Gametrailers Review for Lost and Damned
High 8's and low 9's, not bad for a $20 DLC. Won't be buying though. Haven't even beaten the original GTA IV yet.
more 9's and 10's :)
GAMETRAILERS GOTY CONTENDERS GTA4 EXPANSION PACK vs RESIDENT EVIL 4.5 who will win in this epic fight of overhyness?
If I had a 360 I'd play it. I have a PS3 so I won't. Not a big loss at all. Plus, Killzone 2 next week! AAAHHHHHH KILLZONE 2!
i don't trust any GTA4 scores. after that 10/10 last year... to how disappointing it actually was. i never could finish the game.
i got it, def worth the 20 bucks. probably not enough for a 60 dollar game since gta multiplayer sucks. but it does stand on it's own as a good gta.
hmm my roomate was playing this a few hrs yesterday , from what I saw it's not really much of a change from GTA4 , gameplay wise.....but I might eventually play it....just to see how those Biker Gang missions are...and the Intro was pretty cool still.. but for those who loved GTA4...buy it...everyone else...ignore....it's still the same boring GTA4 formula
I wonder if it is possibly for PS3 fans to NOT mention a PS3 game in a 360 game thread.
Excellent rating so far. I think it's the highest rated DLC this generation.
An unjustified score for a mediocre game. You'll never catch me with another GTA game unless it's developed exclusively for the ps3.
unless it's developed exclusively for the ps3? feeling left out of the party? ? awwwww
Cry moar into your Doritos bag you still can't play this game
You act as if this is like an actual exclusive game for the 360. It is still expansion pack no matter how much you look at it droid. So have fun forcing yourself into thinking you're having fun on a game expansion that was released a year ago.
weeeeee double post
Meh you bots just don't get it. This DLC is not a full game and besides GTA4 was so bad that i had to trade it in. You really don't get it do you? Imagine if GTA4 had taken advantage of the ps3 and Rockstar built a new engine specifically based around the ps3's architecture, the game would have been massive with the help of blue ray, the cell and the powerful processing capabilities of the ps3. This is the reason why i dislike multiplats in the first place with the exception of fifa and street fighter 4
"So have fun forcing yourself into thinking you're having fun on a game expansion " Too bad I don't have to do that. Seeing as the reviews, sales and new people playing on multiplayer all agree with me that it's awesome. Sorry you can't play it but maybe when they power you off tonight you can dream that it really is on your system.
don't waste your time, Helghast Slayer is a true antixbox. Just Ignore Him. A Troll Can't Be Change.
At least your honest about the crying and whining over GTA now being an Xbox franchise.
I'd like to check out the new weapons more than anything, but I guess Rockstar is content with snubbing a lot of fans. I hope this content is a success, and gets companies away from this $5 for a skin pack crapola.
This dlc is worth the price already 2 hours into the story
The fool game proved once and for all that review sites rate based on money in the pocket. Really makes a gamer sick to see such universal high praise in all categories for a such a subpar game.
yeah, this dlc really sux since its not on PS3
a sony sheep calling someone else an MS sheep. nice. @pumpkin yeah i think hes lonely too
80 bucks to get a game to be enjoyable, pass.
You're a PS3 fanboy you'll pass like it or not....
Just like how rationalism doesn't stand a chance against delusional 360 fanboyism. Fanboyism and Bullsh*t-centric xbot 360 arguments are the word of the world *(rolls eyes, in case you didn't notice my sarcasm). The world is in a bizarre downware spiral!!!
i admit tht gta4 was over hyped but it wasnt tht bad of a game like most ppl say...now most ppl on n4g atleast hate gta4 mainly because the DLC only being on the 360...suckerz!!! now the DLC is just amazing...i have put in atleast 4 hourz into 2day even though i have not really completed the original story!!!!!! for 20 buckz u get more online featurez, more vehiclez, more weaponz, new characterz and tonz more and there another one once again in the future for the 360, mayb even bigger, better and more badass!!!
