GTA IV: The Lost & Damned IGN UK Review

Some 30 whole minutes in, The Lost and Damned dishes out its first achievement – 'One Percenter', an acknowledgement that a single percent of the game has been completed. Claims of Rockstar's DLC offering a 12 hour campaign really aren't far off the mark – this is a substantial expansion that pushes the boundaries of what's been achieved with downloadable content on Xbox Live to date.

Yeah. Pretty good score. Personally, I'm giving it a pass. Didn't care much for GTA4 in the first place, so I doubt the DLC will make me pick it back up in favor of newer games. After all, I have Halo Wars and Killzone 2 to play this month. GTA4 is old hat. :P

Masta_fro3535d ago

they gave it an 8.6...which is about a 5 in my book. why you ask?

Because GTA4 sucked A$$ and they gave that a 10. Wudduya think this translates too...

Aquanox3535d ago

Excellent score for an expansion. This + Halo Wars + Star Ocean + SFIV + RE5 (The best version of it :P ) will have me extremely busy this Quarter.

iHEARTboobs3535d ago

It's been getting good reviews. Makes me want to go back and play GTA4 and try to finish it (i'm at the 35% mark). Anyhow, i hated the bikes in the game. The choppers weren't that bad but the damn crotch rockets were annoying. They should've had hotrod gangs and stuff like that.

burbulla3535d ago

I think the score was given keeping in mind that this is a DLC. Anyways, yeah good content coming to the Xbox in the first quarter, but what makes you think that the better version of RE5 is coming to the 360?

FRoZENiViAN3535d ago

this was a great idea having the biker gang.
When I first heard about it. I thought of sons of anarchy and being jax, which if you have not seen the series it is on xbox live video market place for download. Jax is also the VP in the biker gang. This download is going to be better than the game.

Big score for M$ with this download. this download was the reason I bought it on xbox 360 and it is surely going to pay off.

You have to say that any fan of gta is dyeing to play this, whether your a ps3 fan or not.

Danja3535d ago

I didn't really enjoy GTA4 that much I only got to around 40% completed then I stopped playing the main game.

The online was fun for awhile I still play GTA Race occasionally but on rare occasions.

prowiew3535d ago

Strangely im more exited about this expansion than GTA4 itself. I think because it is shorter and I like the theme more in the expansion.

SL1M DADDY3535d ago

Aquanox is a 360 fanboy and only says things like that to stir up trouble. Having played both demos of RE5, I have to say that Capcom outdid themselves in making both versions identical. Fanboys are just ignorant.

Anon19743534d ago

That being said, I had the choice of picking this up on my PS3 or 360 and choose the PS3 version, knowing full well I'd miss out on content like this. There are so many great games that I simply don't have time to play - extending a game I've already played to death doesn't really appeal to me that much. And true enough, the expansion pack is here and I'm already long done with GTA4. Having gone through 3 360's and my 4th unit being older than the unit it replaced, with no warranty anymore - I just don't want to take a risk spending hundreds in games only to have my console die in a week if I don't have to. I'm sticking to using my 360 only for exclusives until it finally dies for the last time. And with the pending lineup it looks like Alan Wake will probably be the last game I buy for it - maybe the Halo expansion if it's not too much.

TheColbertinator3535d ago

Oh god David,not you too.I know your a PS3 fan but I did not think you were the kind of guy that insults me for having a 360.

Looks like gamers such as myself are a dying species on n4g.

GiantEnemyLobster3535d ago

They just see this news article and are still angry about it not being on the PS3, so they have to justify it by arguing about how much they hate the 360 to make themselves feel better. The mindset of the PStard is the same as a chimpanzee.

GiantEnemyCrab3535d ago

Steven, I enjoyed GTA IV a lot and even more than San Andreas. The DLC has also got my attention.

Don't worry about the haters, listen to the Lobster I think he is on to something. =)

Obama3535d ago

I agree with Steven that gta4 is a borefest, but for 20 bucks I guess it's fine to the minority who really likes the game.

if I were a 360 owner I wouldn't get this dlc that's for sure.

YouNoob3535d ago

PLEASE, do not insult chimpanzees, THEY are pretty intelligent creatures.

Decent score for an expansion....

I wonder what scores Halo 3 expansion will get.

ChampIDC3535d ago

It definitely gives me hope that other expansions on consoles can actually be alright.
