Like The Lost and Damned before it, The Ballad of Gay Tony redefines expectations of downloadable content, but this new episode does so much more beside. It’s the perfect send-off for one of this generation’s definitive titles, it takes the Grand Theft Auto IV experience and injects it with the spirit of the series’ past, resulting in a game that can be mentioned in the same breath as San Andreas or Vice City.
It's easy to see some fans being frustrated at this expansion's direction. 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.
However, despite the story and characters being a bit dullish and uninteresting, GTA gamers are given a definitive reason to see this three-part story to its conclusion with the core GTA gameplay – replete with the standard vehicle manslaughter opportunity gamers have come to know (and in many cases love) ? remaining as gratifyingly volatile and as ever.
Time and expectations have taken a certain toll on Grand Theft Auto IV, but all that aside, the bottom line for The Ballad of Gay Tony is that it's just not as good as the GTAIV experiences that preceded it. It feels like Rockstar has run out of tricks, and it has got its work cut out for it with whatever comes next for Grand Theft Auto.
Those who wanted gta iv to be a little more crazy and fun are in luck.
This expansion is one of the best in the history of video games, better than many full games
The story of Luis López also joins that of Niko and Johnny but somewhat less and has a lot of personality. We will meet characters as good as Tony and Yusuf Amir, we will see Bulgarin again and he has the craziest missions of gta
The novelties of this expansion are among other things: New songs, new vehicles, minigames, fighting, triathlons, base jumping, drug wars, club management and also the graphics improved in all its versions compared to gta iv and tlad
And also added new modes and features to online mode
This expansion closes the fantastic story of niko's gta iv, with the stories of the biker Johnny and the manager Luis López. Mixing three stories of liberty city where people are crazy and anything can happen.
I think I'll play it again, I love it
