Product Description

Take-Two Interactive Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City (PS3)

Manufacturer's Description

Grand Theft Auto: Episodes From Liberty City is the brand-new Grand Theft Auto, containing two complete games - The Ballad Of Gay Tony and The Lost And Damned - together in one box!

The Ballad Of Gay Tony:

The Ballad Of Gay Tony injects Liberty City with an overdose of guns, glitz, and grime. 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.

The Lost And Damned:

In The Lost And Damned, experience Liberty City as Johnny, a veteran member of The Lost, a notorious biker gang. Johnny has been creating business opportunities for The Lost in Liberty City but his first loyalty must be to the patch he wears on his back and to Billy Grey, the club's President. However, when Billy returns from rehab hell-bent on bloodshed and debauchery, Johnny finds himself in the middle of a vicious turf war with rival gangs for control of a city torn apart by violence and corruption. Can the brotherhood survive?

5.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent GTA 17 April 2010
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Quite how it's taken so long for this to be released on PS3, I cannot understand, but after the long wait, you won't be left disappointed.

Although the game plays exactly like GTAIV (there was never going to be a major upheaval on this front), there are enough additions to make the two included games feel new. Plenty of new, more fun weapons (grenade launcher anyone?), and a sprinkling of new vehicles around the streets.

Liberty City is opened up completely from the start, and a lot of the weapons you may have taken several days to earn in GTAIV are available within half an hour of playing this one. But that's a good thing; I imagine most gamers buying this will have completed GTAIV, so there is no need to go through the same process of slowly earning better weapons as you progress.

If you're like me and you love the radio stations on GTA games, you'd be pleased to hear a totally new radio soundtrack to complement the game. My favourite by a country mile would be Vice City FM - being an 80s music fan, I am of the opinion that Vice City had the greatest soundtrack to a game ever. Fernando Martinez hosts, and hearing an excellent selection of not-so-obvious 80s tracks playing in Liberty City just brings back a little bit of that "Vice City feeling" when playing this one.

The Episodes are notably shorter than GTA, with around 25 main story missions each. Looking on the bright side of this, you won't end up with the ridiculous unspendable amounts of money Niko had in GTAIV, which I suppose makes money a little more valuable.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Welcome Return to Liberty City 28 April 2010
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
GTA: Episodes from Liberty City is, as you probably are aware, 2 separate games set in Liberty City, the bustling metropolis where we first met Niko Bellic from GTA IV. I call them games, rather than episodes, because even though they are set in Liberty City, as the Lost and Damned takes at least 9 hours to complete (not inluding all the side missions) and the Ballad of Gay Tony even longer, these episodes are full of more gameplay than some full price releases. The fact this was released with an RRP of £29.99 (and can be found even cheaper) makes this release even more appealing.

So, what of the games then? Well, if you know GTA IV you know what to expect, but both games have their own treats in store for you. I won't go into too much detail as I'm sure most people looking to buy this game are fully aware of the basic outline of the episodes, but I will try and explain why this is (for me) a worthwhile purchase.

Firstly we have the Lost and Damned, which centres on a lovely chap named Johnny Klebitz. He's in a motorcycle gang (The Lost) and his story slightly intertwines with those of Niko and also Luis from TBOGT (more on that later). The major difference with TLAD is that you will be riding bikes throughout (you can drive cars, but generally you'll have your bikes). The good news is that Johnny's bikes handle like GTA IV cars, they're quick, mobile and chances are you won't be falling off! A nice touch is the motorcycle race side missions, where you can attack fellow riders with a bat to gain an advantage over them. In missions you will also have the opportunity to get back up from your 'brothers' and there are cheap weapons and free bikes that are easily obtainable from your contacts.

5.0 out of 5 stars GTA IV+ 16 April 2010
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought the PS3 hoping for a great version of GTA, and when GTA IV was released, I was not disappointed.

This addition to the franchise is a superb step in the right direction. GTA IV is given several nods within the first few minutes, which made me smile lots.

The Liberty City map was never fully utilised, in my opinion, in the original game - and already I can see that Liberty City Stories extends the use of this virtual playground. Add this to having the same controls as before (minus the dancing skills!) and it's like you're back at the beginning of your favourite game, but with 2 complete and seperate stories to explore.

I'm hoping that the guys and girls at Rockstar are working hard on a release date for GTA V, because I'm guessing that I'll have finished this great game soon!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Get This Again! 9 Jan. 2015
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
I am a big GTA and Rockstar fan but this was one of the few titles that I actually had sitting in my collection which I never got around to playing until recently. Unfortunately time has not been kind to either episode included in this pack and after playing the amazing GTA V it was quite difficult to not compare the two which is quite unfair.

However, what you do get with Rockstar is great storytelling, engaging gameplay and a level of quality that is lacking from a lot of developers these days.

I played The Lost and Damned episode first and this was a fairly interesting affair as it continued the dark and gritty feel of the main game while adding to it with the main characters freshness and being more focussed on the motorbike aspect of the game. As with the other episode the story was cleverly intertwined with the main GTA IV story and resulted in the odd cameo by Niko and other characters. In terms of actual gameplay both titles offer more of the same of what you are used to if you have ever played a GTA title, lots of violence and anti-social behaviour!

The Ballad of Gay Tony is a lot lighter and aims for a more fun approach to its general madness with its crazy characters and missions, dare I say it seems more like a Saints Row game than GTA.
Both titles even though quite short in GTA terms and the maps don’t have much in the way of side missions or activities to do, are however very entertaining and offer value for money for a budget title.

The only negatives are my usual gripes with GTA in terms of flying missions which seem to have been designed with the sole purpose of frustrating the player and some of the auto aiming is so bad it will make you want to hurl your controller at the nearest wall (quick hint avoid targeting and shooting when you are on stairs!).
