Product Description

Product Description

Buckle up! Crazy Taxi is a wild and hilarious race against the clock. As a fearless cabby, your goal is to rack up big tips before your shift ends. Zip through the busy streets and back alleys of an incredibly realistic city to find the fastest route possible, by any means necessary. Made in USA.

Amazon.com

In Crazy Taxi, you play a cabbie in an accurate, yet highly comic, version of San Francisco. As you might expect from such a game, your job is to identify possible customers in the crowd (known as "fares" in the lingo), pick them up, and get them to their destination as quickly as possible. That's the taxi part. The crazy part is that traffic laws, pedestrian safety, and property damage are all negotiable. Simply put, the game rewards offensive--rather than defensive--driving, and that's what makes it so compulsively fun. Also, unlike most racing games, there are no traditional boundaries or predetermined tracks for you to follow. The game allows you to follow your own path... even if that means driving over fences or under water.

Crazy Taxi is basically a driving game in which you play as one of four different taxi drivers trying to rack-up the most money in fares as possible. You pick someone up, drive them to their destination, drop them off, and repeat. Bonus money is given for getting a passenger to thier destination quickly and for performing trick maneuvers along the way. Fare money is lost if you don't arrive at the passenger's destination in the allotted time.
This game is almost an exact copy of the arcade game. In addition to the city in the arcade game, you also have another city to drive thru (recklessly). You also have a bunch of simplistic mini-games (called Crazy Box) which allow you to fine-tune your skills. You can play by the same rules as the arcade game (where playtime varies depending on your skill-level) or you can play a 3, 5, or 10 minute game. Individual and overall high scores are recorded.
My wife and I find this game highly addictive. It's a great game to play when you don't have a lot of time (or don't want to do a lot of thinking). I love my Nascar Heat 2002 and Twisted Metal: Black games (both of which I highly recommend), but they require a longer playtime and I rarely have that much time to sit and play them.
The only changes that I would like them to make to the game are:
1) Remove the vehicle pop-up. It's weird to look down a long stretch of road seeing no cars then all of sudden they're there (this does not affect gameplay in any way).
2) I should be allowed to kick a passenger out of my car once I reach the point where I know that I'm not going to get them to their destination in time (and lose their fare). After all, they see to have no problem jumping out of my speeding taxi when their time's up.
Again...this is an arcade-style game.

Yes, it is true. There are no updates to this game from the DC(Dreamcast) version, in graphics, sound, music, etc. But it is still nice to have a port from the DC of one of the most addictive and funnest video games to our very own Playstation 2. For those who experienced problems, like the background scenery suddenly disappearing, I think they had a defective copy. I never experienced such problems, and the game ran pretty smoothly. Such is the case for some other people who purchased Crazy Taxi.
The only thing that gets slightly annoying is that your car skids a bit. I don't know, maybe it adds to the playability of the game. Otherwise I think Acclaim did a good job porting the game from DC to PS2.
Frankly, I enjoyed this game, even though its exactly the same as it was on Dreamcast. It's still as fun, as addictive, as crazy as it was a year ago.

Crazy Taxi is a very fun take on the typical driving-type game. Fairly easy to control, fairly simple to master, this game is fun, fun, fun! You choose one of four taxi-driver characters and start picking passengers up and delivering them to their destinations. Don't worry if other cars are in your way, just bump into them, or better yet, launch yourself off a ramp to get ahead of them (or, if you think it might get you there quicker, try driving underwater or over grass). The punk sound track adds to the frenetic race to get people where they want to go in a San Francisco-like environment complete with recognizable retail stores (Levi-Strauss, Tower Records, KFC... hmm, product placement?).
Crazy Taxi includes several play modes that have different rules, depending on which you choose. There is also a training/practice mode that is quite challenging.
Parents of young kids: some of the passengers are verbally abusive if you don't get them where they want to go, and some cursing can be heard.

After hearing how great this game is, I bought it on the day of the release. Yup, I have to admit that it was fun driving anywhere around the city (even subways and water) to pick up/drop off passengers. The computer comments were pretty funny and there was no slowdown when number of items were on the screen at the same time.
But after about 2 hours of playing, I realized how disappointed I was with this game. As others have eluded to, it gets old driving around the same city. There was no drivers or cars to unlock. This makes longevity of the game questionable. Also the fact that there's no 2 player mode made me cringe. I'm not sure if the 4 characters had any differences between them either (though I heard they're suppose to).
Though this was a fun game, I ended up returning it after few days. If you're looking for a fun driving game, you might want to pass on this one and try Rumble Racing instead. Now there's an idea - incorporate Rumble Racing's unlock track/car feature on Crazy Taxi (or have a new track add-ons or something to keep the game going after a week or so).

A Kid's Review on May 28, 2002
THIS GAME IS THE BOMB! It's like the best arcade game ever since Pac-Man. I live in Brooklyn New York and there is this place there called "Circle 2." Well, it's a video store and there I played Mervel Vs. Capcom. It got pretty boring soon so as I left I saw this racing. I played it for several minutes and as soon as you know it, my 3 bucks in quarters were gone in record breaking time!
When my dad bought me PS2 the only game in my head was CRAZY TAXI, CRAZY TAXI! Then the next thing I knew, he bought me Crrazzyy Taxxiii. It was soooo fun I played it 7 hours straight. I almost played it for 8 hours but my mom said no more. But there' always tomorrow.
Hey to all dem people thinking of getting Crazy Taxi, but it! It's worth it! Trrrusst ME! ;)
