"Very fun, very crazy!"
One of my first Dreamcast games I got (well since I was celebrating my birthday on the 24th, even though its on the 31, I got my DC then). One thing is that this game is really crazy. Its also a very good arcade port of the original, almost true to it, almost. One thing I don't like is that the people run too slow to the car, so stop as close to them, just a tip.
This game really shows that the Dreamcast is a really powerful machine for games. It does slow down when you have a bunch of cars and people on the screen at once. Very little pop-up going on here, which I hate pop-ups. The cars in the game (yes, even the traffic) are very detailed and the people are too.
Sound / Music 8/10
Very good voice acting, especially when the pedestrians curse at your crazy driving. The music is pretty cool at first, but gets old after a while, so after that, just turn the music down.
Very responsive control in a game. The car turns when you want it to turn. The thumb pad on a DC is really responsive. But one thing is that when the game slows down, it gets really frustrating to control the taxi.
Hey, it might be an arcade style game, but that's what their for, a very good thrill in a short amount of time. Thats the number one reason I like arcade style games, just try to beat your score.
It gets quite challenging as you turn up the diffilculty. The cars get faster and the people want to get to their destinations quicker. Try getting a high score on the highest diffulculty score, or try beating one of the employees at EB's score of 23,000.00
This is a really fun game to play for a quick thrill.
