GamesRadar: The Ballad of Gay Tony Review

With the release of its second (and probably last) downloadable episode, the story begun in Grand Theft Auto IV is finally complete. So far, we've seen the immigrant-disillusionment story of Niko Bellic and the sad bikers-in-decline tale of The Lost and Damned, each more gritty and depressing than the last. The Ballad of Gay Tony, meanwhile, ends the series on a relative high note, delving into Liberty City's neon-drenched nightclub scene and the lives of its ultra-rich celebrities and power players. It's bigger than Lost and Damned, more upbeat than GTA IV and delivers the fast cars, awesome weapons and over-the-top side activities that many fans had hoped to see after GTA: San Andreas.

So.. DLC is the 360's "AAA" lineup? so without DLC from a old game.. that leaves...

Do you want tissues with that ?

Very good. And to people who say this is rubbish because its DLC. Its longer than most PS2 games and cheaper than they were when they came out.

And its longer than a lot of 360/PS3/Wii games as well.

"Thankfully, players will seemingly easily be able to update their game to the new version easily by simply installing "

What the fuck kind of sentence structure is that?!

GTA4 was the worst game in the entire series and the only one I've ever truly hated

SegaSaturn6691609d ago

I really liked the tv stations on gta 4. Other than that, I agree. Horrible racing missions.

I guess they can’t afford editors.

They'll never get rid of how slow and sluggish these games feel. Your character and vehicles feel too heavy. Even on the most powerful rigs. I love how GTAV fixed it though.

Profchaos1609d ago (Edited 1609d ago )

Your character was a mid 30/40 year old personally I felt like he controlled the way most people in that age range move.
And it had better driving physics than v did cars have weight and it felt correct compared to v everything drives like a sports car and turns corners on a dime

DerfDerf1609d ago

The driving physics in GTA4 were far superior to 5. Everyone complains because of the physics engine used but it's one of the things I love about 4

Looking back to 2009 and the action packed Grand Theft Auto: The Ballad of Gay Tony

One of the very rare cases where DLC was done right. This is what DLC should have been, a proper expansion pack, not what it has become today.

PowerOfTheCloud1718d ago

Right, the dlc's were better than the actual game imo

chrisx1719d ago
