To insinuate that The Lost and Damned is downloadable content is almost an insult to the depth and content that is packed into a tiny 1600 Microsoft Point punch. The Lost & Damned ($20, €19 or £13) is as big a bargain as you could possibly ask for and can offer you a hell of a lot more content than your traditional budget titles and even fully blown retail games, but with 50 times the quality. If you loved GTA IV to pieces like us, you’ll love The Lost & Damned, but don’t kid yourself, if you hated it, it’s still GTA IV and chances are it won't change your opinion. The Lost and Damned is tremendous value for money and is certainly a game within a game; welcome to the new standard for downloadable content.

If The Lost and Damned is any indication of the quality of Rockstar’s work, Microsoft appears to have gotten a great deal when they snagged the exclusive rights for the two extra episodes to GTA IV. A “steal” isn’t a good enough word to describe how much of a deal this add-on content is. To put it in perspective, buying all of the expansion’s new songs on iTunes would cost more than the price of the whole game. Do yourself a favor and join the Lost M.C.—it’s a wild ride.
Microsoft hat sich die zwei exklusiven Episoden zu GTA IV eine Stange Geld kosten lassen, man munkelt, dass circa 15 Millionen US-Dollar für die exklusive Entwicklung geflossen sein sollen. Wir durften im Vorfeld in London den Singleplayer und den Multiplayer auf Herz und Nieren testen und begutachten. Nun auch nach dem wir 1600 Points investiert haben, bereuen wir nicht einen Point und sind noch immer von dem Flair der Lost Bikergang gefangen. Es ist ein irre Gefühl mit eurer Gang auf den Choppern herumzucruisen und dabei wichtige Missionen zu erfüllen. Eine neue Story, neue Missionen, Waffen und Fahrzeuge, ein breitgefächerter Soundtrack mit zusätzlicher Musik, erstklassige Mehrspielermodi und ein unglaublicher Produktionsaufwand sind nur einige der wenigen Markenzeichen von Grand Theft Auto: The Lost and Damned. Falls ihr von Grand Theft Auto einfach nicht genug bekommen könnt, dann heißt es zuschlagen und downloaden, aber sofort!
The Lost and Damned gives you everything you could possibly want in a Grand Theft Auto expansion pack. It offers more action, more crazy characters and more incredibly sticky situations. It also features a fantastic story that manages to tie everything in the original GTA IV together in surprising ways. If you're a GTA fan, then you have no excuse not to pick up The Lost and Damned!

DLC done right, we cannot recommend this highly enough, at only $20 Rockstar has gone a beyond the call.
As it stands, The Lost and Damned adds a lot to an already proven title, and some may argue the meat of The Lost and Damned (its story) tops the off-the-boat antics of Niko Bellic and co. And I'm inclined to agree. For 1600 Microsoft points (roughly AU $26), this really is worth it.
The Lost and Damned is an excellent, well-produced, complete title. It, deservedly, makes Project Anchorage, Bring Down the Sky and Knothole Island look timid. It makes Half-Life's Episodes look miniscule.
TLAD is a great expansion for an already great game. Microsoft’s 50 million dollars have clearly paid off; Rockstar has crafted something that every 360 owner should experience. In a way, though, it’s a pity that PS3s won’t be seeing this content. TLAD will go a long way in fueling the endless fanboy feud, which is unfortunate, but then again, it’s probably what Microsoft wanted all along. It boils down to this: if you have GTAIV on the Xbox 360, buy this expansion. If you don’t have it on the Xbox 360… apologies. In a perfect world, it’d be available on all platforms, but sadly, politics wins out. TLAD is a great piece of extra content that sets the bar for DLC expansions in the future; and, while it isn’t exactly something to be proud of, it’s one of the best reasons to own a 360 so far this year.
For 1600 micro points ($20) you couldn’t buy a boxed game this good. The downside for some of us old-school 20-gig folks is that we’ll have to start seriously thinking about upgrading to the 60 gig to make room for future game add-ons. Granted not every game you buy will warrant you spending extra money for new content but it would be fair to say that with games of this caliber there will be an expectation of more to come.
