50 Cent: Bulletproof G-Unit Edition hands-on

In all, the multiplayer game features 16 different characters, five different levels and five different modes. The latter include Smash and Grab, a straight-up deathmatch and Slaughter the Pig, where one player tries to hold onto a flag for as long as possible while the other three try to gun him down and take it. There's also Breaking and Entering, where one team protects a handful of cars while the other tries to smash them.

For our money, though, the best match type is King of Bling. It's a basic deathmatch, but when your opponents go down, they have to mash a button to get back up. In the meantime, you can kick them repeatedly to earn money and jewelry. Whoever has the most bling when the match ends, wins.

Like the console version, G-Unit Edition lets you unlock a bunch of 50 Cent videos, as well as music tracks for use in the game. It'll also enable you to buy Fiddy a whole new wardrobe of G-Unit-themed clothes, which can then be used in multiplayer matches.

While it's hardly the best thing we've ever seen, 50 Cent: Bulletproof G-Unit Edition is shaping up to be much better than we expected. Fun, simple and packed with gunplay and profanity, this should give Fiddy's fans something to look forward to as September draws near.
