How would you rate GTA IV: The Lost and Damned now?

  1. 1. How would you rate GTA IV: The Lost and Damned now?



Recommended Posts

I'm aware of the existence of GTA IV's thread, but this one centers specifically on the first expansion pack of the game: The Lost and Damned.

 

So, how would you rate it now?

 

I personally give it a solid 9/10. Excluding the story's length, given the fact that it's an expansion pack, it's a pretty solid title that has the potential to stand out as a spin-off if R* considered that by extending the story. Interesting and well-written narrative with an outstanding beginning and ending, solidly developed characters who're likable and relatable, amazing atmosphere, dope selections of choppers and criminally-crafted weapons, and stunning side-missions and activities that are properly crime-centered.

9.5/10. It only loses 0.5 because of the clubhouse being burned down at the end. Everything else is top notch though. Way better than the other DLC.:)

Burning it down was perfectly appropriate for the story, though. But however, I agree that it should've been kept accessible for more replay value.

 

And yeah, it's definitely the better DLC out of the two! 😉

I know my brother, but from a gameplay perspective it's a bit of a bummer.

 

It's really the only black mark (albeit tiny black mark) against it. Soundtrack, story, missions, characters etc are as amazing as vanilla GTA IV.😎

With how sh*t turned out for the boys, watching the club house burn now is oddly cathartic.

 

It's the best DLC ever for me. Also if you turn off the grain filter, you have sh*t taste.

 

10

9/10. Great game. Could be even better with story mission objectives.

9.75/10, but I'll round it to 10, just like GTA IV! :)

6/10 - Too short a story but very fun. The first game I ever 100% completed.

This is the best official addon for a game I've ever seen. It's potentiality was underutilized though. Still, a great game.

I Didn't know the dude doesn't like bikers, thanks, i know they are bikers, criminals or whatever but i always tought IV/TLAD has the best characters in the series, like you know, even though TLAD is not a full game, it still has better characters than GtaSA or V lol

I vote 7/10 only because TLAD should have been the main game, not just an add on. 

 

Sooooo much potential to go so much further, I’m hoping we get another “biker” protagonist in the future, I’ve got a post in the GTA Next section about it

If you can 100% a game then proove you can do it the hard way. I guarantee even if you wanted to, you couldn't achieve 100% game completion with 100% shooting accuracy. Hahaha you give me sh*t yet, here you are bragging hahaha. Total hypocrite.

9 or 9.5/10. Great story and atmosphere. Missions are varied and action-packed while still being grounded. I just dislike how the only safehouse is in Alderney (makes sense story-wise but exploring the map a bit awkward). I'm also not a fan of the irreplaceable personal vehicle idea it introduced though it fits the DLC.

I give it 9 kill Brian alone far more satisfying than any other killing i made from whole GTA games.

9/10.Great game,but there are some stuff they could have done to make it even better.There could have been more bikes, some more biker-style clothes Johnny could wear instead of having only one outfit, maybe have some more missions like that beta mission shown in the trailer where Johnny, Jason, Brian and one more guy are doing a drive by from some old station wagon, maybe even motorcycle customization).

Hopefully R* will make another GTA game focused on biker gangs in the future,hopefully set in the 70s during the golden age of outlaw bikers,in a place with a big countryside with a lot of towns and long open roads around the main city.

As a DLC, 10/10 no major problems just I don't like the clubhouse not available after the last mission.

I wish both TLAD and TBOGT were developed as normal games and not DLC to be better(more missions,characters,secondary missions,mechanics,interiors and much more)

I agree. Arguably, they had the potential to make it into full scale spin-offs to GTA IV, especially TLAD, regardless of sharing the setting and year with it. Sure, it feels like both expansion packs revolve around the protagonists' crews more than the city itself, but R* could've made it work if they wanted to nonetheless.

I love TLAD but I really disagree with the TBOGT hate. For me, TBOGT is probably my favorite overall GTA experience. I'd give TLAD a 7 and TBOGT a 9. Before TBOGT/EFLC came out I might have given TLAD an 8 or 9, but TBOGT really overshadows it in every way imo.

 

I tend to take the two episodes as a package deal though and I'd say EFLC is the peak of GTA. The series has never had a better balance of style AND Substance.

This is a tough one, this game is an excellent follow up to IV with a great story, rock/metal music that suits the characters and their lifestyle, same great Liberty City Metropolitan Area with good physics, new cars/bikes, weapons.

The downside is lack of clothing options, one safehouse and the fact that the clubhouse is sacked and this whole biker bros thing loses it's appeal when Johnny K just lives in an abandoned house.

I'd say 7.5/10

Definetely, I like TLAD more than TBOGT. Shame, they have only 20 missions.

9/10 because of lack of bike customization and only one outfit for Johnny.

10/10, although even i would have loved to see the campaign be extended to IV's length. johnny k only has 22 missions and he's far better than many of the protagonists in this series. he is just that good. 😎
