A Vastly Improved Sequel Best Played with a Friend
22 September 2009
Conclusion: Concept: A slightly ludicrous turn of events has 50 and the G-Unit shooting their way through the Mideast in search of a jeweled skull
Graphics: Puts the Unreal engine to good use. The character models and copious explosions look great

As soon as 50 Cent leaves his latest Middle Eastern concert he runs into a Hummer full of gun-toting, profanity-spouting video game clich?s.
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...

Excerpt: I never there would come a day when I sit down and write about a good 50 Cent game. Generally, hip-hop games have never turned out that great, with the exception of Def Jam, and Wu-Tang Clan: Shaolin Style.
