the game also you can set them challenges too, thats rather fun trying to compete with eachother and beat their scores.

Aye FanPages :thumbsup:

Single player is miles better on Split/Second, Multiplayer is slightly better on Split/Second but i couldn't sit and play split/second multiplayer for as long as i can sit an play Blur multiplayer.

All very strange i know but to me, split/second is the more fun option for shorter gaming sessions, blur is better for long (online only) gaming session but never QUITE as fun as Split/Second gets.

Verdict: Stop worrying about it; they're both great racing games so get both. Play which ever takes your fancy at that moment

Sorry for the delay. I was logged-into two different Facebook accounts playing "Café World".

Notice how many members are signing-off with "BFN" in this thread:

If the PlayStation Network was not undergoing maintenance I would be playing "Split/Second: Velocity" [PS3] either offline or online right now.

If you manage to beat me in an online race you'll gain the "Team BlackRock" Trophy:

I made a gaming blog recently, similar to yours just quick and simple to read. Gave up in the end as I felt I was wasting my time a little bit only got three followers in a week :thinking:. Got a lot of other stuff to do so haven't got time to promote it at the minute. Maybe when exams finish i'll have another go. Pm'd you the site to avoid self promo.
