Xbox 360 PS3

After last week's first images, here are two new (tiny) screenshots of 50 Cent II: Blood in the Sand. The story may seem nothing short of pathetic, if the gameplay is as polished as the graphics, it could provide some decent fun.

2 tiny images

Love how 50cent raises his lip in order to look like a major badass. The first game based on 50 cent sounded like the most retarded thing to do to me, but off course it wasn't the most retarded. Only a crappy sequel could top it, and here it is.

Just because you hate the music, don't hate the game. Chances are, it will be pretty poor, but oh well, if you dont want to buy it, or have anything useful to say about it, shut up =/ Alot of people who don't read Gamersyde will buy this because it appeals to them, hence why they make it. Simple

Why do we have to tone down the hate on cash-in games that do little to advance games at all?

It's fine if some people somewhere want this game or like it, but that's no reason for someone else that doesn't like it to self-censor or be censored.

well, it's already been said, and we've had a few complaints about the "racism".

If its about the gameplay in general (which I'm sure most of you have had no experience with) then have at it.

That's certainly understandable about the racism, but of course criticizing the game shouldn't be manipulated into racism.

There was a previous 50 cent game, and we can talk in generalities. I believe any criticism should be backed up with at least a fleshed out opinion. Just saying 'it sux' should never be acceptable.

Anyways, I don't have a real strong opinion about this one.

I'm baffled by the graphics. I mean, really...this game is like the WORST scenario ever. Why did they make a game about some rapper/hip-hop guy to begin with? Actually, what i meant to say was, why the feck make a game based on a recording artist at all? It would be just as bad no matter who it was. Why does it looks this good?

I never played the first one, but it must have been pretty sucky since nobody ever gave a crap about it, and i just can't see this as appealing at all. It looks like some army crap, so why is 50 cent there with his stupid cap instead of a soldier?

Clearly not for me...ugh.

visually its nice, as was the first tbh. but i cant imagine it playing well (since the first was far from it), its crazy the first game was bought by more then a million chumps. i wonder if fiddy still has a million follows. i doubt it. as for the music, i hate it. but then what relevance does that have to the game...non.

And this is why people are giving this game shit. It will more than likely be poor as you said, but it will still sell well because ignorant casual gamers will be more than happy to throw their money at something with 50's name attached to it.

So people can talk trash about other games they haven't played, but for some reason, this cash-grab is supposed to be free from criticism?

Well, if the game is filled with his music, his mannerisms, his words, and that thug life stuff that I simply don't like, then that's a lot of stuff about the game that I won't like. The gameplay may end up being good, but if I have a lack of interest...or rather, a complete disdain for the source "material," then that is pretty darn relevant.

I didn't say you did.

I just don't see much mod vocalization when people say that they think other games will be garbage and explain why. Seems odd that this one is an exception...

...or not considering the race card was played.

This game isn't an exception.

my warning was towards others that feel they can get away wiith it.

There's one comment in particular that pissed me off last session.

Was the first game really that bad? (raise your hand if you've played it.)

I don't listen to 50Cents music, but I just think that the "hip hop dude in middle eastern" plot is so hilarious that it's good for a rental. I'm sure.

Really? I somehow doubt that, my guess would be few people who actually like 50 cent.
If 50 even has any real fans that is, he has been booed out at every music festival he has been playing at, kinda like this one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eL1dvdGoOvk

it features a good license (from a marketing POV) but i don't have high expectations for this game but let's not write it off before it sees the light of day. i'm pretty confident that the kids will like it anyway.

lol please, 50 Cent goes to a rock concert, of course he was going to get booed off.

Its like Elton John playing at a Rap Concert. It would have the same result. he didn't do it to entertain the Reading Fans, he did it for the money. He still got paid and he didn't lose any of his fans. Sounds like a result to me.

As for the game. It looks decent enough from the pictures. Hopefully the co-op play will be nice. Many games have been neglecting decent co-op gaming modes lately with the exception of Rainbow. I'd like to see a return of more split screen gaming fun.
