    Hello rockstar.I've got a question to ask you:

    Hello rockstar.I've got a question to ask you: What does GTA IV have more than crysis that makes it not to reach the same frame rate my and others' PCs reach on high settings? Is that only a subtle mistake you've made ... Read Full Review

  • Review Score:6.5

    It is actually better than GTA IV in aspect of story .

    The story line is better than that of the original GTA IV but it's to short . Most of the missions can be passed with a normal 9mm gun , you don't actually use guns to often and it's more like watching the story behind... Read Full Review

    The Ballad of Gay Tony is the game Grand Theft Auto IV should have been.

    The second and final piece of DLC is, slightly deceptively I might add, named The Ballad of Gay Tony. Despite its name, the game is brimming with Hollywood machismo, running the gamut from overblown explosions to gratuit... Read Full Review

    coolllllllllllllllllllllllllll

    The GTA IV saga closes out with The Ballad of Gay Tony, an over-the-top, explosive $20 downloadable episode. Like the first episode, The Lost and Damned, you'll need a copy of GTA IV to play the downloadable version of T... Read Full Review

    I would have easily paid double for this full game sized DLC.

    Twenty six missions, 7 new weapons, a parachute, new helicopters, a tank and so much more, all delivered by this amazing DLC. The Ballad Of Tony isn't a half assed map pack or a short quest pack, in fact I would say it g... Read Full Review

    The Ballad Of Gay Tony is an add on well worth buying.

    Audio: 9/10 Voice acting is great and the new music is awesome, I am a little disapointed that most of the sound effects are recycled. Visuals: 9/10 Same great looking visuals from GTA 4 but they are really starting... Read Full Review

    Luis Fernando Lopez likes the night life. He likes to boogie.

    Grand Theft Auto IV continues with the newest DLC expansion pack: The Ballad of Gay Tony. Like the previous expansion Lost and the Damned, The Ballad of Gay Tony is a spin off of one of GTA IV's many characters, that be... Read Full Review

    This game expands GTA IV to new levels and is just a lot of fun!

    I got this expansion pack for only 800 Microsoft Points(Its on sale for the deal of the week) but even it was its regular price(1600 MS Points) I would still get it because this fantastic add-on is so worth the money! I ... Read Full Review

    Good DLC, but not as much as the critics say.

    In this DLC, you will play as a guy that does some missions for some friends to get some money. Look really interesting huh? In fact, you will try to help your buddies because they are not able to do the job by themselve... Read Full Review

    THE BEST DLC

    The mission are crazy! Luis meets up with the eccentric Yusuf Amir, Ray Bulgarin, goons from the Ancelotti family, even Brucie's big brother Mori, and has to do jobs for them to clear Tony's debt. They range from stealin... Read Full Review
