Quoted from The Getaway Reviews:Check out these quotes from The Getaway reviews & previews
"The mix of PlayStation2 hardware power, real-time 3D graphics, and 3D scanning and motion capture has enabled Sony Computer Entertainment Europe to create a game unlike anything that has come before it."
"...in the same way that Max Payne riled some of the more cynical elements of the press, The Getaway will too. There are areas you can pick holes in if you want to and people undoubtedly will, but by the same token you could do the same with just about any great game ever released. Our advice is appreciate it for what it is: a tense, challenging, utterly compelling, and well crafted, well paced piece of digital entertainment."
"Despite its frustratingly imperfect state, The Getaway is still a tremendously enjoyable experience. On a technical level its a major achievement, with a superbly realised graphics engine, but on a gameplay level its neither the best driving game, nor the best stealth-based shooter, and some of you will have issues with the hammy voice acting (and maybe the race driven plot)."
"If youre looking for a good story, youll find it scattered through the quality cutscenes in this title. Just be prepared to suffer through a lot of annoying gameplay to find it."
"London Bridge isn't falling down, but far too many things in this game are. Game elements like meters, scores, and arrows are done away with, but sadly so are tight controls and a satisfying aiming system. A bloody tosser of a game."
