About the Game

Play as Trane, a "toy" graffiti artist with the street smarts, athletic prowess and vision to become an "All City King" - the most reputable of all graffiti artists. Along your quest, uncover the mayor's deep, dark secret and use your fighting talents and high-wire graffiti to expose the city's leader as a corrupt tyrant. As you struggle to save a neighborhood from an oppressive government, one question stands out: What if graffiti could change the world? Risk your life battling city authorities and rival graf gangs - mere obstacles in your attempt to get your tag up. And in this city, not just any tag will do. You have to "Get IN, Get UP and Get OUT".

  • Combat: master a unique fighting technique and use improvised weapons
  • Graffiti: create tags in pressure situations, using multiple skills and styles
  • Intuition: follow your sixth sense to find the best spots to tag
  • Sneak mode: infiltrate areas and avoid capture as you creep silently through the city
  • Navigation: utilize a unique guidance system to "get up" and tag

I played Getting Up long time ago, but I remembered that there was not a game like this one. It is quite unique mixture of platforming/climbing + fighting the enemies using your combos and weapons + graffiti + some stealth actions.

Pluses:
+ very interesting story. You play as Trane who wants to become famous, to get up, but later you get into political intrigues and scandals and become a rebel!
+ Graffiti! There are lots of styles to choose from.
+ Atmosphere of anti-utopian city. There are guards and patrols who will shoot or try to apprehend you as soon as they spot you.
+ Music! It is one of the best soundtracks I have ever heard. Songs vary from hip-hop to hard rock!
+ CGI cutscenes. There aren't many of them, but they are very well done.
+ Voice actors. Rosario Dawson, Giovanni Ribisi, Brittany Murphy and many other famous people gave their voices to different characters.

Minuses:
- Not very comfortable controls. Your character sometimes just doesn't want to do what you want him to do. And yes, use gamepad. It's just better.
- Stealth. I love stealth games such as Splinter Cell and Deus Ex, but here it is just poorly executed. It is not obligatory, but you won't survive otherwise.

All in all, solid 9 out of 10! Try it.

Quit playing when it told me how to get down a ledge, I thought this game was about Getting Up

Also I would like to point out I was disapointed when I found out the point of this game was not to purchase a copy of the disney pixar film "Up"

Marc Eckō's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure

So, when i saw this game on Steam it looked good. I was not sure if it was a game i would like since i have to admit the screenshots on the store page makes the game look a bit boring. But since it was on 75% off, i decided to buy it. Which was a wonderful idea. Because this game is not only fun, it also has a great story and some nice combat. It's right i did say combat. This game is quite old, and so are the graphics. But even though the graphics are old, the game is still worth buying. I never had the chance of trying this game when it came out, so i am glad i can now.

I will give the game 8/10 for what i have tried so far.

Great game, awesome soundtrack.
Now with widescreen and gamepad support
Buy it, do not look at metascore, highly underrated game :)

I dont like hip-hop/rap at all, and I am neutral to graffiti/parkour culture. But game perfectly express and show the atmosphere of these subcultures with awesome soundtrack, voice acting and cut-scenes. Yes, the game tecnically not so good ( "torn" animation, ugly models and flickering textures and etc), but unique style of this game overcomes most of disadvantages. I think this game deserves at least 8/10
