Excerpt: There have been numerous game concepts over the years that have left us scratching our heads, with none guiltier than the dismal 50 Cent: Bulletproof back in 2005. The game revolved around the rap superstar and his posse G-Unit, and it was universally panned by critics and consumers alike. After the poor performance, Fiddy returns for an encore in Blood on the Sand. Does this run-and-gun shooter drop it like it's hot, or is it just another buster?
Excerpt: Once in a while, it’s nice to play a game that you have no prior knowledge of, with no preset expectations for the experience to come, and are open to the idea that that experience may just happen to be quite good. 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand is such a game, and what at first seems like a blatant Gears of War rip-off (complete with cover mechanics and an off-set third-person camera, only set in a war-torn modern-day city featuring real world weapons), soon comes into its...
Summary: " 50 Cent: Blood On The Sand " is big dumb, and a lot of fun. It doesn’t care that it’s ripped off 'Gears of War' and 'The Club' and mashed them together.

Excerpt: Name: 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand Genre: Third-Person Shooter, Action Platform: Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 (Reviewed on PlayStation 3 Check out the Video Review. 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand is a good game. Please, don’t stop reading. Over the past few months, gamers have lied to themselves and each other, trying to make up excuses for not enjoying the trailers for 50’s newest foray into gaming.
Excerpt: When you think of 50 Cent you probably have quite a few things running through your mind, but we highly doubt you picture him as a shotgun carrying, grenade belt wearing action hero. This is the Fiddy you play in THQ and Swordfish's 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand, a quite ridiculous third-person shooter that takes inspiration from Gears of War and SEGA's run and gun gem The Club, creating something of an unexpected pleasure in the process.
Conclusion: Blood on the Sand is possibly one of the shallowest experiences we’ve come across in a long time. While the control system is tight and the monotonous gameplay somehow manages to draw you in and ultimately provides an entertaining blast, there’s no escaping the fact that the game is decidedly average drivel when all is said and done.
