With Split/Second rolling out soon i can't help but think it is nothing more than a Burnout clone, probably in a good way but do we need all those triggered explosions? why can't we just enjoy fast manic arcade racing? Burnout Revenge (my favorite in the series) can be picked up for less than a fiver these days. I guess if you lamented what they did to the series with Burnout Paradice (bastards) then you could see this as a step in the right direction for motor racing.
Also, the more i see of that Blur game the more i wonder just who is going to buy it, why can't we have a proper 'cars with guns' racing game, the wonderful JS film DeathRace showed us how it should be done, maybe someone should explain to Blur's developers that EMP and shock attacks are Special Effects, not weapons.
