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.
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.
Excerpt: The Getaway follows the story of Mark Hammond trying to rescue his kidnapped son from by completing a set of missions for the kidnappers, while trying to escape from the police who wrongly suspect him of killing his own wife.
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...
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...
Summary: I assume since you're reading this you know the games premise, so I'll get down to mechanics. Pros: cool British slang, detailed London locations, hard-as-nails baddies. Cons: every British cop is a woman and a psychopath, lousy combat mechanics, awkward movement. The missions are very linear.
Summary: The good news is that this game is a breakthrough; a push towards dissolving the barrier between games and movies. It is a milestone much like Dragon's Lair was 20 years ago. The screen has been wiped of all the gaming conventions such as ammo meter, map, health meter, etc.
Summary: It is obvious what the developers of The Getaway spent the most time on and that is the graphics. I must say that I was very impressed by all aspects of the graphics in The Geteway. Each character in the game looks very realistic. The detail on their faces are unbelievable.
Summary: This game was pretty good..when you play it the first time. This game is similar to The GTA franchise but with better graphics BUT NOT better gameplay. The driving seems realistic which is a good thing. I thought the Profanity was over the top..Every cutscene has the F word atleast 10-20 times.
