Nick Collins: [Talking to Charlie Jolson] London is multi-cultural. It always was. Only people like you never realized it. I mean, you're like a bad hangover from a different era. An era that's about to end.

Fun, but not the same as the GTA games
4 March 2003 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

While playing The Getaway, it is almost impossible not to compare this with Vice City. The real difference is how I perceived both games. In GTAVC, I was wondering just how they fit all the different elements, including 103 songs, 30 weapons, around 50 missions, and a massive city all in a disc. In The Getaway, I was wondering just what took up so much space that they could only include 5 weapons, 24 missions and hardly any secret elements or cheats. If the PS2 is capable of storing all the things put into GTAVC, what was all the work put into in The Getaway? The answer is probably the city itself and the large amount of very cool-looking cutscenes that are needed. The city is 40 sq. kilometers, and the cutscenes, all together, are apparently more than an hour long. Still, they could have made this game much more fun if they had added some side missions and made it less linear. Nonetheless, a fun game for the few days it takes to finish.
