GTA-style game set in London. Different to the arcade-esque gameplay of GTA in that The Getaway aims to look like a film, or real-life situtation. The graphics look very realistic and there is almost nothing on screen during game-play. Unlike competitors (GTA, Driver, True Crime) The Getaway uses officially licensed cars throughout the streets of London.

The cooler aspect of this game is the fact that London has been flawlessly recreated on the PS2, enabling some people to drive to their house in the game (check out The game is very violent and contains a lot of swearing.
The first Getaway is about an ex-criminal, Mark Hammond, whose wife is shot dead and his son kidnapped. He is then blackmailed into doing the kidnapper's dirty work throughout the game. On the other side of the story is DC Frank Carter who is constantly working on bringing the kidnapper to justice.

The second game (Black Monday) uses a similar method of dividing the story. A bank-job by a bunch of opportunists goes awry and most of them are killed, prompting Eddie (a boxer) to go out on a personal mission to kill the guy responsible for their deaths. At the same time SO19 cop Ben Mitchell is always right behind Eddie, cleaning up the mess he makes, until they finally meet. This game has multiple endings depending on the way you complete certain missions.
