  • Excerpt: "...this Product== I first heard of the Getaway after playing Grand Theft Auto 3 and stumbling across it in a Game Station store probably about a year or so after it was released. As I mentioned above I believe I bought this from Game Station but I can't be too sure as it was over 10 years ago I bought it. ==Story== The story is split into two sections where you control one character for the first half and then the other character for the second half, ...

  • Excerpt: "...in a lot of missions the game will require you to use both methods. The character you play is Mark Hammond, later in the game you get to play DC Frank Carter a detective police officer. The game is very similar to the Grand Theft Auto series but is very different because of the british environment. You will find that it differs to Grand Theft Auto in that everything in The Getaway feels much closer to home, and the characters will have english ...

  • Excerpt: "The Getaway is based on Mark Hammond, one morning his wife gets murdered and son kidnapped. To get his son back he has to follow the commands of a gang warlord. The game itself is based in London and the realism is unreal. Westminster Abbey, Parliament, Buckingham Palaca, Hyde Park, The Bank Of England and St Pauls Cathedral can all be easily recognised. It is extremely easy to control Hammond and carry out your jobs. Your method of transport is cars, ...
  • Pros: original,london based,good gameplay - graphics - sound,good realism

  • Summary: This is my first Playstation Game I played. The game is fun and the accents are great. When you finish the game as Hammond you can play again in the role of the renegage cop Carter. Great fun! Once you get used to driving and using the controls this game is very entertaining. The game is very realistic. Be patient and get used to driving and moving your character and the game becomes very entertaining.

mr hepburn reviews the getaway

  • Summary: one of the best games i have ever played... it took me a week of playing Vice City and then playing The Getaway back to back to realise that The Getaway gets waaay more under your skin than GTA does. Where GTA seems like a farce of 80's culture (admittedley very playable), The Getaway plays like real life london. Its incredibly well put together. My only complaint is that the game has nearly no replay value. Once you've beat it there's nothing left to do...

Very under rated game

  • Summary: I don't understand most people have never heard of this game. I think this game deserves a lot more hype than it got. It is not a GTA ripoff despite what everyone says. It is a much more story-driven game, each mission ties directly to your character and the storyline, unlike GTA where most of the missions are just random errands. The storyline in this game is great and it has some of the best cutscenes I've ever seen. The voice acting is superb.
