  1. The tone of the story is, after all, quite a departure from the franchise's previous two outings. However, the amusing dialogue, fun gameplay, and delightfully absurd missions make this a must-buy for everyone, whether by download (in which case it requires a copy of GTA IV to run) or on disc with The Lost and Damned.
  2. GTA returns to its utmost craziness through a great and charming story.

Luis es un joven hispano que trabaja junto a su mejor amigo Tony (El Gay) en un nightclub. mientras el ayuda a su loco y estupido socio debe involucrarse en peleas callejeras. traiciones y sobretodo cruces con nico y johnny que haran que su vida sea todo un desastre. al igual que con GTA4 L&D es practicamente un juego completo y obligatorio para poder entender toda la historia del GTA4. excelente Expand

This one somewhy reminded me of Vice City, with it's gloss, sunshine and one particularly eccentric person. Yusuf Amir, son of a wealthy Arab businessman, very much reminded me of Diaz. The plot is great and fun, with lots of new interesting characters, as well as cameos from the original game. The relations between Lois (the main character) and Gay Tony (his boss) are a very well-presented story of a friendship. If you own a GTA IV, or you just consider yourself a GTA fan, this one is a must-buy. Expand

It's not as good as TLAD and IV, but it's not bad. The changes in this game since IV are: Bass Jumping which is fun at first, then I never did it again, and Clubbing: I never would have thought how fun clubbing would be in a GTA game, but it is. There are lless problems than the PC port of IV, but there are still more than TLAD. Expand

I was really enjoying this DLC but about 8 missions in a mission with Luis' mother (Momma's boy) the game has a glitch where the game will load indefinitely after the cutscene. I got that problem fixed but later in the mission it will load for about 1 minute and you spawn dead. I looked around a lot and couldn't fix it. This is really frustrating because as I said I was really enjoying this. So I really have no choice but to give it a low score. Expand
