Due to restaints, they can't have the Offspring or Bad Religion featured on this port. And a lot if not all the stores have changed (FILA, KFC).

And the controls feel different. Maybe the Gamecube version is just that good.

Crazy Taxi needs no introduction; I've lost a gigantic slab of my life to the game, and I'm about to lose even more. The simplistic, arcade value stands the test of time, and is sure to remain a classic forever.

Warning: Prolonged exposure to Crazy Taxi may result in risky side effects in real life, like weaving through oncoming traffic just to earn precious tips. Though Crazy Taxi limits your doses to one, three, five, or ten minute exposures at a time, it’s easy to develop a habit of hitting the replay button for one more shot at earning a class-S license

The goal of Crazy Taxi is to pick up passengers and drop them off at their destination, but it’s everything in-between that earns this game its fitting name. From the moment your passenger enters the cab, you’ll be off like a shot, narrowly missing other cars and taking extreme jumps to earn a little extra scratch. And by scratch, we mean money, not damage– your car is completely indestructible, so don’t worry about the paint job.


As you try to beat the clock, you’ll plow through outdoor furniture and other vehicles, causing mass chaos. You can’t run over the pedestrians, though, which separates Crazy Taxi from more violent vehicular simulators like Grand Theft Auto 3 and Carmageddon. Crazy Taxi is all in good fun, but don’t expect these insane driving skills to translate harmlessly in the real world.

In addition to the highly addictive main modes, you can easily spend an extra hour or two on the Crazy Box mini-missions. Nine are available to start, with seven more that can be unlocked as you play. My favorite minigame is bowling, where you have to knock down seven sets of bowling pins with your car, but i also enjoyed the obstacle courses, and a highly challenging four-minute race that doesn’t even give you a directional arrow to follow.

I also appreciate the level of feedback you’ll get after completing each mission. In arcade mode, you’ll watch your rank rise from 99th place as you pick up and drop off passengers, and then you’ll receive a class license ranking.

(IN THE ORIGINAL VERSION)
As you drive, you’ll have a very limited musical selection. Two bands, The Offspring and Bad Religion, provide the soundtrack to the game, and you’ll hear their same few songs many, many times until you decide to play your own mp3s. While the punk songs are energetic, at least a few of them have unusual themes for a driving game, like global overpopulation (“Ten in 2010”) or the cycle of abuse (“Way Down The Line”).

Whatever man play this only when you really want to have some insane fun.
I mean it.

I truely wish there was a neutral button.

On the one hand the gameplay is still amazingly fun. Easy to learn hard to master - classic golden era Sega goodness. Still as fun as it was back on the dreamcast and PS2. The port is solid, as there is not that much you could possibly upscale with the very cartoony look of Crazy Taxi and the controls work just fine once you get used to it. Nothing you play for hours on end but a surprisingly influential title you will come back to again and again.

The major negative is the exclusion of the original soundtrack which has rightfully gained somewhat of a cult following of its own. It's not that the new songs are awful, they do their job somewhat alright-ish, but they are so staggeringly bland and generic it's almost fascinating. A baffling achievement that had me scratching my head with all four limbs. The older PC port had the advantage of custom soundtracks which alleviates this problem, the steam version however uses a strange audio format that even as a sound designer I have never encountered before. Truely a shame.

Another distraction from this fun little title is the price at this point. Even as part of the dreamcast collection it is totally overpriced. Wait for a sale if you can get past the new soundtrack or just turn it off completely and put in some Offspring and Bad Religion.

As long as you remember the PC version of Crazy Taxi doesn't have the well loved soundtrack Crazy Taxi is known for, this is still worth the buy.

Buy Crazy Taxi on steam, but then go buy the classic soundtrack and run it through Steam as you play.

HEY HEY, YOU RADSTERS: IT'S CRAZY TAXI! I Have Always Loved This Game, And Frankly I Still Love It. It's So 90s That It Deserves To Be In A Museam; It Give You A Tubular Refresher Of The Time That Was. As Much As I Love This Game, However, This Port Lost Some Of The Soul. Places Like KFC And The Levi Store Were Replaced With Generics Stores, And Bad Religion And The Offspring Is Not Blasting In My Ears: My Favorite Part Was Always Being Greeted By "All I Want", With The Iconic "YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEEAH!". I Do Really Miss It, Because While It May Have Been Product Placement, It Made This City Feel More Real, Like It Wasn't Just A Crazy Perversion Of San Fransico, But Like A Real And Crazy Coast City. Regardless, If You Loved The Original, Or Just Want Some Radical Times As A Happening Taxi Driver, You Should Get This: HAVE A TUBULAR TIME!

AMAZING CLASSIC. Playing this on pc is the best graphics i have ever seen on this game. And i have been around sense the beginning. Sells would go through the roof.....If after all these years, it became online. I talk to all my friends and they all agree. The graphics are spot on. It doesnt lag one bit on my alienware 17. FULL CONTROLLER SUPPORT. Amazing. The gameplay is just like it has been for all the years sense release. I have ran into no bugs.
Now we all agree that there needs to be a online. That does NOT mean make a new version. q-bert already shows that, that is a fail. Just add ONLINE. Its like remaking forest gump with a black guy.

I bought this game just to write that it's not worth buying without the original soundtrack, as well as learn what the disappointing replacement soundtrack is during the end credits. But I also learnt that the PC version of this really sucks, especially when you're playing on a keyboard. So, refund time for me.

