Description official descriptions

Crazy Taxi 3 serves up more of the classic gameplay that made the series so popular on the Dreamcast. High Roller takes place in "Glitter Oasis" which is modeled after Las Vegas. You take the roll as one of 4 new drivers and you must try to deliver as many customers as possible to collect huge fares.

Crazy Taxi 3 also includes reworked versions of the original 2 levels from Crazy Taxi and Crazy Taxi 2 -- West Coast and Small Apple each with their respective drivers. Also included is Crazy X mode in which you play through a slew of minigames for when you don't feel like tackling the main game.

Average score: 3.7 out of 5 (based on 24 ratings with 1 reviews)

A new, but very old game.

The Good
They brought back the first two levels from the old Crazy Taxi games, (S.F. and N.Y.). Four new drivers were a welcomed change and the Crazy X mode is totally tricked out! And that's if you don't feel like playing the main game.

The Bad
They kept most of the old music, which really sucks because I only like 1 song total out of all of them. Plus, there is no secret characters or levels to unlock and no real storyline to the game except for getting the customer from point A to point B which is getting really old.

The Bottom Line
A total waste of money! Only buy if you loved the first tow installments of Crazy Taxi or if your going to be a cab driver when you grow up.

Which Crazy Taxi version is best? ›

I think the Gamecube and PS2 versions kept the original tunes, but don't quote me on that. Plus, I seem to remember some technical issues when playing the PS2 version.
