50 Cent Bulletproof review

50 Cent takes a shot at the video game world, and finds it a little harder than spitting rhymes.

For

  • Lots of ways to make death
  • 50 Cent bustin' caps in suckas
  • Cursing and gore galore

Against

  • Nothing in this game plays very well
  • Takes a lot to unlock music and videos
  • Poorly laid out missions

Conventional wisdom says that first you crawl before you walk. 50 Cent Bulletproof shoots this theory in the face, and decides to try to outrun a freight train before doing either. As you can imagine, it ends up falling a little flat. When working to get 50 Cent, his crew, Dre and Em, and 50's music and his videos into the game, the developers forgot one minor detail: the game.

Once upon a time, in a hood far, far away from reality, 50 Cent and the rest of G-Unit were taking care of business the only way they know how: by spitting lots of rhymes and even more bullets. Like the real-life Curtis Jackson, 50 takes nine in the back, and goes after the one who did it. Bulletproof touts a script by the writer of 50's movie, Get Rich or Die Tryin', but honestly the story rarely shows its head. To make matters worse, it's hard to find motivation from mission to mission, or even figure out what you have to do next.

DescriptionThe game can barely do run-and-gun shooting right... Enemies are dead-eyed snipers with ninja speed. You, on the other hand, have no lock-on targeting and moves like you just hit the pipe.
