In The Lost And The Damned, the city of Liberty hasn't changed but the additional content on offer packs even more of a punch. Included in this new episode are a whopping 54 new music tracks, 20 new vehicles, loads of new weapons including a powerful grenade launcher, new side missions, TV shows and multiplayer modes.
You now have the ability to call on your biker friends during missions for backup by using your in-game phone, which can be accessed by the up button. The more times you use them in a firefight and depending on whether or not they make it out alive, the more adept they become at handling themselves in battle. Alongside the campaign mode there is also a wealth of side missions to complete plus some brand new mini-games.
In The Ballad Of Gay Tony, the series makes a return to the zanier mission types fans of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas on PlayStation 2 may remember. Here, you have to take on tasks such as stealing gunships, sinking yachts and parachuting from a helicopter to a rooftop gunfight before leaping from the building using a second chute. It's intense, hilarious and challenging from start to finish.
There are also new weapons for you to get to grips with alongside mini-games that include dancing in nightclubs, club management and champagne drinking challenges. When you eventually finish both games, you will find out exactly what happened to the diamonds that were stolen from Niko and his cousin Roman Bellic during the course of Grand Theft Auto IV's epic storyline.
