Poor.

Dave the Rave "wayfarer", Amazon
16 January 2005
  • Summary: Poor is the word I would use. I was forced into buying this game as part of a PS2 bundle that I didn't want. I can see why it was bundled. Actually forcing people to buy this game is the only way I can see it being sold. The cars feel heavy and slugish. When out of the car, running around and shooting at things is so much hard work. You have to fight the game every step of the way. Just using the stairs is painfull.

2 reasons not to buy The Getaway

Mr Maggots "Loser", Amazon
9 February 2004
  • Summary: 1. All of the time spent developing this game has been wasted on 'accurately' mapping London, at the expense of gameplay. 2. This game isn't fit to even think about wiping GTA Vice City's rear area.

Over-hyped GTA rip-off...

generationterrorist, Amazon
30 September 2003
  • Summary: I'd heard a lot about The Getaway, almost everything saying how great it was. Once the platinum version was released I went and bought it, expecting a great game. Sadly, I was hugely disappointed. The graphics look mediocre at best, which would be forgivable, were the gameplay not so diabolical. The player struggles to target enemies in a gunfight, and sometimes he won't even let you fight back, rather just get beaten up.

What A Letdown!!

Chip, Amazon
12 March 2003
  • Summary: I was pumped to play this game and unlike others did not equate it to either of the recent GTA's. It is totally different and I expected that. The graphics are good but it just isn't a fun game if you are expecting something non-linear. The first time through the game you have to stay on mission or the mission will restart. There is no life meter and no measure of how many bullets your weapon has.

User Review

barry_mc, Dooyoo
2 January 2003
  • Excerpt: I've read that this is the most expensive game ever made and has been in development for a considerable amount of time, so it should be something a bit special. A gangster game set in London attempting to recreate a Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels atmosphere. To start off you get an opening movie sequence, obligatory for this genre of game.
  • Cons: "Unskippable sequences."

Un jeu plat

  • Excerpt: Mou ! D'une lenteur à s'endormir en jouant, les gunfight sont même pas passionnant, la conduite est une catastrophe, la maniabilité du gars est inexistante, les armes sont nazes !!! seule + que je lui ai à donner, sa durée de vie : 20 heures, ca va pour un jeu dans ce genre, je vous le déconseille.

Gott sei dank nur ausgeliehen...

B. Hagelstein, Amazon
27 September 2007
  • Summary: Das war mein Gedanke, als ich das Spiel wieder aus der PS genommen habe. Die Grafik fand ich eigentlich in Ordnung, der Vorspann und das drumherum machen sehr neugierig und wecken große Erwartungen. Die Autoverfolgung am Anfang war noch ganz nett, die Steuerung erlernbar und dann konnte man den Gangstern irgendwann auch ganz gut folgen, andere Autos kapern usw.
