This review is from: The Getaway (PS2) (Video Game)
This game(The Getaway)i borrowed of a friend and i was very impressed.First you are Mark Hammond an EX-Gangster of a london gang.One day his Wife is shot and boy kidnapped and you chase them and therefor the Rich storyline evolves.After 12 missions you become Frank Carter an EX-member of the flying squad(police force)and you get wrapped in 12 more missions from a more legal point of view(he is a bad boy though).The missions are amazing and thrilling.Drive any veicle you see or hijack it if its occupied.The camera controls are slightly annoying and dogey but over all sweet.The whole of london is explorable and very well detailed and recreated with much accuracy.This game as you may know is 18, this is due to obsessive swearing(offencive or not is you choice),A sick amount of violece including breaking peoples neck,shooting them in the head and gunning people down in the street but whether you do that is your call.There is also traces of nudity however but that is only at the poledancing club.of corse there is breaking the law,killing police,hijacking cars and doing ilegal missions.For the light hearted its 'water off a ducks back' but for other gamers could be the fate of them or others(but not always).Also for some is even more discusting as hammond gets beaten' up alot which some may find disturbing and on mission 5 or 6(i think but i know its called 'taxi for mr chai')shows a man screming for his life as he gets torchered by gangsters but only on 1 mission for about 1 minuit.If its guns your after there are plenty such as pistol(s),AK-47,uzi,(other various (sub)machine guns),meat clevers,baseball bats and other weapons.The cars are all realisticly different in speed,turning(control) and sturdyness.From nissan micra's to lexus this game has them.free roam can be unlocked at the immediate completion of the game.Free roam in two words:'A SHAMBLES'. but hey,some may like it and your not me so you may.i hope you like this wonder of a game and look forward to 'The Getaway 2'.See Ya!!!
