Worth playing.

Yup, I'm that one person who hasn't played this game. True, I did try it way back in May but I had other games on my mind then. It didn't help that I hated how the textures would load slowly or the draw distance was messed up. That and I didn't care for the car physics. I know they did one update for MP but maybe they did another to the textures because I rarely see it now and the draw distance is fine. I had to get use to the cars but it's not much of a issue now. I also decided to play this game now because I have two weeks before Mercs 2 comes out so I needed a long game.

Still playing and I'm enjoying it much more after unlocking the 2nd big island. The 3rd island is a bit of a let down if you ask me. There is a couple things I wish would be fixed but the game is still a solid 9.0. I would raise it to 9.5 if they fixed those issues. I have about 15-20 missions left and have done most of the side missions like get cars, be a delievery guy, assasin, ect ect. I doubt the game will last me till Mercs 2 comes out but I'm looking forward to just messing around after the story is done.

Finished it up and was pretty much disappointed in the last few missions. I plan on going back and getting those 30 cars and just messing around but thats not a high priority right now. I do plan on busting it out later this month when we have our monthly 360 LAN party.

    It’s a bit weird how this generation has introduced the inclusion of downloadable content, as on the one hand it theoretically allows games to be expanded in fantastic ways, but on the other hand companies like Namco Bandai and Electronic Arts have made DLC rear its ugly head. Grand Theft Auto: The Lost and Damned not only proves a good justification for the existence of DLC, but also expands on the idea of what DLC can really do and sets a lead that all other developers and publishers should fo...
