The Getaway: Black Monday User Reviews
So near and yet so far: A phrase that holds resonance in many walks of life; From missing out on a lottery win by just one number, to missing out on your hot neighbour stepping out of the shower in her altogethers because your damn night vision goggles wouldn't pull into focus fast enough. But never more so, perhaps than in the case of Black Monday. On the surface, it looks like a potential Grand Theft Auto beater, and indeed, it could have been: Several miles of London to drive about in, Steal any cars you want, free roaming, well produced cut-scenes...

I found a lot of action in this game and i have played it for a few months and i am not bored of it. There is a massive range of cars 2 drive in and loads of places to go. there are plenty of missions and it is quite challenging getting through them all. the cop chases are great the graphics are amazing there is not one bad thing i could say about this game it is one of the best games i have ever played it beats any gta game, they suck compared 2 da getaway, it is better than the first one, you get bored of the first one. this game is freaking SOlID it is nearly impossible to complete it, a...
Excellent story; decent graphicsThe bad:
Too easy to get lost; cheap deaths from unseen enemies; indoor camera issuesSummary:
The first Getaway was a great experiment. It featured none of the standard videogame trappings -- life bars, health packs, ammo counters, etc. -- instead attempting to draw the player in by presenting a gritty, realistic world where things like inventory screens and big green navigation arrows didn't exist. The result was a mixed bag, as The Getaway ended up being totally unique and incredibly frustrating all at once. Unfortunately, Black Monday succeeds and fails in exactly the same ways as its predecessor.
Black Monday's biggest issue is a direct result of developer Team SoHo attempting to...
Everything, everything, everything!!!! Mitch is hot! Eddie's hot! The soundtrack was amazing, the graphics were excellent and the detail in the city was astounding. This game is on fire!!!!The bad:
It would've been better if there were more missions and Mitch had more of a role in the story. Also, the fact that areas you entered during story mode couldn't be reached during free roam was kinda annoying.Summary:
This game is the best I've played in a long time. 'The Getaway' was a groundbreaker, the likes of which hasn't been seen since the orginal 'Tomb Raider'. However, Black Monday COMPLETELY blows the original out of the water. With a quality soundtrack, stunning graphics, an enthralling plot and characters you can really relate to, The Getaway Black Monday is a serious epic and gets a definite two thumbs up!!!
new vehicles and addition of bikes
play as 3 different characters
more than 1 option in special features
way too short
motorbike handling is awful
auto aim is not always reliable
i got this game on christmas day and i have just completed it today, but i have only spent a short time on it overall because of work and thats pretty self-explanatory that the game is short although the storyline and missions are good with the ability of playing as 3 characters all hoping for the same outcome in the end.
i also like the addition of more options in special features including chase, in which you are a police officer on duty and also a cabbie were you pick up fares and take them to their desired location and your customers can come up with some funny lines!
Some good new vehicles on the road
Appalling continuity throughout the game
Game too short
The original Getaway is still I believe one of the best PS2 games ever (the fact that I live in London helps). However, BM just doesn't do it for me! To me the final product feels like its been rushed. The continuity is terrible! One minute you're racing down a street in a Vauxhall and then it suddenly cuts to a movie clip of you walking into a building! At one point I stole a car (as Sam) and the next thing I know I'm trying to hide myself in the backseat of a car!
The finale is also very disappointing. For those of you who have not completed the game yet I won't give away what happens...
