Getaway Black Monday

swapgame
7 November 2005
  • 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.

Getaway Black Monday

swapgame
15 December 2004
  • 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.

Great game, but police & pedestrians notoriously poorly coded!

  • Summary: I had an urge to revisit this game after many years sans playing it, I did, and I won't bore you with the general synopsis of the game if you're looking to revisit it too and re-perchase it, But I DO have to remind/warn previous and first-time buyers two major points, ones which forced me to quit...

Not great in comparison to GTA

  • Excerpt: The Getaway is set up as a sort of Guy Ritchie film meets Grand Theft Auto game, with driving meeting gangsters in a full on cockney collision. Grapically the game is pretty good, using the full capacity of the PS2 to recreate the streets of London in such detail, that on a recent visit I was able...

Its a mix

  • Summary: This game is good for its exceptional storyline, the graphics of the huge London setting and the controls (which include everything from grabbing human shields to using a doorway to gauge where the enemy is). The problems lie in two areas.

  • Excerpt: The Getaway was apparently a very highly anticipated game even back in the days before the launch of Sony's PS2 console. Yet somehow it has managed to slip through my own gaming radar almost completely undetected; I knew the name and the promotional posters but couldn't have told you anything more...

Slightly above average.

  • Summary: The Getaway, a game which wants to be a film. It's sort of typical of the gaming genre that if this had been written as a film, it would have gotten nowhere near production. The game has many problems. It's very glitchy in places.

Over-rated

  • Summary: I must admit, when I first got this game, I was quite disappointed as it was no where near as good as it was made out to be. I really can't be bothered to go into every detail of the pro's and con's of the game to be honest, but I will say a couple of points.
