Cars, crime, controversy. Why yes it's Grand Theft Auto of course.
19 April 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It seems like fans finally got the explosive ending (I mean that quite literally) they were waiting for in this Grand Theft Amazing of a finale of the fourth series.

Luiz Lopez our final macho-man is it seems the Hugh Hefner of Liberty City - making the last two protagonists look like nuns. He also seems to top them style-wise, issue-wise, weapon-wise and about every other wise you can think of. He is loyal partner / bodyguard to 'Gay' Tony Prince, owner of two glitzy glamorous nightclubs in the otherwise mundane outside world.

Obviously being considered a critically acclaimed game you won't be bouncing every night until 'Story Complete' pops up. Instead expect a damn right brilliant story you can sink your teeth into, full of the usual yet still refreshing and more enjoyable tale of backstabbing, jealousy, Russian rockers and Yusuf Amir. This character has to be given particular praise for his bad dancing to 'Arab Money' and hilarious conversations with Luis, calling him every name under the offensive sun.

Like the two previous mass murdering characters, Luis isn't a cheery fellow (despite being a rampant rabbit) and it's roughly ten minutes before everything goes guns up and he actually has a reason to be unhappy. If Tony isn't calling him for help it's his mum in trouble, if his mum isn't in trouble it's Yusuf wanting to show off his 'bling'. But it seems Rockstar has listened to the fans about returning to it's beloved San Andreas roots and made one the most fun, challenging and volatile GTA's to date.

The parachute is back. Tanks are back. Well I say tanks, I mean a single tank which is the most unstoppable machine on wheels, so unless there is a twenty meter wall of steel or a basket of puppies in your way, it's unlikely nothing except will power is going to stop this bad boy. Weapondary has also seen some relentless improvements such as the terrorist friendly sticky bombs and a M249 SAW which packs a bigger punch than Rocky.

So, GTA fan or not this is certainly a near perfect DLC the fans, fanboys and fanatics have needed, to break out of the serious side of Liberty City and start diving and gliding out of whatever the hell they want to and enjoy how much fun there is still to found in this timeless series. DLC of the year? Most definitely, there's unlikely to be a more entertaining experience.
