Crazy Taxi – Consumer Guide

Chi Kong Lui's picture

According to ESRB, this game contains: Mildly Animated Violence, Strong Language 

There are a few troubling areas for parents to note. First is the somewhat disturbing language coming out of the mouths of some passengers. Many of the younger passengers will let out a few minor profanities here and there during the course of a spirited ride. Dont be surprised when you hear an old granny or reverend yelling "you suck" or "that was one helluva a ride" either. Secondly, while theres no blood and pedestrians cant be run over, the game does encourage a reckless sense of driving with total disregard for human life and property. The fast and furious action is all in good fun, but some may not agree. I leave that for the parent to decide.

Dreamcast owners looking for the next must-own hit of the system should not pass on Crazy Taxi. Its everything the media is hyping it up to be and more.

Time-constrained gamers constantly burdened with work or a busy social life will appreciate how quickly one can pick up the game and play through a couple of rounds without a huge commitment of time.

Driving simulator faithfuls should be warned that Crazy Taxi is not realistic by any means. The developers have lightened the physics incredibly in order to make speed consistent throughout the game. These sim fans are better off with titles like Sega Rally and Gran Turismo 2.

Conversely, fans of arcade-style racing games who arent concerned with realism and prefer titles like San Francisco Rush or Midtown Madness will love Crazy Taxi.
