|“In its ambition, fearlessness, style and production quality, it stands
from every other game franchise… There is no question that it is
most fully realized, thoroughly produced and substantial downloadable
add-on yet released for a console game… The Lost and Damned sets
new standard for what a downloadable console add-on can achieve.
Being bad still feels pretty good.” – The New York Times
“Forget everything you know about downloadable content for your
video games…The Lost and Damned redefines what's possible for
downloadable content with the beefiest game expansion to date…
Xbox 360 owners craving more Grand Theft Auto will find this
downloadable episode a wild ride worth taking.” – USA Today
“The writing is incredibly sharp… Close attention to detail is paid to
everything… The voice work is stellar… The Lost and Damned is one
of the most robust pieces of Downloadable Content that we’ve ever seen!”
"You may know the lay of Liberty City better than your own hometown,
but when this thriving metropolis is viewed through the eyes of
Johnny Klebitz, it feels new again… This expansion is every bit as good as GTA IV, and should be a priority for every self-respecting gamer."
– Game Informer
“The Lost and Damned delivers more of everything that defines the
venerable Grand Theft Auto series… an engaging story about brotherhood, responsibility, honor, sacrifice, and knowing when to walk away
from a fight… Overall, what you get in The Lost and Damned outweighs
many other games that cost three times as much” – 1up
“…the execution is excellent. Everything about The Lost and Damned
feels likeit was created to offer a completely new experience… If you
loved GTA IV, it’s pretty safe to say that you’ll have a great time”
“Revisiting Liberty City after a few month hiatus gave me a newfound
appreciation for the ridiculous level of detail and immaculate design
permeates every nook and cranny of the city… it’s worth every last penny
of its $20 price tag… easily the most well conceived and
piece of downloadable content ever, and it sets a new
bar for interactive
storytelling that won’t soon be matched.” – G4
“It’s impossible to give The Lost and Damned anything but a full
The story and acting are great, the missions are
enjoyable and riding around on the retooled bikes is the most fun it’s
in any GTA since Vice City… anyone itching to delve back into
should grab it now.” – GamesRadar
