About 50 Cent: Bulletproof G Unit Edition
In 50 Cent: Bulletproof G Unit Edition, 50 gets caught in a web of corruption, double-crosses and shady deals that lead him on a bloody path through New York's underworld. Backed-up by his G Unit soldiers, the streets heat up as 50 Cent takes on the most dangerous crime families in the city. Players assume the role of 50 Cent in a fictitious story, where they will use an arsenal of tactics including counter kill moves, evasive rolls and human shields to stay alive while the bullets fly.
Penned by Emmy(R) award winner Terry Winter, 50 Cent: Bulletproof G Unit Edition stars an unprecedented line-up of the hottest recording artists in the music industry today, including 50 Cent and G Unit's Tony Yayo, Lloyd Banks and Young Buck, as well as other hip-hop superstars.
The game also includes tracks and remixes from 50 Cent, music from his multi-platinum albums Get Rich or Die Tryin' and The Massacre and over a dozen 50 Cent and G Unit music videos.
50 Cent: Bulletproof G Unit Edition was created in partnership with Interscope Records, Shady Records and Aftermath Records.
