too bad they dont make this kind of games on PC. it looks better than GTA to me, more realistic graphics. maybe i'm just going to buy a ps2 with GT3 and the getaway..... :|

I like that game a lot too. I've beaten it and now I just like to play through DC Carters missions, like Painting the Town Red....thats a fun mission, especially if you have infinate ammo on and steel twin MP5s from a previous mission and use it in that one.

Ken, i just made my life harder... I'm about to get a ps2 in a week or so, and it will come with 2 games, I had as choice my first choice, GTA and Burnout, but now seems that I'll have to rethink it.... :cry:

I'll try to help you choose: If you like fast-paced racing and action, then Need For Speed: HP2 and GTA: Vice City are great. If you like more serious games, then trade Vice City with The Getaway. Or, if you like stealthy games, try Metal Gear Solid 2. Sorry for getting off-topic. Anyways, a few months ago, I found the Maserati Coupe in a hidden location that wasnt mentioned in any strategies. If you want to see it, you can find the location in the Hidden Car FAQs (theres two of them) at ign.com (you'll see a second description when you go to the Maserati Coupe section). It's easy to find also, and very cool. Lets see if you guys find it!

I have both Burnout2 and Getaway for PS2... but I suggest you get GTA Vice city for PC instead because it's much better on PC.

Burnout 2 is an awesomely fun game to play as a group, or even alone... I love the crash mode... Best game mode ever!

Getaway is more deep... you have to understand the storyline... aim properly, as it's easy to loose ammo on innacurate shots... Autoaim usually aims thru cars so you actually shoot the car instead of the target behind the car...

Well, I guess you can't see the videos right now, becuase I forgot to pay for my site so it's taken down... I was way too busy these days. So I am trying to find webspace to restart the site, but whatever the matter.

Yes, you can hijack cars and do everything you do in GTA. You can shoot out tires, break windows. Basically it uses the same game engine as the PC game Mafia, the game engines are quite similar, same type of physics model too.

EDIT: YEs, you can Hijack cars, but the best part is that the ppl won't fight back when you take thier cars. You are also safe in a car becuase cops will never approch you in your car, they enjoy shooting you inside your car though.,

If you are a weapons freak then it's not for you, because for most of the games you can only use measly hand guns... sometimes you can use both at the same time (Lara Croft style) and you can also use an AK47, usually stolen from gang members... USING your hand guns... and they run out of Ammo fast. IN one or 2 missions you can use one of my favorite guns.. the MP5s you can pick 2 up and use both at the same time.

I was playing it on my TV Capture card... there's not need to wait for an emulator. heheheh :)

I own the game, it was quite challanging, a very good game, however it took a while to get used to the normal drivign differences...had the game taken place in, Los Angelas, New York, Chicago or another major city in North America...then i would have liked it more. But i somewhat saw london so it was all good.
