Marc Eckos Getting Up Contents Under Pressure

GamersHell.com
15 July 2006
  • Excerpt: In Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure, players assume the role of ‘Thane’ a young street-wise graffiti artist living in the city of New Radius, which is home to Mayor Sung’s big brother, nanny-state style of governing. Sickened by the upsurge in local tyranny and exploitation, Thane brings his own brand of war to the streets in a bid to rise beyond the ranks of rival graffiti gangs to become the All City King, uncover a massive governmental...

Marc Ecko's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure

Game Over Online
13 May 2006
  • Excerpt: As someone whose experience with graffiti was primarily limited to seeing it on the streets and creating it in Jet Grind Radio, I expected Getting Up to shed light on the culture that inspired those creations while also providing a rewarding gaming experience. After playing it, I now have a decent understanding of the culture, and learned some terms along the way. As a game, it succeeds in more areas than I thought it would. Fighting is one key area I was surprised with.

  • Excerpt: As a game, it succeeds in more areas than I thought it would. Fighting is one key area I was surprised with. I came into it expecting some fighting, but I figured it would just be incredibly basic stuff. Instead, there’s a fair amount of depth to it. Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t like Virtua Fighter with spray paint - but you do have a fair amount of variety in your offense. Beyond punching and kicking, you’ve got combos and various types of weapons.

  • Excerpt: Plongeant dans une culture urbaine underground faite de tags et d'iPods, Marc Ecko's Getting Up se la joue Prince Of Persia des temps modernes, remplaçant les sables du temps par des bombes de peinture et le pays des Mille et Une Nuits par les quartiers chauds. Bienvenu dans un monde désenchanté.

LEGO Star Wars II - The Original Trilogy

  • Conclusion: LEGO Star Wars II bietet für fast jeden etwas - Gelegenheitsspieler werden dank Einsteigerfreundlichkeit und moderatem Schwierigkeitsgrad nicht gefrustet, Fortgeschrittene freuen sich über zahlreiche versteckte Geheimnisse und Extras. Das eigentlich eher simple Gameplay wird durch viele nette Ideen deutlich aufgewertet und ist vor allem wegen der Kombination aus liebenswertem LEGO-Charme und authentischem Star Wars-Flair einfach unwiderstehlich.

  • Excerpt: Chi ha avuto in passato il piacere di possedere un Dreamcast, sicuramente non può non conoscere uno dei titoli più chiacchierati ed apprezzati tra quelli presenti sulla defunta console Sega, ossia Shenmue II. Il gioco che andiamo a recensire è la conversione diretta del titolo Dreamcast, e cercheremo quindi di spiegarvi perchè fosse un titolo tanto acclamato, e se meriti l'acquisto ora che è arrivato su Xbox.

  • Conclusion: Estamos perante um jogo eclético e que raramente se torna repetitivo. Os objectivos aparecem sob a forma de indicadores luminosos, que nos indicam onde colocar graffitis, assinaturas a marcador, autocolantes, etc. O jogo vai-nos atirando desafios para o caminho, desde puzzles ambientais, lutas viscerais e até competições de graffitis.
  • Pros: Linguagem e banda sonora perfeitamente adequadas
  • Cons: Tempos de espera entre missões um pouco longos, Problemas ocasionais com os controlos ou a câmara de jogo

Getting Up: Contents under Pressure

GameCaptain
28 February 2006
  • Conclusion: Getting Up schafft es auf einzigartige Weise das Flair der Sprayer-Szene umzusetzen, nicht zuletzt dank der Mitarbeit von Marc Ecko. Es macht eine Menge Spaß, dem ehrgeizigen Trane nach und nach zu echter Berühmtheit in der Szene zu verhelfen. Leider gibt’s auf dem Weg dorthin ab und zu ein paar Hänger, z.B. wenn das Sprühen eintönig wird. Zum Glück kann aber die abwechslungsreiche Geschichte dieses Manko einigermaßen wieder wettmachen.
