If you think it's hard to flag down a cab in a big city, try driving one in Sega's zany straight-from-the-arcade port of Crazy Taxi. If you're one of the teeming fans who eagerly played Crazy Taxi in the arcade at a buck a pop, then this game is a must-buy, if only from a purely economic standpoint. Even those who don't know the difference between Crazy Taxi and the long-running TV series Taxi will immediately recognize the appeal of this game. In fact, this game is so impressive and addictive that it should easily convince a whole new wave of buyers to purchase a Sega Dreamcast.

What's so hot about Crazy Taxi? For starters, the graphics sport the most impressive re-creation of a living city ever seen in a video game. The level of detail is astounding and never ceases to surprise the player as block after unique block speeds by. The city is a distilled version of San Francisco with some landmarks and neighborhoods left intact. Making it seem all the more real are apparent product placements of real-world retail locations such as KFC, Tower Records, and Pizza Hut. And just about everything you see on the screen is interactive: boxes, phone booths, and mailboxes topple when bumped or smashed, pedestrians leap and tumble out of your path, and the myriad of traffic attempts to avoid your erratic high-speed antics. While some driving games brag about a lack of boundaries, this one delivers--players drive on the ocean floor, off the second floor of a parking garage, through parks, and down stairs. A helpful hovering arrow points drivers in the correct direction, but you can truly drive wherever you want at any time, making for tons of replay value.

While the game is a direct port from the arcade game of the same name, there's plenty more depth in the home version. In addition to the city that appears in the coin-op version, the Dreamcast version also includes an entirely new city. Crazy Taxi includes a trunk-load of mini-games that help to teach drivers how to perform the special speed boosts and maneuvers in the game.

Though this game would be plenty exciting without any sounds at all, it has an adrenaline-pumping soundtrack supplied by punk crossover bands the Offspring and Bad Religion, as well as some good, if sometimes monotonous, dialogue between the driver and the passengers. --Jeff Young


  • Wonderful, realistic graphics
  • Easy to get into, and full of many long hours of addictive play
  • Even more to offer than the fantastic arcade game upon which this is based
  • On very few occasions players will encounter some graphic slowdown

Ever wanted to drive 90 miles an hour through traffic? Now you can. Crazy taxi is a hilarious, fast-paced, extremely fun driving game. The scenario is perfect and guaranteed to create suspense and to cause big laughs. For example, there are a series of challenge games that pit you against a course or a set of obstacles. My children laugh uproariously when I miss a jump and fall down into the depths of the ocean. The main game is full of little details and surprises. The game goes so quickly that you hardly have time to look around the amazingly realistic city you are working in as a taxi driver. One way to limit the inevitable boredom that comes with mastering a game is to start concentrating on exploring the virtual world. Also, there are options for making the game more difficult. Unlike a race game where you are stuck to the course, this game lets you drive on roofs, through train tunnels and even under the water. There's a sort of guilty joy that comes with driving through the mall in the wake of screaming pedestrians.
This last bit of fun is part of the reason that I don't recommend the game for children and why it is rated Teen. This game does not model thoughtful, defensive driving! Parents should know that some of the characters use mild curse words and say "unsupportive things." Also, the "F" word can be heard on the soundtrack in at least one of the songs. And, I'm sure you're child would hear the song enough times to start to be able to pick out the words. You can turn off the music and the game is just as fun. I think the hard driving music does add an appropriate element of "crazy" to crazy taxi. I recommend Crazy Taxi very highly!

A lot of people seem to have trouble 'getting' Crazy Taxi, or rather, understanding why it's something that's supposed to stay fun after the first few tries. It seems to have an immediate appeal to EVERYbody: it's hectic, looks great (full of little touches that nobody's likely to notice, like the dead-on shadows), and you get to drive like a maniac in a bustling, hilly city without suffering the consequences. But after awhile, a lot of people find Crazy Taxi repetitive and dull.
I think Crazy Taxi is more for the pinball/Robotron/Stargate crowd than most games that come out nowadays. The main challenge and reward in it is improving your skills, being able to take the shortest path at ridiculous speed without running into ANYthing (that is, anything that's going to slow you down) -- other than the mostly-instructional "Crazy Box" challenges there's nothing to beat, no extra levels or cars or bosses to get, and the congratulatory credits roll every time you get a reasonably good score. There's a lot of space to improve your skills, though, and a lot of cleverly arranged structures in the game's two cities for taking risks and getting rewarded. If working toward mastery of a fixed, complex environment sounds like fun to you (like pinball, and as opposed to "getting to the next level"), and you're dying for a game that you can actually pick up for five minutes and then put down, then Crazy Taxi just might be for you.
The biggest problem with CT (in my opinion) is that technique isn't rewarded as much as speed is. While a particularly brilliant chain of maneuvers will garner a decent tip (bonus points to you and me), shaving a second or two off your travel time will get you more money than driving boldly, and also mean more time on the ever-decreasing clock. Ah well.

Crazy Taxi is just one heck of a ride! The thing that makes this game great for people who have short attention spans (such as myself) is that anybody can hop in and start playing right away. Some people don't want to spend an hour or more on a game, and this game delivers a lot of fun right away. Fast-paced, furious and fun--isn't that what racing games are all about?
I don't think you can get bored easily with this game if you truly have a racer's mentality. I loved this game because instead of the course dictating your path in driving, in Crazy Taxi, you can choose WHERE you want to drive and HOW you want to drive, and the city is quite large. You can drive as recklessly as you want, which is great (and your car never suffers any damage or topples over--you still can control it even after numerous collisions). Out of control, weaving in and out of traffic, crashing into things and trying to run over pedestrians; it feels like a wild bumper car experience but much more frenetic. It's wild and crazy driving at its best!
I had my doubts before this game, but it has thoroughly impressed me. The Dreamcast is known for excellent arcade game translations and this is another great example. You have to love the incredible effort that Sega put into this one, especially if you're a big fan of racing games. The only thing I wished it had was more soundtrack options; it does get a little tiring listening to the same old tune, but that's the only complaint.
To summarize, Crazy Taxi is definitely one of the best Dreamcast games out there and an instant classic!

I must say that I, in the begining thought that this was just another racing game on the market. Then my friends were all talking about it. Of course they told me it was the best! I didn't believe them that is was the best game ever, because thats what they alwas say about the latest games. But they kept nagging me. So I checked it out. I started playing and I couldn't stop! The game is set as you as a Taxi driver, you go around picking people up. You take them around a very nicly set city. It has highways, roads, bridges, buildings, etc. It also has some familier places like Pizza Hut, Tower Records, and a few others. It's also fun to see the different places. I just kept making money once I started playing. But one thing kept me from a 5 star rating; NO MULTIPLAYER! I am a single player (I play alone), but I still couldn't believe that such a great game doesn't have multiplayer! But I won't say that this isn't a great game, it has beautiful graphics, wonderful design, and it's so simple to play. This game can be played by all. I recomend this game for all ages and the lone players!
