Product Description

From the Manufacturer

London 1969 - You are a stylish hooligan entering a new decade of grievous bodily harm car-jacking and general thugggery. Drive Run and Shoot your way into all sorts of trouble with the law ruval gangs and civilians. Warning requires original Grand Theft Auto disc to operate. Parental advisory - Explicit contents.

Review

The original Grand Theft Auto delivered a new type of experience. The overhead "crime spree on a disc" managed to be more than just a shocking, violent game. It was just plain fun to drive around, get into a four-car pileup, hop out of your stolen car, mow down four or five pedestrians with a machine gun, and blow up a few cop cars for good measure. GTA: London 1969 bridges the gap between the first game and GTA2, scheduled for release later this year. As one would expect from a mission pack, there haven't been many changes made to the formula, so only those who still enjoy aimlessly driving through the streets of Vice City in search of a new car to steal and blow up need apply.

Though mission packs have long been a part of PC gaming, there really hasn't been any solid add-on technology on consoles. GTA London requires that you own the original GTA disc (Rockstar is selling the two discs together under the name Director's Cut, in case you don't have the full game) and makes you put it in while starting up as part of its bizarre swap trick-esque startup sequence. You boot up the system with London in the unit. It'll tell you to put in the original disc, spin for awhile, and then tell you to put the London disc back in the drive. Whether this is because it's actually using game code from the original disc or just trying to keep people from playing the cheap add-on without buying the more expensive full game is unknown, but I'd suspect it's the latter.

The differences between the mission pack and the old GTA levels are minimal. If you want to stay legal, you'll want to stay on the left side of the road. You'll also be entering and exiting vehicles on the right side of the car. This will initially cause a bit of confusion. I know it caused me to get caught by the cops (er... nicked by the bobbies... whatever) more than once. All the speech has been replaced with the slang and accents you'd expect to find in London around 1969. The music has also been completely revamped, and it fits the scenario nicely. The graphics are mostly new as well, providing new textures for buildings (there were a lot of pubs in London back then, I guess) and new cars, including an Austin Powers-esque ride, complete with accompanying secret-spy music.

The GTA London mission pack really doesn't hold a candle to GTA's original three cities, but it still manages to be reasonably fun. If you've still got that itch to jack fools for their rides and smoke cops (and honestly, who doesn't?), then GTA London should make the wait for GTA2 a little bit easier to bear. --Jeff Gerstmann

5.0 out of 5 stars Grand Theft Auto - London May 13, 2000
By A Customer
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Grand Theft Auto London is quality if you enjoy a game with pure violence, crime and excitment as you try to escape from typical British police. The scene is set in 1969 and you are part of an English mob run by the Crisp brothers. All you have to do is follow their orders and complete the tasks they set to become more well known and higher in the world. If you dont like following orders you can steal cars, kill innocent people (using many different varieties of weapons)and if that is not enough you can simply enjoy the scenery, places and landmarks of London.

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome November 10, 2006
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
So what if the graphics and sound aren't up to todays standards? This game is simply a racing delight. I had a lot of fun driving dangerously and violently around the streets of London. It's not like this game should be compared to the recently-released Grand Theft Auto games on the Playstation 2. If we do that, yeah, this game can't compare to that. But what can?

This is a really nice add on to the classic Grand Theft Auto. The vehicles are a little slower but it's nice to have a whole new city to destroy!
