GamesRadar writes: "The invite to go and see the new 50 Cent game, Blood on the Sand, was greeted with a mix of disinterest and disdain in the GamesRadar office. The first Fiddy game - Bulletproof - was pretty terrible, amounting to little more than an exercise in cynically shallow fan service. However, 10 minutes into being shown 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand by developer Swordfish Studios (who thankfully had nothing to do with the previous game) we got the strangest feeling that this self-proclaimed 'long awaited' sequel might actually be, well, a pretty decent arcade shooter.
While the storyline set-up is beyond the realms of stupid, we can't help but admire it for being so utterly preposterous. An abridged version of the plot goes something like this: 50 Cent and the G Unit play a sell out gig in some fictional war torn country. They get stiffed for the money. They grab their pieces and go big time Rambo. It's a crudely fashioned excuse for 50 Cent's predicament, but this is never going to be a game played for its sparkling narrative anyway."
