This game plays pretty much the same as the arcade/Dreamcast/PS version. It is a very fun, almost addictive game to play. Due to the memory contraints of the GBA cartridge the graphics and music of the other versions didn't make it into the handheld version, but once you get used to the chunky graphics it's not too bad. I think I turned the music off after the third time I played. Otherwise it plays pretty well on the GBA.

4.0 out of 5 stars Portable Crazy Taxi isn't half bad May 2, 2003
By A Customer
Pick up a customer, drive to the location, drop off, repeat - all within a certain time limit for each customer. The basis of Crazy Taxi: Catch a Ride is simple but so addicting. If you've played the dreamcast or other version you know what I'm talking about. I love the whole concept of Crazy Taxi and the GBA version conveys it nicely. The sound isn't horrible but it can't compare to Offspring and Bad Religion. My only complaint is the graphics which are choppy, but that issue is ignorable. This a great game for any one looking for a game just to pick up and play anytime.

3.0 out of 5 stars An Average Game !!!!!! October 1, 2005
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
When I first saw this game I thought to myself,....yes Crazy Taxi on the GBA. You can now play Crazy Taxi on the run, with this new portable version. I love all the Crazy Taxi games, including this one...yet it's not perfect by any means. When I first began playing it, I had a blast and kept on playing, and playing, like their was no tommorow.

Well, after awhile, their was nothing left to the game,.....!!! Their isn't much depth to the game at all, and after about 2-3 hours I've pretty much mastered the game, which didn't take much effort at all. I still had fun playing with the game awhile after though, but the flaws really killed the game, this game in reality could have been way better. I myself am not picky, but from graphics, to controls, and to the basic depth,... you can tell this game was just thrown together and mass produced to soon.

First, of all the game has some pretty bad graphics. The visuals are all chopy and messed up always has you crashing into something, I don't get it how could you go through part of a wall, but crash into a stupid tree or sign. Besides that the gameplay was fun, and very addictive. The gameplay in fact is probably the only thing that saved the game along with the Crazy Taxi name. The controls took awhile to get used of too, which wasn't a major problem for me but really using the L And R trigger to shift between reverse and forward, gosh.

Another problem was their are only two freakin' maps in the entire game; named city 1 and city 2; man thats original. Yes the maps are pretty decent size, pretty similar to all the other Crazy Taxi games in the past,... their wasn't anything to visually enjoy either. So I'm driving around, the environment is crap, the graphics suck, but oddly enough I still enjoy this game.

3.0 out of 5 stars No lasting appeal whatsoever July 3, 2005
By Meesha
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this because a couple of years ago I watched my boyfriend play Grand Theft Auto, and the fact that he could hijack a taxi in that, and pick up passengers sounded quite entertaining to me. I got a GBA for my birthday, and ended up buying this.

Big mistake. I shouldn't be allowed in shops alone to buy GBA games, cos I choose rubbish!

OK, the game was OK to start with. I figured out how to work it, despite having no instructions, and having my licence taken off me on my first go. I carried on, and 'completed' it within a couple of hours. Actually, I don't think there's any way you can complete it, but once you're the number 1 taxi driver out there, there's nowhere else for you to go.

The graphics are also terrible on the GBA, and I don't know why. I 'crashed' into walls & other drivers so many times simply because I couldn't work out where I was going. I had about a couple of inches away from my face most of the time, just so I could work out where I was going.

The training sessions, aren't worth the hassle of playing. They're pointless, and the only one I half managed to do was crash into balloons, and I still only managed 12 out of 20. It's impossible to achieve what is expected of you during the training.

I quickly became tired of this game, although I've kept going back to it, simply because the other game I've got for the GBA is getting on my nerves now. Which funnily enough also has a training session, but if you don't pass the training, then you don't get to play the rest of the game.

The game's also very repetitive. You pick up the same passengers at the same places, and take them to the same destinations.

3.0 out of 5 stars Same great gameplay, if you can get past the graphics February 23, 2004
The GBA conversion of the Dreamcast classic Jet Grind Radio was surprisingly transferred well onto the GBA, but this DC to GBA port suffers more due to the memory constraints of the system. When you get past Crazy Taxi's chunky graphics and almost non-existant sound, you'll find the same addicting gameplay that made Crazy Taxi a hit in the arcades, the Dreamcast, and the various other systems it has been released on since. The controls are as simple as they are on home systems, and the taxi handles almost as good as it has on it's other versions. The only major drawback of Crazy Taxi: Catch a Ride, and it is a big drawback, is the chunky and sometimes misshapen graphics that are almost reminiscent of the original Star Fox for the Super Nintendo way back when. If you can get past the graphics though, you'll find a solid game that is worth giving a look.
