Crazy Taxi Free Download Unfitgirl I make no apologies for loving SEGA’s Dreamcast. It got me back into gaming and it did have some awesome titles. And among those greats was Crazy Taxi, a pedal-to-the-metal driving game that had tongue firmly planted in cheek. SEGA has revived Crazy Taxi, sort of, bringing the original to PSN and XBLA with 720p support. You take on the role of one of four cabbies, racing against an overall time clock to pick up and drop off as many passengers as possible. But just driving won’t help your cause at all. You’ll need to learn a few different moves, like the Crazy Boost (to speed forward) and the Crazy Drift (to drift, if that wasn’t clear). The various moves involve rolling your thumb across the drive and reverse buttons, which can quickly cause severe pain — but the kind of pain you can live with, because pulling off the moves is so much fun. The gameplay is untouched from the Dreamcast original and has all of the modes, including Crazy Box (completing specific challenges) and both the Arcade and Original cities. While playing, I was brought back to my younger days, when gaming was better because SEGA was still giving hope that new and creative titles were going to put a Dreamcast in every home. If you’ve never played it, Crazy Taxi is a mad dash of fun. There are dozens of eager passengers on the street waiting for a ride, all of them color-coded to denote the distance from their destination. The more moves you string together and the faster you get them there, the more cash you earn. And cash is what you need to be a world-class cab driver. UNFITGILR.COM SEXY GAMES
There’s almost no depth to Crazy Taxi, but that’s just fine. This is an old school arcade game, the kind designed for eating quarters. It can be addictive, even if it looks old and a bit run down and plays like something from your dad’s basement. I love Dreamcast games, but poor Crazy Taxi is starting to show its age. Though SEGA did made this “HD-ish,” it still doesn’t look very good on a large screen. Don’t expect some kind of beautifully detailed remake. This was made to play on modern TVs, but it wasn’t made to look very pretty. Looks, though, don’t really matter if you just want to sit down with an old friend. Oh, Crazy Taxi, it’s been so long. But one very important ingredient is missing that kills the nostalgia — which is really the only reason to spend any money on this outdated download. SEGA didn’t have any problems overcharging for this remake, but it didn’t want to spend any money to re-up the licensing agreement for the soundtrack. See, Crazy Taxi wasn’t just about driving fast, picking up fares, and then speeding towards their destination to earn a hefty reward. The music was a big part of what made Crazy Taxi special. The mix of songs from The Offspring and Bad Religion were as memorable and important as pulling off Crazy Drifts and finding new shortcuts. And even though I hate The Offspring in any other context, I absolutely loved them when Crazy Taxi was spinning in my Dreamcast. But there is no Offspring or Bad Religion. There’s just a bunch of crap little-known punk bands that have no business filling in for a pair of iconic bands.
Rarely can a soundtrack ruin a video game. But here it does. Maybe if you’ve never played Crazy Taxi before, you can still enjoy it for a little while. After all, you won’t know what you’re missing. Fans will instantly know what is gone, and losing the music kills half the reason to pick Crazy Taxi up again. Many have said that the success of Sega’s Dreamcast is tied to the quality of the company’s arcade games and, ultimately, the console’s ability to render those arcade games as closely as possible. Crazy Taxi is one of those arcade ports, and the Dreamcast version of the game holds up very favorably when compared with its arcade counterpart. The game is very simple you must drive around and pick up fares. Each of your fares will present you with a destination – be it a Tower Records, Kentucky Fried Chicken, FILA store, or Levi’s shop – and you’ll have to get there as fast as you possibly can. Get there in a real hurry, and you’ll get a time bonus. Take too long, and your fares will simply jump out of your cab, robbing you of any points they would have given you for getting them to the destination, as well as any points you might have picked up while they were in the car. Aside racking up your score by merely driving people from area A to location B, you also earn bonuses for performing combos. These combos are simple things, like weaving between cars without scratching up your car, jumping a long distance, or sliding around corners. When playing the game with the arcade rules, you must constantly pick up fares to keep your time from running out. There are also options that simply let you play for three, five, or ten minutes, giving you a slightly more relaxed game. Override 2: Super Mech League
Aside from the arcade city, there is an all-new city in the game. The new city is a nice touch, but it’s a little rough when compared with the first city. There’s significantly more pop-up and slowdown in the Dreamcast-specific city. The game also has a mode called crazy box, which serves as a sort of mission-battle mode and tutorial all in one. Early missions in the crazy box are simple tasks designed to teach you the game’s special moves, but later missions require absolute mastery of these moves, and can be a bit frustrating. Luckily, there’s no load time between attempts, so failing isn’t quite as troublesome as it would have been had you been forced to sit through a reload. The game is a bit light on options, and it would have been nice to see more modes that make you work toward a higher goal, such as car upgrades. A multiplayer option would have also been a welcome addition.The overall look of Crazy Taxi is what makes it stand out. The cars all look really great, as do the various buildings. What ties it all together is the breakneck speed of the game. The frame rate is usually smooth as silk, but it occasionally bogs down for what seems like no reason at all – independent of how many cars are onscreen or how far into the distance you can see. The game does have a bit of pop-up, but it’s rarely noticeable, with the exception of one large hill on the Dreamcast-specific level. The hill has a huge hole that fills in as you approach it.
