The first level gives you a refresher on the combat principles of the game, which center around basic fisticuffs, as well as melee combat with handy weapons such as pipes, boards, bricks or whatever else you find lying around on the ground. The first level also reintroduces you to the supernatural elements introduced in the first game, through your hallucinations and mysterious televisions and radios scattered throughout the levels that you have to tune in by moving the antenna around.
Just telling you any more about the first level of the game would expose major spoilers about the game, and I'm determined not to do that. Just take that as evidence that the game is chock full of plot twists and turns-some of them expected, but most of them completely unexpected, just like an infected bum popping out from behind a dumpster, holding a 2X4 with your name on it. Just trust me when I say that dirty back alleys and abandoned buildings are only the beginning of the places you'll see and where you'll beat up people."
