  • Summary: The first game from Sega's development houses to reach the PS2 is almost an exact port of the wild ride that is already the crown jewel of the Dreamcast.

  1. 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.
  2. A faithful port of a modern classic, down to its nagging flaws.
  3. There is a vast collection of challenges for you to try, some simple, some stupidly difficult.
  4. An excellent, adrenaline pumping game that is nearly identical to its arcade and Dreamcast counterparts.
  5. 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.
  6. Almost identical to the Dreamcast version. Like a 98% clone identical.
  7. A mediocre port of what can already be considered an old Dreamcast game. But on the other hand, it's a port of a good fun game, with the ever-important gameplay still intact. Crazy Taxi on PS2 is still a gut blow of fun.

    I had originally played Crazy Taxi for PC, but decided to try it for PS2 and it goes without a shadow of a doubt that it's just as fun and wild on PS2 as it is on any system. Expand

    This game is a pretty fun game, with its crazy feeling when you play it... It is kind of hard to explain for me. The game had a decent amount of replay-ability, but it could've been better if they changed up the game each time you play it for a more exciting experience, but sadly, it is the same. Despite that flaw, the game is a entertaining classic that I recommend to everyone who likes racing/car games! Collapse

    Crazy Taxi is fun...the first couple of times you play it. However, the lack of content makes the game lose its entertainment value after a while. Still, its fun and worth the occasional play. Expand

    Gets boring... even more boring than I thought this classic arcade-to-Dreamcast-to-PS2 phenomenon would become. Everyone knows that you can't play a game like this for long stretches of time before putting it on the top shelf for a few months and then rediscovering it. What surprised me, though, is that after only about a week of play I found myself totally uninterested in even fully learning the nuances of driving tricks, or the details and shortcuts of the two cities. I just got frustrated and sick of the game. In its defense, I found none of the slowdown or technical issues that most reviewers complained about, so that alone shouldn't sway a purchase. It's a fun and innovative arcade game that is unquestionably worth a rental if you've never tried it before, but in the end I was sorely disappointed. Expand
