    Has the makings of an excellent third person shooter but it's way too short and the only challenge stems from trying to get a better high score. Probably great, lightweight, silly fun on co-op with a good buddy after a few beers, but as a single player experience, most average.

    50 cent Blood on the sand is the second game in the 50 Cent video game series excluding 50 cent bulletproof: G unit edition). The game plays like any other 3rd person shooter on the market, and even has it's own form of pullet time called Gangsta Fire." While the story is different from other shooters it gets very stale after a while. While the first mission is fun the rest is just rinse50 cent Blood on the sand is the second game in the 50 Cent video game series excluding 50 cent bulletproof: G unit edition).

You fight your way to a room, and in there waits a boss, who WILL jump in to a helicopter and now you have to fight a helicopter.
    The games is short in presentation, gameplay, and the length of the game itself. While it doesn't deserve to be bought, a rental wouldn't hurt. After all you get to enjoy hearing his music, over, and over, and over, and over, and over again.

    50 Cent Blood on the Sand
    The dumbest game ive ever played.
    In Blood on the Sand you play as 50 Cent.. And no.. I don’t mean 50 cent playing a character.. You literally play as 50 cent after his last concert on tour with g unit… You get off stage to collect some owed money and youre paid with a skull embedded with diamonds.. Youre ambushed and this skull is taken from you and you

    The dumbest game ive ever played.
    In Blood on the Sand you play as 50 Cent..
    And no.. I don’t mean 50 cent playing a character..
    You literally play as 50 cent after his last concert on tour with g unit…
    You get off stage to collect some owed money and youre paid with a skull embedded with diamonds..
    Youre ambushed and this skull is taken from you and you spend the rest of the game trying to get it back..
    And you do this with the sidekick of your choice.. I chose Lloyd banks.. cause hes Lloyd banks.. of course im going to choose him…
    Your partner is controlled by ai as the online co op feature no longer works…
    This is a super linear 3rd person shooter…
    But its insanely boring….
    This game is from 2009 and feels very much from that time being just a bunch of ugly greys and browns throughout…
    The entire 3 hr and 40 min long campaign looks and feels the same leading it to get boring quickly though initially its quite the joy taunting your enemies as you kill them, and blasting through levels listening to actual music by 50 cent…
    But the gameplay is very unengaging..
    You can take cover.. shoot enemies… run up to them to intiate a counter kill quick time event..collect cash.. get collectables to rack up your points in a level, and throw out some sick fire with your gangsta fire meter that slows down time allowing you to pull off mad sick head shots…
    The only thing that could make this game more ridiculous is every enemy charcter having ja rules face and young buck crying on the other line every time you stop at a pyphone to spend your collected cash on new weapons, taunts, and counterkills…
    I laughed a handful of times because of how ridiculous this game and its concept is…
    50 Cent speaks to everyone like a rapper.. and not a hero…
    That was really the only redeemable quality this game has…
    Its massively repetitive…
    3 and half hours feels like 3 and a half years.
    I give 50 Cent Blood on the Sand
    a 5/10

    Stupid and bloody but a lot of fun! It´s a enjoyable ride not only for 50cent/hip hop fans! Shooting is solid, Graphics are not top notch but they hold up pretty well. Co-op with a friend is fun. Downside is the shortness of the game. Overall you should check it out if you could get it for a budget price!

    The co-op is fun, the action is intense and in fact the only negative things about this game are the camera, story, and pop in graphics. If you can get past all of those things underneath you might not find the ultimate 50-Cent experience but you will at the very least find a pretty good action arcade shooter.

    A near-perfect popcorn game. Its gunplay is solid and backed up by a plethora of neat ideas, its co-op is strong and there's an undercurrent of savvy humour that helps to negate the heavy posturing and more dubious elements of the paper thin plot.

    This is great mindless fun, with a huge head-nodding Fiddy soundtrack, highly competent visuals and a high score aesthetic that clicks enough to keep you playing.
