My driving hand (numchuck steers, accelerates and brakes) is dang sore and I'm not sure I'll ever master using two hands to do different driving and shooting things at the same time. Still it's not sooo hard like some of these (flat out game up Resident Evil and the dang village square sequence) that you can't make it through missions as they give you a lot of tries.
I love the attitude and interface. It's deadpan cop, sarcastic comic book meets game. Being from San Francisco originally, I appreciate the ability to, even poorly, driving around and destroy stuff without having to worry about imminent arrest. I also like the commentary on the state of the cities and the issues ("you have to walk 40 blocks to get a parking space") which is exactly right and why I left and only visit through this game. It also has 200 miles (allegedly) of city streets so no running out of track like with many other driving games which bore me to tears and the streets are relatively (give or take) accurate in visual depiction.
If you wanna visit San Francisco for cheap, it's definitely worth it.
