Getaway Black Monday

swapgame
7 November 2005
  • Conclusion: If you liked the first Getaway then you'll will like Black Monday I was a big fan of the first getaway. I liked driving around London. Doing missions and having fun. The new Getaway feels the same to me. London looks exactly the same as before They didn't extend it or nothing it just looks the same. The game controls are the same as the first one, bad aiming system, no control what so ever over the camera, And the driving don't feel responsive.

Getaway Black Monday

swapgame
19 April 2005
  • Conclusion: Having played and enjoyed the first game, I was a bit dissapointed with this followup. They attempted to fix a few problems that plagued the first game, and in doing so added a whole load of extra problems. The camera angles being the main problem in my eyes, very poorly made and enduces nausea if you attempt to stare at it for too long, although this may have been partly due to my state of hunger. Still, nonetheless, poor attempt.

Getaway Black Monday

swapgame
15 December 2004
  • Conclusion: Good graphics, great realism of londons streets, but i finished it in 15 hours, what a dissapointment. The extra modes were far to short too. A great game but far to short they could have done better.

  • Excerpt: ---------------------------------- When I bought this Product ---------------------------------- I first heard of the Getaway after playing Grand Theft Auto 3 and stumbling across it in a Game Station store probably about a year or so after it was released. As I mentioned above I believe I bought this from Game Station but I can't be too sure as it was over 10 years ago I bought it.

A very good gangster-style game, only slightly let down by its gameplay

  • Excerpt: The Getaway is a third-person shooter game for the Playstation 2 developed by Team Soho in 2002. It is inspired by British gangster films such as Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Get Carter. The game is divided into two halfs, in which you play as two different characters following parallel storylines. In the first half of the game you play as former Soho gangster Mark Hammond whose wife is killed and son kidnapped by a rival gang.

Welcome to the real London!

  • Excerpt: The Getaway is the British equivalent of GTA set entirely in a realistic version of London with real locations, famous sight-seeing spots and extremely realistic cars and driving conditions! Smash your car into enough other vehicles and you are left with a smoking ruin; as you prang other motors whilst attempting to escape the rozzers, you will hear behind you cries of "where's Your Insurance Details....

What else can you get for 1p?

  • Excerpt: The Getaway follows the story of Mark Hammond trying to rescue his kidnapped son from by completing a set of missions for the kidnappers, while trying to escape from the police who wrongly suspect him of killing his own wife. However I won't want to spoil the storyline anymore by telling you what happens, because they clearly put a lot of work into writing the story, and there's no way in skipping the dialogue.
