Gangstar Vegas is set in modern-day Las Vegas, Nevada. The story revolves around Jason Malone, a skilled MMA fighter who is targeted by Frank Veliano after winning in a match.

Gangstar Vegas is structured similarly to previous games in the series, and by extension, to Grand Theft Auto and its numerous clones. The overall play area is much larger, with Gameloft marketing it as “Gangstar’s largest open world”. In addition to the main storyline, players can free roam and/or partake in a number of side activities, namely bank robberies, street racing and underground fighting tournaments. Property management is also present, allowing the player to gain income through businesses acquired during the course of the game. In keeping with the game’s Las Vegas theme, casino minigames such as video poker, blackjack and slot machines were also introduced, along with a number of establishments such as a nightclub and convenience stores.
A number of updates were added to Gangstar Vegas after its initial release, among them a Saints Row-esque Gangstar vs. Aliens pack,and a Christmas-themed update adding new clothing and vehicles such as a rocket-powered sleigh. In addition, the game has since been released as a free-to-play title, with bonus content available through microtransactions. Its frequent use of updating also received criticism from some fans and critics, whom they noted the lack of weapons, vehicles, and costumes, and the lag graphics part.
Professional MMA fighter Jason “the Kid” Malone is bribed by the powerful Mafia leader, Don Frank Veliano, to take a dive in his fight against Pietro Holston. Frank Veliano told Jason Malone to fall in the fourth round but Pietro falls before Jason can take the dive. He is chased by Frank and his Mafia before Karen Olsen, the accountant and bodyguard of Vera “Leatherface” Montello, arrives and helps him escape. Jason later works for the Montello queenpin, Karen and Eric “E-Man”, a pimp and drug maker-dealer, mostly in causing chaos against the Velianos.
Frank and his henchmen later storm Montello’s celebration, capturing Jason and forcing him to work for the Velianos, including Benny, Frank’s right-hand man, and mayoral candidate Rev. Winston “Preacher” Goodman. Jason steals a boat, a seaplane and a helicopter for the Velianos, as well as fighting the Hispanic street gang, the Huevos. After crashing the Huevos’ party, however, Jason finds that the Velianos have kidnapped Karen, and are forcing Vera to hand over her strip club, Fire and Vice, to Frank in exchange for Karen.
Jason helps the Montellos save Karen by stealing wire tapping devices from an army base and planting it to pinpoint Frank and Karen’s position. He later joins Eric and Vera to raid Frank’s casino, where Karen is held. They then escape Frank’s soldiers, but at the cost of Vera sacrificing herself to stop reinforcements, out of remorse for having bribed Pietro to lose the MMA fight.
Enraged by Vera’s loss, and the truth that Frank killed her father, Karen wants Jason out of the Mafia war. Jason saves her again from Veliano, convincing her to accept his help. Karen kisses Jason (it is also possible they make out in Jason’s Whiptail, as the scene is faded out) before taking back Fire and Vice. Jason later sabotages Frank’s villa, and uses the media (the only business in Vegas not controlled by Veliano) to mock the LVPD’sincompetence (Frank has also bribed the police).
Finding that Benny has been arrested, Frank seeks to remove him. Jason rescues Benny as Veliano’s mob intercepts the police convoy. Benny has photos of Goodman’s debauchery, and Jason threatens Goodman to turn against Frank, otherwise the photos are leaked. Cornered and betrayed, and with the FBI on his tail, Frank tries to flee Las Vegas with his money. Jason confronts him on the Wrecking Ball Hotel Casino Tower (a parody of Stratosphere Las Vegas), only to have Frank shoot at him, leaking the helicopter’s fuel tank in the process. Jason lights up the petrol, setting Frank on fire and falling to his death, and then Jason parachute landing into Karen’s Störer (a parody of the Koenigsegg CCX).
