  • 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 ...

Very Disappointed

  • 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.

Horrible

  • 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.

What A Letdown!!

Chip, Amazon

  • 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.

Dålig uppföljare

Johan, Pricerunner

  • Summary: Precis som det första The Getaway är Black Monday värdelöst. Utvecklarna laggt all energi på återskapandet av London. I hetesen på det så har dom glömt allt annat. Köp hellre något spel ur GTA serien. Har du redan dom så köp inte The Getaway - Black Monday i alla fall.

Die Entäuschung des vergangenen Jahres

  • Summary: Sie sind Mark Hammond. Und es trifft Sie nicht gerade gut: Ihre Frau wird auf offener Strasse umgebracht, und ihr Sohn gekippnet. Sie machen sich natürlich sofort daran ihren Sohn freizubekommen, doch das ist einfacher gesagt als getan: Charlie Jolson, ein skrupelloser Gangsterboss, will nämlich das Sie für ihn arbeiten. Und wenn Sie es nicht tun, dann muss eben ihr Sohn dran glauben. Ihnen bleibt also nichts anderes übrig als seinen Befehlen Folge zu leisten.

Absoulut kein GTA Killer

  • Summary: Das Spiel ist von der Steuerung erstmal sehr gewönungs bedürftig.Im Spiel fehlt einwenig die Action und ist ist von denn Möglichkeiten kann man überhaupt nicht reden man ist sehr eingeengt. FAZIT:Wehr nichts besseres gewöhnt ist kann sich diese Qualität antuen aber wer mal GTA III oder GTA:Vice City gezockt hat der wird entäuscht sein.
