Marc Ecko's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure – Review

GameCritics.com
8 February 2007
  • Excerpt: Getting Up opens with the most disingenuous disclaimer in the history of legal doublespeak; It claims that while the game presents graffiti in a context where "street artists" are heroic anti-establishment figures, it in no way condones acts of vandalism against public or private property. This disclaimer is, of course, utter and complete crap. The game is massively, completely, unambiguously pro-graffiti.

  • Conclusion: Marc Ecko’s Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure has great gameplay, great rhythm and an even greater story. I enjoyed this so much it’s all I could think about till I finished it, and I’m a player (since GTA) who must accomplish every little speck a game has to offer. The legacy of Trane in New Radius looks set to continue in a sequel and if that’s true, it’s going to drive me crazy until I get my chance to “get up” once more!

Marc Ecko's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure Review

VideoGamer.com
4 August 2006
  • Excerpt: When a 'celebrity' endorses a game a few alarm bells start ringing. Marc Ecko's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure, as you might gather, is at least partially created by Marc Ecko, a man whose celebrity status is so great that I hadn't heard of him before this game was announced. He is apparently involved in fashion and is good friends with P Diddy, so that probably makes him at least twice as famous as the D-list celebs that recently appeared in Celebrity Big Brother...

  • Conclusion: Actually painting in Getting Up is a pretty easy process that doesn't take a whole lot of skill. When you get near a surface that's part of an objective, an outline of your tag or piece will appear. You can change the size of it or cycle between a few different options, but then you hold down the paint button and go to work. You need to move your arm around to paint, and if you remain in one spot for too long, you'll cause drips.
  • Pros: Great storyline with interesting character development, Quality dialogue and voice acting, Amazing soundtrack, Really strong gameplay, Great-looking graffiti.
  • Cons: A few minor audiovisual glitches.

Marc Ecko's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure Review

GameSpot
14 February 2006
  • Excerpt: Getting Up is a reference to getting your name up on the wall, not necessarily climbing up to huge heights to do so. But in Marc Ecko's new graffiti-laced action game, Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure, you'll have plenty of chances to do both. As a mixture of third-person fighting, Prince of Persia-like acrobatics, and frequent stops to get your name up on various surfaces around the near-future city of New Radius, there's a good deal of variety to the action in the...

  • Summary: Ať se nám to líbí nebo ne, jsme doslova obklopeni grafity. Jsou na zdech domů, na bocích tramvají nebo vlaků... Zkrátka všude. S neotřelým nápadem herní tvorby grafity hodlali tvůrci nyní recenzované hry zaútočit na hráče. Jak to dopadlo a kam až sahá originalita námětu?

  • Conclusion: Durchschnittlicher Tetris-Klon aber total überteuert. Wer Tetris mag und das Spiel für 5 Euro auf dem Grabbeltisch findet, kann durchaus zugreifen, die angepeilten 20 Euro sind für ein aufgewärmtes und nur leicht abgewandeltes Uralt-Spielprinzip, von dem man kostenlose Umsetzungen überall im Netz findet, doch deutlich zu viel verlangt.

  • Summary: "Marc Ecko´s Getting Up: Contents under Pressure” ist, entgegen meiner Befürchtung, ein wirkliches Top-Spiel. Die Story mitsamt ihrer Präsentation ist fesselnd, die spielerische Motivation sehr hoch und wer sich Mühe gibt, kann sogar ein Fighting-Spiel für zwei Spieler frei schalten. Alles in allem einfach super.
