Storyline

The city of Rockport's league of illegal street racers is dominated by the Blacklist, a highly skilled group comprised of the 15 best drivers in the city. A new arrival to the Rockport racing scene loses his car in a rigged race with Razor, #15 on the Blacklist. After a close call with Sergeant Cross of the Rockport Police Department, the challenger must fight his way through the ranks of the Blacklist to reach Razor, who has since used the challenger's original car to reach the top of the Blacklist.

Trivia

Near the end of the game, when Sergeant Cross is ordering his partner to get everyone after the player character, the scene is reminiscent of Gary Oldman in Leon: the Professional See more »

Goofs

When the player finally escapes Rockport, Sergeant Cross puts the blue BMW M3 GTR on the highest possible wanted level and writes into the police report that maximum force is to be used against that car. However, when the player returns to Rockport post-game completion, the BMW is treated as any other car in wanted level, making Sgt. Cross' report obsolete. See more »

Quotes

Razor: [BMW M3 GTR gets towed away because Razor, Ronnie and Toru messed with your ride] Thank you for the ride. I knew you weren't blacklist material.
Mia: What happened?
Toru: What happened was, he was all show and no go.
[They all laugh]
Razor: Hey Mia, sweetheart. Winner's circle is over here.

wtf?
23 October 2009 | by See all my reviews

First of all, I know this is about 3 years late and you're probably a successful businessman or IT guy, but I just need to say this and it's better late than never, right? So I realise you may not like this game, but I think you're missing the point. If you haven't won any races after winning it? you must suck. Sorry. I'm not at all a gamer and even I can do it. And the bad physics and weird things like that don't matter, it's supposed to be a fun little game to just play around on. You want realistic? Hell you've got Forza. Any more realistic and you'd actually be in a car.

Anyhoo...the point is NFS is where you get to do crazy stupid things, like go into a turn at 300kph and somehow get around. Or sometimes crash and look like an idiot.

In the end, fair enough if you don't like it.

And btw, it stands up very well over time. Have a good life :D
