Marc Ecko's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure – Review
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.
Excerpt: Developer – Mark Ecko and The Collective Publisher - Atari Features 3-D environment 1 Player Mouse and Keyboard controlled Windows XP Tagging, rep, street cred, busting homies and keeping away from the Man. "Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure" is about urban warfare on a different kind: one fought with spray cans and graffiti.
Marc Ecko's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure Review
23 November 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: 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!
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.
Excerpt: Les jeunes générations ont certainement déjà entendu parler de Mark Ecko, styliste et artiste renommé de la scène nord-américaine qui a surfé sur l’explosion de la culture hip hop, dans les années 80 et jusqu’à nos jours, pour sortir notamment lignes de vêtements et articles de mode très tendance. Associé au studio de développement The Collective, il nous propose sa vision de la liberté d’expression avec un titre résolument adressé aux ados.
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.
