Some of the missions are really hard, especially around mission 7. You have to really work hard at some of the missions and do them several times. But other than that, I just can't think of anything bad about The Getaway; and really, that's not bad.
Like I said, I was introduced to the Grand Theft Auto series back in about October. It came VERY highly recommended. I really liked the game and thought that The Getaway sounded, and looked, alot like the GTA series, so I thought I'd check into it. I ended up buying it and, although it does have some similarities to the Grand Theft Auto series, it's really a completely different game! It has a great storyline, great graphics, amond other things. I highly recommend this game to anyone who likes the Grand Theft Auto series!
