[[ScreeningTheCall Groove never wanted to be a hero.]] He just wanted to race, but even in that, he lived in the shadow of his sister Jade, who is more or less described as Daisy Duke with a set of [[VideoGame/DukeNukem steel spheres.]] That is, [[PosthumousCharacter until Jade was murdered in a junkyard]] outside Lubbock, Texas. Taurus, certified [[AfroAsskicker afro-sporting]] BadAss and Jade's former teammate, introduces Groove to the secret life his sister led as an [[VigilanteMan auto-vigilante]] and takes him under his wing as Groove sets out to [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge find his sister's killer and avenge her death.]]

* BadAss
** CoolShades: Groove, Taurus and Malochio.
** CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Skeeter, who is actually a competent driver and auto-combatant. He is also a complete [[CloudCuckooLander space cadet]] and possibly narcoleptic.
** BadAssCrew: Mess with Groove, Taurus, or Skeeter, and the [[TrueCompanions other two will make sure]] you'll end up looking like a [[EveryCarIsAPinto Pinto]] after TheWarSequence.
** BadAssDriver: ''Everybody.''
** BadAssMoustache: Groove rocks TheGunslinger look. Malochio's might count, though his is closer to [[Series/{{Jeopardy}} Alex Trebek.]]

* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Taurus suffers this at the hands of Malochio's goons. Groove saves him from becoming TheObiWan (pulling his almost-lifeless body from his bullet-ridden wreck of a Jefferson Sovereign), but he loses his car and is forced to ride with Skeeter in the van for the rest of the game. [[ItsUpToYou You are basically on your own from then on.]]

Sound like a standard old-school action film to you? [[{{Troperiffic}} Well, that's because it is.]] The whole game is presented in the style of a [[TheSeventies '70s-era]] action TV series, replete with [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed made-up actor names]] arrayed over a {{Montage}} intro, a ''Series/CharliesAngels''-inspired logo and [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome one hell of a funkalicious soundtrack]] (which, [[HeyItsThatGuy bizarrely enough,]] was composed by Arion Salazar, longtime bassist for Music/ThirdEyeBlind).

* NoKillLikeOverkill: [[spoiler: When Groove finally takes his revenge on a trapped Malochio, he does it point-blank with his .45 pistol ..... ''thirteen times''.]]

* NoKillLikeOverkill: [[spoiler: When Groove finally takes his revenge on a trapped Malochio, he does it point-blank with his .45 pistol ..... ''thirteen times''.]]]] Of course, it's possible it's the same couple of shots, just replayed from a different angle to up the satisfaction.

* BondOneLiner: Groove sometimes utters a pithy quip upon destroying an enemy car. This also happens in the Nitro Pack with Taurus, Jade and Skeeter.

* DeadpanSnarker: Groove is a ''motherlode'' of snark. Listen to him carefully whenever he defeats a creeper. Particularly the corrup cops: ''"I've been drinking! I'VE BEEN DRINKING!"'' and ''"Do you know how fast you were going?"'' are but the tip of the iceberg.

* EvilArmy: Several missions pit the vigilantes against US Army forces in armed Jeeps, referred to as [[FullMetalJacket Gomers.]] Something is also implied to be "going down" with the army, evidenced by the presence of a military quarantine in one mission being some sort of front. This is not further explored, [[WildMassGuessing but it might have to do]] with the [[KillSat LARS superweapon]] in the sequel.