Jesus Christ, learn to spell. As for GTA4 - Way over-rated. And I won't spend money to get the DLC.
gametrailers gave all Big titles a 9.2 lately .. may be they are afraid of fanboys .. and need PEACE :P Killzone,SFIV,GTA4 DLC.. all 9.2 ? I know SF and Killzone are on different genre and GTA DLC got 9.2 as a DLC not a full game.. but WHY 9.200000?
value. you're getting a lot for $20 new missions, weapons, vehicles, music, multiplayer content, etc.
in my opinion : Killzone2 : deserve atleast 9.5 (epic single player, and addictive multi(beta) .. its 80$ in IRAN right now, you must wait :P ) SFIV : 9.2 is fair.. may be 9 GTAIV DLC : deserve atleast 9.5 as a DLC .. because for 20$ they gave you more.. I said why 9.2 ? thats why I dont trust Game trailers .. they allways gave weird scores ..
The problem Cartesian is what do you judge your reviewing system by? A 7/10 from Edge can easily translate into a 9/10 from any other site. Without context to justify what you consider is "point-worthy" -I have no idea how you even came up with those number. For one thing, I feel that KZ2 doesn't deserve a 9 just because of the lack of features and short-campaign alone, and that's barely touching MP. But you might disagree because you feel that MP will justify the package alone and the Campaign is already well-done. You understand me? Numbers are meaningless without a standard to go by. Ranking games by number alone without a standard is only asking for trouble and pointless arguing.
but I mean if you are a reviewer and you must rate those 3 games.. will you rate all of them 92/100 ?? if so .. it means you have another concern other than game quality or even your own OPINION .. politics? fanboism concern .. :P that was my point..
I could never review all of those games. I lack the qualifications. :( -I would prefer a fighting-enthusiast gamer review games like SFIV, and let FPS-enthusiast gamers review KZ2. I would prefer that both a Casual gamer, a GTA veteran, and a mainstream gamer review the GTAIV DLC so I can get multiple outlooks. It's shameful when reviewers can't professionally rate their games because they fear the public backlash and publisher pressure.
...and it's well worth the $20. I predict MS will make back most of their total investment, off of this episode ALONE; 1.5 - 2 million sold.
sorry sonyrulz.. dont care about MS and sales , they will make money without your concern... and enjoy the amazing DLC you've got .. :)
2,000,000 x 20 = 40,000,000 = almost.
This my friend will start a new standard for future DLCs. Developers can create new games within a game. The Assets, music, engine is there already so create new stories with new characters, weapons, vehicles is the way to go of the future. I am so glad The Lost and the Damned is so worth the wait. This game along with KZ2 and SF4 wil keep me busy this month.
because it wont start any new STANDARD and thats why : 1- nobody (with healthy brain) will make sth like this DLC without 50million dollar (25million for each) .. you mean there will be a dev that make a 12 hour story without any outsider HELP ? its impossible .. and all devs know that with 25 Million you can make a 60$ AAA title game .. not just a 20$ DLC 2-GTA IV sold around 9 or 10 million.. so making DLC with this amount of content and 20$ price tag is right, because it will sell enough to return the investment (Money and time ) so GTAIV DLC wont set any new standard... you already forgot the 50Million dollar. dont you? in my opinoin this DLC is a GEM for 360 users and GTA fans.. but all of you knows you can make so much better FULL games with that amount of money ..
