This package is essentially 3 games in one. Don't mistake TLATD and TBOGT as DLC, they aren't.
The original game is huge and follows Niko Bellic as he arrives in Liberty City to meet his cousin Roman and live the American dream. However, this notion is quickly dispelled as Niko finds out that the dream is more of a nightmare as he quickly gets entangled with gangsters, crooked cops, shady law enforcement agencies and the mafia.
The Lost and the Damned sees you as Johnny, the vice president of the afor-mentioned motorcycle club battling to save the club as the president, Billy, is released from prison, hell bent on causing as much carnage and mayhem as possible.
In The Ballad of Gay Tony you play Luis, joint partner in two of the hottest clubs in Liberty City with Tony. Unfortunately Tony has loaned a lot of money from the wrong people and again thngs start to go wrong quickly.
In all of the games there is a multitude of things to do, from activities like base jumping in TBOGT, to taking your girlfriend on helicopter rides in the original game, as well as interactions with certain members of the public on the street.
All of the activities are well thought out and contribute to your enjoyment of the games. This game can seriously stunt your social life as you get sucked into each of the characters stories and see how they interact with one another. This being said, TLATD is probably the weakest of the stories, however, this being said, its still very enjoyable.
None of these games are graphically led. However, neither are the graphics as poor as has been mentioned in previous reviews. The main pull of the GTA games is in the story and the development of your character and this is accomplished spectacularly in all 3 stories.
The three stories on offer here are more than worth the asking price and well worth a try.
