13 Great Games Like Blur

Blur is a four-player racing game with many Mario Kart-style features but with customisable real-model cars. The combination of such cars as the Dodge Viper, Ford Transit and Lotus Exige (to name a few) with weapons, stunts and power-ups is both unusual and exhilarating. You can up the fun by networking consoles together in the same place to accommodate up 20 players.

Unfortunately, Blur is not available on Android, Mac, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S or iOS. However, we recommend the following games that offer a similar experience or theme:
