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 »

Mia: He got away.
Sgt Cross: You mean to tell me the Most Wanted street racer happened to get away? What about the Blacklist?
Mia: Forget the Blacklist. They're through.
[Mia walks away]
Sgt Cross: [to his partner] I want every single unit after the guy.

Excellent Gameplay; Some Things Missing
25 May 2016 | by LadySailor1975See all my reviews

First, the gameplay and graphics are wonderful. The story was enjoyable and the actors were quite good (except the Mia actress). The game is addicting and has many great cars. I do wish they would add Saleen Mustangs and Roush Mustangs. Also, I would love to be able to choose to be a female driver with a handsome "significant other" rather than Mia, who I am not attracted to since I am not a lesbian. I do find this sexist. One thing I love about the "Fast And Furious" films because they have strong female leads who drive just as well (if not better) than the men. Le'ts see these games do that.

That said, there were a few things so wrong. First, Cross's female partner was all wrong. The actress was OK, but female cops are not allowed to dress like that! The fact that she was in a marked police car with lights and siren tell you she was not undercover; therefore, her attire was inappropriate.

Also, NFS: Underground 2 had so many many many many vinyls and body kit items to choose from; but this one had so much fewer and we could not layer the vinyls. I really loved those old splash-style vinyls and want those back! Finally, I am so tired of the perfection of opponent drivers; they are much too perfect: they seldom crash, they always avoid traffic, and when they rarely do crash they recover immediately. Also, I sometimes see that I very far ahead and then at the last moment another car gets this big boost of speed and zips by as if I am suddenly on a bicycle! Jeff Gordon couldn't even do that and we all know how good a driver he is.
