Well that was rubbish =/

For 23 main missions, all of them felt long (in a good way), action-packed and memorable. "Shifting Weights" mission reminded me of San Andreas' "End of the Line" mission where you are in the backseat of a bike, and shooting cops behind you. It was epic. Although I'm a bit disappointed about the ending (clubhouse wise), I no longer can find a place to play the card game that was shown in the clubhouse. I can care less about the T.V though.

 

All in all, I have yet to complete the side-missions and I plan to take it slow from here on out. The 50 seagulls thing is good to keep you occupied, however when I first spotted one, I felt disgusted. My initial thought was "I though I killed you f*ckers a while back?".

HA HA ha ha

 

Pigeons to return in DLC Mark II!!

 

Hey, I still haven't found them all in the main game. It's tedious if you have to concentrate on them rather then just come upon them in an area you happen to be.

 

For the main game, the mission length can SUCK if you have to start over, unlike in SA where a long mission at least broke into two parts, so you picked up in the second half of the Big Smoke gets Smoked one ... That's a nice method they should not discard.

I'm not sure why a few here were expecting alot more, because at first Rockstar announced the DLC's to range from 10-15hrs each, and from reading 100% check lists and other folks who finished it, your looking at about 15hrs of total game play(not including the 50 birds).

 

Sure some will rush through it in maybe 10hrs, but i'm sure they are not watching each cutscene and playing it faster then the average gamer.

 

I'm taking this DLC as slow as possible, and i'm through only 5 missions and iv'e put some 8-10hrs into checking out LC from Johnny's viewpoint.

 

But then again i put 200hrs into the first playthrough of the original game, that's just the way i take GTA games.

 

The original game had some 90 missions for $60 plus tax, and this DLC has 23 for $20 no tax if ordered over Live.

 

So you getting about the same bang for the buck here, because there was gang wars added in and alot more music tracks and other things, including new mp modes. And they did add a bit more of a 'rush' factor, in this DLC as well.

 

I think what is happening to GTA fans, is we are spoiled from GTA:SA having so much sp replay value, that we are expecting Rockstar to deliver this again..somehow, even just from a $20 DLC.

 

Personally, while i prefer the direction Rockstar took with GTA:IV's heavy storyline and improved core elements and added in online mp for the first time ever, they really need to realize that sp replay value is what alot of GTA fans are still demanding..or expecting, ever since GTA:SA.

 

And hopefully in a GTA:IV sequel or GTA:V, they deliver up on that once again. Rockstar set the replay value bar so high in GTA:SA(sp wise) that alot of GTA fans are now expecting it.

 

I still believe Rockstar will add in a bunch of GTA:SA like features in a GTA:IV sequel or through any DLC's after the X360 DLC#2 is released, of which should be multi-platform.

 

Don't forget the how it all played out last gen, with GTA:III, then a yr. later with GTA:VC(which added in some new features and a better storyline), then 2yrs later with GTA:SA that added in basically threw in everything you could imagine and more.

 

Rockstar is using the same pattern once again, this generation.

I must admit, I rushed through it, even though I said I wouldn't. I'm going to have another play through though. Take it slow. Get 100%. But make sure that the very last mission is the very last thing that I do. And also do sub-missions and rampages and stuff in the middle of missions so the story and game on a whole last longer.

those are fair points I see echoed among those with feelings against the direction RN move in.

 

I play only single player (SP), and I find replay value in the out-side mission context...taking on the ped world/interactions. Aren't there a lot of new exchanges from the characters added when talking with peds, for instance? I've not heard about that, but it's something that always makes me smile and play scenarios out like gang fights. I should think the replay would hinge upon that mostly.

please at least tell us WHY it was rubbish. I respect other people's opinions, but only if they can explain them.

 

I don't really have anything to complain, the game was indeed a bit short (but what can you expect from a DLC? it's not a full game) and the fact that you lose the clubhouse and get a burned out rubbish safehouse for it with terrible music playing all the time. but apart from that, I found it pretty cool. nice missions, music and atmosphere.

There are 4 random character missions.

 

2 missions with Malc

1 with Dave Grossman

1 with Brian Jeremy (If you spared his life during the "Bad Standing" mission)

 

Nothing new on any of the previous GTA4 random peds. But there is a new serial killer that Johnny sets loose in the "Off Route" mission. Curtis Stocker "The Dine and Dash" killer. He is a cannibal and is modeled after Hanibal Lecter.

it didn't feel short to me. it took me 2 weeks to finish the storyline, maybe a little longer. the first day I played I didn't even do a mission, I just rode around all five islands, checking stuff out, seeing what was going on.

 

anyone else notice all the activities and places to eat are never revealed unless you go inside and then the icon will appear?

 

I don't understand how you can sit down, play a game til its end, as fast as possible, only focusing on missions that will only progress the storyline and then complain that it went by so fast. duh. you're setting yourself up to be disappointed.

I dont get why any one would rush the hell out of the game anyway. I remember the day the lost and damned first came out, suddenly the next day the forums are flooded with walkthroughs and their expiriances of the game. I remember reading and thinking "wtf?" this just came out and they are done? In my opinion rushing a GTA game basicaly ruins the hole expiriance. It took me about 70 hours to complete GTA IV, I took my time and enjoyed the full expiriance, I dont see a point in rushing and then saying "hah i f7kin pwnz coz Iz complete g&m£ quik!"

 

Also how can you go on and complain that you wasted 14 bucks on this? What a retarded argument. Its add on content for crying out loud it seems as though you were all expecting some massive extra game. R* specificaly said it would be about 15 hours, so why are you all saying it was too short? You knew before hand what you would be getting and from what info I have gathered it was an excellent deal. If it ever came to ps3, I could imagine completing it in about 30-35 hours because thats just how I play.

Argh, I hate the colors, everything is just brown and yellow. If it ain't broken, don't fix it. And yeah, I turned that filter off and it didnt help, also tried to change brightness etc and no result. Switched back to vanilla-Iv and God, the sky is actually blue! suicidal.gif

 

The rest of the game is great, though. Except the lack of safe houses, hate to be stuck in Alderney.

First off, f*ck up...seriously, I'm not a kid.

 

Secondly I did pay for it myself, what I'm saying is some people did get other consoles as a gift, people that are mad gta fans and probably went mad hearing L&D was 360 exclusive...

 

So don't go running your mouth and making assumptions I'm a child...while stuck in your mum's basement with nothing better to do with your life than play games yawn.gif

So, you tell him not to make assumptions about you, and yet you go and make your own about him? That's called hypocrisy my friend, if you want my advice, just ignore assholes who only want to insult you.

R* specificaly said it would be about 15 hours, so why are you all saying it was too short?

Rockstar also specifically stated that it would be about one third the length of Niko's story. Last time I checked, 23 is not one third of 92. Don't get me wrong, I love the Lost and Damned I play it every day, but I wish Rockstar would stop misleading us. If it was supposed to be one third of Niko's story, than it was about 8 missions too short. And what about that tow truck? What special ability (according to Rockstar) does the tow truck have? The ability not to tow? dozingoff.gif

It wasn't a bad DLC, they just need to stop overhyping it and fans need to stop getting themselves over excited. First of all, lying does not help the situation. ''1/3 of GTA IV'', ''Tip of the Iceberg of what we've shown you'', etc. Stop overhyping these fans Rstar! I know it's your job to make things sound juicy, but you're only hurting yourself down the line.

And people, stop believing everything you hear, especially from Rstar. Expect the worse and you will be surprised.

 

And if you guys don't learn that, then some of you are going to be way dissapointed with Chinatown Wars.
