A game that gets everything right.
Driving is clean and fun and quickly learned, and not difficult to get some fast cars.
Combat is actually interesting, not the standard run-of-the-mill haymaker punches. Reminiscent of Batman but not quite as demanding.
Shooting was probably needed the most fine-tuning, but it's not all that often that you notice or care.. and there might've even been settings to simplify it, I never minded enough to look to be honest.
The map itself is big enough to be big, and yet small enough to not be overly so. And ultimately you won't mind driving the distances you need to cover.
For once, it'll be GTA that has something to learn in this genre.
