5.0 out of 5 stars Challenging but fun, 5 Mar. 2006
By A Customer
This review is from: Mark Ecko's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure (PS2) (Video Game)
When I first heard about ‘Marc Ecko’s Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure’, I assumed it was a lot like those violent street thug games like the ‘Grand Theft Auto’ series. After reading a few game reviews about it I decided to see what it was like for myself, considering some reviews said it was excellent and some said it was bad. This game has a lot to offer; it involves quite a lot of strategy in places where you have to work out how to get to a certain place to tag. This may involve climbing over fences, walking along beams high above a city, climbing drain pipes, etc. After a while you may think that this game will become easy, tedious and repetitive, think again; there is much more challenging events later in the game. One includes trying to graffiti a moving train while trying to avoid being hit by low lights, signs to the sides of the train, signs to the top of the train and other oncoming trains (which I found very hard yet fun). As for the violence in the game, it is quite strong but not quite as gruesome as some games. When you fight enemies like the police (CCK) or gang members, you can use sloppy combo moves. I say sloppy because you don’t fight like a karate black belt at all. You fight like you would instinctively, tackling, punching, kicking, using other objects, etc. Most importantly about this game is the graffiti; the graffiti looks very realistic and you are able to use many styles. Another thing about the game is that the further into the game you go, the more skilled your character will become with his graffiti. After a while of playing the game you will start to appreciate graffiti more as an art form than an act of vandalism. If you are interested at all in graffiti, revolution and fighting, you should give this game a try. This game is like marmite; you’ll either love it or hate it.
