Grand Theft Auto: The Ballad of Gay Tony

: The Ballad of Gay Tony


Five days have passed since Grand Theft Auto: The Ballad of Gay Tony went up on Live, and I’m sorry to say I haven’t had a moment to check out what I’m betting is a damn good game.

Sure, I know I should be impartial before I play anything I’m going to review, but let’s just be honest with ourselves; the first chapter in Grand Theft Auto‘s downloadable content (The Lost and Damned) was genius. It was also one of the best add-ons I’ve ever played, and even with the somewhat hefty price tag (it was 1200 Microsoft Points on Xbox Live), it was worth every credit.

If you haven’t heard much, here’s a quick intro: In the latest chapter on the streets of Liberty City you play as Luis Lopez, a local hoodlum who works for nightclub owner Tony “Gay Tony” Prince, a man at odds with the local mafia, and trying to prove his worth.

After the grim antics of the last chapter, The Ballad of Gay Tony promises to be a lot more light-hearted with the action, offering up a lot more in the way of explosions, jokes, and lewd behaviour, over the brooding bits that have come before.

When I can get away from the movie theatres this week, I’ll be sitting down to play the game. Until then, here’s the trailer:
