Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (5 ):
Kids say (9 ):

If you don't mind (or even enjoy) this kind of violent game, and can get past the silly premise, you'll find 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand a better game than its predecessor thanks to tight controls, vehicle-based levels (including a helicopter ride), optional co-op multiplayer, upgradeable weapons, and more than 40 hip-hop tracks (18 of which are exclusive, plus the disc also has nine classic music videos). Mature "Fiddy" fans with a yen for this kind of gun play will find this game a good all-around pick.
