Conclusion: Crazy Taxi's soundtracks have always been at the top of the franchise's best features, and CT3's music is no exception. In fact, the music is certainly one of the reasons why this game is so addictive, and The Source is glad to see that many of the songs found in the previous versions have made their way back to CT3. The Offspring, Methods of Mayhem, Bad Religion, these bands are back in all their glory, and new artists make their way to the CT3 soundtrack as well.
Excerpt: Three times the size of the previous Crazy Taxi games, Crazy Taxi 3: High Roller brings the frantic arcade action CT players know and love to the bustling night-time streets of Glitter Oasis, a thinly-disguised Las Vegas. Players race the garishly illuminated strips, between brightly-lit casinos and labyrinthine desert back roads in the mad dash for cash that Crazy Taxi vets know so well.
Excerpt: Ever since the Sega Dreamcast, Hitmakerâ€™s Crazy Taxi has been one of the wildest and most addictive game franchises yet. With simple game play, wild and out of control fun, and just about everything else, Crazy Taxi became both an arcade and console hit. Hitmaker then brought Crazy Taxi 2 to the Sega Dreamcast, which added a New York based level with four new cabbies, keeping the game play intact.
Summary: Making adjustments to popular series is a double-edged
sword, you can stray from your roots and alienate fans of the original, or you
can become timid, rest on your laurels and become stale. Crazy Taxi 3: High
Roller seems to have done both, oddly enough. This game features 2 older
scenarios but, the real excitement comes in the new Las Vegas-inspired level.
Aside from this, the gameplay hasn't changed much, which isn't surprising.
Excerpt: When I play this game, I feel like I should be throwing quarters at my TV. The Crazy Taxi series has always been about short-term attention span goodness - driving a taxi like mad around large cities and pulling of a variety a crazy moves to get your fare to their place in time. This time around, Crazy Taxi 3 includes all that was good with the first two games and adds a new city and drivers plus a number of mini games.
Pros: Good, easy to pick up fun, Control scheme is easy to use
Cons: Doesn't look much better than Dreamcast versions, Uneven difficulty on Crazy X mode
Excerpt: I recently picked up the third installment of the Crazy Taxi
Series at the local video store and since been sitting at the television for
hours. I have never had the opportunity to play the previous 2 editions of the
game, so this review will be based on that; my first experience with the series.
It is highly likely that my review will enforce ideas and concepts that can be
found in all of the prior versions, but at this time I do not have ample
knowledge of that.
Conclusion: graphical upgrades. It looks almost identical to its original 1999 incarnation. Call me crazy, but after three years a graphical overhaul might have been advisable. (And what about body damage?) But at least it’s consistent – the cartoony look fits and it moves smoothly almost without exception. Probably CT3’s greatest asset is the choice to play under regular rules or in 3, 5 or 10-minute frames.
Excerpt: Racing games abound, and surprisingly few have a gimmick to make them stand out. Sega, innovator of genres for decades now, created the Crazy Taxi arcade game in response to that lack of creativity, yet exhibits some of that same staleness in Crazy Taxi 3: High Roller, for the Microsoft Xbox.
