Final Breakdown

Gameplay:

The gameplay... running around arresting people is fun, but ultimately the storyline for any particular mission is pretty linear. The fighting systems... bleh.

Graphics:

On PS2, darn good. On Xbox with 720P, Widescreen, it's wonderful. Pay extra attention to all the stuff you can break.

Sound and music:

Lame voice acting on the protagonist, or it could just be the incessant one-liners. The soundtrack, on the other hand, manages to be a rap soundtrack without interfering with the game, which is a feat on its own.

AI and Difficulty:

Enemy AI? Actually it's decent. AI of the people in the surrounding areas? Dumb as rocks -- they jaywalk out to get in the way of car chases when you have lights blaring.

Controls and Interface:

Passable but unhelpful, especially since basic items (flashing badge, cuffing perp) are on a thumbstick click PLUS button.

Overall:

If you like GTA-style games and want one from a cop's POV, great. But it's no GTA 3 killer.
