Your goal is to try and earn big cab fares, by picking up any customers and dropping them off at their destination spots as fast as possible before you run out of time! However, beware: most customers are a little crazy. Expand

    Taxi Chaos might be a shameless knock-off, but it at least has the distinction of being a fantastic shameless knock-off. Taxi Chaos does what SEGA don’t.

    Is Taxi Chaos going to blow you away? Of course not, but it is pretty decent. You won’t care for its soundtrack, its visuals won’t wow you, and its handling is as simple as can be. Blasting around New Yellow City while picking up passengers and dropping them off at their desired locations is fun though, while pro mode is highly rewarding for those who learn the ins and outs of the game’s map. So, if you’re after something to scratch that Crazy Taxi itch, Taxi Chaos may well be of interest to you.

    Taxi Chaos is like the usual knock-off. At first, it might look and feel the same as the quality product it was fashioned after, but when you get to know it better, it turns out to be just a cheap copy of the original (cheap not in the way of its price because this costs a whopping 30 bucks, mind you). ”But wait”, I hear you cry. ”What if I have never played Crazy Taxi, could I enjoy Taxi Chaos then?” I’m afraid I can’t answer that question because I simply can’t turn off my sweet memory of Crazy Taxi (that I can return to any day, thanks to the backwards compatible X360 version of the game!).

    For anyone who’s never heard of Crazy Taxi, Taxi Chaos will be a good enough racing title that’s fine for a quick pick-up-and-play experience. For everyone else, this near-duplicate ride likely won’t be worth the cab fare.

    An utterly pointless spiritual successor to Crazy Taxi which adds nothing new to an ageing arcade game and somehow manages to remove what made the original so playable in the first place. A missed opportunity to improve or update the gameplay renders this instantly moribund.

    Whether you have nostalgia for Sega’s Crazy Taxi franchise or not, Taxi Chaos by Lion Castle Entertainment is a hard sell. The game is a poor attempt at mimicking a classic IP in the hopes of bringing the formula to a new audience and fails to capitalise on any of the elements that made the original experience so fun to play in the first place. Taxi Chaos lacks any flair in the gameplay, visuals or audio department, while turning the once entertaining concept into an exercise in boredom.

    Taxi Chaos is a shameless copy of Crazy Taxi, soulless and developed by people who lacked not only creativity and skill, but also the understanding of what made the original great. [05/2021, p.67]

    Sadly, Taxi Chaos is not good, but it's not that bad. We all miss Crazy Taxi back in the days, but Taxi Chaos isn't enjoyable after hours.

    Taxi Chaos tries to amp up from the legacy of its distant predecessor Crazy Taxi. Although it does feel a little more modern on the driving,Taxi Chaos tries to amp up from the legacy of its distant predecessor Crazy Taxi. Although it does feel a little more modern on the driving, the charm just isn't here, with customers constantly sharing the same exact conversations with you again and again. Along with that annoyance, what little content there is to do is hidden in a mess of a city with random quest collectibles and no map whatsoever to determine where anything is or even what constitutes north and south. This is one of the most crudely designed driving games I've ever played, and with that in mind comes as no surprise that it's buggy too. It feels as barebones as it is overpriced, and what's with these taxi cabs that can jump 20 feet in the air? Expand
