The Marmite Game

ScottyDog332, Amazon

  • Summary: Honestly I only liked this game for the funny cockney accents, back in the day I found it fun to play but this game has some of the most awkward controls you will ever use. The control system in The Getaway is just plain horrible and the driving is very clumsy too, you really have to see past this...

A challenging and original game

  • Excerpt: To many, The Getaway was seen as a potential GTA beater, and a sign that Rockstar perhaps didn't have the exclusive foothold on violent, mission-based mayhem that they thought they did.

  • Excerpt: For its age this game offers a quite impressive representation of London City. When I bought this game I was looking for a viable alternative to the elusive GTA III and I was not disappointed. First of all the story is impressive.

Like being in a movie

  • 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.

I like driving in my car

A Cinematic Experience

Nick, Amazon

  • Summary: The Getaway is unlike any other game. Sure it borrows some ideas from the somewhat similar GTA: Vice City, but The Getaway is its own game propelled by an incredible movie style script. The game's story will have you as tense and excited as any good gangster flick does.
