'50 Cent: Bulletproof' (PSP/PS2/Xbox) Bosses - Screens

by Rainier on Nov. 2, 2005 @ 9:25 a.m. PST

In 50 Cent's video game, 50 gets caught in a web of corruption, double-crosses and shady deals that lead him on a bloody path through New York's drug underworld. Working with the unlikeliest of allies, the streets heat up as 50 Cent takes on the most dangerous crime families in the city, uncovering an international conspiracy with devastating implications. The streets are watching as 50 Cent blasts his way to the truth.

50 Cent: Bulletproof will feature an unprecedented lineup 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 Eminem and Dr. Dre, who will be making their interactive debuts as the characters "McVicar" and "Grizz."

50 Cent has been heavily involved in the game's creation and content, which features the star's voice, likeness and music. He collaborated on the game's mechanics and storyline with former Sopranos executive producer and Emmy award winner Terry Winter, who wrote the game's script and the screenplay for 50 Cent's forthcoming theatrical release, Get Rich or Die Tryin'.

50 Cent: Bulletproof will feature new songs from 50 Cent recorded exclusively for the game, music from Get Rich or Die Tryin', The Massacre and 50 Cent and G Unit music videos. In addition, the game will offer a sound studio mode in which gamers can mix and match new original freestyles by 50 Cent with new beats straight from the G Unit camp.

Over a half dozen different gangs and crime organizations will stop at nothing to take down 50 Cent and his G Unit soldiers in 50 Cent: Bulletproof. These factions have their own strengths and strategies and include Street Gangs, Triads, Bikers, the Mob and many more.

Gangs and Leaders

All groups of enemies fall into two general types: the smaller but faster gang members who find strength in numbers, and the significantly larger and tougher leaders who require a lot more damage to take down.


Bosses are the masterminds and last defense of every gang and crime organization, and the following are just a few that 50 encounters throughout the game:

Spider : Spider is a meth lab supervisor who’s insane enough to start a firefight despite the numerous chemicals surrounding him.
Petra : Ex-police officer turned crime boss, Petra is a former acquaintance of Aaron McVicar, who now holds some very incriminating evidence over McVicar’s head.
Frank Capidilupo : Frank Capidilupo is an old, corrupt New York mob boss whose age and size shouldn’t be underestimated, as he will stop at nothing to save himself and stay in power.