You my friend are so lost and damned. Where did you come up with these insane dollar figures. Yes Microsoft paid for these 2 GTA4 DLCs but you are acting like every DLC will be 25 million. You know the asset and game engine is already there. Developers just need to add new characters, story, weapons and etc..it will probably cost a few millions at the most. When developers see how well the GTA4 DLCs sell, they will jump in line to make more DLC at a fraction of the cost of shipping to retailers, get more profit per unit sold and etc.. It is common sense dude.
burnout:paradise is a better example for DLC.. and I said 12 hour story , it means Voice acting,motion capture for story,art design,level design,scenario..etc cost money .. about burnout : you dont need STORY , so it cost less money .. in gears of war with completed engine : you just need 10million to make an AAA title because you havent ANY STORY .. I said STORY costs.. not 3d models,new weapons,vehicles.. etc
burnout:paradise is a better example for DLC..????What Burnout Paradise is just like very freaking DLC we hve befor GTA4 DLC. Download new cars, items, maybe a few tracks... Just give it up, we know you are in pain that it is only on X360. Hey, at least KZ2 will have map pack DLC in the future for you to play.
trolls dont give a reason when disagree with you.. I didnt even click on disagree button.. I gave you my reasons.. you must say your fact and reasons too..
If you disagree with him, just let him know. Who knows, maybe it will start an educated debate. Too bad that kind of stuff never happens on N4g... Personally, I really loved GTA4 and hope to eventually purchase the dlc. Right now, though, someone is borrowing the game from me and I have other games on my mind. One day I will restart the GTA4 campaign and purchase this.
MS gave RS a 50 million advance on the game. if it doesn't meet expectations RS will have to pay a part of that back! Also it didn't cost 50 million to make. It was more of a block to ps3 price more than anything. all they need to sell is 2.5 million to make the full 50 million back. And no one knows the full extent of the deal. they could have payed for something towards gta5 50 million is more than the cost of most AAA games l'm sure MS has more instore
I know it didnt cost 25 million for DLC.. I meant when someone gave you 25 million then you will put 5 million(for example) to make another 12 hour story ... but without that 25M$ you wont risk your effort just to put DLC on ONE console or even making 12 hour story.. you can just make 2 hour story and make a MP mode and some vehicle and new characters and put a 20$ price tag on it.. my point is GTAVI DLC is the most amazing DLC ever created for a game, but it was just because of MS money and their pressure on Rockstar to make a decent GAME not just a DLC so other devs dont see this as an example of usual DLC, and my OTHER point is you can make a better FULL game with that amount of money.
...OBVIOUSLY didn't play the Shivering Isles for Oblivion.
Microsoft did not pay $50 million for DLC. They LENT Rockstar $50 million for the development on GTA IV AND DLC. They've most likely made more than that back from GTA IV alone. And Rockstar actually payed them back. So they really didn't lose any sort of money.
I'm still pissed I wasted 60+ bucks on the full game.
So what's your point about how that related to the DLC?
If you were suckered into buying poop flavored ice cream, would you pay extra for the piss flavored sprinkles?
Got'cha: the poop-flavored ice-cream was just plain "overkill". In fact.... 2G1C?
I thought I was being nice. o.0? I was rather upset by GTA4, and all the great reviews it got.
I think GTAIV just suffered from the insane amount of hype. So people who were expecting a blow job and cum 30 times, only got a hand job and came once. I've been playing GTAIV again lately, and it's actually much "funner" than the first time I played it. Haven't touched it in like 6 months, so all the hype is already settled and now I have a fresher opinion on the game. And it's actually a "GOOD" game, just not "GREAT"
I can get the same amount of content and more with better game variety by just playing a $15 copy of GTA:SA now thats a game thats a real winner
What Lombax meant was how he wasted $60.00 on the PS3 version of GTA4 because he can't play The Lost and the Damned.
============>> Open zone plz.. /jk
What I am saying is that I payed $60 for a "meh" game. Why would I pay another $20 for more "meh"? I made it 29% into GTA4 before I got over "meh"ed, and the game hasn't been in my console since.
