  • Excerpt: "...is a disappointing return to the criminal underworld of London that doesn't come close to emulating it's predecessor - let alone it's illustrious American equivalent. The Getaway: Black Monday is almost identical to the original game yet somehow falls short of the first installment. The high speed pursuits through the carefully replicated streets of London remain the same. There are a handful of new vehicles (including motorcycles) available to ...
  • Pros: The impressively accurate simulation of London
  • Cons: The less than impressive gameplay !

The Getaway

Peter Thornton, amazon.co.uk
29 July 2005
  • Summary: The controls are a complete pain in this game. You find yourself continuosly running into walls etc. Even with the crummy controls the game is far too easy. There is an auto-aim button that you can hold down and fire continuosly at your enemies. This allows you to kill your opponents with no skill at all. If they shoot you all you have to do is lean against a wall and you recover.

Not what i expected

  • Summary: I really loved first Getaway, and i really like this one. But even it has better graphics quality and it's smooth, i like by far GTA San Andreas more than this Sequel. If you can't afford both just buy San Andreas.

Far to Short...again

  • Summary: Another great game in the series. i loved the first one and enjoyed every mission the only problem was i finished it inside a week. When i bought the new i expected it to be a little longer but it wasnt, i finished it in only TWO DAYS. GTA: San Andreas is much better value for money even if you have to pay more for it. the gameplay is very good though. and stealth missions quite hard to work out.

  • Excerpt: "The Getaway: Black Monday is the sequel to 2002's hit The Getaway. Set in current day London the game again delves into the world of English gangsters and the cops that chase them but this time offers a (sort of) non linear storyline that you get to shape as well as improved driving and fighting controls. Continuing the approach from the first Getaway, the developers have mapped lots of Central London to give the game an authentic feel. The ...
  • Pros: improved driving and fighting controls from the original

Too Short, bought on Friday finished on Saturday

  • Summary: I've been looking forward to this game for ages after being a big fan of the first game. The graphics seem pretty similar to the original, but the gameplay has been improved with better driving and slightly better on foot control. My only real complaint is that the game is way way too short. I have only spent somewhere in the region of 6 or 7 hours on it and have already completed the missions (and I'm not even that good at these games).
