The player character is Ramiro "Ram" Cruz, an athletic wisecracker. Ramiro, after witnessing his father Ernesto being murdered (along with some kittens, which were Ram's birthday present to his father) in a freak combine harvester accident, wants revenge on the culprits responsible. The player fights with drug lords, corrupt bandits, femme fatales, crooked mercenaries, and ritualistic zombies. In between missions the player can choose to play mini games, in each of which the player is dropped right into the middle of a situation and must complete a number of moves (Fly on the Wall, Burrito Blast, Etc.) with a limited number of enemies, or beat a set score in a limited amount of time. There is no free-roaming option in the game.