how could you say the DLC is meh if you haven't played it? if just by looking you can tell theses things you should have realized that with gta4
Fan Tastic, you're an idiot. I have both consoles and I can tell you that Sony's online is well below what it should be. But hey, you get what you pay for. Secondly, you sit there an insult a group of people for not owning YOUR console of choice? How old are you? 12? ANYWAY, this is a great GAME...Not just an expansion. They put A LOT of effort into this and it shows. This is what PAID DLC should be from now on. As a fan of hardcore music for the past 21 years having LCHC be the Lost's defacto station (it's on constantly in the Clubhouse and on every Lost biker's radio) makes me ecstatic. I love every single HC band on there...Leeway, Maximum Penalty, Sick of it All, Killing Time, Murphy's Law, and the mighty Sheer Terror (listen to Paul Bearer's speech about "squater's rights")...Good stuff...The only negative is that I can't stand Death Metal and they added a bunch of those tracks to the LCHC station which makes ZERO sense considering that not one is even remotely a hardcore band. Oh well... If you're a fan of GTA IV, and rightfully so, DL this immediately...It's that good.
Ya, until Sony makes you pay 50 bucks a year for cross game chat it will be inferior. Enjoy your #1 game with the amazing online capability of 5 vs 5. All Sony has is 30 vs 30 and soon 128 vs 128, but I guess since I'm not paying for it, it will remain "well below what it should be."
is more better or something. 360 does have 16x16 and frontlines has 52 player support! So 360 can have higher than 16 players just thats its optimum zone. we also have custom soundtracks on everygame. more people playing with mics and we get demos far more often. and a lot of places have been selling live for $30 now. amazon stays at 39
You really don't understand HOW these online services such as LIVE have so many features, do you? 1. Microsoft has to constantly pay for the features to keep them running. They're not cheap! 2. Paying for an online service is another reason why SONY is desperately trying to make some sort of income on theirs (i.e. HOME, ads, etc.) So they can get some ghetto form of one of the features like on LIVE. 3. LIVE is a very expensive service for Microsoft, and there's a bunch of reasons why. For starters, Microsoft has their own servers for all of their games. They're not run independently by the developers. This gives people a greater chance to play online, because the developers don't have to constantly update their servers. The features such as 8-person party chat cost a lot because of how much bandwidth is being used on Microsoft's servers and whatnot. At least, this is what I have been told.
Games on LIVE are not hosted on MS servers, they are peer to peer based like a lot of games on the PSN are however some are hosted and maintained by developers on dedicated servers and are not P2P, Resistence 2 being an example of that...60 player MP which is lag free due to such a feature. LIVE does not have this, it is all peer to peer so you're giving them $50 per year to connect to another person, not to a dedicated server. This is why after my free month of LIVE ends (I bought a 360 little under a month ago) I will not be paying for a gold subscription unless a game comes along that is exclusive to the 360 that I absolutely MUST play online. However things like party chat are probably hosted on MS owned servers which of course have overheads, however with the amount of gold subscribers they have, $50 per account per year will more than cover their overheads I'm sure.
Sony has 32 vs 32? Is that supposed to impress me? There is more to LIVE and PSN and online gaming in general than how many players can be in a room...I'm there for ALL the features and the fact is $50 a year which equals $3.84 a month is an incredibly SMALL price to pay for the features that LIVE has. MS charges for LIVE so they can maintain those features and add new ones. It's actually pretty amazing for very little cost. Like Jet said, there are games that support that much on LIVE. And my "number one game" isn't my number one game. So trying to make a dig at live for a game like Gears of War is pretty dumb. And if you think MAG is going to be able to pull off that size of a room without lag, game drops and such, you're delusional. Sorry you didn't like GTA IV...I did, a lot. And I'm enjoying the hell out of Lost and Damned on my 360. Should tide me over until next week when I get Killzone 2.
But do you have dedicated servers? You think your few extra features like cross game chat, invites, soundtracks makes psn inferior? Me might not have dedicated servers for all games, but there's a lot and this feature blows any bell or whistle xbl has to offer. I'm very happy playing games with very little lag for free. Are you happy with laggy p2p online gaming that costs you money? I sincerely doubt you've played on both systems for a decent amount of time to make an informed, unbiased, un-fanboy opinion.
does have dedicated servers too
