Giant Bomb: Grand Theft Auto IV: The Ballad of Gay Tony Review

A year and a half might not seem like much in the grand scheme of things, but in the tech-driven world of video games, it's enough to make a once-innovative game feel tired and clunky. Such is the case with The Ballad of Gay Tony, the second episode Rockstar North has released on the Xbox 360 for Grand Theft Auto IV, which continues to rely on that game's rapidly aging framework. But time isn't the only thing working against Gay Tony, as there's also an issue of quality. It's got all of the parts you'd need for the kind of hyperbolic criminal action experience GTA fans have come to expect, but there's a certain carelessness to the execution

the first to post in BOTH zones... if you weren't bitter you wouldn't be trying so hard.

lets admit... it was suppose to do wonders for 360 with exclusive TWO DLCs. but sadly GTAIV turned out to be a crap to begin with. thus, no wonder, only 1/6th of the people bought the first DLC out of the 6+ millions 360 GTAIV owners.

Thank you MS. for funding the PS3 exclusive games.

Woah, I expected at least 4/5 before coming into this story, and I actually trust Giant Bomb. I wasn't going to buy the game even if it got 5/5 though, so the score doesn't matter to me, but it was a bit of a shock.

I agree with Cold, this review seems off. The score is off and the review its a ranting about the personages, the story and a bit about the graphics. I guess those guys are spoiled by UC2. I didnt read any serious complaint about the gameplay or game length.

"GTAIV turned out to be a crap"

Is that why it got so many perfect scores, stop talking nonsense. And people that worship san andreas saying its the best GTA ever, you know you can still go back and play it right? R* didnt take away your copy of SA when they released GTA4.

Can't be any worse than Pinnacle Station on Mass Effect... >.>

^^^^^ Whatever turd for brains, guess what? I have both systems and I thought Uncharted 2 was overrated crap. I sold it towards L4D2 and have zero regrets so you enjoy platforming over and over and then watching the same cutscene. Co op is the one saving grace of that trash.

It's actually really good, any fan of the franchise would enjoy it.


Ya, I agree..

I don't agree with many points on this review. They have their opinion and I have mine.

anyway, I am loving it and the best bit of download out there.

I haven't gotten a chance to play it yet, but this review seems harsh. Giant Bomb is the only site I pay much attention to when it comes to reveiws, but looks like I'll probably disagree with this one.

talltony3367d ago

Wish I didnt but I did. I just felt lost and damned was better. I didnt really like this episode. The night club dancing was funny though.
