I rented this game hoping to find the new sequel to the driver series a awesome and great game, but I found this game. Good points: cool cars, awesome graphics during cinemas, and a great storyline Bad points: can't get cool cars, terrible graphics during the game, occasionally freezes between each mission.
I do not recommend this game to those seeking a good one. And those who are seeking a good game, go back to Driver 3.

The controls are not customizable. You have to steer the car with the nunchuck joystick. Why would Ubisoft ignore the awesome accelerometer capabilities of the Wii remote and force you to steer with your thumb?
Movement on foot is especially frustrating. Panning the camera is done by pointing the Wii remote to the edge of the screen, and it is very hard to control what you want to look at while you are walking.
Also, the throttle is controlled from a nunchuck button, so its either full throttle or nothing. This is lame because at full throttle, the tires spin for a while before they grip. You cant feather it and give half throttle at all. Oh yea, cops don't like it when you do burnouts (which are impossible to avoid) so just driving anywhere near a cop causes them to chase after you. Lame.
Poorly thought out controls make this game no fun to play and if I had purchased it before playing, I'd promptly return it for a refund.
