Crazy Taxi (GC)

1 June 2005
  • Excerpt: Crazy Taxi first appeared in American arcades as a popular game, warmly welcomed because of the refreshing twist on the driving genre. The simple fact was, it made errand running fun. After incarnations on the PS2, and Dreamcast, it finally came out with a less-warmly received sequel, Crazy Taxi 2. Then the Gamecube game came out, but it too was not well liked because it was just more of the same.

  • Summary: Buckle up - it's sheer asphalt anarchy! Crazy Taxi screeches onto Nintendo GameCube with one wild and hilarious joy-riding jaunt. As a fearless cabbie with attitude, you're driven by a single goal: to rack up the mega-bucks in fares and tips before your shift ends. It's a race against the clock as you pick up passengers and white-knuckle it through busy streets and back alleys to their various destinations.
  • Pros: This game has not yet been released. When it is, we will outline the positive aspects of this title here.
  • Cons: This game has not yet been released. When it is, we will outline any negative aspects of this title here.

  • Conclusion: Crazy taxi is old. No really, its fscking ancient. It was released a good four years ago for the Naomi arcade board, transferred to the Dreamcast in 1998, then transferred to every system under the sun after the death of the Dreamcast. Not actually the latest version of the game (that title belongs to the PC port), this is basically a direct port of the original. No extra modes, no extra options, no better graphics.

  • Excerpt: I love playing arcade games. I can spend my 50 cents, get a quick round of gaming excitement and leave satisfied. It seems that Sega really knows how to get me to pump quarters into their arcade titles too. Whether it is trucking in 18 Wheeler, racing against my wife in Episode One Racer or using the force in Star Wars Arcade, I always have a great time with Sega titles.

  • Summary: Any respectable gamer knows that Crazy Taxi is one wild ride. Is Acclaim’s GameCube port of the Sega classic worth the crazy money?
  • Pros: Framerate is 60 fps, fast & fluid, One of the greatest Dreamcast games for GameCube launch, Playing Crazy Taxi with the GameCube controller is simply wonderful
  • Cons: Almost nothing new whatsoever, The game’s announcer is probably too crazy for his own good, The new voices pale in comparison to the originals & samples are overused

  • Excerpt: Crazy Taxi originally came along at a time when many video arcades were beginning their inevitable decline - er, transformation into flashy family fun centers. Arcade-goers sick of the banks of ticket-dispensing, quarter-stealing Whack-a-Mole soul-suckers flocked to experience the wild physics and irreverent attitude of Sega's latest masterwork. Consider that an up.

  • Summary: Crazy Taxi for GameCube is no different than other versions of the game—but this also means it’s just as fun and wild as it always was.
  • Pros: Excellent, timeless arcade-style gameplay., Playing Crazy Taxi with the GameCube controller...yummy!, The Offspring, if you like them.
  • Cons: Absolutely no improvements from the Dreamcast version., Grating voice-work. Die, Mr. Announcer., Not very much depth in the long run., The Offspring, if you hate them.
