One of SEGA’s Best Mobile Releases to Date
When I got Ristar’s SEGA Forever mobile port last year, gameplay was slow, the saving system sucked, and the ads were unbearable. Now with Crazy Taxi, I see SEGA Forever has improved greatly. The game doesn’t lag a bit, not sure about saving but I’m guessing it’s improved, and, thank Yuji Naka, you don’t get an ad each time you touch the screen. Aside from SF’s improvements, the game itself is great and fun to play. You get to choose the difficulty of your next job, the music is great (of course it is, it’s SEGA), and it has a ‘90s charm to it. I may not have been alive when this came out, but still, it feels like I’m playing GTA San Andreas but better (and not nearly as gory). Overall, 5 Stars, and I didn’t even rate it that to get featured, honest. Now I’m just waiting for the Sonic 3 & Knuckles mobile port by Taxman and Stealth. Yeah, that’s right SEGA. People still want that.
Finally, a good mobile port from SEGA
When SEGA first started porting their classic games onto mobile they were riddled with imput lag and ads, ads everywhere! Naturally, I was a little skeptical of this one, but when I played it, oh man it felt good! There weren’t as many ads and imput lag was nonexistent, it was classic Crazy Taxi action from start to finish! It was a true Crazy Taxi experience, and I was very happy to play it. Good job SEGA, you made a good port on mobile for once.
Oh ,The Nostalgia!
This game takes me back. I had in on Dreamcast and then years later played the Xbox 360 version (but that version didn’t have the original songs). This mobile version has all the original songs. Love it! The only thing that isn’t great about the mobile version is you can’t really drift because of the controls on the screen. Or at least I haven’t mastered it yet.
I used to play this game non stop as a kid on my sega Dreamcast! I’m stoked to see a mobile version! My only request is because it is so frustrating beating the crazy box last challenge to complete the arcade map in 4 minutes the prize should be a big truck with a giant plow on the front to ram through all the traffic! Just a thought! I would also love to see crazy taxi 2 on here!
Ages changed problem?
Anyone having an issue where when you open up the game it says ages change restart app and I didn’t know what this meant I restarted my phone and nothing worked the only way I could fix it is if I delete the game and reinstall it anyone have any other suggestions otherwise great game
This game is perfect the way it is. But only 2 things I wish I could move the control stick I just hate pressing the button and I wish I could move the camera! I’m gonna give it 5 stars because I love crazy taxi every time I’m playing with my dad and he wants to take a nap I’ll play around of crazy taxi and after it’s done I’ll wake him up!
Great arcade game, one issue
I absolutely LOVE this game for how fast it is, it’s a great substitute for when I can’t play the arcade version. Now there’s just one small issue with the game and that’s the sound, instead of it coming out of the speakers it will come out of the ear piece of the phone. This makes the game quieter than it should be and to make things a bit worse, sometimes the sound will switch from speaker to ear piece. I hope that this can get fixed soon so that I can enjoy this game to its fullest.
Ads Ads Ads (Edit)
It's a fun app and really does do well to capture the essence of the arcade/Dreamcast classic. However I paid for the app to get ride of ads and they still pop up each time I start the app. It's very frustrating, especially because my young kids enjoy playing the game. -after the developer response I have become more okay with the adds. I thought all adds would disappear but now I know it was only the third party ads.
Fantastic but SOUND PROBLEM
Used to play this game on the Dreamcast for hours and I love that it’s now available for iPhone! There is a problem with the sound however. Even on the loudest setting, the sound comes out of the earpiece instead of the speaker. The ads come through the speaker, but not the game. It makes it super quiet to listen to. Even when you put in headphones, it still comes to the earpiece. Can you fix this?
I’ve been playing this game for almost eight years. It was a game I grew up with and enjoyed. Unfortunately, a really annoying part of it is the adds. They pop up and are sooooo annoying. I want Sega to fix this. Other than that, it’s a really fun game and it’s not too complicated. Games such as this, “Subway Surfers”, “Geometry Dash” And “Minecraft” are the games that my brother and I grew up and still continue to play sometimes.
Needs iOS 13
I see other people being able to play with their iOS 13 update and are able to play on their ps4 or xbox controller, but I’m not! I connect my controller through Bluetooth to my iPhone and go into the app. Instead of it saying press A to start it still says tap the screen.. I really hope you reach out to me so I can be able to play like I want to! Thanks.
Fun game but app is glitchy
So I just tried playing it for the first time and all went well, then I completely closed the app for a few minutes and then reopened it to play again and it keeps giving me an error or something saying, “Age’s changed, please restart app”. And the only way I’ve figured out how to fix it is to delete the app and re-download it. It only starts glitching out after I try opening a second time. I’ll download the app, open it and play, close the app, reopen it, then it won’t work again until I delete it
Used to be a fun game
It took way too long to get into the app. I don’t know if it is any good anymore or not. I had not played it in a while so I clicked on the game. The first thing it did was ask for my iTunes password. No. Then it made me answer about 10 questions about how I wanted to play. Then, once I got past all of that, it slapped me in the face with a full screen ad before it would even let me see a single frame of game play. DELETE! I will now never know if the game is as good as the last time that I played it. It was fun before they got so ad happy (but not fun enough to deal with the frustrations of starting the app). It also doesn’t help that internet access is absolutely REQUIRED to play. Got this for my ipad that does not have cellular. If I am not at home I cannot play. It makes me wonder what kind of info that sega is secretly stashing away about me while I play. Thanks SEGA for ruining a good experience.
Wish it was the XBOX version.
This game is good. I just wish it was more like the XBOX version. I liked in that version how the driver could pick up more then one person at a time. And I also liked that there was more worlds to drive in. Still this is a good game. Please update this app. I just tried to open the app and got a message saying. This app may slow down your iOS device. The developer needs to update the app. I don't get this message on apps that were updated recently only apps that have not been updated in a while. Please remove adds. In 2015 when I found this game I had to pay to get the game. And for a while I’m getting adds with this game once and a while. And now the game won’t start. Please update the game.
