+ Nice driving model and physics
+ The amount of destruction caused when driving around
+ Lots of stuff (missions etc.) to do
+ Can be run on lower-end PCs
+ Glitch free gameplay
+ Large explorable area...

EDIT (12/28/2015): I see too many reviews discussing that the Uplay installer that comes with this is broken. So I decided to remedy that. In order to launch this game, you must do a very simple thing.
Make sure you have Uplay already installed (can be from another game, just has to be installed and updated), then launch the game like you would for the first setup.

I've played over 100 combined hours varying from Xbox 360 to Non-steam copies of the game and I don't regret spending two keys to play the story for like the seventh time.

Very fun driving game based in the titular city and using a buddy-cop premise for the story, with a funky soundtrack and a large range of registered vehicles to buy and use. Whilst the main portion of the game consists of driving, what makes this game unique is the main character's ability to jump between different cars as you are driving, allowing you to perform actions such as head-on collisions with getaway vehicles in police chases or route blocking other competitors in street races. Of course, if you don't like driving games then this won't be for you, but if you do then I highly recommend it.
