play feel with plenty of fun to be had.
Additions over the arcade mode include more play modes and an entire new city to conduct

of the game.

Crazy Taxi has since been released on Game Cube, PC and PS2. Crazy Taxi 2 was released on
Dreamcast in 2001 and Crazy Taxi 3 was released on X Box in 2003.
