PS2 game, "The getaway" - Is it any good?

Seriously, I am considering buying this, but I ain't sure if it is a rip-off of GTA Vice City (which I already have and love dearly).

It looks damn good, but aesthetics aint nothin to gameplay.

I'm probably going to get it for my Christmas because it looks great, although I'm getting GTA Vice City as well, so it will be taking a back seat to that, at least at the start!

Its a PS2 game, not a computer game!

It got some good reviews, I saw a few 8 and 9's out of 10! I think its a bit more linear than GTA:VC, but the graphics look great and I think overall it will be worth the money, but I'm guessing there will not be as much replay value as there is in the GTA series

Thats the thing I love about Vice City, just all the stuff u can do in it, like flying a chopper, doing stunts on a motorbike, or destroying cars with my fists

I tend to ignore reviews now and go for people's personal experiences (after reading such wonderful reviews fo Toca Race Driver, I went out and bought the bloody thing. I took it back after two days.)

The Graphics ar great, but i wonder if the story is as good, i mean it's based on a 70's movie. I had a simular game called Driver on PS1 and it seems to be almost like this, the missions, the driving etc. It seems ok, but just driving around and doing exactly the same as in the movie doesn't seem to exciting to me.

How do i get?
