  1. 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. 90
    GTA returns to its utmost craziness through a great and charming story.
  3. The Ballad of Gay Tony again takes the cheeky and impossible spirit of Grand Theft Auto San Andreas, and brings it back to life with the fantastic technology from GTA IV. An amazing opportunity to revisit the always amazing Liberty City.
  4. Funnier and more diversified […], Gay Tony extends the fun for 10 hours at least.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. GTA IV was an awesome game. I liked the story, the city and the characters (most of the time). GTA: The Ballad of Gay Tony blows GTA IV directly out of the water! Not only are the brighter graphics a great touch but the addition of new and advanced weapons, tanks, the Buzzard attack chopper and parachutes make this game a million times more immersing and entertaining. The story nicely revolves around the struggles of Anthony "Gay Tony" Prince, a nightlife legend who is the founder of the two hottest nightclubs in all of Liberty City. Hercules (a gay club) and Maisonette 9 (the straight club). This is Tony's story viewed through and played through Tony's bodyguard and business partner's perspective, 25-year-old Luis Fernando Lopez. It's Luis who must make sure that Tony's life doesn't come crashing down due to his excessive drug and alcohol abuse and his struggles financially that could cause his clubs to go bankrupt. The only question is, will Luis be able to handle it or could the partying be done for good? While this story may not be quite as filling as the main game's one, it is still filled with lots of fun mainly because in one mission, you might be blowing up boats whereas in the next you might go assassinate some enemies and then escape using the parachute on your back. Things like that and so much more make this game an absolute must-have! Expand

El mejor juego de Grand Theft Auto en las consolas de la generación actual. Expand
