This is a first-person shooter in which players assume the role of a bank robber for hire who takes on various heists/jobs. Players traverse a modern city and earn skill points and experience on their way to becoming elite criminals. Players use pistols, machine guns, and sniper rifles to shoot and kill various human characters; some of these characters include police and SWAT team members. Players have the ability to shoot random civilians, but there is a penalty for doing so. Violence is highlighted by realistic gunfire, cries of pain, and large blood-splatter effects. During the course of the game, some paintings and drawings depict women in suggestive poses and/or revealing outfits. Some missions require interaction with drugs: in one mission, players cook and defend batches of methamphetamine (“meth”); another mission requires players to guard and transport large bags of cocaine. The words “f**k,” “sh*t,” and “a*shole” appear in the dialogue.
