The Getaway User Reviews
Graphics, Storyline and the game's locatiion.The bad:
There are barely any good cars and there are not many choices at all. There are very little amount of weapons and there are a few glitches and nips.Summary:
This game is very similar to the gameplay of the Grand Theft Auto games.
The game takes place in London. Your wife has been murdered and your son has been kidnapped and you have to do jobs for an old friend to get back your son.
Over 40 sq. km of London has been re-created in great graphic form and put inot the game. You can Jack any car from the streets. There are designed sets and 24 missions in this beautiful game. The game hold Digital Control and vibration function along with presure sensitivity and anolog control. There are 2 playable characters in the game, the starting character and...
Realistic Scenery of London.
Good Story line from 2 peoples perspectives.
Nothing like GTA.
Too much violence which is just not needed for a video game.
Nothing to make you keep playing after you complete the game.
Its a very emotional story line in some places (wheres the humour).
Bad character handling.
Overall this Game is fair, I call it fair as I think there are many things which should of been sorted out with the gameplay before the release. Un-needed violence (not needed for a video game)E.G Torturing ect. And the lack of not really having much to do after you have finished the story line missions just makes the game boring and it ends up at the back of the shelf.
Story Line: 4.4/5
- Engine has potential for future games
- Nice cinematics
- good, but hard to understand the dialogue
- bad controls
- a few missions are really frustrating
- very linear
- violence is over the top
In my opinion the Getaway was a success. However it lack the bite GTA had. In my opinion there was potential in how Team Soho went about developing the Getaway. What i admired was them going ahead and not using a HUD or visual aides for the gamer. I think this was ahead of its time for games. I played so many games where the developers put aides to help you progress. In my opinion they get in the way and make the game easier than it should be. Take for example crazy taxi series. All i remember it most for is following the "idiot arrow" and not its strengths. However saying this..in my opini...
Graphics, Story lines, realism, cars.The bad:
The map, speed of vehicles.Summary:
The game has GREAT graphics, story lines, cars and realism. But is it too realistic? Well, it kinda is and kinda isn't. I mean, you can kill people by shooting them, KOing them, running them down or even breaking their necks! But, unlike in other games, it doesn't take much for you to die. It only takes about 3 gun shots before you're severly injured. But you can regain some of your health, just lean up against a wall and wait until he isn't leaning against it. The story lines are brilliant and get quite interesting. You're two characters, Mark Hammond and DC Carter. At the start, you play ...
everything the cars the gta like thing the missions and hijacaking.................balah....The bad:
good well you can go on cars if you jump on them and smash them........but can you send me a email about a getaway demo at firstname.lastname@example.org
and so if you are chased by someone go by a sing post driving beside it then go infront of it and the car will crash!!!
and holding a hostage will either get them killed or they can only shoot you in the head so thats were they'l shoot you and you die.
killing cops lowers there population..........
send me the email and ill give you a walkthrough cheats that arent evn displayed on the internet and so much more k
the gettaway is so awsome not for a...
its a great game, if you want free roam then just search a site or just enter (triangle,triangle,triangle,left,square,triangle,triangle,triangle,left,circle)this will give you free roam.enter it at the beggining of the bame when the music is playing and you are about to play.The bad:
i found in free roam mode its annoying cos your not sure where to go for fun, like buckingham palace, where is that when your in the middle of china town?well the good thing is that in the english version you get a map so its not a problem, unless your me and have borrowed it, so all you do is ask a friend, scan it, copy it then paste it on a web page for everyone to get.i will be doing this in about 10 mins time so if you want it then you will have to try some means of contacting me through this user review thing we are onSummary:
oh there are also loads of hidden cars n stuff.like tanks and tvr's, lotus, go karts, golf buggies, pug 306 modified, there is more fun on this game than most people think, just surf around you'll find out
