Summary: I just can't play this game. I want to like it, but I just can't. The controls are HORRIBLE. The camera view is a DISGRACE. I can't see where the heck I'm going. I am an experienced gamer but I just can't get past the first level. I keep trying then end up yelling and cursing. I thought about BREAKING the game. Now I'm here looking at what this game goes for and am thinking about selling it. I almost feel bad about passing on this piece of garbage to someone else.
Summary: Ok the graphics for the game are killer! no doubt about it top notch pretty cool. heres the bad..... no health meters, you cant punch anybody, (only pistol whip), your charcter is arrested way too easyily. The controls of this game really suck! and you cant adjust them to make them the way you want them. i really cant belive they made a game look so cool have such great feautures then make playing the actual game suck!!
Summary: I had such high hopes for this game, and it was horrible. Basically, if you love driving very far from point A to B many many times, then this is the game for you. If you like action, and missions that aren't the same kind every time, this this isn't the game for you. It may be cheap right now, but it's still not worth it.The controls are horrible, and the game's difficulty is just driving.
Summary: This game is SLOW and boring. The vehicles are extremely lame. Weapons are weak. Story line was created with little to no effort. This is a prime example of a mass produced opportunistic video game aimed at a pre-established audience. My advice is if you have played and enjoyed GTA do not waste your time or money with this game. If you have not played GTA then you might be entertained by the Getaway.
Summary: The Getaway is a repetitive rip-off of the GTA series and it's only merit is it's decent story line that cashes in on the recent popularity of British ganster movies such as Guy Ritchie's Snatch (2000) and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1998). The makers of The Getaway have substituted cinematic quality for any trace of entertaining gameplay. The driving is supposed to be realistic but real cars go faster than 40 miles per hour.
Excerpt: "*Click* whirrrr *kachink*. In goes the CD, and I'm sitting here, curious to how this game is going to turn out. It's a crime thriller, it's an 18, and the last time I remember a game like this, I was playing Vice City; so it should be promising. Oh how wrong I was. So yes, the first thing that happens when you start a new game (after the stupidly long loading sequence), is an FMV (full motion video). This bit starts up the whole storyline, and ...
Pros: Loving the fact that it really does look english
