Blood on the sands was pretty tight. After playing 50 Cent's first game I was a little reluctant to rent this one. If you remember the first one came out with a awesome game trailer that made you want to go out and buy the game. After getting the game you felt like you was taken advantage of because the game and the game trailer wasn't the same. But "Blood of the Sand" is truly a make up for the first one. Its more on the adult level of course, because of the language. Other than that, its a game that you will find that its hard to pull away from.
I will not give yall my fav parts because it will take the fun out the game and then you can almost predict the end of the game.
Pros: A lot of action throughout the game. You can relate some of the weapons to Navy Seals. The Rocket Launchers just added a lot of fun to the game.
The graphics are pretty good, but thats about it. If you like his music, the soundtracks are great, but thank God you can turn the music off, because it got annoying after the first 30 minutes.
I had to play the game with the sound off, because every other word was an F-bomb, and I have small children around. I dont understand why game designers feel they have to include vulgar dialogue in a game, but they should at least include an option that turns it off.
The game had a lot of glitches too, especially the ability to shoot enemies right through the cover you are hiding behind. You can buy a lot of weapons, but you can only carry 4 at a time, and you cant access the others until you get to a "Pay phone". You also can only carry certain combinations of weapons, so many times, you are unable to carry the weapons that you like the most.
Two other things that are rediculous, is that there are hidden posters and shootable targets placed in the landscape. You have to collect the posters and shoot the targets for extra money, which was nothing but a time waster, and I never was able to find them all, especially the targets.
