Description

Grand Theft Auto: Mission Pack #1 - London 1969 is an official expansion pack to Grand Theft Auto. Instead of the fictional interpretations of New York, Miami and Los Angeles of the original, this game opens up the city of London to the player. The game features thirty new vehicles, new graphics and thirty-two new missions; all in a distinctly British theme. The new city contains many familiar landmarks from London in the late 60s as well as other cultural reference and Cockney slang. This time the player can choose the avatar's appearance, otherwise gameplay has not been changed from the original game. The player still is involved in organized crime and must perform a variety of criminal activities.

Trivia

German version

When playing the game with German language settings, four of the protagonists (Mick Casey, Winston Henry, Wolfie Vilans and Johnny Hawthorn) can't be chosen.

Soundtrack

One of the most prominent parts of the game is the soundtrack which features beat, psych and reggae tracks. However, the credits section doesn't have any info on who composed the music. This music mostly consists of tracks from Italian cinema of late 60s to early 70s, including infamous spaghetti westerns, spy thrillers and exploitation films, e.g. Teresa la ladra, Una sull'altra or Your turn To Die. Many of the compositions are created by noted movie composers Alessandro Alessandroni, Francesco De Masi and Riz Ortolani.