This game isn't recommended on PC, but I recommend you get it on one of the original consoles (Xbox, PS2, Dreamcast) Hell, it's available on iPad/iPhone with the original Bad Religion/Offspring soundtrack and the gameplay is much better than this.

But overall, you could say that the original soundtrack is...
ALL I WAAAAANNNTTT

No Offspring soundtrack, controls are digital meaning no precise turning or accel/brake which is REALLY detrimental to gameplay, widescreen is stretched rather than scaled, almost all those real life brand name shops have been replaced with generic things - buy the DC, PS2 or GameCube version instead.

Apparently there are unofficial fan patches to fix the inputs and the music, but I think I'll stick to the other versions.

Aah, Crazy Taxi, il classico di una quindicina di anni fa! Chi se lo ricorda all'epoca?
Io no, mai giocato, perciò dopo averne sempre sentito parlare ero curioso di provarlo.
Allora, io non so se sia esattamente identico a com'era, ma in ogni caso il port non rientra nella mia top ten dei migliori port su PC di sempre.

Tanto per cominciare, i comandi: *credo* di aver visto un menu per cambiarli al primissimo avvio, ma poi basta, più riuscito a trovarlo da nessuna parte, probabilmente si è auto-disinstallato. Comunque, su tastiera fanno pena, si usa WASD per tutto meno che per guidare normalmente, e se avete un pad 360 è davvero il caso di usarlo, se non altro per riuscire a giocare.

Riguardo al resto, non è un gioco troppo complicato. Ci sono due modalità, Arcade e Original, ognuna con una sua grande mappa specifica, in cui fare soldi scarrozzando in giro i clienti (verdi = più danarosi ma da portare più lontano; rosso = viceversa; gli altri colori stanno in mezzo) e guidando come un matto per guadagnare ancora più soldi. Tutto qui, in base a quanto guadagnate ottenete una valutazione, e that's it, il gioco base è questo.
Poi però ci sono le sfide Crazy Box, che chi le ha pensate non stava benissimo con la testa, specialmente con questi controlli. Ma, cosa più assurda, è necessario padroneggiare tecniche di guida che non vengono spiegate da nessuna parte nel gioco, perciò si deve guardare una guida per sapere come eseguire le derapate, i testacoda, la partenza turbo e quant'altro. In ogni caso, con un po' di pratica e fortuna le si riesce a superare, ma alcune rimangono davvero troppo frustranti.

Frustrazione che si sente anche giocando normalmente, visto che ci si imbatte in un sistema di collisioni degno di un gioco anni '90 (lel), in cui è impossibile prevedere cosa succede sfiorando di un pixel uno qualsiasi degli altri veicoli che ci si parano in mezzo alla strada mentre stiamo guidando a velocità folle. Sul serio, è impossibile, gli urti spesso sfidano ogni legge fisica, le auto si incastrano di lato nelle pareti, si cappottano, ci fanno rimbalzare via in direzioni casuali... a vederlo è spassoso, ma se state cercando di fare un buon punteggio o un buon tempo, ogni urto può potenzialmente rovinarvi una run, e se state facendo una delle sfide di cui sopra, ancora peggio (e i veicoli non sono mai fissi, sono disposti random ogni volta, perciò non è raro trovarsi varie ambulanze che ingombrano le carreggiate e buona fortuna a passarle via). E gli altri guidatori sembrano pure tutti ubriachi, cambiano corsie a caso, hanno l'auto parcheggiata in diagonale a bordo strada, si avvicinano una all'altra se gli state passando in mezzo, cose senza senso del genere.

Ma tutto sommato se vi fate prendere e lo considerate per quello che è, senza badare troppo alla programmazione ballerina, finisce con l'essere abbastanza divertente e cazzone, anche grazie alle ottime canzoni rockeggianti che fanno da sfondo alla vostra guida spericolata.

-NOTE: As of September 15th, 2014, this review has been updated. Addendum at the bottom.-

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.

September 14th 2014 Update:
I've left the original text in place to keep track of any improvements this game receives in the future. I'm actually quite pleased it was updated at all, and a few of the initial problems were fixed! Namely, the following:

+The game now has an FXAA option! Not exactly the best AA, but hey.
+No longer need to tweak registry settings to adjust options!
+The game's configuration menu was completely replaced, and supports 1080p+ resolutions, including nonstandard ones. It now works on my 1200p monitor, and fullscreen at that!
+Sound clips were normalized to all be at a reasonable volume level!
+The interface has been updated, and will reflect keyboard bindings!
+Keyboard controls have been reworked a bit, and are now just about playable!

Combined with the fact that you can mod the original soundtrack into the game, the biggest complaints are that the analog steering/acceleration still suck (still digital input), and the crazy drift is still far too touchy with keyboard controls to actually complete any of the challenges easily. There are still minor quibbles like UI resolution, announcer/driver sound quality, the lack of branding, and so on and so forth, but none of them are nearly as game-breaking was what has been fixed.

If this game continues to be updated, pretty soon that thumbs down will turn to a thumbs up. As it stands, the game doesn't control well enough to justify purchasing it. Here's to hoping for one more patch!

Anyone looking for a bit of nostalgia will be pretty dissapointed.

I am not really a fan of The Offspring / Bad Religion, but their soundtrack perfectly suited this game and has sadly been removed. Not only that, but many of the real world destinations (Pizza hut & KFC) have been replaced with generic stores.

TIme to dust off the old dreamcast.
