Storyline

An arcade game where you first select a character of four drivers and their cabs, each of whom has slightly different attributes: Axel is the well-balanced cab choice, Gina has the best acceleration/deceleration and braking, B.D. Joe has the fastest floored speed but least controllability, and Gus has the heaviest cab, enabling him to drive well off-road and even onto most oncoming traffic. Then you drive a taxi cab through a virtual San Francisco. 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!

Trivia

In an attempt to save themselves from bankruptcy. Sega sold the rights to this game to Activision in 2001. This led to the somewhat odd situation of a high profile Sega game being released on consoles not developed by Sega while Sega was still trying to sell the Dreamcast to consumers. See more »

crazy action
2 May 2000 | by See all my reviews

This game is excellent as it looks, feels, and sounds like a really exhillarating mad drive around the city as you pick up passengers, get them to their destination in the shortest time possible using whatever means necessary, such as bending the traffic rules, smashing through cafes, boxes and wreaking havoc in parks, and drop the passenger off and receive your fare and perhaps some bonus tip. Crazy Taxi is pretty crude and weird as weel, such as when a passenger(specifically an old granny)gets impatient in the cab, says:" Oh, you lousy driver, you suck!", and jump out of the cab while the cab is still moving at high speeds. But on the overall, its really hilarious and fun to play. If you own a Dreamcast and love crazy action, get the game now.
