Getaway Black Monday

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: This game was VERY highly anticipated by all in the gaming world. The main feature being that it was set in London, and the reasearch and development team had spent two years compiling hundereds of photos and diagrams of the london streets and buildings.

not very impressed

  • Summary: I was surprised at how poor this game was. It was well-hyped at the time and I've now got round to catching up with it on platinum. The game shows a lot of promise but almost all of it unfulfilled.

  • Excerpt: I brought this game with the idea it was a GTA type game which meant lots of mindless violence and a bit of driving around which would suit me fine while I was trying to aviod doing Uni work.

  • Summary: I must emphasize how much I wanted to like this game, how much slack I was willing to cut it, and that I still was so disappointed that I was actually compelled to warn against it's purchase.

It started with some obviously faked screenshots with unattainably good graphics, and ended with features in The Times, cries of outrage...

Too much of a movie and not enough of a game.

MessiahMan, Amazon
27 March 2003
  • Summary: Try as I might, after the initial time I spent playing the first two levels, I can only play this game in ten minute increments before throwing down my controller due to sloppy controls, a completely horrible camera system, and unskippable, unpauseable cutscenes that last too long.

"Restart mission?" Yes - over and over and over and...

Diego Baz, Amazon
