GTA IV: The Lost and Damned: Reviewed (Xbox 360 DLC)
7 September 2013
Excerpt: Rockstar’s new DLC for GTA IV was always going to be something special. It had to be more than the usual new vehicle or weapon pack to make up for the almost twelve month wait and in typical precedent defying style Rockstar have effectively made the long awaited DLC for GTA IV a whole new GTA game.
Conclusion: For all those PlayStation 3 owners who shrugged at the lack of extra GTA IV content on their console, it’s hard not to feel a tinge of jealousy from missing out on this one. What Rockstar has managed is an unprecedented feat of downloadable excellence, as this is one of the finest and tightly produced adventures to take place in the big city.

Excerpt: When Microsoft first announced its exclusive deal with Rockstar Games, all the way back at E3 2006, nobody was quite sure what that meant for gamers. We were quickly assured this wouldn’t be your standard 'extra few weapons and cars' DLC, instead it would feature entirely new gameplay. After a delay or two, and almost a year after the release of the main game, the Lost and Damned finally released on XBL, and changed our perceptions of what DLC really was.
Excerpt: For the most part, the Grand Theft Auto series has built its reputation on offering a "living, breathing" world where the possibilities for interaction and decision-making have been described as endless and unrestricted. Dan Wiessenberger's review of Grand Theft Auto IV thankfully does not spout this rhetoric ad nauseum.
Conclusion: The other best thing about TLaD is that R* figured out how stupid the original game was and toned down the bullshit. I don’t have to date girls anymore, and nobody calls me to ask me if I want to play darts, heartbroken when I say “no, I’m fucking sick of playing darts with you Brucie, I just want to murder old ladies with a helicopter and start fires in a gas station.” I was so sick of seeing the little notification that I had lost a certain percentage of friendship...
Excerpt: The first of two episodic downloads for Grand Theft Auto IV , the title many regard to be the quintessential crime-sim, The Lost and the Damned was always going to have a lot to live up to when compared to its bigger brother. Thankfully, Rockstar North have again, done the unthinkable and produced what is the most polished and generous expansion pack for a console game yet.
