Game description: The Getaway: Black Monday offers more predictable driving and on-foot controls, new vehicles, a variety of mission types, and new characters. The story begins with events that take place two years after the demise of the most notorious crime boss of London's East End, Charlie Jolson. You'll take on the role of a cop, who sets out on a quest for revenge. By choosing which path to take, you must make critical decisions that influence the final outcome of the game.
Unlike other open-world action-adventure games of this time such as Grand Theft Auto Vice City and Driver III, this game features licensed vehicles from several brands to add to the realism. It follows 3 main protagonists: Sgt Ben "Mitch" Mitchell, Eddie O'Connor and Sam Thompson, each with their own unique abilities.

Known Issues

Characters being able to see you/shoot you through walls

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Serious
  • Description: Other characters being able to see you/shoot you through walls.
  • Workaround: You should use the superVU recompiler

Semi-transparent wall in front of the character during driving

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Minor
  • Affected Game Versions: PAL
  • Description: The PAL version has a graphical glitch, where a semi-transparent wall appears in front of the character during driving. It doesn't affect gameplay, but can prove annoying.
  • Workaround: Use OpenGL hardware renderer and set Blending Unit Accuracy to High. A depth issue will now be visible causing a ghost image to appear at certain angles. This can only be solved by using software mode.
