Excellent UK version of Grand Theft Auto

  • Excerpt: ---------------------------------- When I bought 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.

  • Excerpt: As a massive fan of Grand theft Auto Vice City i heard about this game and thought i have to have it. I was not Wrong about it. When I Went down to the shops to pick The Getaway up I Sped Home Plopped it into my PS2 and was riveted all day. The PLot is great, your Son is Kidnapped by these goons and in the process your wife is murdered, this changed your life, and you return to the life of crime you were trying to escape.

  • Excerpt: When I heard about this game, I was sceptical. There were so many games like it already on the market, like matal gear solid and Grand theft auto, but I was truly stunned when I first played it. I was simply blown away. To start with the graphics, the in game graphics are simply amazing. London is represented perfectly, with all its major site and roads looking exactly how they do in real life. Dont think, though, that this game relies only on its graphics.

Very under rated game

Chris Coderre, Amazon

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: I am a big fan of the Grand Theft series and when I heard of this game, I was a little sceptical. It seemed as though Team Soho just wanted to cash in on the hype that followed the GTA games by releasing a similar genre game, but basing it on our very own London. I read the reviews, saw the amazing screenshots, and heard my friends describing the game, yet remained sceptical.

GTA it's not

M. Niebergall, Amazon

  • Summary: If you're looking for a Grand Theft Auto, UK version, this isn't the game for you. The Getaway is a game all on its own with realistic controls (you can't look behind you, you don't have a health meter, there is no map), but what one must remember is that this game was made to be more like a movie/real life than anything. There are no health packs in real life, no maps handy. The creaters did make The Getaway fairly simple to use, though.

Deserves all 5 stars

  • Summary: The Getaway is a very underrated game. I'll state why... ___Pros___ Good controls Liscensed cars Picture perfect graphics Real physics One of a kind storyline London is perfectly detailed No health bars, ammo counts ect. You can run and shoot (by auto-locking) You can skip FMV sequences (by pressing R3 and L3) You can also roam freely (using a cheat code) ___Cons___ Bad camera Cops only run after you not the gangs shooting at you Leaning on the wall to heal yourself?

  • Excerpt: ~ ~ A wee word of warning before I go any further with this review. If you are the sort who is opposed to gratuitous violence and loads of sweary words in video games, then this PS2 game, “The Getaway”, will most likely give you heart failure! Right from the opening video sequences, every second word is of the colourful variety, and the violence is both extreme and vividly graphic in nature.
