    Once you get over the fact he runs liek Cornelius, it's OK!!

    The best bits are the driving bits!!!! Th eaction is OK, but fairly easy!!

    I got my copy from Game so it is going back after Xmas!!!! It is definitely worth a long rental!!!

    Edge gave it 6/10!!!

    It's a shame, 4 years in the making and it still doesn't turn out to be all that good. Ive been looking forwards for this for nearly 2 years now, but i won't be buying it.:(

    Your exclamation key stuck down spidermanalf?

    I actually love The Getaway.
    I think it probably appeals more if you are brought up in a dodgy part of gangster South London (like me!)

    Red faction 2 does rock!

    There are some cool flying bits, and the action is spot on.

    Savour that level. Apparently BT have had a moan about that, and its being reissued without that in it.

    It's fairly easy, just remeber you have to find the other BT van and destroy it/kill the driver, the rest is pretty straight forward!

    When you come out of teh evidence room the cops will go ballistic, and start shooting , just blast your way through following the guy who you have to kill. Take loys of rests in offices (for some reason the police tend to stick to the hall way!)

    Half way down swat team come, kill them and rob their guns!

    You will chase the main guy into a room, just stand there and shoot the sugar out of him!