"The Lost and the Damned" é uma expansão tão completa e caprichada que, por US$20, se sai melhor do que muitos lançamentos atuais completos que entopem as prateleiras das lojas e locadoras todos os meses. Com uma trama nova com cerca de dez horas de duração, novas armas, veículos e canções, além de um multiplayer reforçado, não há como um fã da franquia ignorá-la, mesmo que não simpatize dos novos rumos da história ou seu protagonista.
Pierwszy dodatek do GTA IV wprowadza wiele poprawek do sprawdzonego schematu zabawy, dzięki czemu chwilami przebija podstawową wersję gry i tworzy nowe standardy dla dodatków w ogóle.

The Lost and Damned has not only reached the goals I had set out for it months ago but surpassed them comfortably. The size of the expansion is not to be underestimated and there is a great variety of action on offer both offline and online. The new story is entertaining and very different from Niko’s previous exploits and offers a new take on Liberty City that fans of this genre will fall in love with. The only problem now is that all the downloadable content will be measured against this, and there really is nothing even to come close.

I can't say I like The Lost as much as I adore the Bellics, and in single player I would like to have seen some of the AI a little sharper on occasion, but really there's not much to complain about with The Lost and Damned, and we've not even touched on other additions like new music, new DJs and new TV content. Even the pesky grain effect that covers the screen in the preview version we played last month is something that can now be turned off. It's without a doubt one of the best downloadable game expansions ever made, and a truly worthy addition to one of (if not the) defining title of this generation to date.
If you weren't a fan of Grand Theft Auto IV (or the franchise in general), The Lost and Damned probably isn't for you. While it features more of what made the game great, it also makes some of the same mistakes as the original (though we do love that the replay feature has been improved to take you to a mid-mission checkpoint). However, if you loved GTA IV, it's pretty safe to say that you'll have a great time with the first piece of DLC. Hopefully this is just the beginning and we won't have to wait another year for more.
It's important to note that The Lost and Damned is not a new game. There's just so much content here that it feels like something brand new. This is a downloadable episode and as such, it is judged against other episodic content on Xbox 360. But even something like Elder Scrolls IV's The Shivering Isles can't compete against The Lost and Damned. The gameplay changes are great and the multiplayer is excellent. If the story and new characters were better, this would be the perfect $20 download. But as it stands, it's still the best available by a long shot.
The Lost and Damned gehört wohl zu den sinnvollsten Zusatzinhalten, die man auf dem Xbox Live-Marktplatz bekommen kann, eine gewisse Begeisterung für GTA IV natürlich vorausgesetzt. Eine zwar kurze, aber unterhaltsame Story mit einem neuen Helden, verbesserter Bike-Steuerung, Biker-Waffen und -Fahrzeugen sowie neuen Betätigungsmöglichkeiten im Multiplayer-Bereich sind gemessen an dem geringen Preis lohnenswerte Gründe, sich das Add-On mal anzusehen. Die neuen Mini-Spiele sind allerdings nicht so toll. Zu beachten ist, dass das Geschehen schwerpunktmäßig in der Biker-Szene spielt und dementsprechend viel mit Motorrädern zu tun hat.
Even in light of the claims made for The Lost and Damned, the sheer size of this expansion is staggering. GTA IV’s detractors may bemoan that what’s on offer is more of the same – while those enamoured with that game will be overjoyed at how much more of the same there is. Rockstar may, however, be a victim of its own ambition, as players hold up the content of The Lost and Damned to direct comparison with its forebear. Nevertheless, it’s a tale worth playing through and a welcome opportunity to once more step foot in the still magisterial Liberty City - and as an expansion it sets a new precedent for what’s possible with downloadable content at a price that makes it unmissable.
