    04/12/2011: Finished up what ever I didn't take care of the first time and
    summited it to GameFAQs.
    
    01/13/2013: Never thought I'll touch this guide again.  Anyway, I made some
    minor edits to this guide and that's it.  I've also noticed that as I was
    about to close the Notepad (what I used for all of my guides on) had the
    incorrect game for what topic to use when you're trying to talk to me about
    this game.  Don't asking me how this has gone unnoticed for less then 3 years,
    because I'm not sure myself.  This has been corrected.

    Hey Guys, welcome to my next guide in my series of works.  As you can tell
    from my user name, my name is Gamer364.  This guide is designed to help
    players get all of the achievements (or trophies for PS3 players) in this
    game.  The game seems very easy to beat, but Crazy Box will make you want to
    rip your own hair off, and the controls can get some getting used to (the
    latter beginners only).  To the best of my knowledge, this game originated
    from the Arcade machines, but it first popped up in a video game system known
    as the Dreamcast.  Speaking of the Dreamcast, if you happend to play Crazy
    Taxi on that system before, then you shouldn't have too much trouble with
    Crazy Box mode because you might have already beaten it before.  I would go
    into more detail with this game if I wanted to make long intros on you guys,
    and I know you came here for the guide, so I better get on with the guide
    already.
    
    Note: There are a few of awards to get in this game as well, but as far as I
    know, it's for Xbox 360 players only (all of them are Avatar Awards).  If your
    playing the system mentioned, then see Part 5 for details.  PS3 players need
    no apply unless updated otherwise.
    
    Warring: This guide can and will contain spoillers.  I will do my best to not
    spoill stuff from the game, but sometimes it just can not be helped, so read
    at your own risk.

    Achievement/Trophy difficulty (on a scale of 1 through 5, 5 being the
                                  hardest): 3
    
    Number of Achievements (Xbox 360): 12
    
    Number of Trophies (PS3): 12
    
    Least amount of playthroughs to get all Achievements/Trophies:
    9 (4 Arcade Mode, 4 Original Mode, 1 Crazy Box)
    
    Number of Missable Achievements/Trophies: 0
    
    Details: As mentioned before, this game is an easy one, but Crazy Box can and
    will give you a hard time.  If I based the difficulty on Crazy Box alone, it
    would have gotten a 5.  Likewise, if I based it on the Licenses alone, it
    would have been a 1.  I made it a 3 though, because they both balanced each
    other out (sort of).  The reason for 4 playthroughs Arcade and Original modes,
    is because the Licenses don't stack, so you will have to hit between
    appropriate amounts of money for each playthrough, each mode and no higher.
    Thankfully, I know the amounts you have to stay between for each License rank,
    and it'll be mentioned for the approptiate achievement/trophy.  Otherwise, all
    you would have to worry about is getting an S-rank License for Aracade and
    Original modes and Crazy box mode.  The Licenses are still easy to get though,
    so it's a minor setback for 100%.  For some reason, if you somehow get ranks
    higher than S, you won't get credit for the S-rank License.  My best guess, is
    that you are way too good for this game, and Sega decided getting credit for
    the S-rank licence and below was not going to happend.  I wouldn't worry about
    that though, because it's impossible to even get close to $9,999 in this game.
    
    Update: A long time ago, I've managed to get past $9,999 quite a few times and
    I once saw a Youtube video puting up an impressive run on the game (I don't
    remember the exact count, but it was way more than $9,999.

    Crazy Box Achievements/Trophies
    
    A. Skilful driver
    Description: You have cleared 1-1 through 1-S of Crazy Box.
    Achievement Points: 10G
    Trophy Color: Silver
    Guide: Refer to Crazy Driver for Details.
    
    B. Superb Driver
    Description: Clear 2-1 through 2-S of Crazy Box.
    Achievement Points: 20G
    Trophy Color: Silver
    Guide: Refer to Crazy Driver for Details.
    
