The first wave of reviews for The Lost and Damned, GTA IV’s first piece of 360 DLC, has gone live.

Everything so far below. Post in the comments if you want something added.

    Looks pretty shit to me. Obviously just some new clothes, cars and and a weapon or two. Horse armour just like people said it would be.

    I dunno, sounds pretty okay to me. Atronomical scores as per GTA4 and the media trying to back it up.

    It’s all about the story, innit. Plenty of people really went mental over GTA IV, and I guess they will over this too.

    Mike went back to it recently and said he really liked it. I might try again.

    Gamespot, clearly the greatest gaming website ever.

    Probably not worked out the appropriate size money hat for DLC reviews yet.

    Played today (GTAIV).

    The problems with the game are:

    -The quality of the writing isn’t as good
    -The dropping of popular culture aspects of the series ruined it’s charm
    -There is less to do
    -[^^That is probabaly becuase]There are less varied mission involving different mechanics.
    -The voice acting is second-rate

    Those are the main sticking points. Technically, outside of IQ and Framerate, the games artistic direction is SUPERB. And there is a lot of light sources. It is a technical marvel.

    That is clearly where all the money went.

    Pat was having a Buck’s Fizz moment ;)

    I really liked GTA4, not sure why so many people seemed to have a problem with it. First of the GTA games I really enjoyed, actually. Which may have something to do with it :)

    I think I’m just going off GTA. Used to love it on the PC with the very first one back when I was…


    12 that was it. Man, my parents we’re really irresponsible!

    GTAIV is better outside of the hype. It’s a better game than people (not reviewers) gave it credit for. The city is really immense, and in terms of a “next gen” GTA, they truly delivered. I hope those that were disappointed by IV aren’t put off of the inevitable next game, because now they’ve developed the engine and can concentrate on other aspects, I reckon it’s going to be something really special.
