It didn't really bother me, but it seemed kind of cheesy how every blacklist member from the console games who drove a car not included in the GBA port was replaced by a new person with absolutely no character development who drove a car that IS included in this game.
. . . oh well, it was still a good game. Just not enough story. I'm still a little confused as to why they didn't even re-create a bit of it in text form. Adding audio to it would have been excellent.
Apparently it's against the ToU to give away cars in a racing game. No more free cars from me, I've learned my lesson about being helpful.
