I would have to say it was a great game!One of the best ever!
Of course there is driving in this game,the main person is hired as a driver for the mob.
The story just gets better as you go with lots of surprise's.
As far as the interface you can go into controls and set it up any way you want,I even used pedals and steering whell for driving parts.
Give it a chance and you will like it,unless you are only looking for the standard deathmatch fps...lots of those out there.
