Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Simple touchscreen controls
For a ported game, the controls are very simple. There are 4 buttons - one for drive, one for reverse, and one each for left/right steering. Double tapping on the drive button launches you off with very high acceleration, and double tapping the left/right buttons starts a drift. These controls are simple, and very easy to get used to.
Pro Original music brings back nostalgia
For a port to hold onto it's music licenses is pretty much unseen now a days but luckily Crazy Taxi still has all of the original tracks found in the Dreamcast version (featuring music from Bad Religion and Offspring).
Pro Mini-games add more content to the game
Mini games such as taxi bowling adds more to the game, and helps justify the $5 price for an old Dreamcast port. In total, there are 16 of these mini games.
Pro HID controller support
Crazy Taxi supports all HID controllers, such as the PS3 and XBox 360 controllrs.
Pro SHIELD games support
Crazy taxi has built in SHIELD games support.
Pro MOGA controller support
Pro Fun maps to drive on
There is an assortment of locations to drive in
Con Graphics look dated
Considering that the game is fifteen years old (as of 2014), the graphics do look a bit dated when compared to other high end games on Android. These graphics are untouched direct ports from the Dreamcast.
Con Very touchy controls
Tapping on the steering buttons is a janky affair. One quick tap turns your taxi a lot, and it can be very hard to control your driving using the touchscreen controls. Thankfully, there are other options - in the settings you can change the controls to tilt which is a bit better although sometimes not sensitive enough - or if you have a MOGA controller you should probably use that as it's closest to the original joystick controls.
