Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City let you try the other stories that were DLC for Grand Theft Auto IV as a standalone game. But the problem is, the port is still bad and needs a fix, but Rockstar seems to be ignoring that. You could go to mods to help you, but is bad that the developers abandoned the game for the pc in this state. Other than that bad thing, the rest is gold, The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony still are some of my favorite stories in the Grand Theft Auto franchise ever. Recommended. But search how to fix the game first.
The DLC for Grand Theft Auto 4 comes with two games actually, one telling the story of Johnny who is a member of the biker gang the Lost. The other about Luis who is the full-time assistant to Tonk Prince, or Gay Tony as he is known. Both stories are very fun to play through, but the Grand Theft Auto 4 system is extremely broken thanks to Games for Windows Live ending their service and the lack of support for this game by the developers. So if you actually get the game working with the various workarounds, goos luck getting the saves to actual work right. PROS -Two games in one with great stories. -Open world game play. CONS -Games for Windows Live service ended years ago with no patch to fix it. -OpenIV forced to shutdown making the future of modding in Grand Theft Auto 4 bleak. -Hard to get saves to work right. Not worth the money until the problems plaguing this game are addressed by the developers, which isn?t very likely.
It's sad having to give this game such a low score as I really did enjoy it, but the same problems listed off in my review for the core game stands true for this one as well. Being a great game doesn't save it from itself when the company that released it hasn't bothered removing Games for Windows Live from it after so long. If only they would, then this game would be an easy 4 stars and most likely 5 stars.
It's funny how rockstar can program games so casually, that are way better then anyone else's. For exemple, how many biker games are there? I mean, biker gang games? And how many of them are good? The only one i can thik of is the lost and the damned, which is right here. It has the great graphics and gameplay of GTA 4, and an awesome story, that will keep you entrertained at least for a week! You have to manage your club, fight against other gangs, and enjoy a tighter story, while at the same time, you still have the freedom of the GTA games. The Ballad of Gay tony on the other hand is just gTA 4, only better. Here, you don't have to go dates with people, and babysit your cousin, just do merc stuff, and enjoy the somewhat over the top story, and the Great Liberty city. GTA 4 isn't required for this pack, but the former is better for mods, so if you can, buy the full pack, that contains both, it's way cheaper that way.
Grand Theft Auto 4 wasn't a bad game at all. It was solid, just not as good as previous ones. Those DLC, though, make it worth it. Both of them are excellent, with strong writing, fun characters as far as the series goes and missions are awesome. Both of them almost feel like a great return to what made this series great and takes hint or two from Vice City or San Andreas. This package is absolutely worth it if you loved previous GTA games, even if you didn't like 4 it's a great pick. It can take around 20-30 hours to complete both of them and for this price it is a must. Recommended.
