  1. The original version is every bit as good, if not better than this new release, so only those PS2 owners who don't also own a Dreamcast will find this game worthwhile.
  2. The feel of the arcade makes a successful transfer into an exciting and forever entertaining game that teaches everyone to respect those time honored heroes: the cabbies.
  3. 80
    It's even the kind of game that you can put down for a month, pick back up, and it feels new all over again. However, it's unlikely to inspire extended gameplay; once you've beaten it, there really isn't much to keep you playing.
  4. 90
    Its excellent mix of driving techniques, fantasy physics, and gigantic cities will keep couch drivers burning onscreen rubber for some time.
  5. You might not find yourself playing Crazy Taxi constantly on the day you buy it, but you'll still be picking it up for a quick blast of arcade action this time next year.
  6. Total Video Games

    There is a vast collection of challenges for you to try, some simple, some stupidly difficult.
  7. After playing Crazy Taxi I had so much fun listening to the music that I felt I should’ve gone out and bought the soundtrack.
  8. Almost identical to the Dreamcast version. Like a 98% clone identical.
  9. An excellent, adrenaline pumping game that is nearly identical to its arcade and Dreamcast counterparts.
  10. A faithful port of a modern classic, down to its nagging flaws.
