the gta series rocks.i have played them all,and i think everyone out there should try them out.go rent all the games first.then,if you like them,come back here and buy them.all three games,grand theft auto,gta london,and gta 2 are all very good.big ups to amazon and rockstar games!(you gotta play gta 3 and vice city,too!!!)
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!
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.
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. One mission features a moped theft(kinda like the motorcycles in GTA1 that I forgot to mention). Next there's GTA2. It's basically the same as GTA1 ,except you no longer have a pager and there's gangs and tougher cops. First of all,there are no longer hidden car missions and you have to earn respect from the gangs for their jobs. How,you ask? Simple,just kill a rival gang. Gangs range from the disorganized and crazy loonies to the highly intelligent SRS Scientists and the big time Ziabatsu corporation. Missions include delivering drugs and ones involving gang wars. And finally,the police are packing a tougher punch with the assistance of SWAT Teams,FBI agents,and even army tanks,land roamers(both with and without machine guns),and ground troops.(some mob missions even involve fighting these higher law enforcement forms).
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.
