Driving Crazy Taxi
If you've ever wanted to drive a taxi like a crazed fool, Sega is "on duty" with its next game.
Gamers interested in Sega's newest arcade workings, as well as those looking towards future Dreamcast ports, might want to check out the new web site devoted to Crazy Taxi, which runs on Sega's Naomi arcade hardware.
Crazy Taxi is a driving/racing game, which requires you to pick up passengers and get them to their destination by any means possible. There are no preset ways to get to your destination, so any and every available alley, street, cafe, rooftop, lawn, and shopping mall is fair game. Crazy racing action aside, your goal is to make as much money as you can while getting your fares to their destinations.
Numerous real-life franchises (FILA, KFC, Levi's, Pizza Hut, and Tower Records) make an appearance in Crazy Taxi, adding an authenticity to the game that already sports some amazing graphics. Since it runs on the Naomi board, a pixel-perfect home conversion can be expected, just like House of the Dead 2. The same artist responsible for the visuals for Sega's Top Skater game created character designs and other artwork for the game. Anyone interested in this promising game should check this link:
