Quoted from The Getaway: Black Monday Reviews:
Check out these quotes from The Getaway: Black Monday reviews & previews
"There are just too many design flaws and annoying little glitches in Black Monday to recommend it."
"I'm sure I'm not alone in feeling that an excellent interactive experience can carry a less-than-stellar narrative, but no vice-versa. If at least a smidgen more effort was put into making this game compelling to play, then I would wholeheartedly recommend it. As is, I suggest that only the most patient among you check it out."
"Black Monday sounds good, has a solid musical score, and features stunning voice acting. And while the graphics are also top notch and animate well (with a good bit of choppiness) there just isn't any real gameplay present. It's the same broken mess it's always been. Two years later that's even less acceptable than it was before."
"Sadly despite making some interesting changes mainly to the style of narration, The Getaway: Black Monday still has issues with fundamental aspects such as control over your character, targeting and a camera system that mars the overall experience;"
