If you own a BlackBerry Z10 or Z30 and you fancy a bit of awesome car racing you have to try out Blur Overdrive. Not only is it a free download, but it totally rocks! 

Although in each race coming first is always good there is more to Blur Overdrive than your average racing game. As you move around one of the many courses you'll pass over various power-ups. Some give you a boost, others will repair your car and my favorite is the gun which you can fire at your opponents to slow them down. 

In terms of controls there are three options with this one. I found the on-screen steering wheel to be best but you can switch to either a slide left/right or virtual joy pad. 

Accelerating is achieved automatically once you touch the direction controls and over on the bottom right of the screen you will also have a brake pedal - although I didn't tend to use that much. It's more fun sliding around those corners and the smoothness in the game is glorious - just like the graphics.

Although the game is free to download and play there are some in-app purchases if you so desire. Like many other racing games you can upgrade your car and make a ton of customizations, which if you are impatient, may see you spending some money, but that's your choice.

Overall I'd say that Blur Overdrive is a must have download if you own an all-touch BlackBerry 10 smartphone. The graphics and gameplay are spot on, but be warned - you may well get addicted. That's a good thing though!