As one of four taxi drivers
The game’s soundtrack is filled with songs by Bad Religion and Offspring, so depending on your personal preference you’ll either want to crank the volume up or turn the music all the way down. The rest of the game’s sound effects are well executed. There’s a lot of speech used in the game, and most of it comes from people on the street and the people you pick up in your cab. Unfortunately, your driver’s vocabulary is a little limited. The oddest cabbie phrase has to be “Shut up and move your butt,” which BD Joe seems to shout out from time to time for no good reason. While some may argue that Crazy Taxi sticks a little too close to the arcade model to have any real longevity, the replay value comes from the sheer fun of the game. The game has the same kind of universal appeal and pick-up-and-play mentality that made Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater a hit on the PlayStation. As such, it’s a must-buy for any Dreamcast owner. SEGA has a brilliant track record in arcade driving games. OutRun, Daytona USA, SEGA Rally, Hang On; many older readers probably have fond memories of dropping coins on quick races on games housed within some oversized cabinet complete with steering wheel and pedals… before subsequently emptying their wallet of many more coins as the phrase, “just one more go” was uttered countless times in front of an ever lengthening, tutting queue. Then in 1999, SEGA took the idea of driving fast against the clock, replaced the linear race track with an open-world city and Crazy Taxi was born. Paradise Lost
And it was fun; a lot of fun. Careening around sprawling networks of roads in a (for some reason, open-top) taxi while attempting to pick up and drop off as many customerrs (and thus rake in as much money) as possible before the timer reached zero was an endearing concept that saw many Crazy Taxi arcade cabinets gobbling up huge quantites of coins. In 2001, SEGA and Acclaim Studios Cheltenham brought Crazy Taxi to the GameCube. The core gameplay remains as entertaining as it ever was. The taxis all handle in the manner you’d expect them to in a game that demands snap decisions on which route to take or whether or not you should try that risky short-cut you spotted last time, with games rarely longer than ten minutes. This doesn’t sound like an awful lot, but Crazy Taxi has always been about repeated attempts at memorising road layouts and customer locations and scraping a few more seconds and dollars together in each go, accomplished by performing near-misses with traffic and executing manoeuvres like dashes and drifting. This is fine if you only plan to play in short bursts, but extended play reveals the inherent shortcomings in incorporating Crazy Taxi’s philosophy into a home console game. The main issue here is that of content, or lack thereof. Crazy Taxi on GameCube is actually a port of the Dreamcast version of the game, which had an extra city for players to race around as well as the Crazy Box; sixteen minigames designed to help players practise the aforementioned advanced driving techniques.
In recent years
The GameCube version also features this content, but offers anyone who played the Dreamcast version to death absolutely no additional extras on top of the new city and minigames. And in a game that was already criminally low on content for a console title anyway, that’s just not on. Repetition will rear its ugly head in no time unless you limit yourself to an hour or so a day, which wouldn’t be the case had SEGA and Acclaim taken the time to craft a handful of GameCube exclusive cities and additional minigames. The depressingly blatant “that’ll do” approach permeates every facet of Crazy Taxi on ‘Cube. Presentation-wise, the game hasn’t undergone any visible polishing. The graphics are still vibrant, clean and do the job adaquately, but Crazy Taxi was once used to show off the Dreamcast’s processing grunt, whereas the GameCube is capable of substantially more, so the lack of any visual upgrade is disappointing. More music would have been a good move as well. Everything included suits the pace and vibe of the game brilliantly — although how much you’ll enjoy it depends wholly on your opinion of mid-Nineties era Bad Religion and The Offspring songs — but there’s just not enough of it and even if you’re a fan of both bands you’ll probably tire of the paltry selection of tracks pretty quickly. Your best bet is probably to mute the TV and crank the volume up on your tunes of choice. Sega’s fantastic arcade game Crazy Taxi was released at the height of their confidence, when they were at their cockiest and best. Parasite In The City
I remember so well when I ordered the game, as soon as the Dreamcast version was released in Europe in the spring of 2000. Once I got the game, it did not leave my console for months. Even though I was never really interested in a single car game, I could not put it off. I drove lap after lap around the arcade city, made some inroads into the sadder but more challenging console city, and managed, after lots of hours and enough swear words to fill a whole set of South Park movies, even of the Crazy Box challenges. Crazy Taxi combines an extremely fast-paced gameplay, where it is important to take customers to their destinations continuously before time runs out, with an equally fast-paced gaming experience. As a car game considered, it is very scaled down. You can shift to drive or reverse, and accelerate or brake. But with just those basic movements, you will not get far. Crazy Dash, which is performed by switching to reverse for a brief moment, releasing the throttle and then both throttling and shifting up at the same time, is an absolute requirement to get anywhere in the high score lists. Crazy Drift is also useful but mostly for shining and picking extra points. Then there are also special maneuvers to go faster backwards, something I, on the other hand, never understood. there have been a lot of games where we have to drive like crazy through populated cities and smash our way through traffic and various props, but Crazy Taxi was pioneering on that front when it came.
And the chaos is still very nice, albeit technically limited. After a short learning period behind the wheel again, I scoop on almost as well as ten years ago and it’s fun, very fun. But at the same time, I can not help but notice all the small deteriorations. Most obvious is of course that the soundtrack has been completely replaced. The original songs ARE Crazy Taxi. It feels a bit like playing a copy when I no longer hear Way Down The Line as I whiz along a highway with a hysterical aunt in the back seat. Instead, we get a set of generic skate rock, which may be technically of the same quality but not at all the same explosive tempo. The advantage is that both versions of the game support their own playlists, so if you really want to, you can always rip your Offspring discs and drive that way. Then I note that the sound is not loud, which is especially clear if you turn off the music. It crackles, roars and sounds generally damn good. The mix is lousy, and crashing noises, angry car horns and rattling fences flying all the way around the world overwhelm everything else. Did it really sound that bad? I start the Dreamcast version and run them every now and then. And no, it’s much worse now. In addition, I notice that the voices have changed. Gena, which has always been my favorite driver, does not sound as cool as before and many of the charming passengers are completely redone. The next change is the licenses. It may be hard to imagine now, but once upon a time it was cool with in-game advertising.
