GTA The Ballad of Gay Tony Review

 

Apparently, it's not so gay. And by gay I mean bad because it is very homo.

Keeping with just to story missions will keep you occupied a good 8-10 hours with plenty of action on the side to make GTA The Ballad of Gay Tony well worth the price of $20. While not a lot of new changes to gameplay as the Lost and the Damned,...

Grand Theft Auto IV: The Ballad of Gay Tony

 

The Ballad of Gay Tony marks the second and final episode of Liberty City, behind The Lost and Damned. It's a bittersweet moment to be sure. On the one hand, I can't wait to see where Rockstar North takes the franchise next. On the other hand, it will...

The Ballad of Gay Tony sends Liberty City off with a bang. Even though I didn't enjoy it as much as The Lost and Damned, or the original Grand Theft Auto IV for that matter, I still highly recommend it. Why? Value. Nobody makes DLC like the team at...

The Ballad of Gay Tony - Slightly Different than The Ballad of John and Yoko

Good story and great characters, GTA action

Irritating controls and the usual maddening GTA missions

I?ve always been fond of GTA for the story, as ludicrous as it may be, because it closely resembles all the great combat and intrigue of a summer blockbuster. What's different about this is that, while full of gun porn and explosions, there's a complex...

Oh, and for those of you who are wondering: unlike TLAD, the amount of free-swinging wang is dramatically reduced. This may or may not be good news, depending on your CGI wang preferences

The Ballad of Gay Tony completes the trilogy with a focus on Liberty City's nightlife. The Ballad of Gay Tony deals with the over-the-top nature of life at the center of the city, on the other side of the velvet rope where everyone and everything is...

Strange as it sounds but a lot of people preferred Saints Row 2 for just how zany and outlandish it was and I for one was one of them. For the next GTA, it would be really a wise choice to go back to that crazy action and mayhem fans loved the series...

Grand Theft Auto: The Ballad of Gay Tony

 

You would think that with all of the crime, crooked cops, loudmouth politicians, immoral activities and road rage, I would have had my fill of Liberty City and moved elsewhere. But when Rockstar Games' newest (and possibly final) Grand Theft Auto IV...

The Ballad of Gay Tony is not only an over-the-top action game with tons of great missions, it's also the perfect way to conclude the Grand Theft Auto IV storyline. If you had a good time playing through Niko's storyline, then you owe it to yourself to...

Grand Theft Auto IV: The Ballad of Gay Tony review for the XBOX360

 

Queer eve for the gangster guy.

Lengthy, awesome story; Charismatic new characters, Tony especially; Doesn't take itself seriously; Terrific voice-acting and dialogue; Explosive shotgun shells are my new BFF; Parachuting/base-jumping is a blast; Side missions and post-story content

More helicopter missions, for better or worse; Helicopter controls are really plain awful; Under-developed story for Luis and family

Grand Theft Auto IV is a game about the American Dream. While Niko's story took him from rags to unfulfilled riches and The Lost and Damned's Johnny bore the ruination of his violent brotherhood and lifestyle, The Ballad of Gay Tony explores financial...

The Ballad of Gay Tony is more than just a bargain expansion: it's the single best game add-on available on Xbox Live. In fact, baring any huge surprises in the next two months, it's the best 360 exclusive of 2009

You'll have a gay old time with this superb piece of DLC.

Excellent writing; tons of stuff to do after campaign; memorable, hilarious characters; parachuting is a blast

Club activities get old fast; helicopter controls troublesome; if you don't like GTA4 you won't like this
