If you're a fan of Grand Theft Auto IV and want to know how the story ends, then you have no excuse not to pick up Episodes from Liberty City. This is a budget title that adds two new stories, tons of memorable characters, more weapons and enough online modes to keep you satisfied for months to come. Best of all, these games do the impossible - they make Liberty City feel fresh and brand new again!

Overall, Episodes from Liberty City is one heck of a package containing two amazing and action packed games for only $39.99 MSRP. You can’t go wrong here.

If you have missed out on either of these exceptional expansions now is the time to act. Both could be passed as full retail games and for the low price of $40 for both it is a steal. Episodes from Liberty City is the perfect stocking stuffer for your favorite GTA fan this holiday season.

Simply put, Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City is one of the most impressive bundles to hit the Xbox 360. You simply can’t beat two very different and amazing stories that, packed together, make for a deeply rewarding gaming experience. Even if you don’t own GTA IV, this is the package you should definitely be playing.

Grand Theft Auto: Episodes From Liberty City rounds out the Grand Theft Auto IV package quite nicely. It offers most everything you'd want to find in a GTA game, from intriguing characters to biting satire; from well-polished single player missions to fantastic multiplayer design. It would appear that it is time to close the book on Grand Theft Auto IV, but Episodes From Liberty City is a remarkably satisfying sendoff that will leave fans in anticipation on where the series will go next. Well done, Rockstar. Here's to the future!

What can one say about “Episodes from Liberty City”? Well, at first I thought this was just another way to cash in on the DLC-mania that these next-gen consoles suffer from but really, at the price-point of about half a 360 game, you get 20 hours of storyline and enough content to keep you busy for days. Add the fact that the multiplayer from the first add-on is actually better than the original and you can’t conclude anything else than this being a great title. If you didn’t already download the episodes or don’t even own the original GTA IV then this is a true must-have title in your collection. You can even score both GTA IV and this title for about 50 Euro so what are you still doing here reading?

At the end of the day, this is easily the most fun we've had since GTA III and although Niko Bellic was a little lackluster as the central character, Lopez provides that carefree attitude who will be more relatable to the broader audience. Even our biker is fun to play and we must commend Rockstar for putting both these episodes on one disc. The humour in both episodes are worth every penny and if you're a fan of this series or thinking to pick the series up, than we would happily recommend this game and best of all it links to everything that came before it!

GTA: Episodes from Liberty City is an amazing offering, featuring two of the best pieces of downloadable content ever released on Xbox 360. There's more than 20 hours of gameplay to be had here, just on the single-player missions alone. There are also tons of side quests and distractions as well as multiplayer. It would have been great if this package also included the full retail version of GTA IV to serve as a complete collection of the game, but this is still pretty damn good.

Worth Playing
For the price you pay in comparison to the amount of gaming you get from the title, you end up getting a better bargain than most games on the market, downloadable or retail. Fans of open-world gaming would be foolish not to pick this up if they haven't already downloaded it. Even if you only had a passing interest in the series, this is a recommended purchase because of the completely different vibes that it has in comparison to its predecessors and imitators.

The Lost and the Damned drags you down to Liberty City's seedy underbelly and then The Ballad of Gay Tony recolors the world with flash and style. It's a great compilation, and the additions to both the narrative and the mechanics do well to compliment the aging Grand Theft Auto IV. The gameplay may not be as fresh as it was in 2008 and most of GTA IV's love it or hate it quirks are still firmly in place, but if you love the series (as many of you do), it’s hard to be dissatisfied with this package.

If the last thing you saw in the GTAIV universe was the ending of Niko Bellic's story, Episodes from Liberty City is made for you. If you're still playing GTAIV you might want to wait until you've beaten that game, and if you've already downloaded one episode it'd obviously be more cost-effective for you to just download the other. Episodes from Liberty City might not be the best way for you to experience these downloadable episodes, but do make sure you experience them.

Despite my complaints about the storyline in Gay Tony, the game itself is still great, and that's only half of this $40 package - if you also haven't played The Lost and Damned, then Episodes from Liberty City is pretty much a must-have if you are a fan of the series. The on-disc exclusives aren't enough to make this worth buying if you already own The Lost and Damned, so if you do, then you should still pick up Gay Tony for $20 on the Live Marketplace. But either way, if you still find yourself popping in these games just to have fun and wreak havoc, then it's difficult to go wrong with Gay Tony.

As a gameplay package Episodes from Liberty City offers literally over 20 hours of a superb GTA experience for a budget price. It has been put together to save people the trouble of making room on the ridiculously expensive Xbox 360 hard drives - however thanks to poor optimisation it might be the kind of title you install to your HDD. You only need to parachute and crater into a billboard which only existed after you died once before you come to this conclusion. If you traded in your copy of GTA IV or you are indeed rocking a smaller hard drive, absolutely get Episodes from Liberty City. Otherwise, maybe pick up Ballad on the Xbox Live Marketplace.

Eine Kombipackung Biker- und High-Society-Gangster-Spaß, ohne GTA 4 lauffähig, mit viel Liebe gemacht und auch sehr umfangreich: Anderthalb Jahre nach dem Erscheinen des Hauptprogramms weckt Episodes nochmal die alte Lust am Versinken in einer ausgefeilten Spielwelt. Wer Lost and Damned schon hat oder wer sich nur für eine der beiden neuen Storys interessiert, ist mit dem Download-Einzelkauf besser beraten. In der Kombi stecken die beiden Episoden die meisten Vollpreis-Actionspiele in Sachen Umfang, Story und Spielspaß in die Tasche.

Episodes From Liberty City offre, pour 40€ seulement, 25 heures de jeu d'une grande intensité. Loin d'être de simples bonus, les missions proposées apportent un gameplay à deux-roues nettement amélioré dans Lost and Damned et innovent avec l'apparition du Base Jump dans Gay Tony. Riches, variés, introduisant des personnages attachants et charismatiques, ces deux épisodes doivent impérativement finir dans la ludothèque des possesseurs de GTA IV. Pour faire les choses dans l'ordre, les autres peuvent toujours se rattraper et s'offrir GTA IV (pas obligatoire pour faire tourner Episodes From Liberty City) à tarif préférentiel (environ 30€) avant de se procurer ce pack additionnel. Au final, pour 70€ tout compris, ils pourront bénéficier d'environ 100 heures de jeu dans l'univers de Liberty City. Merci Rockstar.

Si elles ne corrigent pas tous les défauts de leur aîné, ces deux extensions offrent une nouvelle plongée au coeur de la ville la plus impressionnante du paysage vidéo-ludique et bien qu'elles n'innovent pas radicalement, on y trouve des moments de storytelling d'une qualité rare. Difficile donc de bouder son plaisir pour peu que l'on soit amateur du genre, l'humour étant toujours aussi irrésistible et l'action toujours aussi intense. Cerise sur le gâteau, la compilation est vendue à prix réduit, autant dire qu'à moins d'être totalement réfractaire au concept il n'existe aucune excuse valable pour s'en priver.

Grand Theft Auto Episodes From Liberty City is Rockstar’s way of picking up a nice cheque from Microsoft without having to do too much. The foundations were already in place and the majority of the design, just a new story and a couple of characters to reinvigorate the masses once again. Job done without too much distraction from the next installment and nice piece of business for everyone involved except the paying public. At its reduced price this is an entertaining distraction but little more than a solid expansion pack when ideally we wanted something much more.
