I originally played this game in the arcade and when i found out it was for the ps2 i got it, ever since then ive had the same great arcade expierience right in my own home. This games a must have classic! The game itself came out originnally on the sega dreamcast. Before getting the other crazy taxi sequels pick this baby up. It has arcade,normal, and crazy box modes. All modes are fun. You get to custimize the time limit.The whole thing of the game is you pick up and drop off people at their destination in time and get paid, You have to get as much money as you can before the time limit runs out. When time runs out you get ranked by the number of customers you had and how much money you got. You get to pick one out of four drivers to be.You get ranked by the alphabet. My highscore is a B-. Try and beat that !
Just a bunch of fun
This isn't a game that will challenge you it's just a fun game to play. There are no bad guys to kill and even when you run over people they do not get hurt just fuss at you. It is very fun though and the controls are very easy to grasp except it can take a while to get some of the special moves down but even that can be learned in learning games. You pick between 4 taxi drivers who all seem about the same driving abilities and pick up fares and deliver them to their destination. They are all the same people for the most part and you just drive them as fast as you can with fun ramps to go air born and even drive underwater. There are two different maps original and the new one. It's a nice clean driving game that gives me a lot of pleasure when I don't wish to think to hard just have fun. You can do arcade which you play which you gain time by making money, 3 min play, 5 min play or 10 min play. This is good if you don't have a lot of time to play and want a quickie. When you learn where everything is you can take short cuts but there is an arrow leading you the way and your passenger will tell you when to turn. It's a fun game but not very challenging which can be a good thing.
An "Every Once In A While Game"
For me this game is "alright" but only in occasional doses! This isn't a game that I would spend like hours on end playing. It's fun for about 30 minutes, to maybe like an hour, but for me that's it. The graphics are much like late 80's to early 90's style, not polished at all. The sound it "ok" as long as you can tolerate your taxi riders screaming insults at you, if not driving the way they want you to. The game controls are very straight forward and can be learned within minutes. I don't plan on ever getting rid of this game, but it will spend a lot of time on the shelf. Might not be so much for the adults, but I'm sure the kids will giggle and laugh and love it.
fun but can get dull
crazy taxi is definitly a fun game. the crazy box mode keeps you busy and teaches you a lot of skills that will come in handy. there are 2 other modes: arcade and origional but the only difference is the place your in. after playin this game for a couple months you might a bit bored of it but you will definitly go back for more
this game is good i like it where you just pick up people and just drop them up they might get fuzzy and say bad words but its as awesome game its cool crazy box is fun too but hard. my score in that game is a A try to beat that!
Have to be in the mood to play it.
This game is kinda fast pace like kinda like Burnout. But is a good pass the game around to play with friends.
I love crazy taxi!
I just got this game and i play it every day. I used to play it oN Sega dreamcast a long time ago & wheN i found out they had it for PS2 I just had to have it. This is a really fun game.
