    This game rocks back and forth between mildly enjoyable and an utterly embarrassing mess. The slow motion feature is useless, the cover mechanic is useless since you regenerate health almost instantly, the graphics range from fair to absurd, it's unbalanced, repetitive and dull. It's hard to get excited for the next battle when the previous battle was exactly the same. The sound This game rocks back and forth between mildly enjoyable and an utterly embarrassing mess. The slow motion feature is useless, the cover mechanic is useless since you regenerate health almost instantly, the graphics range from fair to absurd, it's unbalanced, repetitive and dull. It's hard to get excited for the next battle when the previous battle was exactly the same. The sound is atrocious (the gatling guns sound like quickly popping bubble wrap instead of fearsome weapons like in GRAW2). Overall, whatever enjoyment I got from the game's pretending to be "The Club" (which was a far better example of this kind of game) it was ultimately sucked away by feeling like the enemies guns were filled with spitballs instead of bullets and the downright embarrassing and utterly juvenile story.

    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.

    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

    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.
  2. It's just balls-out shooting from start to finish, with 50 Cent tunes to bop along to as you go. It's not too tough and not overly complicated. You just have fun with guns, and that's all there is to it.
  3. Light, silly and undemanding but also surprisingly fun, Blood On The Sand will never compete with the big boys of the shooting genre but it’ll keep you amused more than you may think. It’s worth a look.
