If there's one lesson to take away from this trailer for 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand, it's that you shouldn't steal a fancied-up skull from 50 Cent. He'll come after you, G-Unit in tow.

This extended look at 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand emphasizes the game's cover system, but thankfully, Swordfish designer Tim Austin closes by explaining: "We didn't really want a game where you're spending all your time hiding behind cover... so there's a lot of point rewards for getting out and getting in the faces of your enemy."

That's what I'm talking about. If I'm playing a 50 Cent game, I don't want to run around daintily dodging bullets and hiding behind potted plants. Cover is for punks. Read more »

50 Cent Story Trailer: And His Henchwoman, Layla

I love that there is a story-centric trailer for 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand. It's like producing a level design trailer for a text adventure.
