"You ever gonna tell anyone what that fuckin' G stands for?" - Isaac asking G what his name stands for

"No." - G's response

"I'm gonna rip your motherfucking balls off!" - Isaac's taunt to zombies before shooting them

Once cleared, they approach the house making comments of revenge and stopping the outbreak before tomorrow. They bust into the doors and fight the terror.

"By tomorrow morning, I'll have my motherfucking revenge. Papa Caesar will be dead." - Isaac explaining his plan for revenge on Papa Caesar

"If we don't stop this mutant outbreak, by tomorrow morning, we'll all be dead." - G reminding Isaac of their mission

It starts by venturing into the lush green space outside and in front of the house similar to the one in the intro. Mutants will come from every corner. It is possible to kill them.

They first battle against a group of mutated vultures that will fly around and attack.

Afterwards, they will be confronted with the rest of the undead from the ground, the well and from above the roof.

They then break in through the doors.

The characters will then hide behind some furniture after hearing undead noises from the other side. A group of mutants will come from the double doors. 2 more mutants will, again, break in by window. The character will go beneath the dining table while shooting the 2 of them.

More mutants will charge towards the character from the doorway they entered, another one from behind them(presumably entered by the broken window), more from the door way on the other side and again from the doorway they entered.

Second Room - Sound Room

A group of mutants attack the characters inside this room. More mutants will break in from the boarded up windows, from another door way on the left side.

A pack of them will simultaneously enter the room alerting both characters to retreat.

"Fuck me. How many of them are there?" - Isaac questions their arrival.

"I'm more worried about where they're coming from." - G's response.

(It's optional to fight them off.)

They will head over back to the kitchen entering the next room. But before entering, they are greeted by other mutants.

"Mutants. How many times do I have to tell you? Not to use the Z-word." - G's response about using the other but popular term for the enemies.

After the comments, mutants will be guarded by broken wall panels.

After fighting them off, they will enter an elevator.

"We're in an express elevator to hell going..." - G joking around.

"Shut up and press the button". - Isaac stopping his foolishness,

"We should've taken the stairs" - G's hindsight comment followed by the elevator crashing down with the both of them screaming in a hilarious tone.

A loading screen will appear which sets up the underground section.

Upon arrival of underground section:

"Washington, y-you okay?" - G asking if Isaac is fine.

"No. I'am not okay, asshole." - Isaac's rude response.

The cutscene continues.

"Who taught these guys table manners?" - G's comment of obscene cannibalistic mannerisms

"Mother. These guys ain't human. I never seen this kind of crazy shit before." - Isaac's statement of the craziness.

Mutant's repulsive table manners.

"Alright, so what's the game though? You restraint the subject? and I'll lean an interrogation?" - G's approach to the situation.

"Fuck that, columbo! Shoot to maim." - Isaac's approach to the situation.

They proceed to maim all mutants.

Second Underground Section.

Upon leaving the meat grinding room, they will encounter the fourth and final civilian in need of a rescue. This rescue becomes difficult due to the civilian moving around obscuring the aiming. Also, mutants will come from 3 hallways in packs.

"Think we should tell him the elevator's out?" - G concerned.

"I say we let 'em find out for himself." - Isaac's response.

Poor Survivor.

Another cutscene takes place leading to this level's boss fight.

Boss Fight Cutscene

"A sadistic crime lord,master of a perverse science...They call him Caesar." - Narrator narrating.

"Darling, Jasper. Do you have a present for me?" - Papa Caesar's opening statement.

Both officers standing by.

"Our test subject's at the hospital are showing progress. You've done very well, my boy. We shall celebrate this tonight with take out Chinese!. - Caesar's celebration attempt.

"A brilliant mind, with a broken body. His talents turned to evil to protect the sister who raised him" - Narrator's bio of Jasper.


"You impotent cripple!(slaps him in the face) Think of your sister before threatening Papa Caesar. Next time you speak, turn the volume to zero...Fucking cabbage!" - Caesar's threat to Jasper.

"Nobody-Threatens-Varla." - Jasper defending his sister.

The Ultimate Sacrifice.

Freeze, Bitches!

Jasper screams in agony as the mutagen alters his anatomy. As he transforms, both officers stand back.

"Because of the shocking nature of the following scenes, they are definitely not recommended for the squeamish and the easily offended." - Narrator's hilarious comment of a censored scene.

Boss Fight

"What the?...I can't get a clean shot." - G having difficulty to aim

The player is enclosed in a testing chamber where the main boss fight is held in. They will run in circles to avoid the attacks. Jasper will be protected by objects flying around him. He will use his telekinesis to throw objects. The objects themselves can be shot at to reduce Jasper's chances of attacking. Though protected, his weakpoint is easily exposed making him vulnerable to gunfire.

He then floats in the direction of the characters trying to reach them while throwing chunks of flesh.

"What in the motherfucking hell?" - Isaac's statement in another telekinetic power.

Jasper will then create a ball of furniture and use it as a wrecking ball.

"He's mind touching you!" - Isaac's statement about Jasper's telekinetic powers.

"Get out of my head you motherfucking freak." - Another vulgar statement from Washington.

In the PS3 version, Jasper will levitate the character in an attempt to smash them down. Shooting a required target will thwart the attack.

"Not so fucking clever now are you, bitch?" - Isaac's closing remarks when successfully shooting the target.

A cutscene will show Jasper falling on the ground after the fight.

Jasper fallen

Level End Cutscene

"A family betrayed." - Narrator's Opening remarks.


They both approached Jasper's mutated, crippled body. Knowing he can't stop Caesar, he tells the officers his love to his sister.

"Fuck! How do you say that shit without moving you lips? G, you see this shit?" - Isaac questions the weird science.

"I can help ease the pain." - G pointing his gun to Jasper.

"No you can fucking not. Shoot the motherfucker." - Washington's advise.

"Don't you do tact? That's what I'm going to fucking do. Y'know..." - G defending his painkiller solution.

"Shut the fuck up and shoot! Shit!" - Isaac trying to shut G up.

An act of mercy

"Happy now? Fuckwit." - G's response.

They holster their guns to Varla's first appearance.

"You're his sister?" - Both said the same statement with G in question and Isaac checking out her body.

You fucking bastards - You've killed my brother

"Varla Guns. A doting sibling to a crippled brother, forced into a life of vice. Now she's filled with a primal hunger for revenge." - Narrator's bio of Varla.

Mankind's last hope now rests on the shoulder's of two men.

"Caesar's heading to the hospital. We've gotta stop that asshole before he get's there." - Isaac telling G the next mission.

"Tasteful ride." - G's comment on Isaac's pride and joy(car).

"Don't disrespect my wheels - she's my pride and joy!" - Isaac telling G to avoid disrespecting his car.

Isaac's car explodes.

We'll take my car

"The Plantation House has claimed it's victim, but with Papa Caesar on the loose, nobody is safe." - Narrator narrating the current scenario.

Varla comforting her dead brother.

"You die trying to stop Caesar. I won't rest until I shot his fucking guts over half the county." - Varla's closing remarks.
