    Taxi Chaos feels almost shameless in cloning Crazy Taxi's idea and it's lost some of the game's attitude (mainly due to a forgettable soundtrack) in the process, but it ultimately delivers an entertaining experience and a gameplay formula we've missed for a long time, with some nice additions like the city's verticality and the passengers side stories.

    Taxi Chaos is a fun, flawed game that takes a lot of inspiration from Crazy Taxi, but does genuinely improve upon the formula in impressive ways. Freeroam allows players to learn the city to do a better job in the arcade and GPS-less modes, while having NPC fetch quests keeps things fresh and further rewards exploration. The available car selection is hit or miss, but most of the vehicles are fun to use and allow you to have a blast while darting around NYC. The soundtrack and voice work need work, and with post-launch updates planned, we’ll see how all of the issues related to the audio work out in due time. Taxi Chaos needs more polish, but still offers a lot of fun and it’s a must-play for anyone looking for a more modern-feeling version of Crazy Taxi.

    Taxi Chaos is a pretty faithful and enjoyable recreation of a fondly remembered gaming franchise, but its new ideas introduce lots of new problems.

    As much of an ode Taxi Chaos is to Crazy Taxi, the experience feels incredibly lightweight and unfulfilling thanks to understocked options as well as the quickly tiresome nature of it all. More vehicles and characters are needed to spruce up the gameplay, as well as new locations and passengers who don’t repeat the same few lines over, and over, and over again. All told Taxi Chaos has the ingredients to be a really cool Crazy-Taxi-aping jaunt, but unfortunately this one is worth little more than a squirt of ketchup and mustard in both eyes from one of New Yellow City’s hotdog vendors.

    And in the case of Xbox specifically, it's really hard to find a reason why you'd pay that kind of money when Crazy Taxi is backwards compatible on the platform, and can be picked up for significantly less. That's not to take away from the work that's been put into Taxi Chaos, because it's a competent enough take on the formula, but SEGA's 1999 original has more content, more attitude and a better soundtrack, so it's hard to recommend this one.

    I liked it. Nothing too complicated about it, and it's just a fun racing game if you think about it.

    Love the cars, Colors, handling of the cars - but -something feels missing.
    We all remember and appreciate Sega`s design of the Characters
    Love the cars, Colors, handling of the cars - but -something feels missing.
    We all remember and appreciate Sega`s design of the Characters and especially their Crazy map with up and downs, jumps and action, and that in mind makes TAXI CHAOS a little bit disappointing. The main problem is the boring City Map, nothing really stands out, no real eyecandys or wow-sightseeing spots, just another 08/15 City map like we see everyday driving to work. The Day One Patch added some life and passengers to the before slightly lonely streets, over 10 new rocksongs. I also tried the Switch Version (lots of pop up ) and Im glad to see its plays and looks a lot better on Xbox (Series X) . In total - Good fun for a quick game 15-30min, gets boring quick. I really wish they would add at least 1 or 2 more maps. Just one City is not enough for a 30$ game.
