After playing GTA IV, I was still craving more action. Then Rockstar announced an expasion for the game. I was unable to get it because of a lack of online connection but when they announced the second expansion, they solved my problems. They put both games on a disk and allowed people like me who don't have online to play them. These games are just simply epic and add on to the awesomeness of GTA IV. I simply can't put this game down no matter how hard I try. The tank makes it's return in TBOGT as well as the return of the parachute (no more falling to your death). New and more powerful weapons are added to the games to make the experience a lot more fresher. The stories are solid and intertwine with each other. This game is worth the rent or better yet, buy it! It's worth it!!!

Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City is amazing choice for people who do not own Grand Theft Auto IV or do not have enough hard drive space to fit either DLCs. Episodes from Liberty City contains two story lines that intersect with the diamond storyline from GTA IV. The first one offered as DLC was The Lost and Damned, in which you play, Johnny Klebbitz, Vice-President for the biker gang, The Lost MC. The other episode is The Ballad of G.y Tony, where you play as Tony's bodyguard/club manager/friend Luis Lopez. Each episode contains multiplayer specific to each episode. TLAD has a few new race variants involving knocking people off bikes with a bat and TBOGT contains specific areas for Team deathmatch and new free mode options On a whole GTA Episodes from Liberty City is an amzing rent or buy that has two amazing stories although I recommend starting with The Lost and Damned and then going to The Ballad of G.y Tony. If you have not played GTA IV it is a must to get the full experience from the two story lines. (The periods are placed because the review process does not let you have the whole word.)
From the moment I ever started playing a Grand Thief Auto I was hooked on the series and to this day the title still interests me. Through the stunning artwork and compelling design Liberty City comes to life as you join a biker gang in The Lost and Damned and learn how to run night clubs while keeping your boss and friend Tony Prince alive and out of harms way. In the Lost and Damned you play as a character named Johnny Kebitz as you play deeper into the game you will learn more of his life and the struggles that he has and will face. In The Ballad of --- Tony you play as Louis Lopez a Dominican Republic who is now a Partner to the biggest night club owner in Liberty City (Tony Prince). In this story you will learn more about the night life of Liberty City and as you get deeper and deeper into this life it may just consume you. I recommend this game to any GTA fan and to all others too.
