Summary: THE GOOD- great story. good voice acting. lots of realism if you like that in a game. cutscenes felt like a movie (minus the ok graphics). it was funny to here the dialouge spoken with a british accent. hearing the f word in that accent made me crack up. THE BAD- complicated. driving around the city would have been easier if a map was given to you. sense of realism was too high. i did not enjoy how the cars felt.
Summary: Great video game for the PS2, but has some flaws as mentioned before, Video game at times seems a little hard, the graphics so-so and sometimes it is hard to beat. The action and storyline is good, the vehicles are cool. The Getaway is a good game. but it can be frustrating to play.
Summary: For some reason or another I liked The Getaway more than any of the Grand Theft Auto games. Maybe it's because The Getaway isn't free roaming like the GTA series; there are levels with strict instructions so it keeps you focused and the story moving. Maybe it's the British accents (the game takes place in London) instead of the Italian wise guy voice of Ray Liotta. I just couldn't stand his voice.
Summary: I have three words for this game, action, action, action. A lot of weapons and quick shooting. Settings are a little dark in color and cussing is present. There is a lot of violence and even some torture. Not for the real young and sensitive.
Conclusion: If you liked the first Getaway then you'll will like Black Monday I was a big fan of the first getaway. I liked driving around London. Doing missions and having fun. The new Getaway feels the same to me. London looks exactly the same as before They didn't extend it or nothing it just looks the same. The game controls are the same as the first one, bad aiming system, no control what so ever over the camera, And the driving don't feel responsive.
Summary: This game is ...UN-IMAGINABLY DIFFICULT. Do Not buy this game if you're not willing to endure lasting frustrations in trying to get to the next level. They don't let you skip the looong ass cutscenes they made for each and every level, you have to sit and watch them everytime. PLus there's a lack of proper save in this game, they don't let you save until you beat the whole missions.
Summary: So, the price is right for this game, I do recommend it, but be careful. The whole deal with the VERY slow British cars can get annoying to those who are used to the new GTA games where just about every car goes lightning fast. The gunfighting is definately more fun than the driving, since while you're driving you're pretty helpless and can't shoot out of your car. Another thing taking away all challenge is that there is no health pickups.
An Okay Game, NOT Recommended for Grand Theft Auto Fans!

Summary: This game is okay. The story is about a wife who gets murdered and a son who is kidnapped. The father must get them back. While the story-plot is strong, the game play is not. Yes, you can take any car off the street but there is nothing fun to do with the cars. In Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, you can take any car, but you can add modifications (hydralics, bumpers, paint jobs, etc.) and race with it.
Conclusion: Good graphics, great realism of londons streets, but i finished it in 15 hours, what a dissapointment. The extra modes were far to short too. A great game but far to short they could have done better.
