The Getaway - Australia



The Getaway is an action-adventure open world video game developed by Team Soho and published by Sony Computer Entertainment Europe for the PlayStation 2 in 2002. The Getaway is the first in the series and is said to have been inspired by British gangland films 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.The game focuses on two characters each with their own plot settings, being a police officer in service with the Flying Squad, Detective Constable Frank Carter and an ex-bank robber, Mark Hammond with both plots running parallel and intersecting before concluding in the finale of the game. A sequel entitled The Getaway: Black Monday was released in 2004.
