1UP: Grand Theft Auto 4 The Ballad of Gay Tony Review

1UP writes:

"After playing through Grand Theft Auto IV, The Lost and Damned, and now The Ballad of Gay Tony, there isn't a whole lot more I can see or do in Liberty City on the Xbox 360. I'm spent, but at the same time I can't wait to see what the inevitable "Grand Theft Auto V" will bring. With The Ballad of Gay Tony complete and available for download over LIVE (or in the Episodes from Liberty City bundle pack that includes both The Lost and Gay Tony) GTA IV's final expansion sends itself off in style in some of the most ridiculous ways possible; I think that's why I like it so much."

The story is too old to be commented.

Gay Tony is getting great revies from everywhere so far, can't wait to play it ill be getting in on the disc because i dont have first DLC yet. It seemed stupid and i didnt like the overall biker theme, i guess i wil play it now. This story looks promising.
Good to have both consoles :).

I really Like GTA4.

If I buy the Liberty stories the game will be even bigger for me because I havent finished the original yet.

found GTA IV overrated.
I put down GTA IV to finish up Mass Effect and Crackdown.. I dunt know, but it just didnt do it for me.

Hopefully things will feel fresh when GTA V comes out =/
btw, I should rent liberty cities and try the DLC out... it might be better then the game itself lol

You aren't alone. GTA4 bored me to death. I dont know what happened, game is just not fun. It took itself to seriously pretending to be a "crime simulator". WTH? Any law infringement meant a relentless pursuit with the consequent loss of time. I dont know why but in NFS:MW a pursuit meant fun but in GTA4 was just a fVck!ng waste of time. I hated that, as I hate hanging out with friends or the new gears-like combat, boring as hell. Bring back the over the shoulder view, it was always fun and frantic.

Yeah. I loved San Andreas and other ones. Rockstar shouldnt have changed the formula so much. I hated the cover system, it was a cheap rip off a GeOW cover system and it didnt work too well imo.
I know there are alot of GTA fanboys here, so my opinion might them hurt as they read 'YOU SUCK' instead of reading the criticism about GTA.

You like GTA:IV and yet you haven't even finished it yet ?

Something is wrong here.

another AAA for the 360 for 2009.

And Sonyfans trying to say the 360 had no games for 2009... silly little kids.

So for all those silly little kids that care... according to Metacritic:
(games rated 90% or higher)

Xbox - 24 AAA games
PS3 - 14 AAA games
