About

Crazy Taxi is the renewed version of arcade machine title of the same name that was released in 1999. It’s a taxi driver simulator. The goal of the game is to deliver passengers to their destinations, performing numerous tricks. The game also features 16 mini-games.

Crazy Taxi follows the classic mechanics of score games: you need to get from a passenger as much money as possible. In the beginning you can choose a driver and a car; their stats are quite similar with slight differences in speed and turning. To raise your tips you need to reach the destination on time. To earn extra money you can perform multiple tricks, including drifts, jumps, near-misses, and combos of these moves.

Driving through the city isn’t that easy as it seems to be. There are numerous obstacles in your way, such as frustratingly slowly buses, that make you take risks during your maneuvers on the road. Moreover, the amount of potential passengers is limited: once you pick up a person, it’s unavailable for the rest of the game.

Crazy Taxi (1999) reviews and comments

After jumping on in the game, the first thing that you'll do the next is pick up an NPC and take them to their destination, find another one and repeat forever and ever, the challenge is that you have a timer that keeps going down, you'll earn some time every time you "deliver" an NPC to their destination, the faster the better. So Crazy Taxi it's a pretty straight forward arcade game, and is up to you to decide when to quit it, this version has a mode in which you can complete several challenges, like jumping certain distance with your car, they're uninteresting, to say the least, but after that, is only you and your ability to deliver NPCs. The controls are OK, but it has an awful reverse system that works more like a real car and also has some delay, so it gives you a lot of annoying moments.

Crazy Taxi can be fun if only for brief minutes, maybe if you're an arcade lover maybe you'll find some worth in this game, but definitely is not for everyone and it can be boring pretty quickly.
