Although the competition is stiff, we all might get a very pleasant surprise upon playing 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand. This new trailer shows a cover mechanic similar to that of Gears of War, and if it can even approach the quality of Epic's masterpiece, we'll be happy. They can't rely only on fans of the rapper for this title to become a hit; they're gonna need a fully functional and entertaining gameplay mechanic. The good news is that everything we've seen and heard about Blood on the Sand is very promising, and it could turn out to be a kick-ass romp. Vin Diesel can make an awesome game, so why can't 50 Cent?
