In Crazy Taxi, you play a cabbie in an accurate yet comic version of San Francisco.
As you might expect from such a game, your job is to identify possible customers in the crowd (known as “fares”), pick them up and get them to their destination as soon as possible.
That’s the Taxi part. The Crazy part is that traffic laws, pedestrian safety and property damage are all negotiable.
Simply put, the game rewards offensive–rather than defensive–driving, and that’s what makes it so compulsively fun.
Also, unlike most race games, there are no traditional boundaries or predetermined tracks for you to follow. The game allows you to follow your own best way… even if that means driving over fences or under water.
