It’s usually a bad thing when rappers get a game based on their musical persona. 50 Cent Bulletproof is widely regarded as one of the worst games ever made, and its sequel is known as one of the most unintentionally funny games ever made. Now Snoop
Dogg Lion is trying his hand at the whole video game thing.
In Way of the Dogg, our protagonist, America Jones, finds himself with a dead girlfriend or something. Vowing revenge, he seeks training from Snoop Dogg at his mystical temple. What follows is a rhythm combat game where players hit buttons in time with Snoop’s classic beats.
While Way of the Dogg is a rhythm fighter, some are going to make the comparison to Shaq Fu. The good news is that Snoop’s new game can’t be anywhere near as bad as Shaq Fu. The bad news is that it will probably still be a lousy game, as most licensed games are.
Way of the Dogg is coming to the PS3, Xbox 360, Android and iOS sometime in the near future.
