Yay
-Best "story" for a racing game yet. Story in the loosest term available...
-Maintains nice arcade-style racing of previous NFS games.
-Josie Maran
-The use of stylistic full-motion video is actually pulled-off quite well. "Night Trap" and "Space Pirates" this ain't!
-Hitting poles and other object can fly back and strike another car, or they can run over it. Detail!
-Pursuitbreakers are usually cool to pull off.

Eh
-Chase A.I. for cops could be better.
-No motorcycle cops
-Mini-game after beating a Blacklist member MAY result in obtaining his pink slip. Not fair since according to the story, you had to give up your pink. You should get their car automatically.
-"Free Roam" is nice but kind of pointless if you can simply choose from a menu anyway.
-No damage-modeling ala Flatout or Burnout. If they can do it, why can't NFS?

Boo
-Some collision issues. I found an invisible wall near the edge of a fallen antenna, which resulted in my capture. Drat!
-Not too many cars to choose from, specifically foreign tuner cars (no old-school Honda's or Acuras?)
-Not enough Josie Maran

When you are on the run from the cops look for red triangle icons. Drive through the object that is holding the large object up. Drive into a gas station and drive into the gas pumps. Then all of the cops around you will automatically be disabled.then you can be free of the cops for good.
