Additional Information about Grand Theft Auto — Mission Pack #1: London 1969 (Sony PlayStation 1, 1999)
As the first mission pack ever released for the PlayStation, Grand Theft Auto: London 1969 gives would-be car thieves a whole set of brand new missions to tackle. You’ve been hired by Archie and Albert, known as the Crisp Twins, to do their dirty work; stealing cars and making sure rival gang members no longer walk the streets.
The streets of London have been faithfully reproduced in an overhead viewpoint fashion. While there isn’t much time for sightseeing, players will pass the Westminster Abbey, magnificent Big Ben clock tower, and take scenic drives through Hyde Park. Additionally, the Crisp Twins have bomb and spray shops set up all over the city.
Like the original Grand Theft Auto, the coppers are onto your devious crime syndicate. As you go around stealing cars and murdering innocent bystanders or gang members, they’ll start chasing you. Your objective is to get the Bobbies off your trail, which is usually easier said than done. The Filthometer displays how badly the cops want to either kill you or arrest you; the higher the meter gets, the more inclined they are to bust you.
Because this expansion pack takes place in the past, the developers opted for a realistic arsenal of cars and radio stations pertaining to the time period. Rather than sporting around in modern-day taxicabs and pickup trucks, you’ll be cruising around in British/classic styled vehicles; the speedy Jaguar and the old fashioned Volkswagen Beetle included.
Grand Theft Auto: London 1969 features psychedelic Britpop and classical selections, and like the original, every car is tuned to a different radio station for added realism.
