Getaway Black Monday

swapgame
19 April 2005
  • 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. The camera angles being the main problem in my eyes, very poorly made and enduces nausea if you attempt to stare at it for too long, although this may have been partly due to my state of hunger. Still, nonetheless, poor attempt.

Glad I Rented It

Robert Storey "adfaadfa", Amazon

  • Summary: This game isn't as great as some reviewers would have you believe. It is NOT like the GTA games. The GTA games are free, loose and fun. The Getaway is stiff, humorless and frustrating. I appreciate the ability to drive through "the real streets of London", but you feel trapped in those streets. They're too narrow and congested and you have to obey all the traffic laws, otherwise you'll get a bunch of cops on your tail.

Ned "N.", Amazon

  • Summary: THIS GAME IS SO BORING AND HARD. MAYBE IF YOU ARE A SUPER GAME FREAK YOU CAN BEAT IT. THIS IS JUST ANOTHER CLONE OF GTA: VICE CITY, BUT IN LONDON. PROS: NICE CARS NICE GRAPHICS CONS: STUPID WAY TO REDEEM YOUR HEALTH BACKGROUND MUSIC IS SO ANNOYING TOO MANY CARS, WHICH TAKES IT LONGER TO GO PLACES TO BEAT THE GAME YOU WILL NEED TO PUT IN MANY CHEATS THERE IS NOT ANY COMPASS TO GUIDE YOU, SO YOU WILL SPEND MOST OF YOUR TIME LOST THERE IS NO FREEDOM, ALL YOU DO IS MISSIONS,...

Verkligt men dåligt

putte_k123, Ciao

  • Excerpt: När jag köpte The Getaway så trodde jag att jag fick ett spel i god GTA-anda, men där tog jag misste och det med råge. Det första som slår en när man börjar spela spelet är den verklighetstrogna looken och hur verkligt karaktären beter sig. Detta känns väldigt inspirerande till en början, men det som först känns inspirerande känns snart irriterande.
  • Pros: Verklighetstroget, bra grafik, bra ljud
  • Cons: Verklighetstroget, dålig kontroll, dålig spelkänsla

Frustiges Gangster-Epos

  • Summary: „Cool präsentiert, aber schließlich doch sehr schwach auf der Brust“: so oder so ähnlich könnte die Kurzbeschreibung von „The Getaway“ für die Sony Playstation 2 aussehen. Das reicht Euch noch nicht so ganz an Information, hilft Euch nicht so richtig weiter? Na gut, dann schreibe ich noch ein paar Zeilen zu diesem Game, welches trotz interessanter Ansätze aufgrund vereinzelter grober Patzer in der Mittelmäßigkeit und somit Bedeutungslosigkeit versinkt.

  • Excerpt: ...indecisi nell'acquisto tra GTA e The Getaway, leggete la mia recensione su GTA e poi questa. Allora, cominciamo dalla storia. A Londra, una donna ed il suo bambino vengono bloccati da una triade poco raccomandabile. La madre viene uccisa (per sbaglio) a colpi di pistola, mentre il bimbo viene rapito. Mark Hammond, (il protagonista)corrse subito da lei, ma la donna riesce solo a dire: "Salva il nostro ragazzo, Mark", per poi morire. Mark tocca ...

se non parli bene di questo gioco...

Nakedsnake, Ciao
9 June 2005
  • Excerpt: deludente il gioco sony, nonostante le aspettative ci si trova davanti un gioco proprio scarso. l'impatto grafico è notevole, con un'espressione facciale a dir poco realistica, ma niente più, i comandi sono difficili sia da imparare che da gestire, la trama è buona, anche se copiata da parecchi film, insomma, non è certo un gioco come GTA o driver, invece i comandi di guida sono davvero buoni ma a parte quello non c'è che dire, è solo un buon passatempo ...
  • Pros: grafica molto decente, 2 protagonisti
  • Cons: giocabilità legnosa, sonoro rozzo, non paragonabile a nessun GTA

  • Summary: Quand on commence le jeu et qu'on voit la premiére scéne cinématique, on ne peut que se dire que ce jeu est époustouflant de par ses graphismes, sa très bonne histtoire qui démarre très fort dès le début du soft, et son action très bien réalisée. Mais dès qu'on commence à piloter la première voiture, on se rend de la lenteur et de la difficulté à controler la voiture.
  • Pros: bon commencement
  • Cons: apres le commencement c'est la cata

  • Summary: Meinen ersten Bericht möchte ich zu meinem Spiel Gaetaway Installation Legen Sie die Spiel-DVD ins Laufwerk der Playstation 2 ein,verkabeln Sie das Gerät mit dem Fernseher, und schalten Sie es an.
