  1. 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.
  2. Getting Up is like a breath of fresh air, never before seen in the games industry and implemented to a degree that should make it a must in any gamer's collection.
  3. Getting up will take a few days to complete but once your job is done it's time to move on. While I highly recommend playing this game, I also highly recommend renting it as you're not likely to want to paint over old territory.
  4. Luckily, the smooth controls guarantee that all you'll have to worry about is dribbling paint and bumbling cops.

    This game has everything you look for. It has elements of stealth as you sneak around guards and quietly bomb a spot. It has celebrities. P.Diddy does voices, Britney Murphy does them too. And not to mention the various Graffiti legends thats are included. Is that wasnt enough, the graffiti that you'd put up yourself looks great. You put them up through use of aerosol, markers, pens, paint rollers, wheat paste, stickers, and stencils. This games makes graffiti look fun. The soundtrack to this is good too. Full Review »
