Crazy Taxi Classic
by: SEGA • 35.9K
Crazy Taxi is one of the most played games in arcades. Despite it's not as old-school as Street Fighter saga, it's quite difficult to find out there a guy who hasn't ever played this late-arcade (and Dreamcast) success.
Sega of America is now giving us the chance to play Crazy Taxi from our mobile devices. Does this port make sense? Definitely: Crazy Taxi perfectly fits into mobile. It features a fast-paced and casual gameplay. Pick customers on your taxi and give them a fast and risky ride to the destination. The faster and riskier you get there, the more cash you'll earn. Run over anything on the way.
In Crazy Taxi, the end justifies the mean, dude.
Crazy Taxi features three different game modes: Arcade, Original and Crazy Box (stunt mode). You can choose playing by arcade/original rules or perform work for 3, 5 and 10 minutes. That's what I meant with a format that perfectly fits mobile. Pick'n'play gameplay.
Graphics are simple yet neat and polished. Exactly as you remember them in the arcades / Dreamcast versions. You can choose the control scheme: touch (left/right arrows, go forward / back) and tilt. The game runs overall smoothly even on medium-end devices.
Although I'm personally missing the social layer (online multiplayer mode, global leaderboards...) which would strictly make Crazy Taxi a mobile native title, the rest of features fulfill the expectations put on the port of this classic.
Go pick the next one up!
