Super Spiel !
selbst für die heutige zeit noch eine recht "nette" grafik
story technisch auch sehr gut gemacht und neben gut aussehenden pieces, tags etc sorgt
die musik auch für eine gute atmosphäre
einziges defizit ist die zum teil beschissene kameraführung und eine leicht verbuggte steurung
dennoch eine klare kaufempfehlung selbst wenn ich nicht so auf graffiti steht !

Ich kann das Spiel empfehlen, aber man sollte es nur Spielen, wenn man sich in der Szene auskennt und die Begriffe kennt, ansonsten kann es schnell langweilig werden. Ich habe ein paar Stunden gespielt und das Spiel wird im Laufe der Zeit immer schwieriger, wer Herausforderung mag wird dieses Spiel lieben!

Getting Up is a reference to getting your name up on the wall, not necessarily climbing up to huge heights to do so. But in Marc Ecko's new graffiti-laced action game, Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure, you'll have plenty of chances to do both. As a mixture of third-person fighting, Prince of Persia-like acrobatics, and frequent stops to get your name up on various surfaces around the near-future city of New Radius, there's a good deal of variety to the action in the game. But Getting Up has more to offer than just exciting gameplay. The story, dialogue, soundtrack, and look of the game all contribute a great deal to the flavor and authenticity of the package. The end result is an interesting and often-exciting adventure that should be appealing to most action-game fans, but will probably hold extra appeal if you're at all interested in graffiti and the culture surrounding it.The gameplay in Getting Up is usually structured like this: You get into a new area, and there are one or more primary targets that you have to get to and paint. There are also plenty of secondary surfaces that you can paint on to earn additional rep points, which figure into the game's unlockables.Painting in Getting Up is a pretty easy process that doesn't take a whole lot of skill. When you get near a surface that's part of an objective, an outline of your tag or piece will appear. You can change the size of it or cycle between a few different options, but then you hold down the paint button and go to work.While there's an element of stealth involved in Getting Up, there's still plenty of face-to-face, hand-to-hand combat to get through.Getting Up has a unique and effective visual style to it that gets across the look of urban decay extremely well while still doing justice to the enemy designs.If you happen to be at least slightly interested in graffiti, you'll get a lot out of the game. If you aren't, you'll probably still be able to appreciate a lot of what the game does, and you just might learn a little something along the way.Overall 7/10.

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.

Played this game growing up on the Ps2, and I enjoyed playing it again!

I can say though that it is not for everyone. You have to have an interest in art/graffiti

This game. I thought it's just mostly about vandalizing and fighting some gangbangers, but it goes far behind that. The controls are complicated, especially on controller and the game simply hates moving the camera. But the story will blow your mind. If you are a rebel in you heart, like myself, you're gonna love it. Corrupted goverment opressing the people of New Radius and you're here to prove that somebody is still free. The story gets even more personal as you learn about a member of your family being mixed in the politics, there will be even more motivation to put the mayor down. I like grafitti, some of them are truly an art. And it's still better to be tagging in this game than in your city. I gotta mention its awesome soundtrack, you'll be singing some of the songs a week later after finishing it. Let me warn you a little people, this is one of the old games that has checkpoints very far away from each other and jumping over buildings can't get by without an occassional fall, so prepare for a little bit of frustration and repettion. It really is worth it though. 8.5/10

All I know is what I feel
Deceive my eyes and distort what's real
Only truth will set you free
I'd rather die on my feet than to live on my knees

The grafitti art is great, there are grafitti legends, the music is awesome, the levels are interesting & different, there are collectible upgrades, the characters are interesting and different from one another, the fighting is good, the platforming also, the camera at times is a pain in the ♥♥♥, the story is progressive & intense at parts, it gets progressively difficult. Final verdict 9/10, deserves to be re-released in HD, with a better engine & a potential sequel.

Getting Up: One of the best games I've ever played. The game, basiclly, is a revolution game. its giving you so much things to think about. I also think that its the best game for Graffiti lovers. the battle parts on the game are also pretty cool, I have to admit, thanx to the game giving you a few ways to act while in combat, Gives you even more the feeling of a revolution game. The whole Graffiti thing is also one of the coolest ideas I ever heard for a PC video game, I actually have grown up with this game during the years and that is actuall one of the reason why I like art so much, especially Graffiti art. this game is the best. Highly recommended to everyone <3

Great game, the controls are a bit weird I still cant figure out how to sneak without holding the shift key with my pinky and moving with my controller but that should be fixed if you get the 360 controller mod. This game is a must have if you're into graffiti or hip-hop at all, the music is great especially if you like Jet Set Radio but its not as fast paced. There are some missions that focus on stealth but most of the time I get lazy and just beat up everyone so I don't have to sneak. Graphics are a bit dated since it is a PS2 port but they're not that bad at all.

Fun story, fun gameplay, great music, and amazing graffiti art. Definitely recommend this game.

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.

This is one of my favorite games through my childhood, i loved everything about it. If you're into Graffiti and/or Parkour, i would highly recommend this game for you. It was a great experience playing this, i still got it on CD somewhere. The graphics are amazing for an game that are released at 2005. First time i saw the game, i wanted it so much i tried to buy it myself (I was waay too young). Worth every cent!

"Graffiti was chosen as the main crime to commit in Marc Ecko's Getting Up after test audiences responded poorly to a game based on not paying parking tickets."

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 tho the graphics is 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 nice and the story is really good 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 or "Decoy 9/06" 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 and 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.
9/10 ★★★★★★★★★☆

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

An amazing game, a rare treat on steam, if you are into graffiti art this game is for you. This game has some graffiti artists such as COPE2, OBEY, FUTURA, SEEN, T-KID, and SMITH (they play as themselves) and many more artist that are featured. This game also has a great cast such as Talib Kweli, Adam West, Brittany Murphy (R.I.P), Charlie Murphy, Geogre Hamilton, Giovanni Ribisi, Rosario Dawson, The RZA, Sean "Diddy" Combs, MC Serch, and Andy ♥♥♥♥. Original music by The RZA and RJD2. Gameplay is dated. The story fits with the game and does not feel like a waste of good talent. The graphics do not look bad ps2 quality. The music and the art is true to the graffiti lifestyle. This game is fun and may even inspire some to make art as it did for me. This game works best with a Xbox controller and is working fine on windows 8.1. Thanks to publisher Devolver Digital for bringing this game back.
