England is well known for football's fanatical side. Football Hooliganism included fighting, throwing of objects and sometimes led to death for some. Football teams' 'hardcore' fans would attack the opposing teams' supporters and even destroy parts of their stadium (ripping up chairs etc).
Beginning of game:
It is 1998. You play a man called Brian Henderson (currently aged 19), a football hooligan and a devoted fan to England and Milton FC, he's also part of the Milton Bushwackers. You play a few missions in enclosed areas, in these missions, you learn how to fight, use melee weapons and driving. The final mission set in 1998 takes place in and around a Monarch city derby match with West Hart FC, where you learn to throw and pick up things (like in IV) and how to grab. You then get arrested by Riot police. You have a older brother, Michael (aged 22 and also part of the Milton Bushwackers) and a dad called John (aged 49). Brian's mother died when he was 10.
Cutscenes before actual game:
You see Brian getting sentenced and him going to prison whilst the credits roll...
The actual game:
Brian's 10 (trials date was after '98) year sentence is up and he's out of prison, but he has little education, a bad record, no money and the Bushwackers have dissolved, what will he do?
The first part of the game you see Brian standing outside Clackenville Prison, he calls his brother, but there's no answer, you learn how to use the Monarch City Underground which you take back to your dads house. He reveals he's a middle-ranking man in the Preston Firm and you tell him you're looking for money for a house, a series (about 6-7) of missions involving robberies, murders, car thefts and muggings you move on after your father recommended you to the head of the Preston Firm, Mr. Richard Preston III, he gives you more high-end, higher pay jobs, such as kidnapping, murder, arson etc. Eventually he then recommends you to his upper-class friends, one takes you up, his name being Mr. Alfred Wellington (this is where all the British stereotypes come out), you do missions for him and he becomes your friend.
This is the turning point... You get home from your last mission, you find your dad dead and your brother and Mr. Preston (later dies) wounded badly (mission to take him to hospital). You then find out that your father was in severe debt and he had a meeting with Mr. Preston to discuss more pay and a loan to pay off Loan Sharks. Despite your father's death you keep living in the house. Funeral day comes, all his friends turn up, including Alfred Wellington and Horaz Sefagili, a member of the Sefagili Turkish Mafia. During the funeral, the loan sharks come and attack and try to destroy the coffin (like in IV), you try to drive off, Alfred and Horaz come to help (your brother cannot, he's in hospital). After the mission and the killing of the attackers you learn that also the killer of your father had connections with the Clackenworth Crime Syndicate (Irish Mob), Horaz is impressed with you gun handling skills, he offers you help in finding your father's killer exchange for you helping them. The Sefagilis are in a everlasting war against the CCS, a series of missions involves you being an agent in the CCS. The Turkish Mafia strand ends in a bloodbath fight in which the Turkish Mafia wins (you sided with them), you also found out your fathers killer now lives in Tacton Towers.
You then are called by Masat saying that there's a deal going on around Tacton Towers with the Yardies over Arms trade. He tells you to go down and watch them. Everything goes wrong, you are left with a bunch of dead Turkish-Cypriots and a load of Clackenworth-Allied Jamaicans. You return back to Masat in a fury, he explains everything, but Brian doesn't believe it. Whilst you're still friends with Horaz, you refuse to work for the Sefagilis. Without the backing of them Brian looks for a new gang to help him find Patrick Murphy. He finds the Bangladeshi Man Dem, a street gang based in Tacton Towers. In exchange for them helping you, you help them fight the SS 18's, a neo-Nazi gang. You then go on to kill their leader Keith Sage whilst he gets moved from Wickworth to Clackville Prison (similar to the O'Malley mission). You then find Patrick Murphy and he tells you that he was hired by the Loan Shark, Adnan Kachavic, unfortunately, he was part of the Albanian team that robbed Securitas in 2007, the UK's biggest robbery, and so has good protection. Brian then returned to the Preston Firm in Burwich. As this time, Michael was due out of hospital in which you meet up with him etc. During the time spent with the Turkish Mafia and the Bangladeshi Man Dem the Preston Firm fell apart, Brian thought that the only way of Adnan was rebuilding the Preston Firm with his brother and getting to him that way. After everything he'd done. The higher ranking members of the firm accepted him and his brother as the leader of the Preston Firm. After a few missions you do a bank job with your brother, Alfred Wellington and Horaz. The bank is where Adnan's money is kept. After, you and the Preston Firm are rich.
You do an arms deal with the Yardies in South London and meet Bobby McKenzie (Lil' Jacob with a different appearance and a weaker accent). As a friend you help him deal drugs to people, unfortunately one of the deals was tipped to the police in which you get caught.
Now it's in the final quarter of the story... You are then forced to work for the police you meet the man on the other side of the deal, Salim Ali Ahmed, a member of the Muslim Men, you become friends. You are moved to Central Monarch City and do errands for them, after you go back to Burwich and back to the Preston Firm. In which you expand the firm out west, an area with a lot less crime then places like Crayford, Burwich and Tacton Towers. After the success you then go off and kill Adnan.

- Marked Cars: These are cars that when marked appear outside your house where the respawn until you unmark them (Note: They only respawn if you destroy the car or if you lose it). You're allowed one marked car per house.
- Gun Shops: There are two types of Gun Shop:
- Legal: These allow you to buy legal guns after you pass the shooting range challenge.
- Illegal: These allow you to buy Illegal and homemade weapons and parts for guns without needing to pass the shooting range, but they are more expensive.
- There are also hardware shops.
- Mobile phone: although it hasn at changed much, there are different types and you have the ability to save photos
- Robberies: There are three types of robbery: Ram-raiding, an ordinary robbery and a smash and grab.
- Ram-raiding is when you ram a car into the shop* and take whatever.
- And a smash and grab robbery when the objective is to take products from the shop window when you smash it **.
- And an ordinary robbery is similar to the one in Vice City except the type of shop depends on the wanted level:
Any kind of small-sized shop = **
Any kind of medium-sized shop (this includes small jewelry shops and betting shops) = ***
Any kind of large shop = ****
* = You need a car that has been modified for this, or a simple pick-up will do. After you can empty the shop
**= You need a handheld weapon of some sort. The items will be automatically transformed into money.
Car Modification: San Andreas' car customization is back! Not a day goes by that I don't see a car that hasn't been modified in any way. Good for racing and your car can be imported to online racing. Combined with the marked car feature, you shouldn't feel the need to stock it at the back of your garage.

- As you complete missions your 'respect-o-meter' with the gangs will change.
- The order goes: [LIST]
•Hated - Will be attacked on sight
•Untrusted - Will be attacked if you pull out any weapon or if you harm anyone even if there's a police presence
•Neutral - Will be attacked if you kill a civilian or if you pulled out a gun with no police presence
•Trusted - Will help if you're getting mugged. Will only attack if you harm a gang member. Both will only happen with no police presence
•Friendly - Will help when there's police and mugging. Will only attack if you kill a gang member (obviously the member will retaliate if punched). They also know who you are.
- These include muggings, attempted murders/assassinations and revenge strikes*
- You can also find others getting this, women can be seen getting attacked and thrown to the floor. When spotted the original attacker attacks you or runs. Whichever if he's gone the woman/man gives you a small amount of cash in return for your help.
*= Revenge kills happen when a gang member is killed, these only happen occasionally. However if you kill a higher ranking member (they ride in better cars and have bodyguards with good weapons), there DEFINATELY will be a hit on you.
- By pushing L1 at your door you can pick up letters. These can contain anything, from hitman requests to blackmail.
