SANS - Survey on application security programs

Review Combat racing games are like buses. You wait ages for one and then two come along in the same week.

Blur

Get out my lane!

Unlike the buses where I live, though, both games arrive with high expectations (and no shank-wielding yoots on the back seats). Their developers have real pedigree in satisfying petrol-head gamers. Split Second's developer, Black Rock Studios, created MotoGP '06 and '07, and the excellent Pure. Blur's developer, Bizarre Creations, created Metropolis Street Racer and the Project Gotham series.

But, despite their promise (and mindful you're busy with important stuff like work, family and riding with your posse-shooting banditos in Red Dead Redemption), I couldn't bear to foist separate reviews upon you, so I've put the games in a head-to-head.

To ease reading, I've broken the review down into five sections, each of which I'll award up to 20 per cent and... well, you get the rest.

Split Second: Velocity
