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.
+ 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.
- 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.
