James Earl Cash was sentenced to death by lethal injection but wakes up to find he was only sedated. Someone is speaking to him through an earpiece and tells him he can live as long as he follows the "Director's" instructions and is introduced to a gang called the Hoods.

Cash must kill the first few Hoods to "audition" to be the star in a snuff film. Then Cash must fight a Hood and beat him to death while the Director films it with surveillance cameras. Then he must make his way to the Carcer Mark Mall, killing more hunters along the way, before heading up the stairs to the roof of the mall and kill more, before jumping through the trash chute.

  • Towards the beginning, there is a shop called Ryton Aide which also appeared in GTA: Vice City.
