Hey guys it’s Sam and FINALLY I have access to Sammwak once again! Sorry I haven’t posted one post in WEEKS, it’s just that my computer has broken down with a disk boot failure! :O I apologize, but I thank you for understanding! But luckily, I’ll be able to don my sister’s computer for the time being.
Anyways, let’s get to the juicy stuff. Today’s post is about Crazy Taxi, one of the most fun racing games of the late 90s. In this game, you are tasked to drive passengers to destinations as quick as possible, such as KFC or Popcorn Mania. Yes, you WILL get into some mad traffic, but the faster you get there, the more money you rack up. We just downloaded the trial of the game a couple weeks ago, and you only get about 3 minutes of playtime there. I don’t wanna salvage every second no more. I want to get to the real deal. But here’s a special bonus. You know Sonic & SEGA Racing? If y’all hasn’t seen that review, click here!
Well one racer is named B.D. Joe, and he actually originates from Crazy Taxi! Yes, Sega was one of the publishers for the game, alongside Activision and Acclaim. And if you manage to maneuver through some cars, you receive a Crazy Through which boosts up your money. And also, you can have a little fun driving at people and watching them scream and jump for cover. Oh, and the faster you reach the destination, you receive these ranks: Speedy, Normal, and Bad. At least, those are the ones I’VE received. The better the rank, the more cash you get. But anyways, if you manage to get this game, here are some achievements you can aim for:
Over the River and Crazy Through the Woods – Earn your first Crazy Through. (15 BP)
Speed of Sound – Drive 5 passengers to their destination at a Speedy rank. Don’t sweat it. (20 BP)
Normality – Drive 5 passengers to their destination at a Normal rank. (20 BP)
Undersea Underachiever – Last at least 10 seconds underwater with or without a passenger. Don’t worry, you’ll live! (15 BP)
A for Achiever – Aching for another achievement? Score an A class license to get this appealing achievement! (20 BP)
B for Ballin’ – Is your best just not good enough? Don’t sweat it. Hit a B class license, and you’ll get this for all your trouble. (20 BP)
C for Crushing – You’re crushing the Crazy Taxi! Destroy, drive, and destroy, and win a C class license already! (20 BP)
D for Dynamic – Okay, you’re wrecking the taxi. Score yourself a D class license before your dents end up paying rent. (20 BP)
S for So Fail! – Are you a true wrecker? Wreck up the Crazy Taxi so bad, that you receive a S class license! Yeah, it’s that bad. (20 BP)
This game has also spawned a couple of sequels: Crazy Taxi 2, Crazy Taxi 3: High Roller, Crazy Taxi: Catch a Ride, and Crazy Taxi: Fare Wars.
So, I guess that’s all I have to say now. Bye.
