They replaced a great licensed soundtrack with one that is dull and generic, the screen resolution maxes out at 1280, and the game -- for some odd reason -- doesn't offer analog control. It's the original Crazy Taxi, but worse.

You may think you want to replay this great old game, but this isn't the version you're looking for.

Still a pretty great game as long as you mod in the original music. The new soundtrack is pretty bad and Crazy Taxi needs the Offspring to be playable. I would love to see a new port of Crazy Taxi 2 as that was a superior game.

This game is everything a bad PC port could ever hope to be. A quick break-down:

+Increased draw distance from other versions. Very nice!
+No HD textures, but improved filtering on PC helps a lot.
+Runs well, no more slowdown as is present in console versions

-No analog support. Acceleration and steering are either on or off, even with an analog stick.
-The digital steering isn't very good, either. Crazy drift is practically broken on a keyboard.
-The configuration menu only saves half of the specified settings
-Need to make registry modifications to get controller/resolution settings to work
-Doesn't work in full screen mode, regardless
-There are only 4 supported resolutions, topping out at 720p
-Severe audio mixing problems -- SFX volumes are all over the place.
-Original soundtrack was replaced with some REALLY UNFITTING music.
-Different voice actors! Somehow even less enthused than the originals.
-Sound clips for all voice actors and announcer are EXTREMELY low quality
-Audio clips are now spammed like crazy. Expect to hear "Taxi!" until your ears bleed.
-UI elements are very blatantly untouched. Extremely grainy/low-res, even at 720p.
-All identifiable buildings, such as KFC, Pizza Hut, and Tower records, have been removed.

So, in a game that's positively regarded for well-done arcade-style gameplay and control, a fantastic soundtrack, and a slick visual style, this port managed to achieve...well, almost one of them. The UI looks very bad, but the actual game behind it holds up fairly decently. Also, a quick search for 'Crazy Taxi PC Soundtrack Mod' will give you a way to restore the original soundtrack. The terrible audio mixing will still hamper your ability to enjoy it, though.

This really isn't worth your time for anything more than a dollar or two. Pick up a dreamcast emulator and play it that way. It's a pain to configure, but at least you'll get analog steering. How SEGA thought it would be okay to release a game that revolves around weaving a taxi in and out of traffic at top speeds without any fine degree of control is beyond me.

Great game, but I'll stick to my Dreamcast Copy. It's just not the same without the original soundtrack :/

This game's pretty monotonous and stupid. It's also a lot of fun. Perfect for a 20-minute-session after a long day at work.
Run over people, play with taxi physics that make no sense at all and reach your destination before customers angrily jump out of your cab (even if you're currently at the bottom of the ocean.)

I give this 4 out of 5 derps.

Hey hey hey it's Crazzyyyyyy Taxi!!!
A great game to pass the time, this compilation that is for sale on STEAM not own the original songs from DREAMCAST version, but the game is all there!
Run like crazy to get their passengers to their destination on time and do some crazy moves in traffic to get an extra tip.
The game itself is not very long, are actually only a few missions, but the game is fun to play in ARCADE mode or against the clock, pick up your passengers and "RUN FORREST, RUN"
