  • Summary: You can play as 50 Cent as he blasts his way through the streets of New York in 50 Cent: Bulletproof. Your path will cross those of drug and weapons dealers, informants, and a myriad of other shady characters as you and the G-Unit take on some of the largest crime families in New York. The game features many acrobatic moves for chasing enemies, dodging their attacks, and taking them out. The story was written by Terry Winter, the executive producer of The Sopranos. 50 Cent also contributes unique content to the game in the form of music tracks, freestyles, and in-game dialogue.

  1. There's enough killing to satiate even the sickest soul and the baddest gangster, and there's hours' worth of high quality music to listen to while you do it.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 50
    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.
  5. This third-person action game might sound like a great idea if you're a fan of 50, Yayo, Buck, and Banks, but with its poor gameplay and worse attention to the G-Unit license, Bulletproof disappoints on all fronts.
  6. 50 Cent: Bulletproof just isn't any damn fun. Due to laggy controls and a horrible targeting system, death is imminent almost any time you go against an enemy, especially some of the bosses that have far better weapons and cheaper tactics than you.
  7. 20
    At the end of the day, what you'll find in the box is a bunch of nice extras that are packaged with a horrible batch of code that barely qualifies as a game.

    I feel this game lacks smooth movment throughout the game,,, seeme that there are some glitches in in the game,,,possible patches soon to come in the near future, which would help. Also hate the blue colour on the cross hairs for the enemy,,,hard to make a clear choice to make a true shot,,and that the gun site is too glitchy, very frustrating when trying to kill in quick responce when there are several enemies all over you.

    i really think that this game focus's to much on 50's music more then the game play, i think that the graphics for this day n age r 1 of the worst i have seen, as well as the options of using the camera mode r fairly poor aswell i think that the game should have been worked on a little longer.

    What in the world is this thing? is like saying that Michael Jackson goes to boxing. 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 Expand
