The Great Escape Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: The Great Escape has a lot of problems. This is a genre that has not been done to death, so had the time and care been put into this title, great things could have evolved. Instead we are left with a game that has enjoyable moments to it, but suffers from a severe lack of detail. With little variety to the gameplay and no incentive to go through more than once, The Great Escape is a perfect rental. For those die hard fans of the movie, the game is worth your $40.

  • Excerpt: Forty Years ago a movie called the "The Great Escape" hit the screens. It was a huge success. Still once in a while you'll see it on TV in the prime time movie slot. Which shows it still has its kick.

Great Escape, The

The Next Level
22 October 2003
  • Excerpt: Here’s a weird twist in the "let’s cash in on the latest blockbuster film by making a bad game as fast as we can" mentality that’s pervasive among many of today’s large and small video game publishers: "Let’s take a 40 year old action flick and make a bad game out of it" instead! The license will be cheaper! Okay, okay, it’s not that simple and the game isn’t that bad either, but you get the gist of the idea.

  • Excerpt: I picked up the review copy of The Great Escape with caution; after the expected failures of movie/programme tie-ins of The Matrix and The Hulk (to name but a few) I had the distinct impression of bad things to come. Saying that, Starsky and Hutch had a good launch and was rated quite highly by yours truly, but still that feeling of disappointment grabbed my stomach. Prisoner Of War, released earlier in the year, was a good take by Codemasters on life in war camps.

  • Conclusion: With a licence too old for most people to remember the original film, the game had to stand out on its own merits, and has unfortunately failed to so.

  • Conclusion: Vom Ansatz her macht „The Great Escape“ alles richtig. Die spannende Filmstory gibt viel her und das wird auch weitgehend ausgenutzt. Sehr abwechslungsreiche und gut inszenierte Missionen machen viel Spaß und sind auch mal für die eine oder andere Überraschung gut. Doch jetzt kommt das große Aber. Während man in den Schleichmissionen, wenn sie sich auch teilweise recht gleich spielen, noch recht gut durchs Spiel kommt, überwiegt bei Feuergefechten eindeutig der Frust.
