Mindless, mindless, mindless.,
This review is from: 50 Cent: Bulletproof (PS2) (Video Game)
I think this is perfect justification for my views that 50 Cent should not be allowed to punlish records.
The fact that he's prepared to sell more of his already mostly-possessed soul to the games industry in a feeble attempt to jump on the GTA bandwagon really shows this guy has no dignity.
The fact that the games industry feels the need to front their games with rap stars who would never in a million years be put in the situations shown in the game really shows they've lost the plot.
What could potentially have been saved as an average game, was ruined by the laughable description, "Follow 50 as he blasts his way to the truth." As to why 50 feels the need to go to such lengths to find the said "truth"... well, thats unclear. Is he a cop? A vigilante? Or just a rapper looking for money?
And are we realistically expected to believe that because he's famous, has large muscles and a scary smile that he can fight off a dozen enemies with his bare fists? Or that he can take bullets to the chest, but still keep rappin' on?
As if this wasn't ridiculous enough, everytime you 'die' on the game, you're met with the reassuring image of the man himself, posing topless against a dark background, seemingly depicted as some kind of messiah for the 'hood'.
The morally pleasing anti-drugs theme also seems only to be a cover for a game where you can do as you please on the streets of mainland USA. And 'do as you please' invariably means beating up innocent civilians and taking their wallets. Oh, and selling them drugs if they're still interested. Yeah, good stuff.
Stick to rappin', fifty.
