It’s fantastic DLC, there’s no doubt. Rockstar North have produced, with their two elaborations of Liberty City life, the most compelling argument for why we should tolerate downloadable content in the wake of the expansion pack’s death (which occurred under mysterious circumstances, but best not to dwell). First came The Lost and The Damned, nine or ten hours of smoky, leather-clad brutality in the brotherhood, and then followed The Ballad of Gay Tony, which I heard was sort of like Vice City and ergo awesome.

Well, I’ve only just finished TBoGT (which for reasons I can’t describe is an unexpectedly joyous acronym to type), and though it does return to GTA’s roots, it feels to me more like a Natural Motion-guided drunken stumble backwards than a celebratory homecoming.
