Crazy Taxi Crashes Onto PS3 And Xbox 360 This November

By Spencer . October 14, 2010 . 12:18pm

The second digital Dreamcast game is Crazy Taxi. If you missed Crazy Taxi it’s a score attack driving game where players race through a San Francisco-like town picking up and dropping off passengers to earn money.

 

This isn’t a perfect port of Crazy Taxi, though. Pizza Huts, Kentucky Fried Chickens, and Tower Records have been replaced with generic buildings. The good news is Crazy Taxi for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 is in HD with 720p graphics plus it has online leaderboards.

 

 

Crazy Taxi makes its digital debut on November 23 when it comes to PlayStation Network. An Xbox Live Arcade release is scheduled for the following day, November 24.

    OH nice and this seems to take advantage of the systems ability to be in high definition!

  • shion16

    it wont be the same without The offspring and Bad religion =(

    • Jellybit

      Ugh yeah… they’re essential. They removed them from the PC version, and it just didn’t feel as good.

      As long as it has custom soundtracks as is well for me.

      Removing any classic game’s original soundtrack is a bad move. Imagine Zelda, FF, or the old Sonic games without their soundtracks.

    Shenmue 1 & 2 please

      What made Shenmue good? It came out at a time where I was a neophyte in terms of non-nintendo gaming so I missed it? I think the main character was in Sonic & SEGA All Stars Racing, so I think I know how the main character of the game looks.

        High level character/ item/ environmental interaction, world felt alive with so much detail, day-night cycles where every NPC and shop went about on their own schedule following the clock by the hour, graphics were impressive, open world with lots of exploration, diverse gameplay elements throughout, upgradable fighting system, engaging storytelling, and much, much more. Both games were groundbreaking for their time and are still excellent games.Hope that answers your question. :P

      no thanks.

        And why not? Some of us have never played either and might like to know what all the fuss is about.

        • NeoTechni

          “And why not? ”

          Why do you think someone would prefer a game remain dead?

  • NeoTechni

    Please tell me it supports custom soundtracks on PS3. It’d suck that the PSP version has something the PS3 one doesnt.And why isn’t it 1080p? It’s not exactly pushing the bar graphically.

    Now how about Virtual On for PS3/PSP?

    • Yusaku_Matsuda70s

      Well at least it’s not like Sonic Adventure, which was just upscaled and kept the original aspect ratio. But yea, it could and should totally be 1080p.

    I want SA2. My stupid PAL GC version doesn’t have progressive. And I really feel like getting all those A ranks again… in progressive scan.

    Always hated Crazy Taxi (probably because I hated the fake mall-punk that was the soundtrack). Wake me up when they release Skies of Arcadia.

    Crazy Taxi was possibly the best Dreamcast game, it’s extremely well designed (even if it requires a “special move” to play longer than three minutes). Really nice.
