The dank and dark underbelly of the city is presented well. Everything from the dirty and graffiti-covered walls to litter-covered floors comes off nicely, but ultimately isn't anything impressive. Getting Up's character models are a bit hit-and-miss. Though your character, Trane, looks nice and everything from his paint-marked "Still Free" hoodie to his blue jeans is detailed, other characters (especially the enemy cleaners) quickly become cookie-cutter and very generic looking.
The game's background music and sound effects are fairly bland and are quickly forgotten once the console is turned off, but the voice acting, on the other hand, is superb. Vocal talents like Talib Kweli (playing Trane), Andy Dick (Road Trip), Brittany Murphy (8-Mile) and Adam West are just a few of the name's that The Collective gathered for this title, and the characters' interactions with each other are anything but phoned-in.
