50 Cent: Blood on the Sand interview and 2 screens from IGN

Aaron Blean, Producer on 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand, is in a precarious and arguably unenviable position – defending a sequel for a game that was roundly accepted as being pretty lousy when it was released back in 2005. It was based on gangsta rapper 50 Cent and his crew, G-Unit and it shoehorned a whole lot of gang violence into a shooter frame, opening it up to mainstream gamers and controversy from the wider public in one slick motion. It got panned by critics, but ended up generating some serious sales.

Take a look at the screenshots, read Blean's thoughts on the past game (including the tactful admission that "it's not going to be anything like the first game") and you might just come away with your hardcore-gamer-cynicism curiously absent, replaced by surprise and cautious optimism.
