Synopsis




Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City delivers two games on one disc — the all-new episode The Ballad of Gay Tony and the first episode, The Lost and Damned — together on disc for the first time.

Take on the role of Luis Lopez, part-time hoodlum and full-time assistant to nightclub impresario Tony "Gay Tony" Prince, in The Ballad of Gay Tony. Enter a world in which the line between fantasy and reality is blurred, and strive to balance the competing loyalties of family and friends when everyone around you has a price. Then explore Liberty City as The Lost biker gang member Johnny in The Lost and Damned. When your club's president, Billy Grey, returns from rehab with an eye fixed on bloodshed and debauchery, will you be able to survive and rise above the ensuing turf warfare between rival gangs, even as it tears the city apart?

    I fully recommend half of this package

    I recommend getting this set of games if you have played GTA 4. The price makes it worth it. It provides both of the extra campaigns for the gta 4 game. The first one to come out was the Lost and the Damned. In this one you are a biker in a biker gang. The story is great and the extras are great. Who wants an automatic shotgun? I know I do. It is still set in Liberty City but it provides a different experience from Niko's. The new activities made for this game are a blast as well. I could do the harley races with bats all day. A very entertaining GTA experience. The Ballad of Gay Tony, the other campaign, didn't really offer that same kind of entertainment for me, however. The story wasn't all that interesting and a lot of the missions werent all that fun for me and a lot of the characters just ended up annoying me. I do have to give props to rockstar for how they handled the game, though. I was afraid that they were going to just beat the whole gay subject over my head until I went crazy. I thought they were going to push the whole gay rights thing through the game but thankfully they didn't touch that subject and just focused on other matters. Kudos. The side missions in the game were just boring and the fun ones just got repetitive due to the same situations repeating themselves multiple times. Skydiving does make an appearance, however, and it is enjoyable to do. Also, the added armory is pretty awesome too. This campaign isn't terrible by a long shot but compared to GTA 4 and LATD it wasn't as enjoyable. The only real fun I got from the game was from seeing how this story was integrated into Niko's from GTA 4. All in all I give Lost and the Damned a 9/10 and Gay Tony a 7/10. So pick this up. Who knows, you might enjoy The Ballad of Gay Tony more than I did.

    The Ballad of Gay Tony is the best episode yet! The game features new weapons, cars, and they brought back the parachute! Buying the disc is better too because it saves you atleast 4GB of memory on your Hard drive from dowloading both games. It's a must own if you love GTA. And it's a good price. If you already downloaded the Lost and Damned, you can delete the 1.8 GB game from your hard drive but keep your saved TLAD game/mission progress so you can use it on the disc.

    The best thing about Episode of Liberty City is that it got you back into GTA IV in a completely new way. New characters, new story line (that weaves into the original in a very clever way) and completely new ways to play the game based on these new stories. A game like GTA starts to get a little old after a while, and this was a nice shot of fresh air to the game.

    At first I was a little skeptical as to wether or not this DLC was worth it. But after playing this for a couple hours, I've come to the conclusion that this is more than decent story DLC, this is 2 brand new story's set within the GTA 4 universe and it's awesome! Go out and get it as soon as you can!!!

    This game fits right into the GTA family. I have been playing the line of GTA games for a long time throughout my life and this game is nothing short of excellent. Rockstar did an awesome job with the graphics and storyline. What's great about this game is it comes with two popular GTA 4 games. What a deal!

    It was a little buggy at parts compared to GTA 5, so if you've played 5 already, I wouldn't recommend playing this afterword like I did unless you can put up with the buggy parts. Plus the driving is not as fun in 4 compared with 5. If you haven't played 5 yet, I'd recommend this.

    My son wanted Grand Theft Auto 4. We were told by one of the employees at the store that this was even better. My son cannot play online with his friends with this game & we tried to return it, but would only have gotten like $8.00 for it -- so we kept it, but he can't play it like he wanted to.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    I think this a great addition to the GTA series. I really enjoy the open world games where you can continue on a mission or not, yet still have an enjoyable experience. Both Liberty City Stories were fun to play.
