  1. One of the best video games ever made.

    While Electronic Art's blatant clone, "Simpsons Road Rage," has much improved graphics, a two-player mode, and free ride option, Crazy Taxi still comes out ahead in pure controllability and gameplay.
  3. It wears on you after a while, but for new players, you have a lot of passengers to pick up before you get jaded.
  4. As good a game as it ever was. If you've never played it before, then now is an ideal time to take the plunge.

    With only two major cities to explore and nine mini-games it still feels like an arcade game...[but] an awesome game if you didn't play it on previous systems.

    Lots of thrills and hills. It just doesn’t have the character and control that the Simpsons game has. [Jan 2002, p.130]
  7. 40
    Crazy Taxi’s voices used to be fun...They’ve been replaced with some flat, bored-sounding clips that don’t come close to the original’s amusing, quotable lines.

The Gamecube version is solid and the gameplay, visuals and music all remain the same after all these years. I picked it up for a low price and I do enjoy it. Good, arcade fun. The only issue I have found with the game is that sometimes before or after you pick up a fare, the car may not accelerate. This has caused me to lose lots of time. It's a little clunky and takes some finessing, but overall, it's Crazy Taxi, a classic arcade gem that must be in your collection. Expand

    This is not one of the "best video games ever made". It's fun and enjoyable, but it's a 5 or 6 out of 10.
