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.

  • 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. However, I live in the East Midlands and only go down to London 2-3 times a year or so, but I could still only just tell what and where certain places were. There was just too much info for the PS2's computer to manage.

  • 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. I was however left with a hollow empty feeling after playing (and completing in a week) this game that I didn't get after playing the later two GTA titles.

Learn to curse in a British accent

  • 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. I will even write a simple pro/con review, since I find these differences to be ironic, staggering, and important. Pros: 1) A great deal of work went into the graphics.

  • Excerpt: The Getaway was going to be out at the PS2?s launch. Now, some year and a half later, probably the most high profile Sony game EVER has limped its way to release. It started with some obviously faked screenshots with unattainably good graphics, and ended with features in The Times, cries of outrage from telephone line providers and some pretty big sales figures. Ah yes, but is it any good?

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

  • 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. I'll start by describing the hell that is the driving section of the game. This is a real dud.

  • Summary: Please don't waste your money on this game! It's a driving game, set in a large city, and you have no maps available!!! The rear blinker on the car lights to tell you when to turn!!! Yeeesh!!! You have a horrible range of vision when outside the car, (you can't see enemies approach until they've kilt ye), and your character turns and moves as if in slow motion!!! (you're shot 3 times before you can turn to return fire!!!) HORRIBLE!!!

  • Summary: [...] Yes, the graphics in this game are delish (if only GTA: Vice City looked this good!), the story's pretty interesting (even if it IS pretty much lifted out of Guy Ritchie's London crime dramas), and everything sounds just peachy (the rev of the engines, the moan and screech of metal on metal, the rackety-rack-rack of gunfire), but in the end it won't amount to a hill of beans because The Getaway is going to make you slam your controller against the TV and spew a...