The Lost and Damned is een must voor iedereen die plezier beleefde aan GTA IV en zich minstens tien uur wil laten meeslepen door een opnieuw sterk verhaal. Knipogen naar het origineel, meer speelgoed en nieuwe multiplayermodes maken dit tot een echt waar-voor-je-geld-uitbreiding. Dit smaakt naar meer.
Overall, what you get in The Lost and Damned outweighs that of many other games which cost three times as much. If you're a fan of GTA4, or thought Niko's story only scratched the surface, give Johnny and The Lost a shot.
Med en speltid på tio timmar, skyhöga produktionsvärden och en prislapp på under 200 kronor sätter The Lost and Damned en helt ny standard för nedladdningsbart material.
The Lost and Damned n'est pas qu'un simple contenu téléchargeable. C'est une aventure pensée et réfléchie de sorte à coller avec les événements de GTA IV, et même à dévoiler quelques surprises aux joueurs. Cet épisode n'est pas une brindille et constitue réellement un privilège pour les possesseurs de 360. Johnny Klebitz et ses acolytes remplissent parfaitement leur mission, à tel point qu'il n'est pas nécessaire d'aimer rouler des mécaniques et écouter du rock pour s'immerger dans l'univers des Lost. A 20€ pièce, il serait bien étrange de tourner le dos à ce DLC, d'un niveau bien supérieur à la moyenne des téléchargements payants dans ce genre, notamment grâce au soin apporté au solo comme au multi.
Une extension bien rodée, et surtout un bon prétexte pour se replonger dans Liberty City.
Gdyby Johnny Klebitz i jego banda The Lost byli bohaterami podstawowej wersji GTA IV, produkcja ta na pewno nie odniosłaby takiego sukcesu. Są źli, brzydcy, a najprawdopodobniej także brudni i nie budzą wielkiej sympatii. W rozszerzeniu sprawdzają się jednak znakomicie - pozwalają spojrzeć w inny sposób na najwspanialsze miasto w historii gier.
So It was a bit of a downer for ps3 owners to hear that a franchise which made it’s mark first on the ps2, wouldn’t be getting this extra content. But it’s just good to have more GTAIV so we can QQ, or we can PEW PEW, I’m giving The Lost and Dammned 8/10.
If you didn't like Grand Theft Auto IV, you won't like The Lost and Damned. LAD doesn't make any major revisions to the gameplay mechanics from the original game and whatever annoyed you about GTA IV has probably survived into the expansion. For those of you who aren't looking for a better Grand Theft Auto but simply more of what GTA IV offered up, then LAD is definitely for you. It's consistent with the style and quality of the base game and, perhaps just as importantly, its price matches up with the amount of gameplay it offers. For a third of the price of GTA IV, you're getting an extra third of the game. LAD might not win over GTA IV haters but it definitely raises the bar for downloadable content. It makes other DLC feel like even more of a rip-off.
While the company's talent with stories suggests the day may be approaching when GTA runs up against the inevitable limits of openworld titles - a Scorsese-quality narrative, where characters are happy to spend their time driving around in klutzish dodgem cars - for the moment, the trade-off still works. That's why, for now at least, you'll be more than happy to come along for the ride.
While Lost and Damned still suffers from a whole laundry list of problems already present in the original Grand Theft Auto IV, it is still a very enjoyable game. Building off an already impressive design set by its predecessor, this DLC pack only shows what awesome scenarios can be told in future content packs. Its story can feel disjointed at points, but it is contained between exciting missions and just about the exact amount of time you'd feel comfortable roaming around in a downloadable title. Certainly, if the online modes were better implemented, it would've been the ultimate hog lover's dream. Ride on, brother!
At first Bajo, I was feeling that old GTA grind, especially for missions and activities where I was forced to use the bike, but the checkpoints are much better placed in this DLC, which shows that Rockstar are listening to their community. I’m giving it 7/10.
In summary, The Lost and Damned offers some minor improvements to gameplay; a tolerable, non-judgmental protagonist; an arm-wrestling mini-game; and a glimpse of an old dude’s flaccid cock. If you aren’t excited yet, then save your $20.
