More Grand Theft Auto than GTA

Summary: Crazy Taxi is one of the few 'true' 3D racing games for the GBA. It's not bird's-eye-view 2D like GTA or 'mode 7' 3D like The Simpsons but is true raycast 3D. And the game's a lot better for it. This is one of the first things that grabs you, the graphics are great for a GBA game. And unlike some other GBA games with good 3D (e.g. Stuntman, Need For Speed Underground, etc) they didn't compromise on the physics, the collisions, etc.
Summary: This game is good. There is no problem with the graphics even if they are a bit juttery. Once you get used them they seem to liven up. The game is centered around the original and has the same charachers and storyline. It also includes a normal rules section, a 3 minute run, a 5 minute run and a 10 minute run. The object of the game(for anyone who doesn't know)is simple.
Summary: I brought this game as I was having trouble getting hold of Crazy Taxi 2 for the dreamcast, sort of a subsitute really.... I have to be honest here that I didn't like the game that much to start with, as the draw distance was sooooo different to that of the DC. I don't have an xBox, but I have played Crazy Taxi 3 in HMV and liked it.
An extremely average title - a let down to the C.Taxi series

Summary: Crazy Taxi on the GBA initially appears to be one great achievment, it features Full 3D graphics, a decent amount of speed and gigantic maps to drive your Cab around as you frantically pick up the passengers. The maps are extremely similar to the two maps on the original Crazy Taxi - although cut down slightly. The framerate on the game takes a bit of getting use to - since it gives the illusion of the game playing slow.
