Summary: THE GOOD- great story. good voice acting. lots of realism if you like that in a game. cutscenes felt like a movie (minus the ok graphics). it was funny to here the dialouge spoken with a british accent. hearing the f word in that accent made me crack up. THE BAD- complicated. driving around the city would have been easier if a map was given to you. sense of realism was too high. i did not enjoy how the cars felt.
Summary: I rented the game when I was 6, but I didn't understand it. I Bought it last year when GameCrazy went out of business, and I have been hooked ever since. Although it would be easier to give hints in game, I learned techniques in the pause screen, like how to recover health. The game itself was a lot more realistic than any Grand Theft Auto game before 4. Playing as Mark, the vengeful ex-criminal, was a man-against-the-world type style as you fight to recover your son.
Summary: when i bought this game,i fought it would be good and worth 2 bucks.when i got home i played it,i regretted buying it and returned it for a refund.the graphics and lasting appeal are poor and it's like impossible to play and complete the first mission!They don't even show you how to play!I don't recommend it.There are better games out there you know.
Summary: this game is so fun. the first mission was really hard though. but i guess that was because i was playing it for the first time. now that i know how to play better, i absolutely love this game! i would recommend this to 100 friends!
Summary: 1st thing that was awsome was the grafics i cant belive how good they were. 2nd the story was a little confusing because first 12 missions you play as a criminal the the other 12 you play as a cop. 3rd the thing that i dont like is that you can free rome!!! witch is pritty stupid because the city is london and i would like to explore it. 4th if you like being a criminal then a cop this is a good game for you.
Summary: This game really, truly, blew me away. First thing I noticed while playing is the extremely realistic graphics. And yes, I know that ps2 can only show realism so much, but this game really pushes the system to the max to make sure that the game looks like the real thing. The fact that the developers recreated almost all of london's streets really impresses me, and it shows when you're playing. Everything is integrated into the missions and gameplay very well.
Summary: I played this game years ago when it first came out and its still great today. It's a classic and not a GTA rip off. This game has it own style and way of doing things and it works. Its simply a great game that I will never get rid of. The game is not too short, there are 24 missions total. You play 12 missions as a "criminal" and 12 missions as a police officer tracking the "criminal". Its a great story for mature audiences only due to language and content.
Summary: For some reason or another I liked The Getaway more than any of the Grand Theft Auto games. Maybe it's because The Getaway isn't free roaming like the GTA series; there are levels with strict instructions so it keeps you focused and the story moving. Maybe it's the British accents (the game takes place in London) instead of the Italian wise guy voice of Ray Liotta. I just couldn't stand his voice.
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.
