Jack Carver, an ex-Navy Officer, offers his services as a freelance charter boat captain. He is employed by a reporter named Valerie Cortez to take her to the mysterious island of Jacutan. Upon arriving at Jacutan, Cortez borrows a water scooter from Jack and heads off on her own to investigate. Unworried, Jack decides to nap until she comes back. When he awakes, Carver is startled to find helicopters flying around his boat. They open fire and destroy his boat, forcing him to bail out and swim for the shore. On shore, Jack acquires a headset, and is directed by a mysterious voice who calls himself "Doyle". As it turns out, Cortez is part of the CIA, and came to rescue Doyle. Doyle had been on a mission to expose the works of a mad scientist named Dr. Krieger. Krieger, along with his right-hand man, an ex-Apartheid officer named Crowe, were attempting to develop a serum that would enhance the physical abilities of man, and "unlock" hidden animal traits. Carver is thus recruited by Doyle to find and rescue Cortez, who has been captured by Crowe, and stop Krieger's nefarious activities.
After the tragedy of Jacutan and the fall of Crowe, Krieger, and his men, Jack continues his life in financial debt, often at the "bottom of a glass". With the loss of his boat, Jack has since then kept his super-human abilities dormant, until a beautiful woman named Kade gives him a chance of a lifetime, or so it seems. Jack finds himself on a coastal Asian chain of islands. Before he can unload the plane that he was directed to unload while Kade makes a deal with the Governor, local rebels attack. The Governor is killed by a warrior chieftain with similar feral abilities named Semeru. The blame rests on Jack's shoulders, so he must redeem himself, stop this madman and escape alive, even if it means a blade between his ribs. An old friend, Doyle, help out, but is later slain by Semeru. At the climax of the game, Jack is betrayed by his lover Kade, to save her life. Semeru at the hands of it all. Semeru is later killed by Carver..
