The Getaway by Sony

Game Monkeys
5 March 2013
  • Summary: If they could have cleaned up the controls and kept the graphics up to date this game would have been a keeper hands down. As it stands, the story alone still makes it worth a play through but, in the end, the gameplay will leave you wanting.
  • Pros: Amazing story and script.
  • Cons: Unfortunately inferior gameplay to others of its type.

  • Conclusion: The Getaway is a very impressive title and is one that every PS2 owner should have in their collection, with the driving aspect of the game proving to be enjoyable enough on it's own, and the sort of thing that Londoners and foreign tourists would really appreciated on it's own.

  • Excerpt: Team Soho, the minds behind The Getaway didn’t take the idea of an interactive movie lightly. Nothing Videogame-ish gets in the way of the illision of complete cinematic immersion within The Getaway. Health bars? Street Maps? Ammo displays?

  • Excerpt: This simple two-word mantra hangs below the Team Soho logo in the back of The Getaway's manual, and it's perhaps the most perfect way to sum up the experience of the brainchild of dozens of folks' three-plus year effort to meld the world of cinema with that of the videogame.

  • Excerpt: It seems that the race is on to get a truly successful Grand Theft Auto clone out on the market; many companies are staunchly denying that their games have anything to do with the GTA series, but I am seeing quite a few parallels in some of these games.
