Grand Theft Auto: Director's Cut comes with the original GTA in addition to the expansion pack London 1969. Regardless of which version you're playing, the objective is simple: steal cars for your gangster clients, deal with the local gang members, and get paid!
Played from an overhead perspective, the player will have to pay attention to his or her beeper and answer pay phones to obtain new jobs. Jobs include stealing taxicabs and picking up in-trouble gang members, being the getaway driver at a bank heist, and acquiring specific cars and taking them to the local chop shop. But the cops, or Bobbies if you're in 1969, are out for your blood; they'll do whatever it takes to bring you down, dead or alive.
Whereas the original Grand Theft Auto consists of three massively detailed, yet make believe cities, London 1969 is realistically laid out. Among the famous sites included are Buckingham Palace, the Westminster Abbey, and Piccadilly Circus. Additionally, where Grand Theft Auto features modern cars and street slang, the expansion pack uses old-fashioned cars and London terminology. ~ Matthew House, All Game Guide
