  1. The core gameplay isn't balanced or rewarding enough to warrant a purchase, but it will more than suffice for a weekend of mindless action.
  2. More style than substance. This package is little more than a collection of his tunes, a reprisal of the movie and some generic gaming fodder that we've all seen and played in other games such as "Max Payne," "Dead To Rights," "True Crime" - that do it much better.

    The core gameplay here is nothing that hasn't been seen before and done better a million times.

    Basic combat just isn't very fun. [Feb 2006, p.104]

    A bland-looking, sub-par action game with a wide variety of problems. The bonus materials are otherwise good, but the censored music videos make little sense. [Jan 2006]

    Fiddy moves so slowly that you want to reach into the TV to pull up his pants so he can break into a run once in a while. [Feb 2006, p.80]

    The actual gameplay mechanics blow. The's game's targeting and camera system is about as skittish as the Howells' from Gilligan's Island would be at the Vibe Awards.

I know 50 cents flow is about all this stuff because he's a rapper , and all of that, but this is one of the worst games in the history. Idiotic story and crappy graphics makes the 50 reputation fall flat. Do not buy it even if it has good music. buy the sequel Full Review »
