No Pizza Hut, Tower Records Or KFC In Crazy Taxi

imageCrazy Taxi, the arcade game and the Dreamcast version, had real world destinations like Pizza Hut and Kentucky Fried Chicken to drive to. These and the licensed music from punk band The Offspring won’t be in the Dreamcast returns digital re-release.


Those locations have been swapped out with generic destinations like a pizza parlor and fast food chicken restaurant in the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade version of Crazy Taxi. Sega carried over the content edits from Crazy Taxi: Fare Wars, a PSP port of Crazy Taxi 1 & 2, to this version of Crazy Taxi.


Sorry, if you were expecting a perfect port. Outside of the content cuts, Crazy Taxi, the Dreamcast Returns release, handles like the same Crazy Taxi released ten years ago.

    I’m okay without the Pizza Hut, but some of the licensed music in-game was pretty catchy, even if it isn’t what I would listen to normally. The loss of that is a bit sad.

    YA — I mean, NO NO NO NO NO NO.

    • MisterNiwa

      I’m sad.

    Its all good as long as it supports in game soundtracks.

    Whatever your music tastes, the original soundtrack really suited and added character to the game, and while I’m hardly as a series fan, I do have found memories of this on my Dreamcast back in the day. It’s a little sad new players won’t experience the ‘same’ game.

    I hope they worked out a proper licensing deal for the music in Jet Set Radio.

    I’m not really upset that they took out Pizza Hut and KFC and the like, but I hope you can have your own soundtrack since they’re changing that. Crazy Taxi just doesn’t seem the same if I can play that Offspring song.
