Good Game: The Getaway (PS2)

A Good Game a day for the rest of time perhaps?

Today it’s The Getaway a 2002 action-adventure open world video game developed by Team Soho and published by Sony Computer Entertainment for the PlayStation 2 (PS2). The Getaway is the first in the series and is inspired by British gangland films such as Get Carter and Snatch.

Initially, the release of the game was to coincide with the launch of the PlayStation 2 in 2000, but was delayed by 27 months due to the difficulty of re-creating large areas of London in high-resolution.

Watch the video I made below showing about the first 30 minutes of the game. Some of the frame rate is slow in certain places.
