Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City Review

Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City consists of two games: Grand Theft Auto IV: The Lost and Damned, and Grand Theft Auto IV :The Ballad of Gay Tony. You are able to download these two games (1600 Microsoft Points each), but you need the normal GTA to play this. However you can buy these two games on ONE disc, which you don't need the normal GTA for. Now, lets get on with the game!

In The Lost and Damned, experience Liberty City as Johnny, a veteran member of The Lost, a notorious biker gang. Johnny has been creating business opportunities for The Lost in Liberty City, but his first loyalty must be to the patch on his back and to Billy Grey, the club's president. However, when Billy returns from rehab, hell-bent on bloodshed and debauchery, Johnny finds himself in the middle of a vicious turf war with rival gangs for control of a city torn apart by violence and corruption.

The Ballad of Gay Tony injects Liberty City with an overdose of guns, glitz and grime. As Luis Lopez, part-time hoodlum and full time assistant to legendary nightclub impresario Tony Prince (a.k.a. "Gay Tony"), players will struggle with the competing loyalties of family and friends, and with the uncertainty about who is real and who is fake in a world where everyone has a price.

The controls for these two games are very simple: Right Trigger to shoot, Left Trigger to aim, and so on.
Aswell as doing missions for Tony, Yusuf, Billy, Jim and the other characters, there is plenty to do in Liberty City, like play golf in the driving range, manage the Maisonette9 (TBOGT), go arm wrestling (TLAD), or get a private dance in the gentlemen's club. I can honestly say, you may never get bored of this game!

In both The Lost And Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony, you can play online with up to 15 other people! You can do 8 man co-op online aswell as fight other people online. There are many different online modes like Team Deathmatch, Deathmatch and Free Mode.
