Product Details

Product Description

From Amazon.ca

This is a pack of three Grand Theft Auto titles for PlayStation.

Grand Theft Auto places you in the role of a common street thug whose job is to carry out the will of ruthless crime bosses. Stealing cars and settling drug deals are just some of your dirty tasks as you run, gun, steal, and drive through three different crime-infested cities. Fail and you get cussed out by your superiors. Succeed and you rise through the ranks of the organization, get more respect, and tackle tougher missions.

In Grand Theft Auto: London Mission Pack, 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. 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 (it seems there were a lot of pubs in London back then) and new cars, including an Austin Powers-esque ride, complete with accompanying secret-spy music.

Grand Theft Auto 2 is, for the most part, a collection of enhancements to the original game. The graphics have been redone, the music is different, there is a slew of new weapons, the mission structure is a bit more complex, and the city feels more alive. There are three levels in GTA2. Each level is divided into three areas of turf, controlled by a different gang. The gangs range from the ever unpopular megacorporation, Zaibatsu, to the dirt-road mobile-home-owning Rednecks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than a stick in the eye... Aug. 14 2003
These game are historical. You can clearly see where GTA3 evolved from. The original GTA is worth a look for historical purposes only. GTA: London '69 is entertaining until you get a headache from the painfully low-res graphics. GTA2 is one of the best games for PS1. If you want a video game museum, this should be your top exhibit. If you want a GTA game for your PS1, just buy GTA2 alone. If you have a PS2, skip this collection and buy your GTA3 and/or GTA: Vice City now!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Value. Aug. 6 2002
This game does not add much new to the series, but this package is a great value. It has Grand Theft Auto, Grand Theft Auto London, and Grand Theft Auto 2. All three of these games are true classics, and this is a great package to own if you like GTA. If you played GTA 3, you also should play this to experience its past. The gameplay in these titles is truly classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars heat things up(with flamethrowers) May 20 2003
This is a great collection of games! Here I will give info on each of the games. Grand Theft Auto:This is a great game! You run around the city and have to make enough money to make it to the next level. If you want to work your own way to the top,you can simply run around,kill people,steal cars,and put cars on a crane at harbor areas for cash. However,you can also follow a yellow arrow to mob missions that you can get either from phones or hidden cars. The mob missions include picking up people from bank jobs,hitmen work,carjacking a certain type of car,car bombings,and stealing contraband from rival gangs. You also get cellphone(missions only) and pager messages. Emergency Response:Whenever you commit a felony(serious crime) you get a cop after you. Police swerve in front of you,try to pull you out of your car,try to grab you on foot,and shoot at you. The more crimes you commit,the more cops respond(up to four). When your wanted level reaches three,police set up road blocks that consist of multiple police cruisers and officers that fire on your car with handguns. At level 4,there's also roadblocks but the officers at them switch from handguns to machine guns. Also there's ambulance paramedics that come in a ambulance and treat civilians on site. Police will respond faster when you are close to a police station,and likewise ambulances respond faster when you are near hospitals. There's also fire stations,but no fire trucks(actually,there is in the pc version but not in the PSX one). Next there's GTA London 1969. It's like GTA1 only in london and in the year 1969. Also,this time around you have a walkie talkie and mobile telegram machine since pagers and cellphones hadn't been invented yet. Read more ›

2.0 out of 5 stars Leaves Much To Be Desired July 15 2003
By A Customer
While this product boasts three different versions of the game, they are mostly the same except for some different roads. I suppose it's an okay game if you're just looking to kill time. I thought for the price it was being offered, I would be getting myself a bargain with 3 games! However, I quickly found out that the three versions are so alike you are really only getting the one game, with a couple different "boards."
If you were a close friend of mine, I would not recommend that you buy this game. However, if you are really into the overhead views and the similar aspects of all three games - be my guest.
