All in all there's plenty in 50 Cent: Bulletproof to keep fans of Fiddy and the rap game happy for many hours. There's enough killing to satiate even the sickest soul and the baddest gangster, and there's hours' worth of high quality music to listen to while you do it. There are music videos, interviews and a couple of short documentaries to watch between gun battles, and the storyline (written by The Sopranos' Terry Winter) is compelling enough to keep you playing. The levels look good enough to eat and the animations are as smooth as Carmen Electra's thigh. The best thing though is the atmosphere it creates; this game oozes hip hop grime and if that's your bag then you'll simply love this game.

Interestingly Modern Combat doesn't feel like a 'keep your fxxkin head down!' type soldier sim, instead it's much closer to the less constricted deathmatch games we're all-too familiar with. (Lots of running, some jumping.) The pace is pretty fast, and although you can crawl or crouch, you're generally going to be legging it between bits of cover and squeezing out as many bullets as you can before death. The weapons too feel simple and solid. Better still, the ragdoll deaths are a delight, especially when someone gets shot up by two or three people at the same time. Bodies go flying, dead limbs whirling, it's beautiful in a hideously morbid way.

Is 50 Cent: Bulletproof the sell-out so many gamers may be willing to write it off as? Not entirely. Yes, this game does “borrow” most of its gameplay elements from other titles, but its gang theme with 50 and his cast of hooligans is all its own. The core gameplay isn’t balanced or rewarding enough to warrant a purchase, but it will more than suffice for a weekend of mindless action. 50 fans, or rap fans in general, may warrant the coin needed to take this one home though, as the audio unlockables are extensive, and the overall theme is geared for that set.

50 Cent: Bulletproof is more style than substance. This package is little more than a collection of his tunes, a reprisal of the movie and some generic gaming fodder that we've all seen and played in other games such as Max Payne, Dead To Rights, True Crime - that do it much better. This game is made for serious fans of the half-dollar man, and as such is not likely to garner any new ones.

These days, the hot thing for artists of all sorts seems to be undertaking a hands-on role in their own videogame. Tony Hawk was probably the first person to nail this, with the likes of Vin Diesel coming through with the excellent Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay in recent years. 50 Cent is the latest to undertake this sort of project with an alternate take on his life with 50 Cent: Bulletproof.

Dass sich mit Videospielen eine Menge Geld verdienen lässt, dürfte mittlerweile hinlänglich bekannt sein. Nachdem Curtis „50 Cent“ Jackson im letzten Jahr bereits in seiner pathetischen Biografie „Get Rich or Die Tryin´“ im Kino zu bewundern war, können wir im entsprechenden Spiel nun virtuell mit ihm und seiner „G-Unit“ die Straßen von New York unsicher machen. Ob dieser Exkurs in die Welt der Videospiele ähnlich gewinnbringend sein wird, wie die hauseigene Turnschuhkollektion und Mineralwasser-sorte, sei dahingestellt. Wieviel Spaß der Titel letztendlich jedoch macht, erfahren Sie im Gamers.at Test.

Bulletproof could've been a lot worse for a game based on a rap star, but it could be much better as it borrows too heavily from other third-person action games without adding anything new to the genre. At best, it's a weekend rental for devoted 50 Cent fans.

However, if you think of this as a soundtrack and video collection with a bonus game attached to it, it's not bad buy for fans. There are a ton of great tracks by all the members of G-Unit and over a dozen music videos. It's really impressive. Whether you can stand playing the game long enough to unlock them all, well, that's another question altogether.

We zijn het ondertussen al gewend dat spellen die gebaseerd zijn op een bekende film dan wel persoon jammer genoeg vaak weinig om zich hebben. Ook hier is 50 Cent: Bulletproof een jammerlijk voorbeeld van. Het is zeker geen topper geworden die je avonden lang zal bezighouden. Daarvoor zijn er teveel aspecten aan het spel die teleurstellen. Het spel speelt niet eenvoudig en de vele extra’s konden beter worden uitgewerkt, want uiteindelijk gebruik je ze toch niet. Ben je echter een fan van de man dan is de aanschaf van dit spel misschien wel de moeite waard. Al doe je het enkel al voor de tientallen soundtracks die de game rijk zijn. Ben je geen fan dan zou ik je nieuwjaarscenten toch elders aan spenderen.

Sluggish gunplay coupled with level designs that are assuredly in the running for the most generic of this generation make you want to sell this game to a friend for 50 cents within minutes of picking up the controller.

Love him or hate him, 50 Cent is like a force of nature these days. With music from 50 and his cohorts consistently burning up the pop charts, it seemed like it was only a matter of time before the G-Unit empire expanded beyond music and clothing and into other forms of media. 50 Cent's movie is in theaters, and now he's got a game to call his own, 50 Cent: Bulletproof. This third-person action game might sound like a great idea if you're a fan of 50, Yayo, Buck, and Banks, but with its poor gameplay and worse attention to the G-Unit license, Bulletproof disappoints on all fronts.

Au final, ce " 50 Cent Bulletproof " se révèle être un jeu plutôt fade, qui pêche avant tout par son manque de profondeur. Un scénario au ras des pâquerettes, un gameplay qui ne nous propose pas grand-chose d'intéressant à nous mettre sous la dent, une réalisation graphique assez foireuse : il n'en faut pas plus pour nous faire passer notre chemin. Seuls les fans invétérés du gros musclé tenteront l'expérience, ne serait-ce que pour le plaisir de débloquer les clips qui y sont présents. Un titre à éviter…

Si j'osais, je vous dirais que 50 Cent Bulletproof ne vaut pas un kopeck. Répétitif malgré un mode Histoire à la durée de vie faiblarde, un gameplay d'une lourdeur affligeante, une complaisance dans l'excès de violence, autant dire que les développeurs n'ont pas fait dans la dentelle en s'attardant davantage sur la devanture du magasin que sur ce qu'on trouve à l'intérieur. Pour la peine, ça me donnerait presque envie d'écouter en boucle le dernier Maxi-CD d'André Rieu...

Your enemies, on the other hand, sense your presence from 100 yards away and run in erratic patterns as they spray bullets, a frustration compounded by sloppy aiming controls. Bulletproof is a blur of lazy design, pandering gore, and shame-less product placement.

Must be great to be an artist for whom cashing in is just part of the M.O. Take 50 Cent, who's already followed up a couple platinum records with clothes, licensed bling, and a lousy movie. Now a truly bad game follows in the movie's footsteps. With a few improvements, Bulletproof would be no-frills action, but as released by Vivendi it's just poor.
