My Review
------------------------------------------------------------------------
	I highly recommend this game for anybody who can find it.

Gameplay-10/10-It's not one of those games where once you beat it, it's game 
over.  This game goes on and on and on until you either run out of time or get 
tired of it and leave.

Challenge-3-10/10-Depending how the service guy sets it up, this can be anywhere 
from a morning walk to a real challenge.  Personally, where I play it, it's set 
on the hardest 'cause everyone always gets high scores.

Variety-8/10-Not a lot to choose from.  You can choose from 4 drivers, each with 
an ability better than the others.

Overall-10/10-A really great game made by Sega, Ltd.'s AM3 department that 
displays good 3D graphics and fast processing.

How to Play
------------------------------------------------------------------------
	Pretty obvious.  You go around picking up people with a cash sign above 
them.  Make sure you stop very close without hitting them for more time to 
deliver.  Depending on the service guy, you get 40-80 sec. to start off and a 
difficulty setting of 1-8.  After picking them up, you have to drive them to 
their destination(duh).  The number on their head is the time you have to get 
them there, so if they have to run to your car, you get less time, plus they 
yell at you.  You can also get tips for reckless driving, as seen below.  Green 
customers go the farthest and pay the most, while Red ones go the shortest and 
pay the least.  I think Red ones are to lazy to walk.  There are 4 ratings for 
you if you get there.  Speedy-You get a 5 sec. time bonus and a high five.  
Normal-You get a 2 sec. bonus and a "Thanks".  Slow-You get no bonus and they 
yell at you or throw dust at you.  Bad-No bonus or payment.  The arrows point 
where to go.  They don't always point the shortest route.

Techniques
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Crazy Dash-A boost of speed that gets you going at top speed after a stop if you 
do it right.  If you want a high score, you'd better do this with 95-100% 
accuracy.  To do it, come to a stop. Let go of both pedals.  put the stick in 
reverse.  Then put it in drive and almost immediately floor the gas.  No tips 
from people for this, though.

Limit Cut-A boost of speed while you're in motion. As with the Crazy Dash, you 
must do this 95-100% accurately.  While driving, let go of both pedals.  Do a 
quick reverse-drive with the stick and almost immediately floor the gas. No tips 
for this either.

Crazy Backdash-Same as Crazy Dash, except backwards.  You can live without this 
one.  While stopped, do a quick D-R and almost immediately floor the gas. No 
tips either

Crazy Through-Weave in and out of traffic.  Gets you tips.

Crazy Drift-A power-slide that gets you around sharp turns.  Must do with at 
least 80% accuracy.  Never do on a shallow turn.  While hitting the gas do a 
quick R-D and turn. Gets you BIG tips.

Crazy Jump-Drive up a slanted surface to jump. Gets you tips.

Crazy Stop-Stops you quickly. Very useful, but you don't need it.  Let go of the 
gas, put the stick in reverse and almost immediately floor the brake.  No tips

Bicycle-Gets you a bike with a cart in back.  Best of everything(turning, 
braking, etc.)  Also gets bounced around the most.  It's the same for everybody, 
so you only need to pick who you like.  Also, when you pick someone up, if you 
nearly hit them or stop too far, they won't yell at you :).  Before you start, 
put the coins in(duh), but DON'T press Start.
Step on both pedals and hold them there.  Press Start. Highlight your driver. 
Shift into drive.  Release the pedals.  Then shift into reverse.  Then Press 
Start(DO NOT step on the gas or brake).

Tips
------------------------------------------------------------------------
	Always stick with a color group until the end.  If you start off with a 
red or orange, the only green one you should pick up is to go across the 
freeway.  If you start with a yellow, light green, or green, the only red you 
should see is to get to a green one.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
