Product 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?

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.

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.

Each episode of this pack was originally marketed as downloadable content for GTA IV, but having finished both, it's clear that this pack offers way more value than any Call of Duty or Killzone map pack or similar DLC.

First off, you can expect to get about 10 hours of gameplay out of each episode, with a decent number of story missions and plenty of side missions to keep you busy. So on the value front, Episodes From Liberty City is very impressive.

Although some of the visuals are quite impressive, particularly weather effects, the original GTA IV sparkle has started to wear off a bit and the game engine is showing its age - character models are a little basic and rigid at times - but GTA has always been known for its irreverent humour and over-the-top gameplay, and this is where the game shines. A whole host of new vehicles and some crazy weapons have been added, and the radio dialogue and soundtrack has been updated, so any fears that Rockstar were sitting on their laurels and releasing a half-baked mission pack were quickly dispelled after I played the first few hours.

As for storyline, the two episodes offer a very different perspective on Liberty City and interweave nicely, with glimpses of the Bellic brothers and Brucie from the original game creating a sense that the story has been well thought out, as opposed to merely tacked on to the GTA IV experience. In fact, the gulf between the down-and-out lifestyle of the biker gangs in The Lost and Damned and the glitzy hedonism of The Ballad of Gay Tony helps create a sense that this is a real, living city, with a believably diverse set of characters.
