a third person shoot em' up linear adventure through the middle east.
Who's it for?
50 cent fans, g-unit fans, gamers who would like easy achievements and gamerscore. gamers who played 50 cent: bulletproof on the original xbox.
What's it like?
an addictive game that will have you feeling like a nervous wreck afterwards.
50 cent has been betrayed by a concert promoter and has made off with ten million dollars and a prized jeweled skull. what to do? go on a rampage throughout the middle east of course. and only 50 cent knows how, gangster baby! if the red hot chilli peppers made a video game, much like in their music video for californication, it would be similar to this but be a whole lot less violent than 50 cent: blood on the sand.
when battling middle eastern gangsters who look more like terrorists, you can choose to use the cover system during gun fights. you can also choose not to, and that actually does work effectively in killing enemies. the cover system in 50 cent: blood on the sand works well, but sometimes can leave you dead in those moments you need to scatter to avoid enemy fire. co-op is in this game and all of the game will have you partnered with a g-unit member of your selection to fight with and help. each boss has you firing rockets at a helicopter gunship.
50 cent looks like a chocolate gangster in this second outing for the famous rapper. how? because the detail on his body is so particular it makes him so. because your battling through locations in the middle east, expect middle eastern scenary you would expect such as desert, markets and temples.
g-unit tracks play throughout 50 cent: blood on the sand. the game has a music player which can be configured to play tracks you would like it to play. there is alot of coarse language in this game.
this game was my first experience of a third person linear shooter adventure on the xbox 360. on the day i received it and on that night, i played for nine hours straight, completing most of the game. that was my second or third gaming marathon with my xbox 360. optionally, you can do the game over a second time as a g-unit member to unlock another nine achievements which match with the nine missions in the game.
