Hg (Mercurial) is good enough and the ui of Git is
only considered hard because all the internal commands are
visible in your normal PATH. If you need to accomplish
something complicated it's good to have the commands
and if you can't ignore them it makes Git look complex.

For a decent comparison have a look at the following article:
