Synopsis


Once a veteran of a notorious biker gang in Liberty City, Johnny Klebitz has returned from rehab intent on revenge and destruction. Upon his arrival back to the seedy underbelly of his city, he discovers that he is now caught in the middle of a vicious turf war with rival gangs. Johnny must fight for the survival and the good of his brotherhood. Luis Lopez is a part-time thug and a full-time assistant to Liberty City nightclub legend Tony Prince. The addictive glamour of the nightlife causes Luis to struggle with the temptations of corruption and cash against his loyalties to family and friends. In a world where everyone has a price, can Luis find a way through the guns, glitz and grime?

Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City includes two complete games — The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony. Take a dark journey through Liberty City's seedy underside in The Lost and Damned as Johnny Klebitz, who fights to keep his biker gang together after violence threatens to rip the group apart.

    "THIS GAME IS AMAZING!!! and way better then playing it on Xbox 360. I bought this game as soon as it came out and it is brillliant, vey fun and very much worth your money. With two different stories to play it brings plenty of hours of gameplay. And believe it or not, it is slightly more realistic than GTA4, i don't know how thats possible for $40.00 it is worth it. is also very funny in places and is a great way to have fun in LC. If ur a fan of the GTA series then this is definitely the game for you. Gay Tony is really fun and has some amazing set pieces, (including a shootout in coney island and atop the empire state building). Its cool seeing all the things that went on in the backround of Nikos story. If you have played GTA4, Then you need this to finish the party. there is so much in this game to see and do. theres so much satire and probably the best soundtrack in a GTA ever- Ska, Dance, 80s pop, Rock.. Funniest game you'll play for a long time. buy it on PS3 :D

    GTA IV Episodes of Liberty City definitely rose the bar on the GTA series. Its about two side line stories that happen before and after GTA IV. Before GTA IV is The Lost and Damned which you play as a bike gang member from The Lost who are in war with The Angels of Death! The story is intense and you definitely need experience with the control function. They also added a few guns like the Sawnoff Shotgun, my favorite. The Ballod of Gay Tony is after GTA IV. Playing as Luis Lopez, the body guard and right handman of Gay Tony, a club owner, who owes money to the Italia mafia. This game adds some high tech weapons you got to see for yourselves. All in all its worth it! Each holds a total of 50 missions which happen to be insane so good luck with that.:)

    If you were a fan of Grand Theft Auto IV, Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City will be more of what you loved about GTA IV. Episodes from Liberty City gives you two more storylines (2 complete GTA games) making it a great supplement to GTA IV. Both stories take place at the same time as the events of GTA IV. Some missions will make you cross paths with GTA IV protagonist, Niko Bellic, letting you experience the original GTA IV missions from another character's perspective. All in all, I enjoyed revisiting Liberty City again through Episodes from Liberty City.

    Bought the game when it first came out and i got to say i love what they did to it. Most people asking me why i nvr review it. Well here goes to really appreciate this game you need to buy the original GTA IV, once you have that play through the game and pay close attention. Then once you pop this baby in you will understand what is going. Short version you playing the story of 2 others guys that had a small role in IV you now get to see what made them involve themselves in some of your mission in IV.

    NIce Addition.!!!

    GTA: Episodes is a nice addition to the GTA4 story. I just bought it and started with The Ballad of Gay Tony...(its the 1 i really wanted 2 play 1st.) I love the way it starts w/Luis, your character, walking through liberty city and Niko passes in a car and u see the Lost and Damned guys ride pass on their bikes. I just thought it was a nice touch. Anyway, the game so far is typical GTA. The character are memorable...so far at least, and the voice acting is top notch. Idk what else 2 say right now...its still early, but, for this price who wouldn't want a GTA 2 for 1...pick it up.

    What is with the grainy graphics??

    Posted
    JonnyPistolWhips

    I had super high hopes for this new title, but the game just doesn't live up. The most notable issue is the grainy noise effect on textures in LaD. The stories are just so-so, BoGT is much better than LaD. The riding on the motorcycles is much better than in GTA4, but overall there is just something lacking in the general gameplay. Helicopter fighting is fun, but doesn't make up for the rest of the sub-par gaming. Overall it is nice to have an extension of the GTA saga, but the graphics are of such poor quality compared to GTA4 that for me this was a step backward by Rockstar.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    A great way to end the GTAIV saga...

    Essential

    I ike these games a great deal. TBOGT is funner in my opinion, but you will enjoy them both. It is fun to see Niko's story connect with these, and see favorite characters return. Motorcycles mechanics have been improved for TLAD which eliminate the need to even want to drive a car. Some animations have been tweaked as well, for better or worse. Overall, if you love the world of GTAIV, you can not go wrong with these two great expansions.
