14 December 2009
Summary: As Luis Lopez, part-time hoodlum and full-time assistant to legendary nightclub impresario Tony Prince (aka "Gay Tony"), players will struggle with the competing loyalties of family and friends, and with the uncertainty about who is real and who is fake in a world in which everyone has a price.

Pros: +Beautiful graphics., +Plenty of new weapons and vehicles., +”The Ballad Of Gay Tony” has a fantastic story., +New multiplayer modes add a bit of replay value to sweeten the whole deal.
Cons: -None of the missions are truly new experiences for series veterans., -A lot more could have been done with the multiplayer content in both cases.
Review: Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City (Microsoft Xbox 360)
20 November 2009
Excerpt: The Grand Theft Auto (GTA) series of games has been the South Park of the video game world. They always push the levels on violence and vulgarity in video games. That is what I love about them. They are mature games made for adults like myself.
Summary: When Grand Theft Auto IV hit shelves back in April of last year it was lauded for its seemingly living cityscapes and thrilling story, which by all accounts featured some of the best writing in video game history.
Summary: I didn't know what to expect when Rockstar Games announced their intent to support Grand Theft Auto IV with two robust expansion packs. Perhaps I'm just cynical, but I didn't know if I should expect a huge adventure, a couple new missions or, worst of all, shiny horse armor.
Excerpt: It's been a year and a half since Rockstar Games unleashed Grand Theft Auto IV on the world, and since then we've seen two downloadable "episodes" released. Each take place in the same exquisitely detailed Liberty City, the same as in GTAIV , and it's hard to argue against it.
