It really is the Dreamcast version!

Conclusion: Dynamite game! Get it if you got a GBA or DS. It's awesome that is was even pulled off to this on inferior hardware. Which makes me wonder about something . . . do we really need these game systems coming out if the SAME EXACT GAME can be done on inferior hardware? Just wondering . . .
Pros: The controls are good, the sound is good, the play is easy, and the game has all of the speech and remarks from the Dreamcast version! Both cities are here and has many bonus features to boot!
Cons: The graphics needed a once over, the object collision is terrible, but can get used to, the music lacks singing, and, of course, my favorite objection of all time: ACCESS TIME ON A FRIGGIN' CART! Geez! Stop doing this to good games! Also, the "places" are renamed. For instance, the KFC is now Joe...
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.
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.
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.
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.
