Excerpt: Just when you think you have seen it all, a video game with rapper 50 Cent as the main character comes along. On top of that, not only does Fiddy already have one game under his belt with the 2005 release of ‘50 Cent: Bulletproof’, but now he is officially a video game franchise with the recent arrival of ‘50 Cent: Blood on the Sand’ for the Xbox 360 and PS3.
Summary: The game is very fun for that arcade feel and runs about 9 levels on three different difficulty levels; all are which are selectable on your very first run. I started out on the hardest difficulty and it took my about maybe 3 days to beat it….twice. I’m currently going through my second play through to find all the posters, achievements, and targets.
Pros: Soundtrack, cast members, arcade fun.
Cons: No competitive multiplayer, replay value, repetitiveness.
Rapper's game is violent, nonsensical, potentially offensive

Summary: Parents need to know that this video game is for mature players only. While not pushing the envelope, it has violence, language, excessive language, and suggestive themes. Gamers can slow down the kills for a dramatic effect and are rewarded for savvy kills. Some of these kills result from hand-to-hand violence and melee (knife) kills. The game takes you to strip clubs, and makes references to heroin and cocaine.
Excerpt: Wuddup, homie? 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand has hit consoles in a big way,yo. You know my boy FItty is all up in da Middle East instead of in da club…alright. That’s enough. I can’t keep that going any longer or my spell checker will implode.