    C. Amazing Driver
    Description: You have cleared 3-1 through 3-S of Crazy Box.
    Achievement Points: 30G
    Trophy Color: Silver
    Guide: Refer to Crazy Driver for Details.
    
    D. Crazy Driver
    Description: You have cleared Special 1 through Special Stage of Crazy Box.
    Achievement Points: 40G
    Trophy Color: Gold
    Guide: The Description for this should have said "Clear S-1 through S-S of
    Crazy Box" because that's what you have to do for this one.  You unlock S-1
    through S-S after beating 1-1 through 3-S.  Anyway, for the first
    achievement/trophy (which Sega **** up the grammer for this one) is easy
    enough, so don't worry about that too much.  The second achievement/trophy can
    be a bit tricky, but nothing too hard.  2-2 and 2-S will you a hard time
    though.  The thrid achievement/trophy however can a bit hard.  3-1 and 3-S
    will give you a really hard time, but you'll beat it eventually.  To be honest
    I don't know which mission is harder between the two.  Then we have the
    Special stages.  All but S-1 will give you a hard time.  For all of these, you
    don't have to hit number one for all of them, just beat every last one of
    them.  Once you have beaten the S stages for Stages 1, 2, 3 and Special,
    you'll unlock the appropriate achievements/trophies.  You have four cabbies
    you have to pick from (Axel, B.D. Joe, Gena and Gus), but it has no effect on
    the Crazy Box minigames, so pick who ever you want (I went with Axel
    personally).  If you are having trouble, refer to this guide below.

    I. Arcade A-license
    Description: You have got A class license in Arcade mode.
    Achievement Points: 15G
    Trophy Color: Bronze
    Guide: Refer to Original S-license for details.
    
    J. Original A-license
    Description: You have got A class license in Original mode.
    Achievement Points: 15G
    Trophy Color: Bronze
    Guide: Refer to Original S-license for details.
    
    K. Arcade S-license
    Description: You have got S class license in Arcade mode.
    Achievement Points: 20G
    Trophy Color: Bronze
    Guide: Refer to Original S-license for details.
    
    L. Original S-license
    Description: You have got S class license in Original mode.
    Achievement Points: 20G
    Trophy Color: Bronze
    Guide: You need to get the appropriate amount money to unlock the
    achievements/trophies, and go through each mode four times because as
    mentioned eariler, licenses don't stack.  Otherwise, everyone of these
    licenses are easy to get.  You need to get between the following amounts for
    the apporpriate License.
    
    $2,000 - $2,999 = Class C License
    $3,000 - $3,999 = Class B License
    $4,000 - $4,999 = Class A License
    $5,000 - $9,999 = Class S License
    
    You can choose to play by the Arcade rules or you can go on 3, 5, or 10 minute
    runs to get each of the licenses.  It's easier to go on 3, 5, or 10 minute
    runs though.  For the C class licenses, you will need 3 minutes, though you
    can bump it up to 5 if your having trouble.  For the B class licenses, you
    will need 5 minutes, though you could bump it up to 10 if your having trouble,
    or even bump it down to 3 if your feeling lucky.  For the A and S class
    licenses, you will need 10 minutes, though for the class A licenses, you could
    bump it down to 5 if your feeling lucky.  With the A class licenses, once you
    reach anywhere between $4,000 and $4,999, don't pick up anymore customers.
    It's very easy to go over $4,999 in 10 minutes, I know, I done it a few times
    when going for the S class licenses and when playing for fun.

    Note: As mentioned in the Intro, This stage only applies to the XBLA version
    of the game (as far as I know).
    
    A. Vintage Crazy Taxi Tee
    Description: Show off your style with this Crazy Taxi throwback. 100% Soft
    wasged cotton for that vintage look.
    How do you get unlock it: Play the game for 5 hours total.
    Guide: You'll get this as you go for the other achievements, unless you are
    good and lucky enough to beat it in 2 or 3 hours, so don't worry about not
    getting this too much.
    
