Somewhere in a dark, and evil city, crime and corruption have destroyed any normal way of life. One man walks the Path of Vengeance, carving a road to nowhere with his weapons blazing. He is the deadly hitman known only as The Sniper; feared by both lowly street thugs and lords of the underworld alike. Now a vicious crime war has erupted on the streets, and The Sniper is caught in the middle. Framed, drugged, and imprisoned, you must kill your way through the ranks of power to find the source of this war, and end your Path of Vengeance.
