Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City, is the latest expansion pack for the popular Rockstar game, containing The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony. Both episodes do not require the original Grand Theft Auto IV nor is an Xbox Live account necessary (except for multiplayer).
Grand Theft Auto: Episodes From Liberty City is an interesting offering from Rockstar, for the Xbox 360 console. It is essentially a collection of the two GTA IV download content (DLCs) that are exclusive to the Microsoft platform.
These are not mere expansion packs; each contains tons of animated cut-scenes that add to the deep and epic storylines of the criminal underworld in Liberty City — along with enough game content to fill your weekends of straight playing.
Each game has roughly one quarter of the story missions of GTA IV, give or take a few — although, as GTA vets would expect, there’s plenty more to do in each game even after the story missions are done.
The graphics, gameplay and music are pretty much the same as GTA IV, before we move on to the really important bits, here’s what inside the box.
Our review copy is for Xbox 360 console, and from the cover, it states “Two Complete Games – The Lost and Damned & The Ballad of Gay Tony”.
Inside the box are the game discs, Liberty City map, 48 hours Xbox Live Trial Gold membership, and Liberty City Underground anniversary issue.
