Graffiti culture par excellence!
This is what Marc Eckō's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure really contains. Under the supervision of Marc Eckō, creator of the worldwide known brand Eckō, was this masterpiece of graffiti history designed. Underlined by the beats of hiphop culture and smooth classics you are painting the streets and buildings of the city "New Radius" with your character Trane who lives for graffiti.
You start with your blackbook which let you use different kinds of art like murals, roll-ups, wildstyles or freeforms like sticker, marker, poster. You try to fight yourself to a legend in graffiti. On your way to the top the story let you fight against the rival crew VanR and tells the you who inspired the graffiti culture (focused on New York).
Some product placements like Nokia or Montana(cans) are not disturbing.
You like graffiti and you like to colorize the city with your awesome blackbook designs, learn something about graffiti history and to beat some rivals by fighting?
You gonna love this unique game like I do.

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This game is a must have, if your into Graffiti/Street Art, even though the graphics are outdated, its still really fun and really unique.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

One of the best games I ever played as a kid on the classic xbox. I have so many hours in this game but I swear it never gets old. This game is like no other game, if you want a graffiti game this is what you would want to buy. Everything from fighting cops to looking through your blackbook for which pieces you want to bring to the next level. I have to say though, this game might not be your cup of tea if you are not into the graffiti culture. You have to respect graffiti to see the beauty in this game.
