    A good bang for the buck.

    This is a pretty good game for the price(Usally $8.96 at circuit city). It has a pretty good story that starts off weak but gets pretty integuing latter on. The voice work is pretty good and the cut scenes look nice. The... Read Full Review

    Doesn't feel right

    I like the story, the cutscenes and voice acting are top notch, but that really is about all that this game has going for it. The combat is at best clunky The Driving is just to damn horrible to mention The Graphics... Read Full Review

    Nothing more than I expected...

    This game wasn't much more than I expected. This game was pretty much just a remake of the fist The Getaway, they just changed the storyline. But the storyline was way too short, it only took me 2 days to beat this ga... Read Full Review
