Poll Blur or Sonic & All-Stars Racing? - Which combat racing IP you prefer to see on XB1X/PS5/PC's library of racing games? (13 votes)

Blur (Activision) 46%
Sonic & All Star Racing (Sega) 54%

Dear racing gamers!

Here are the two combat racing game IPs that are about to turn 10 years old by this year.

Both of these racing game IPs appear to be inspired by Mario Kart in terms of gameplay.

What I've known about Blur; after the release of Project Gotham Racing 4 in 2007, Bizarre Creations lost the rights of developing the next installment of PGR for being acquired by Activision and wanted to make a spiritual successor, so they made Blur, the gameplay style-wise is a combination of PGR, WipEout, and Quantum Redshift.

In 2011, Activision closed down Bizarre Creations which made the racing fans feel very upset just like how Sony closed down Psygnosis and Evolution Studios back in 2012 and 2016 respectively.

I hope one day Activision will able to resurrect it or either Microsoft purchase the IP for the next-gen console era!

Blur features:

  • Licensed high-performance cars ranging from Ford GT, BMW 1M, Audi R8, Nissan Skyline GTR R34, Ford Mustang GT-R Concept, etc.
  • It takes place in real-world locations e.g Brighton (UK), San Francisco (US), etc.
  • Power-Ups' functionality is similar to WipEout and Quantum Redshift.
  • Sub-Genre: Combat Street Racing

What I've known about Sonic & All-Stars Racing; In around 2009, Sega wanted a kart racer as a spiritual successor to Sonic Drift and answer to Nintendo's Mario Kart Wii. So they wanted to see Sonic and other Sega characters to join in a combat kart racing league, with the gameplay mixture of Mario Kart, Diddy Kong Racing and Crash Team Racing.

Sonic & All-Stars Racing features:

  • Characters from several Sega IPs.
  • Cartoony go-karts, bikes, etc.
  • It takes place in cartoony fantasy worlds.
  • Power-Ups' functionality is similar to Mario Kart, Diddy Kong Racing and Crash Team Racing.
  • Sub-Genre: Kart Racing

Question: Which IP you reckon it will be more fitted for Xbox Series X/Playstation 5 and PC's library of racing games in your opinion?

P.S I vote for Blur while leaving Sonic & All-Stars Racing in the dust! Because I much more prefer realistic sports cars way over any cartoony go-karts!

Blur looks like someone rubbed shit all over the screen, it's kind of an ugly game.

Sonic Racing is dope. Although it hurts Sega is practically saying "Hey, remember all these games we use to make we no longer give a shit about?".

Blur 2 on next gen would be incredible one of my favourite racers of last generation. No doubt we will see another sonic racing game I just wish it would include sega characters over sonic.

Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing gets my vote. Best Mario Kart clone that I’ve played.

Vote goes to Sonic. I've played both, but way too little to form a good opinion about them, but Sonic looks more up my alley.

No, i'm saying I would like both as Sonic Racing is the best kart game, better than Mario Kart easily.

For Blur, it's still more fun than Wipeout and Quantum Redshift in my opinion.

I have no doubts about that. Wipeout is a snoozefest and Quantum Redshift looks even worse.

Lol, you mad?

You are upset about the fact that the realistic-looking sports cars are much more popular than cartoony go-karts when it comes to Xbox, Playstation and PC's library of racing games.

I knew it you would vote for Sonic Racing because I can tell that you personally prefer cartoony go-karts over realistic cars.

So have you tried Blur before?

I still can't help but think that a Blur 2 would require Nintendo EAD to revive it, but you'd be looking at a Switch exclusive. Then again, would I mind seeing a Ford F150 run things over with a bullet bill?

Okay. I love Ford F150 so much since it's really fun to use for off-road racing.

Also, have you ever played Project Gotham Racing?

@mclarenmaster18: Eh, I wouldn’t necessarily say that I prefer cartoony go-karts over real cars per se as I enjoy both and actually play more driving games with “real cars” in them. Sonic & Sega All-Stars as a whole package was just something that interested me more then Blur. I’ve never played Blur and just don’t have enough interest to ever do so.

Of the two that's an easy pick for Sonic, but I don't really care about either. How about a new Lego Racers and another new Mario Kart. A new Lego Racers would be awesome.. that game kicked ass back in the day. While we're at it how about a new Excite Truck (or something similar) and a new ATV Offroad as well.

Oh, I also heard there is a rumor of a Nintendo 1st party title coming out by holiday 2020 which could be Excite Truck or something.

@Archangel3371: For my experience with these 2.

The reasons why I much more prefer Blur way over Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing because of:

  1. Realistic sports cars
  2. Driving model/physics
  3. Power-ups
  4. Tracks
  5. Soundtracks
  6. Characters

Same goes that I much more prefer WipEout way over Crash Team Racing.

I want a Sonic kart game that's on par with Mario Kart 8, meaning Sega needs to bring all their old IPs to the race and a ton of tracks.

@mclarenmaster18: Why would I be mad? I play and enjoy "realistic" racing games like Forza 7, GT Sport and I also play older kart racers like Diddy Kong Racing on N64. I'm just saying your whole schtick of "would you rather play *insert random racing franchise* or *insert random kart racer* is just tired and boring. Do you ever play anything besides racing games?

Bizarre Creations is gone, so Blur IP is dead too. It wasn't even that good anyways though had some qualities. If I can wish a dead studio bring back a dead IP for combat tacing, I choose we get Blackrock so we can get Split/Second. If Bizarre Creations should be brought back for anything, it should be to give us one last Geometry Wars, GW2 was the best last one, the other one made by that other studio wasn't that good, didn't have the same love Bizarre Creations had for neon and particles.

I also sometimes play FPS like Halo.

All star racing was just plain fun with vivid arcadish eye candy. Then again so is Mario Kart 8. Very imaginative tracks that I bet are even more fun while on LSD.

Blur...eh....lol okay.
