  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.

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

    Ok aside from an improved engine over GTA4 vanilla, and some new stories whats really changed? well nothing major, a few new multiplayer modesOk aside from an improved engine over GTA4 vanilla, and some new stories whats really changed? well nothing major, a few new multiplayer modes with new weapons and vehicles.. and that on PC the both Lost & Damned and Gay Tony packs are a standalone game.. basically.. apart from the usual issues that blighted GTA4 (Console engine didnt port to PC to take advantage of high end video cards or multi core cpus) this game is damn fun and a must have to any collection.

En general aporta nuevo contenido mejorado, además pule las mecánicas de conducción y de movimiento para que se sienta mejor.

    Lo único que diría que me ha decepcionado de este DLC es en el contenido adicional, hablando principalmente de las guerras de bandas, ya que tiene diálogos repetitivos, solo da 3 tipos de misiones distintas las cuales iras turnando hasta hacer 25... etc . En general eso es lo peor de este DLC, pero aporta muchísimas nuevas actividades, vehículos, armas y cosas que hacer en el mundo de GTA IV.

    En fin no hay mucho más que decir, al fin y al cabo es un DLC. Ahora mismo te vendrá si o si con GTA IV si lo compras en PC y la verdad que para que en su momento valiese 15 pavos, esto era un chollo.

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