    B. Axel's Hawaiian Shirt
    Description: Show off your style with this vintage Crazy Taxi throwback. 100%
    authentic, guaranteed.
    How do you get unlock it: Play the game for 10 hours.
    Guide: Refer to Gena's Leopard Print Tank for details.
    
    C. Gena's Leopard Print Tank
    Description: Show off your style with this vintage Crazy Taxi throwback. 100%
    authentic, guaranteed.
    How do you get unlock it: Play the game for 10 hours total.
    Guide: You most likely not get this by the time you get all the other
    achievements, unless you are really struggling with the game (mainly with
    Crazy Box), so this will be a bit of a grind.  If by the time you get all the
    Achievements, but you don't have all of the awards and you want them, I
    suggest doing 10 minute runs each time for the most time possible.  You could
    also play by the Arcade Rules for the time if you want.  I would have told you
    to just wait it out in the Pause menu, if you get counted for the time you
    spend in that menu.  However, for some stupid reason, you don't.  In theory,
    you could do this in Crazy Box mode and select 1-1, because of the lack of
    time limit, but I'm not sure if the time you spend in Crazy Box mode counts or
    not.

    *                         Part 6: How to Contact me                          *
    ******************************************************************************
    
    You have 2 Main ways of contacting me:
    
    1. Send me an E-mail
    2. Send me a message on my Gamertag on X-Box Live
    
    My E-mail address: shadowjohn91(at)yahoo(dot)com.
    My Gamertag is Gamer364.  This can be done only through a text message.
    
    E-mail or Message me if you:
    
    A. See a spelling error: I may have made spelling errors as I was writing
    this.
    
    B. Have a question that needs asking: You may have something that needs
    clearing up or something to that affect.
    
    C. Have a correction to make: I'm not 100% sure on some of the stuff mentioned
    though out the guide.
    
    D. Want to use my guide on your website: I personally have no problem
    letting you use my guide on your website, as long as you ask me first, and you
    give me credit for it.
    
    E. Think you see someone using my guide without permission: I don't like it
    when people steal my stuff (at least, not without asking me first).  I don't
    do it to other people (at least without giving other people credit for the
    idea), so why do it to me anyway?
    
    F. Have something to add-on to this or that/there's something I forgot to
    include: If there something you think I should have included, but I didn't,
    you are encouraged to send me an Email for this or that.
    
    Do note that if you do decide you want to message me, make sure if the topic
    is about Crazy Taxi.
    
    As of right now the only sites that have permission to use my guide:
    A. GameFAQs (I have an account with them, so they don't really need my
    permission.)
    B. Neoseeker (They have advanced permission)
    C. SuperCheats
    More to come (maybe).
    
    Don't even think about email me if you are going to send me:
    A. Hate Mail
    B. Spam
    C. Name Calling mail
    D. Barely readable/Unreadable mail
    E. Mail with mostly creative words (if you get my drift)
    F. A letter of criticism
    
    Letter A I take offence to, because I don't send hate mail to no one.
    
    I have a Spam safeguard with yahoo, and it'll tell me if I have spam or not
    with Letter B.  Also, if I think your trying sending me spam on Xbox Live,
    don't think I won't write a complaint about you, and/or tell Microsoft on you.
    
    With letter C, I also take offence, because I get name called in school.
    
    Letter D, If your sending me an E-mail, have spell check available to you and
    you’re not sure of your spelling, then why not use it?
    
    Letter E, Unless I messed up that badly, there's really no reason for that
    anyway.
    
    Letter F, You can send those kinds of letter, as long as I don't find offence
    to it.
    
    All of these things can and will make me think your a bad person, when in
    reality your probably not.  All in all, just don't do it.
    
    Follow these rules, and if you add-on and/or correct something, I'll give you
    credit for it.
    
    Note: Don't get discouraged if I don't answer you right away.  Sometimes, I
    might be on the Computer and sometimes I'll be on Xbox Live.  Your best bet
    is to send both an E-mail and an Xbox Live message.  That way if I don't get
    one of your messages, I'll still be able to get the other message.  Even
    then, I might still not get your message right away.
