EPIC!!!

  • Summary: I rented the game when I was 6, but I didn't understand it. I Bought it last year when GameCrazy went out of business, and I have been hooked ever since. Although it would be easier to give hints in game, I learned techniques in the pause screen, like how to recover health. The game itself was a lot more realistic than any Grand Theft Auto game before 4. Playing as Mark, the vengeful ex-criminal, was a man-against-the-world type style as you fight to recover your son.

  • Summary: 1st thing that was awsome was the grafics i cant belive how good they were. 2nd the story was a little confusing because first 12 missions you play as a criminal the the other 12 you play as a cop. 3rd the thing that i dont like is that you can free rome!!! witch is pritty stupid because the city is london and i would like to explore it. 4th if you like being a criminal then a cop this is a good game for you.

  • Summary: I played this game years ago when it first came out and its still great today. It's a classic and not a GTA rip off. This game has it own style and way of doing things and it works. Its simply a great game that I will never get rid of. The game is not too short, there are 24 missions total. You play 12 missions as a "criminal" and 12 missions as a police officer tracking the "criminal". Its a great story for mature audiences only due to language and content.

  • 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
