Along your quest, uncover the mayor's deep, dark secret and use your fighting talents and high-wire graffiti to expose the city's leader as a corrupt tyrant. As you struggle to save a neighborhood from an oppressive government, one question stands out: What if graffiti could change the world?

You have to "Get IN, Get UP and Get OUT".
Combat: master a unique fighting technique and use improvised weapons
Graffiti: create tags in pressure situations, using multiple skills and styles
Intuition: follow your sixth sense to find the best spots to tag
Sneak mode: infiltrate areas and avoid capture as you creep silently through the city
Navigation: utilize a unique guidance system to "get up" and tag
I will say a few things about this old little masterpiece. As a fan of graffiti, this game made me absolutely adore it. Cool thing is, you actually FEEL like spraying & doing graffiti. You don't just click and BOOM, there it is. It's all really well made about this part. The whole game isn't just that though, there's more than meets the eye! There is plenty of action throughout the missions (contains fighting, climbing/parkour), challenging parts here & there, a quite good story, unlockables, and other stuff. Now, graphics are fine (released in 2006), but this is not always the strongest point to look for. The soundtrack is guaranteed to satisfy you for such a game. The fighting moves feel a bit repetitive at times, but it's okay (besides, if the game has something negative, that would be the only thing I might say) because it doesn't have to contain a list of moves! The story is kind of lengthy, the missions have replayability because also there are unlockables/secrets that need to be collected + the stages are not boring and tagging is highly enjoyable for every stage (there some stages that you tag unique graffiti) Either you enjoy graffiti, either you want to enjoy a great story/action, it's the real deal. It's a masterpiece & no other game is like this one. Just play and think about it. Have you experienced a similar game like Marc Ecko's Getting Up? I don't think so! Contents Under Pressure... 5 stars, hands down. How could you not like such a game?
This is game based around parkour, movement and tagging. The controls work well and there are plenty of fun environments to explore. The game's premise is certainly unique. On the downside, its pretty old and looks dated. The game gets repetitive at times as well.
