Marc Eckos Getting Up
PC | 440.6Mb | ENG
When a famed graffiti artist like Dream stepped out of his house to go tagging back in 1983, the idea was to stay unseen. The only face of fame for a graf artist in those days was the images they left blazing on cement walls across the cities. As Dream crept into the Oakland train yards night after night, hood pulled low over his face to help obscure his identity, I'm sure he had no idea that one day there'd be a videogame based on his highly controversial art. Nevertheless, here we are in 2006 and we have a videogame by Atari that mimics the lifestyle of the urban graf artist. This isn't Jet Set Radio, but a tribute to one of the four legs of hip-hop -- the urban art of graffiti. This is Marc Ecko's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure, a game with great elements, but weak execution.
