The Getaway – Consumer Guide

Chi Kong Lui's picture

According to ESRB, this game contains: Blood, Drug Reference, Strong Language, Strong Sexual Content, Violence

Parents, The Getaway is clearly made for adults. If you don't like hearing profanity, mentions of drugs and sex in your household, steer your child away from The Getaway.

Fans of Grand Theft Auto III should be weary that The Getaway is not a clone of the popular title. The Getaway pays more attention to story and is linear in design.

Mature gamers may want to take a look at The Getaway for its groundbreaking treatment of game design and its sophisticated content.

Deaf and hearing-impaired gamers will have no problem keeping up with the story since subtitles can be applied to the cutscenes, but they should also be aware that during the actual gameplay, there aren't any subtitles and there are occasions where direction is provided via audio clues. It's nothing that makes the game impossible to finish, but it is worth noting.
