For a budget shooter, I thought this game was pretty fun and another easy 1000 points for the old gamer score. Hard difficulty isn't too bad, but can be a little frustrating at times. Highly recommended.

After 50 Cent's last game --- and, well, his terrible attempts at rap --- there were few games I had lower expectations for than Blood on the Sand.
I have been proven wrong.
This is one of the most surprisingly fun games on the 360. Think The Club, but with much larger levels. It's not a deep game and the story is absurdly silly, but this game is already a front-runner for "surprisingly good game of the year". I guess it can be described as a more light-hearted and quicker-paced version of Gears of War.
Controls are easy and the camera is actually pretty good. The levels are broken up enough so that when you complete a difficult portion of the game, you are soon at a checkpoint, so while you will die on the higher difficulty levels fairly frequently, you will not have to backtrack over lengthy stretches of game, so it's not a major headache.
The music is, of course, G-Unit, so if you like it, it will be good. I am not fond of it, so it doesn't really do much for me.
Co-op play is actually pretty solid. It definitely makes the game much easier if you play with a friend...though the AI co-op partner is more than competent. It's not like some games where the co-op partner is amazing and can do most of the work for you, nor is it the type of AI where you have to baby-sit them every single step of the way.
There is nothing to make me say this game is not worth playing. It truly is a top-notch title, much to my surprise. You will not be bored by it. This game is very worth your time and it is very worth a rental.

So i am not a 50 cent fan at all.. Wutang clan for life! This game was so much fun i could not put it down.. The gameplay is non stop action simular to army of 2... Basically if you like non stop action then rent this mug... the cut scenes are terrible though haha and so is 50 cents voice acting.
