3) the nuke detonation caused that from P1Spastic_NutcaseReally confused me when you said that. Mercer's been flying choppers almost the entire game, why would he be stupid enough to fly the nuke TOWARD Manhattan? Especially when we clearly see him fly it out to sea? No, it was Blackwatch or the army that destroyed Central Park and everything north of it.

I hate to tell you this, but the red diamonds are most wanted races- you know, to win a right to take down a most wanted car? If I remember right, they weren't red until I won them, but can't say for sure. The green ones are regular races, sure, but they stay green and never turn red, unless your game is different from mine.
I figured out the easy way to find what races you haven't WON. Go to the RECOMMENDS maps. The bright green diamonds are the ones you haven't won yet. I showed three on my map but once I clicked on them and it showed what cars to use you can select a car and then with that car go to the races and see if you have won that one race with that car. If you haven't won a race with any of the available cars for that race, then you have just found the race you need. I now have 100% on the single player game.ezyeric13
I'm trying out the multiplayer- I'm nearly finished with single player- and I keep encountering races which tell me to drive somewhere and "run the clock". I have no clue what this means, unless maybe it means to do donuts or drift in a circle, but if so, why not just say so? Why do they call drafting streamlining, for that matter? After God knows how many games, why have they suddenly changed the terminology here? Can we at least have that much consistency?
[QUOTE="ezyeric13"]I have the exact same problem, I am missing just one. I found most of the races by going to the easy drive and then races. If it has no 'Jump to Race' option, chances are you didn't play that race. If you find all the cars then you find all the races. Jump to each one and go through the races for that car to see if any first place positions are available. Don't forget the Most Wanted race cars you need to beat and then take down.
I am playing on the PS3. I have found all 61 races. I have only won 58 of those. How do I find the races I haven't won? Right now I am going car by car and golding all the races but I can't fine the ones I need to win still.
If you've done all that and still come up short, I don't know what to tell you. On the other hand, if it's a question of how to get 100%, the solution to upgrading completely lies in your customization menus. If you have track tires, highlight the option and there will be instructions on how to upgrade to pro (in this case it's to drift 5000 yards I think).
Cancel that last, I don't think upgrading has anything to do with it. Find all jackspots, win all races, smash all billboards and security gates and trigger all speed cameras and you will be 100%. Your progress in each will display under driver details.
I said the same things when I started playing this. It took a long time, but now I'm very glad they made this game. The crashes are still annoying, but I find the game is fully satisfying on its own merits. In fact, it's one of the few racing games where I feel compelled to play it through to 100% in single player mode, because by the time you learn everything you need to know to win every race you're nearly there anyhow.
I mean how many other racers are there where you actually make thorough use of every single car in the game?
What annoys me is that I can't find anything like a walkthru. Just because there's no storyline doesn't mean I don't have questions that need answering. Gamespot really let me down on this one. I guess I'll have to write it myself. The only thing that bothers me is that if I do that, will I be ruining the game for others? Should I leave well enough alone?
1) The nuke would've wiped out EVERYTHING, including him, if it detonated above land. Also alex doesnt want to wipe out the population in P2, he wants to make an army of evolved, cant do that if theyre all dead. 2) In P1 he thought he was alex mercer. He comes to find out that alex mercer died, and the virus just copied the freshly dead alex mercer, so when the virus "woke up" it believed it was alex. After finding this out towards the end of P1, along with how powerful he had become, its easy to see why he did a 180. (Although i really dont like it, since he went from being a complex character to the same old run of the mill "I want to take over the world" kind of villain. Yuk.) 3) the nuke detonation caused that from P1 4) that bloody mess wasnt from what alex beat up, that was alex splattered all over the place from the detonation of the nuke, and it grabbed a crow to regenerate.Spastic_NutcaseJust a few things to say. First, what nuclear detonation? The one he PREVENTED? It goes off time and again, it's so hard to beat, but after finally getting past that part, it never happened. I've played over and over I don't know how many times, but only watched the cut scenes once, so I'm sure I'm missing something.
Second, that bit about Mercer being copied by the virus makes no sense. If that were the case, wouldn't he have been controlled by the hive mind like Elizabeth Greene was? It sounds to me like that's what the virus WANTED him to believe. That moment where he says the knowledge felt liberating gave me just a little chill.
Third, if Mercer pulp could reconstitute Alex, isn't it possible that now there could be many reconstituted Mercers out there? This thing Heller defeated might just be a bad copy.
Or cool down hiding spots. EA was premature in cutting Blackbox loose, IMO. There were many things they could have tried, but letting go the guys who had worked so hard to refine the game physics to a thing of beauty was horribly short sighted.
Yep, no more pursuit breakers :(gunslinger024
