The game goes back six months before in Miami, where undercover police officer Tanner (voiced by Michael Madsen), is attempting to infiltrate South Beach, one of the cities most ruthless gangs. The game begins with Tanner practicing in a shooting range, before being called to assist police in capturing Baccus, a member of South Beach who has betrayed them for a position within another gang. Tanner shoots dead all of Baccus's protectors before going after Baccus in a car chase. Baccus finally crashes his car before running down an alleyway, where Tanner shoots him. Baccus reveals the location of one of South Beach's most expensive cars, which Baccus gave to a rival gang as a token of loyalty.
