The story goes that players, in the role of a deadly hit man known only as "the sniper," will find themselves caught up in the middle of a crime war between underworld bosses and the lowly thugs that wander the streets. Feared by both sides, the sniper is framed, drugged, and imprisoned, and he must subsequently fight his way through 25 levels and countless enemies to locate the source of the war.
Enemies in the game will include the Mob, Chinese crime bosses, and crooked cops, so it's just as well that in addition to the requisite sniper rifle, players will have access to Sigs, hand grenades, and a number of other weapons.
