Crazy Taxi is a score attack driving game released by SEGA in 1999, where the aim is to pick up passengers and get them to their destination before time runs out.
Gameplay is fast-paced and frantic. You ride in one of four yellow American cabs driven by either Axel, B.D. Joe, Gina or Gus. After stopping to pick up a passenger, you follow an arrow at the top of the screen towards their drop-off zone, building a bigger fare along the way with crazy drifts, stunts and near-misses. The fares when completed are added to the total earned, and you’re awarded a license at the end when time runs out based on how well you did.
Sequels would later include a range of locations inspired by major cities in the USA, but the earthquake-wracked streets of San Francisco provide the perfect inspiration for the original game’s roller-coaster excitement, as you fly at high-speed towards the bottom of near-vertical gradients. Featuring iconic tracks from The Offspring and Bad Religion, the West Coast, pop-punk soundtrack has the nitro energy to match the speed of the drive, and the bands’ sounds of relentless youth and sunshine freedom set the tone as you hurtle towards your next fare.
