I honestly don't get the high rating for this game. Theme is mediocre and game play is mediocre, My only explanation for its high rating is some rate it that way because they remember playing it growing up.

Very overrated pinball machine.

Played the hell out of this game for years in a little burger joint in California. I love the "scoop" loop and the shifting gears. Great music and sound effects. Video mode! Easy rule set and a fun play. I may add this to my wishlist for sentimental reasons.. Dananana....SHIFT GEARS...

What a fun fast game. deep enough for any pinballer, absolutely killer with LED'S, as with any pinball must be operating 100% to get full satisfaction. such a great game, people rant about games in the top ten, but in my opinion this game is right up there with the best of them. Ball on the flippers action is fast and relentless, the kickback is awesome and very much needed in my case :). the only thing that slows the game down is the supercharger, but, imho i need that break from the action. The animation mode is fairly simple but pretty damn cool, this game is the complete package and i think deserves its place in the top 20 and never any lower, if not even the top 10 i like it better than say 'wh20'FH'IJ'CFTBL' really you will be surprised at how much this game is geared :) towards the player of pure pinball.

I definitely DO NOT see the appeal of High Speed II over the original...
I played it and it was an alright game, but the shots didn't seem any fun and it was a little boring in my opinion.
Maybe I just didn't understand the game but it just didn't do it for me.
The shifter shooter was a neat gimmick and it was sorta cool how shifting played into the game. Still just didn't seem to have shots I really liked at all. I almost got a replay 3 times in a row, only a million off. So I was playing it pretty well it seems.

Oddly enough, when highly ranked players come to my arcade, 9 times out of 10 they head straight for Getaway. Its a classic, fast flowing shots and easy to follow rules.

For a sequel game, I think this one is great. Takes the great elements of HighSpeed and bumps it up several notches with a WPC system -- better rules, sounds, etc. For a Steve Ritchie game, this is one of his best. Three flippers, great flowing loops, and a wonderful toy with the super charger.

Simple rule set, super fun to play. Awesome theme, perfect design and execution on this.

This game is basically a remake of it's 80's counterpart. The rule set is too basic. The game play is fast and fun. Not a very deep game. Definitely an operators game, not so much for home use.

This is a nice game with a fun video mode and nifty flashing lights. This would be a fun game to own. I don't get the shifter thing..Maybe the location I am playing isn't working properly.

This is my first pinball, I love it, I am biased big car and racing fan! With LED kit and some blue LED spots on the play field this game looks very current. The weight and feel of the 90s Williams/Bally games are special! From the video mode, supercharger, 3rd flipper, gear shifter/shifting in game play, cops chasing with red flasher and the ZZ Top sound Track this is a car lovers dream machine. I would highly recommend The Getaway to anyone who loves cars and pinball! The only downside is finding a great working machine because of its age but they are out there.
I have the pinball bug now and looking at another already very addicting hobby but in a good way!

I made this a fun pinball but dropped a few numbers because of the similar designs used yet again..the spring launcher is cool though

Like many have said. A great game to get a quick pinball fix. Simple rule set, fast action. It's a great Classic with a good soundtrack and great sound effects.

Great one to stop and go. Not very deep. Quick game, cool fun factor. Just not cool enough to have in my living room. The story doesnt go deep enough for me. Plays smooth and overall ' one more'

Great game, once you learn the rules and know the shots...and if it is in well maintained condition . A great game for all ages and fun for all the family.

When you want to bash it round fast, this is your game. Not the deepest of rules, but whatever you do, do it fast!

Annoying song by ZZ Top gets stuck in your head. It's fun hitting the supercharger, but for the price range, there are better options.

I like this "need for speed" type of theme. The game looks, plays and feels great. One of my favourites.
