"At this point, there's a good chance that you know if you're in the target audience for The Ballad of Gay Tony. If you wrote off Grand Theft Auto IV before finishing "Three Leaf Clover," there's a chance that you might overlook Rockstar North's final effort in the Liberty City story arc. And that would be a shame. Although I found The Lost & Damned to be a more unsavory experience than GTA4, Gay Tony fires on all cylinders and delivers both solid storytelling and the same sort of over-the-top mayhem found in the best moments of GTA: San Andreas. It's arguably the finest episodic content found in a console game this year."
