    This double-pack right here is proof of the greatness of Rockstar Games! DLC? These are complete games in their own rights, as short as theyThis double-pack right here is proof of the greatness of Rockstar Games! DLC? These are complete games in their own rights, as short as they are. From dedicated stories to new weapons, interiors, cars and characters, nothing is left out. And each episode delivers, from the gritty feel of TLAD to the vibe of TBOGT, there's nothing to be missed! And above all, this is also an example for many other developers/publishers about "how it should be done"! Expand

    Episodes from Liberty City is more like a big expansion pack than "DLC." You get two completely new campaigns for an absurdly low price. LotsEpisodes from Liberty City is more like a big expansion pack than "DLC." You get two completely new campaigns for an absurdly low price. Lots of new weapons, new vehicles, new helicopters, new cutscenes, new characters, and more explosive (and I mean EXPLOSIVE... heheh) GTA action - all crammed into one purchase, for a low price.

    Don't expect new graphics though. It's the same game-world and city as GTAIV, it's just with significantly more new content to enjoy. If you haven't purchased it yet, I would definitely recommend it. It's a great value, and it'll be more than enough to keep you entertained until GTA V comes out!

    Endless hours of entertainment with this game weather you choose to do missions, or just cause havoc on the streets of Liberty City. Of courseEndless hours of entertainment with this game weather you choose to do missions, or just cause havoc on the streets of Liberty City. Of course the more missions you complete, the more you're going to have options as far as weapons and newer exotic vehicles to steal. Software itself is well rendered and the modelling within the game is superb without causing my system to grind to a ultra slow march. Spectacular graphics with settings maxed out- well worth the upgrade of your video card if required. Expand

    The characters are great, EFLC has new features like parachuting, motorcycle racing, gang wars and new weapons, vehicles and places to visitThe characters are great, EFLC has new features like parachuting, motorcycle racing, gang wars and new weapons, vehicles and places to visit like nightclubs. The game is a great complement to the GTA IV story. Though it runs on Game for Windows Live which is very annoying and quite difficult to setup. The game couldn't run on Windows 8.1 unless you tweak it, but it could run normally on Windows 7. Expand

    this is a good game, its better than the normal gta 4 in my opinion, but the only serious flaw i find is that for pc gamers the game runsthis is a good game, its better than the normal gta 4 in my opinion, but the only serious flaw i find is that for pc gamers the game runs terribly, i have a pretty mid-high end system but when i first got gta 4 the game worked perfect and id play it for ages, anyway when episodes from liberty city was released they changed the way the game was rendered with a patch and it made the game run badly, the game stutters a lot even at medium settings where before i could play on high and enjoy the beutiful city rockstar had created in the gta world but now this ruins the game for me, i can play it but it just fustrates me that a game tha once was perfect got ruined for me and many other users by a patch to make the game look just a little but better for the people with supercomputers, if you have a supercomputer though the game wil work fine but if u just use a regular gaming pc like most gamers u may find this game doesnt perform too well and it may kill the experience of it for you, which is pretty dissapointing becasue its a really fun game to play Expand

    Tough choice. I loved GTA IV, and think game-wise that was one of the best example in video-gaming.
    However, all things, good and bad, must come to an end, and the Murphy's Law #132 dictates. And so did this series as well as Rockstar, at least for me.

    My SocialClub account would not work with the game. So i tried my Microsoft Live account, to no avail. I went ahead and created another Social Club account but still could not log into the Club. I tried playing Offline Mode, but was surprised to find out that my progress would not be saved unless i was logged in. I researched some stuff on internet. Pretty futile, since all i could find is lack of response from Rockstar Support Team. I tested my Microsoft Box account and it work with another game, but not with Liberty. I went ahead and created another Live Account and was finally able to log into the game. Hooray! However, i did spent... wasted over 2 hours just trying to get the game working. Ammm, pretty much a fail at this point, but i really respect the series and started playing.

    Well, i played for a couple of hours and was not impressed. The story seemed to be involving, the characters - well-developed, although copy-pasted from the original (talking about the protagonist), the missions kind of samey but still fun. What drove me nuts was that after fighting through a mission you have to make sure your bike is not destroyed, or that you don't accidentally get onto someone else's bike, because in both cases - guess what - start the mission over, without money or bullets. And when you are doing a mission with your partner you need to make sure his bike doesn't get wrecked during the combat as well. So here was my mission - we come to the spot, the stupid mo-fo drops his bike right in line of fire of the enemy, i then hide my bike behind the corner, run towards his bike, and repark the damn thing, while, of course, bullets are whistling above my head. Die once - it's ok, replay the mission because you still have money to buy a new armor and some bullets. Die a second time - and that's it - no bullets no money to buy them.

    So the game itself is around 7/10, but the DRM brings it down for me - i can't have constant internet connection, nor do i want to play online, nor do i have to register some stupid log in name, etc.

    Bye-bye Rockstar.
    I'll find a gazzilion of games to support with my money who are not yet as greedy as you.

    FAIL.

    Bad optimization and GFWL makes it worse.
    Dancing is not fun. The vehicles control like boats.
    Won't work properly on Windows 8. This seems
