Game description: The Getaway follows the story of two men from opposite sides of the law, who share an obsession of bringing down London's crime supremo. You'll play Mark Hammond (an ex-bank robber on the run for murdering his wife and kidnapping his child) and Frank Carter (a vigilante cop who was suspended from the Flying Squad) in multiple storylines set in London. Within the city's winding streets, indoor environments, and dangerous street corners, you must search for the manipulative crime boss and finally clear your name.

Game runs quite well, though pretty buggy on Hardware mode any API used. Software is pretty much bugless, Hardware missing many shadows and graphics features though both are playable depending on

what you want. Software is just very very intensive during gameplay but better in cutscenes. Recommended to select preset 2, then EE Cyclerate -2 that stuff.

Game runs



  • Original names: ゲッタウェイ (SLPM-65410), 겟어웨이 (SCKA-20018)
  • The game sets to widescreen when it is prompted by the 16:9 ratio setting in the PS2 internal menu.

Known Issues

Semi-transparent wall in front of the character during driving

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Minor
  • Description: A semi-transparent fog/haze wall appears at a distance.
  • Workaround: For the NTSC-U version, go to Config > Video (GS) > Plugin Settings, and set CRC Hack Level to Full(the default option). Alternatively and for the versions from other regions set Renderer to "OpenGL (Hardware)" and Blending Unit Accuracy to at least "High". Or set Renderer to any of the "(Software)" options.

Lack of shadows and other graphics

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Minor
  • Description: Detailed projected shadows and reflections of cars and pedestrians are missing, and during cutscenes.
  • Workaround: Only works in Software modes.
