Played some of the new Activision racing title “Blur” last night. Make no mistake – this is Need For Speed vs Wipeout. Actually an interesting idea, taking the street racing genre and adding weapons & powerups which are decidedly unrealistic.
So this is the game with the crazy plastic skateboard. I got to watch it being demoed by an Activision guy – and then saw some journalists fall off. Repeatedly. The level of enthusiasm wasn’t exactly overwhelming to be honest (even N’Gai just wanted to watch the demo).
For the first time ever adamreeve.com is under an official embargo! I was at the Activision PAX media reception this evening where they were showing some of their new titles. Unfortunatly I can’t talk about them until tomorrow (due to aforementioned embargo), so for now I shall review their nibbles!
