I found TLaD really hard to play. I love GTAIV and TBoGT, I got the DLC the day it came out and only finished TLaD earlier this year . Johnny feels really clunky to control (even by GTA's standards!) and I got f**ked off with the bikes all the time, and pretty much all the characters did my head in!
Here's my 'review from May 2012! I stand by it - just wait until you get to Gay Tony, it's a cracker!
Finished The Lost and Damned last night. To be honest it's taken me nearly nearly 40 months to complete it, so I can't even remember the bulk of it, but that it's taken me 40 months to finish probably says all you need to know.
Emphasis on bikes is annoying as they're not that fun to drive, especially the big Harleys, Johnny is clunky and heavy/slow to control (I'm guessing on purpose due to his leathers, boots etc), Johnny is annoying, as are most of the people I remember from the game and although I can't remember exactly what went on before hand, the ending seemed abrupt, with your junkie ex gf just getting on my tits.
If you like GTA (or at least liked IV) it's definitely worth a shot, although I'd say get the disc version and then at least you can flog it. I remember downloading it the morning it was released, being super excited and was met by this clunky t**t of a character and being disappointed - so for 1600MSP, it was good value in terms of content, but just not that good.
