Summary: With limited time unable to be disabled, only 2 cities and and a lack of extra content put into this re-release does not justify 800 MS Points, it is exactly the same as before - no improvements such as more cities, more fare destination variety and still the time limit cannot be taken off.
Summary: Pretty much everything is terrible. The only time you can spend on this game without wanting to come off is at the challenge modes. They're not fun. They're not interesting. But it's the only part of the game which makes sense on how to do better.

Summary: I'd idolized Crazy Taxi in its arcade form, so when I saw several copies available at the video store, I greedily nabbed one for myself. Ultimately, this is the sad story of a game with HUGE potential but a mediocre payoff.
Summary: Again, another failed attempt at a racing game. Crazy Taxi gets boring really quickly and then you really have no where else to go and you end up bringing this one to your local Funcoland or Game Stop and trade it in for something else.
