Gamespot: 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand Review

It should come as no surprise to anyone that they made another 50 Cent game. Despite its chilly critical reception, 2005's 50 Cent: Bulletproof sold remarkably well. What is likely to surprise many people is that the new game, 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand, is actually quite good. The fast-paced gameplay, tight controls, and arcade-style scoring system form a solid base for the simplistic yet fun action. Layered on top of this foundation is a heaping helping of 50 Cent and G-Unit flavor; vulgar dialogue, ridiculous one-liners, and a whole lot of licensed music give Blood on the Sand the bravado it needs to stay entertaining when the action begins to wear thin. Neither the action nor the attitude are particularly inspired, but together they are enough to make this an enjoyable ride.

The Good:
* Brash, cocky attitude
* Fast-paced action
* Engaging scoring system
* Great soundtrack of 50 Cent and G-Unit songs

The Bad:
* Action becomes repetitive
* Levels blur together
* Cover mechanic is too sticky
* Very cluttered HUD
