  1. One of the best video games ever made.

    Just a plain and simple port; nothing worth noting has been added. [Jan 2002, p.85]

    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.

    The GameCube controller responds well, and both the silly speech quips and the Offspring punk tunes sound great.
  5. The game is simple, elegant and everything that a "game" should be: fun.
  6. It wears on you after a while, but for new players, you have a lot of passengers to pick up before you get jaded.
  7. 76
    The short sessions ensure you grab as many pedestrians as you can, but, like an arcade game, you get bored of it quickly, and wouldn't play more than 15 minutes at a time after the novelty has worn off.
  8. A solid port of a great arcade game that does not get fudged in the translation.

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. Full Review »
