🌀🌀Nostalgic for the Dreamcast🌀🌀
Sega, shut up and take my money! I love you so much for releasing this amazing Dreamcast port! Please give us a Dreamcast successor in the near future. ➡🌀🌀⬅
I just updated this app and it still works flawlessly! If you're experiencing the app crashing, I'd suggest deleting the app and re-downloading it. Close all apps running in the background and reboot your device. Please don't listen to the iPhone 5 owners; unfortunately the best iPhone is the iPhone 4S. I usually sport the latest iOS and latest iPhone, although I believe the iPhone 5 and iOS 6 are immense downgrades! I'm content with the iPhone 4S and iOS 5.1.1; no complaints so far!
You have the option to add your own music if you want, although one the main selling points is the original soundtrack "The Offspring". Also, it has vibration (iPhone only), like the Dreamcast Jump Pack; the best!
This is the only 5 star rating I gave this year because it deserves it! I like how you have something, that its not suppose to do, and it just does it very well! I guess its how this game makes me feel and it makes me love it so much as well! I was wondering how the user interface would be attainable on iOS and Sega achieved it very well!
My iPhone 4S app collection is now complete, thanks to my beloved Sega! The price is the same for a Starbucks Triple Caramel Macchiato, although it's worth every penny! Get it now while it's CALIENTE (HOT)! 🔥🔥🔥
My Favorite Game of All Time!!
Ok like the title said it is my favorite game and I was a little apprehensive getting it on my iphone because of that. When I got the game it had everything the Dreamcast version had Original mode which is great because Arcade mode is all I thought they would have had, but they have everything even all the crazy box levels. The only thing they don't have is adjustable time and traffic, That's honestly the only thing missing but Original mode is my Favorite level. Everything was great but the lag, it was slow but still very fun and getting used to the control took a couple times. Well I went to buy the game and to my surprise it was on sale, so I got another game Sonic CD and I was so happy and I still saved two dollars and even more (six dollars) if you include sonic. Then the next day they updated the game, now it is PERFECT. It is very fast and crazy... I Love Sega!
Not too bad. A classic indeed.
This review is in two parts:
1. The game itself
2. The iOS port
1. The game itself:
Overall, I like Crazy Taxi. The game is fast-paced, but I feel that the game can get a bit hard at times, especially in arcade mode. You definitely feel crazy when taking the driver's seat, and you get crazy money from driving recklessly and dropping people off. Luckily, for the short-term memory, arrows point you in the direction you need to turn. It makes for a good break for whenever you're riding the bus or something.
2. The iOS port:
OK, here's where things get interesting. I've experienced my small share of crashes, and the controls actually feel a bit finicky at times. However, I feel that this was well done, despite some issues, so I'm happy it's in the shape it is.
Final score: 4/5
