This game is so awesome

I used to play this game alot then I was younger, on my old xbox and I loved it, I was so glad then I saw that steam released it for pc and I just needed to have it in my collection.

This game is a must have, if your into Graffiti/Street Art, even though the graphics are outdated, its still really fun and really unique.

All the levels in the storymode is good in my opinion, even tho some of
them are a bit unrealistic, they are still fun and a good story too:D

About the gameplay, the gameplay can be a bit annoying sometimes, mostly because of the camera angles, that sometimes can be really bad and make it impossible to see where your going, but other than that, its okay, its easy to control so thats good.

without spoiling anything important, I need to say this, because its awesome and this was one of the reasons I bought it the first time I did :D though the storymode you are meeting alot of legends, from real life, like Futura 2000, Cope2, Obey and Banksy (under the name Decoy in the game) and alot of others and you have this black book, where you can collect signatures from the artists then you meet them and a camera where you can collect pictures of unique paintings from famous artist, as you see them though the story mode :D

now to the graffiti part, you have your own graffiti but you can only change the colors on the graffiti there is available, so you cant make your completely own graffiti, but the graffiti there is, is really awesome and there is so much, both alot of different styles like, Murals, Roll-ups, Throw-up, Wheat-Paste and Wildstyle, with more than 20 different paintings, in each category. :D btw. this category is called "Pieces", where is a hole different catagory for "smaller tagging", called "Freedom" with styles like, Stickers, Marker Tags, Aerosol Tags, Stencils and Posters.

I really love this game and I would be so glad to see a sequel.
8/10 ★★★★★★★★★☆

The game can be fun if you can get past the ABO♥♥♥♥ELY AWFUL Controls and Camera.

In a game that requires a lot of platforming, why the hell would they make the camera that feels like its being controlled by a drunk on a unicycle?

This game is one of the best ones I've ever played.

Well, at first the game is pretty boring, but move ahead and you'll see the difficulties. I will not give many spoilers, I just want to tell you why you should play this game.

1. The story. It is really good story about graffiti writer who's getting up from bottom to the top of graffiti world, improving his own style, facing the streets difficulties, anti-vandal squads, graffiti legends and enemies. But that's just a few words about the story. The New Radius city is fighting against graffiti writers with CCK anti-vandal squads, Because the mayor wants his аss to be clean after things he have done. I won't say what he exactly did, but just to let you know, it is tightly connected to the Trane and his father. Decoy, the guy who do all these 9/06 drawing will tell you more. You'll see the war and the friendship between two teams, the treacheries, victory and defeat. You can't even imagine how big is this game. The ending is also very interesting and you'll be kinda shocked and maybe inspired by this game.

2. Soundtrack. Oh god it's wonderful. You will enjoy every song you'll hear, I promise, it is really well-matched.

3. The graffiti simulator itself. Well, that's just awesome that you can feel that you're real graffiti writer! You have a choice of hundred different graffiti pieces, and they can even be various, so, it'll take you time to enjoy drawing all the stuff.

4. Secrets. The game is keeping a lot of secrets. And challenges. Really hard ones, Try that, unless you're scared!

5. Fighting. This game is also a nice fighting-simulator, you have many ways and weapons to kill your enemy, and by completing some challenges you can unlock new fighting techniques.

Result: even though the game is pretty old it is really worth playing! It's really interesting and hard, I would suggest it to everyone. Just believe me, you'll be happy as you're complete the walkthrough of the game. You'll even want to draw graffiti yourself, believe me I wanted to and even started to. Or at least beat the game once more.
