Sierra Spring Break: 50 Cent II

Sierra Spring Break: 50 Cent II

Sierra Spring Break still, and now it's time to talk about 50 Cent II: Blood in the Sand. There a galery of images of course, but I can also share my first impressions with you since I attended a gameplay presentation of the game. Besides the 50 Cent character that you're free to like or hate, I was quite impressed by the gameplay, a cool mix of Gears of War's hide'n pop action style and The Club totally arcade-ish scoring system. It looked really solid and surprising. never judge a game on its cover !
Update: Added the trailer, so ridiculous and over the top it's awesome.

gotta say, visually it looks good. the story and the fact its 50 cent however make the game shit.

I don't care if its a great game. I'm not buying into that kind of shit. I refuse to support that stupid idiot. Incidently, who is the dev?

Visuals are ok.

But 50 Cent is a douchebag.

:)

He can try to mess with Nico Belic ^^

They went to a non-specific Middle Eastern country to play a sold out concert. Everything went well until the promoter tried to get away without paying G-Unit. After a brief confrontation he agrees to give them a diamond encrusted skull and everyone leave happy. That is, until G-Unit is ambushed on their way out of the country, and their crystal skull is stolen.

To quote a user on NeoGAF--"Are you a bad enough dude to help 50 get his crystal skull back?"

The premise is fucking awesome.

Harrison Ford did it.

"It looked really solid and surprising. never judge a game by its rapper!"

Fixed the joke there for you. ;) (Although it works better being spoken than written.)

lmao that was pretty damn cool trailer
Commented on 2008-04-30 11:57:11
Fiddy still got it.

Why do devs like to kill Arabs?!!

Plus in all game i have seen, they show you that we live in desert, I think they dont know anything about a place called Dubai (google it)

Anyway, Its 50 cent game (who i dont like), I only liked his first song (In da club)

But graphically its really good which i doubt its in game footage!
Commented on 2008-04-30 13:09:50
HAHAHAHAH, what the hell was that rubbish...

What has 50 done apart from being shot 9 times... I mean, does that really make him tough...? Lucky perhaps, but this is a bit of an extension....the premise is hilarious. Taking out arabs in the middle east as well...the fug?

by Indiana Jones?

Why is that skull appearing to be a mirror image of the skull by Damien Hirst?
Commented on 2008-04-30 15:26:22
Every copy of this game should come with a tracking device so I can find and ***** slap anyone who throws away $60 for this game. Damn you "Fiddy."
Commented on 2008-04-30 15:28:44
This will definitely win the "Worst Game of 2008" award.
Commented on 2008-04-30 15:40:35
Damn he's just so cool, 50 cent is just such a cool guy. Really think he's cool. Have I mentioned before how cool I think 50 cent is?

Seriously, he's really cool.
Commented on 2008-04-30 16:01:07
Hahaha oh my god I can't stop laughing
Commented on 2008-04-30 16:36:30
wow compared to this even chuck norris is a pussy :rolleyes:

worst game 2008 confirmed
Commented on 2008-04-30 16:39:49
It may be alright as long as he doesn't speak and none of his music is in it. And he gets shot in the first scene and it turns out you dont actually play as him but as the cast of wu tang. And the 50 cent title is just a sick joke.

One can only hope.
Commented on 2008-04-30 18:34:38
Was that CGI? Then it's the most realistic looking CGI I have ever seen. Not that I mean that the action in it was realistic.
But 50 cent is such an idiot. I think he's as stupid as George Bush.
And I will lay my vengeance upon thee who will buy this game!

  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Phaethon360: actually i wasn't. There is a mode other then the "you have been invaded" cat and mouse mode, where you JUST follow someone. (2 Hours ago)
  • Phaethon360
    Phaethon360 @digi_matrix: I agree. I like using the environment and hacking other players. Also what Korn was trying to say is "cat & mouse" gameplay. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @digi_matrix: debatable. One mode looks fun. The other look "different" but ultimately boring. I hear there is a mode where you litterally just follow another play. Exciting stuff. (3 Hours ago)
