Realism in a ps2 game!

gandalf0987 , GameStop
12 March 2010
  • Summary: This game really, truly, blew me away. First thing I noticed while playing is the extremely realistic graphics. And yes, I know that ps2 can only show realism so much, but this game really pushes the system to the max to make sure that the game looks like the real thing. The fact that the developers recreated almost all of london's streets really impresses me, and it shows when you're playing. Everything is integrated into the missions and gameplay very well.

The Getaway

  • Excerpt: "The Getaway --------------------------------- I recently borrowed this game of a friend of mine and I like it very much, So much so I still haven’t given it back to him yet… lol. Look: The game is a type of mix between, Max Payne and GTA Vice city. Including car chases, and the fact you can roam freely around the city and not run into any “load zones”. One huge problem though! While playing the levels/ missions you can’t save the game until ...
  • Pros: Very good graphics
  • Cons: too much violence

Your not a true gamer if you dont have this game!

  • Summary: I came on here to see the reviews cos i wasnt sure how other countries would react to this amazingly good game. The graphics are great and i know where i am in the city. It is hard i admit but its worth buying it just for the free roaming. I've noticed that alot of people have said that the way of getting your health restored is stupid. You have to stand next to a wall for a short amount of time depending how much you have been damged. The maximum is about 20 seconds.

Like being in a movie

Amazon Customer, Amazon
12 April 2004
  • Summary: Playing the Getaway is like being in a movie. The music and scenery has a cinematic feel. I really enjoyed the game and I recommend it. You play as two characters, Mark Hammond, a former bank robber and Frank Carter, a cop. You play 12 missions for each character. The game is sometimes compared to Vice City. While I think the games are similar, they are different in a number of ways. In the Getaway most cars cannot take much damage.
