Marc Ecko's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: Releasing just in time for Valentines Day, (perhaps your sweetheart is a closet tagger?), Marc Ecko’s Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure is available in two separate price points. The standard game can be picked up for the traditional $49.99, but for those looking to plunk down an added $10, a limited edition can be picked up that comes with a book and added disc that go into some details of how the game came to fruition. Plus, a shiny silver pen included.

The Da Vinci Code Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: There’s plenty for diehard fans of The Da Vinci Code to enjoy within the game, then again, there’s a ton of stuff that will have the common gamer bored to tears. If you haven’t gotten your adventure fix in the last few months and really need to explore some environments, solve puzzles, and unravel some very interesting story arcs, then Da Vinci Code will likely quell your thirst.

Marc Ecko's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure Review

VideoGamer.com
18 December 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: The NBA Live series still has some ways to go. While it's got some good graphics and some good options, gameplay leaves a lot to be desired.

The Armchair Empire

  • Conclusion: execution of a free throw, which I found is performed by pulling down the right stick then pushing it up in a straight line. However, because there’s zero feedback on why you missed or *gasp* actually hit a free throw there’s really no way to figure out why it happened the way it did. (While playing online, which is only tolerable, always go for the foul if your opponent is going for a dunk – he’ll have a hell of a time hitting the free throws.

Game Over Online
1 November 2005
  • Excerpt: There’s a dilemma that developers of sports games have to face whenever they’re creating their title: how much of a balance do you want to strike between arcade and simulation style play? Simulation style games are particularly good for recreating the realism of the game, but it doesn’t always appeal to casual players of the sport. Arcade style play can be extremely easy to pick up and master to a degree, but there isn’t necessarily a lot of depth to the title.

Game Over Online
1 November 2005
  • Excerpt: Like most sports franchises, NBA Live comes stocked with a number of new features. The largest change to the on-court play is Freestyle Superstar Control, which is Live 06’s attempt to capture the game changing moves that the real life players exhibit over the course of a match. Akin to the league, not every single player has the ability to perform these steps; while they’re good enough to be NBA players, not every single player on the bench is a phenom.

NBA Live 06

Operation Sports
30 September 2005
  • Excerpt: Here we go again. Another year and another batch of NBA basketball games - but this year is slightly different. This year, we have the Xbox 360 debuting in the two months and so we will have two different versions of each NBA game. Because of this, the development teams working on the games have had to split times working on them.
