what keeps me away from a 10 are the tracks... the new tracks sucked, and ended up making me keep replaying the same old track from crazy taxi 1. However, being able to jump and everything in the old tracks is great!!!!

Crazy Taxi 3 seemingly incorporates three different games in one. You can play on the maps from both Crazy Taxi and Crazy Taxi 2, as well as a brand new Vegas-themed level made for this game. The newer maps do add some variety and some added difficulty, but where this game shines is in the original.

One thing that I want to point out is this is the last release of this title that is a near arcade-perfect translation of the first game. This means all the songs (Offspring, Bad Religon) and all the logos (Pizza Hut, KFC, Levi's, etc.) that you loved seeing or hearing in the arcades is in this release. Newer versions, i.e., the recent re-release on disc or XBLA, have dropped these recognizable elements, most likely due to expired license rights or to get away from paying royalties. The gameplay is the same in both cases, but that little extra bit of nostalgia seems to die without these touches.

The only real change in gameplay is that you now have the ability to pick up groups of passengers instead of one at a time. Picking up groups is a good way to earn a ton of cash, but you also lose that cash if you don't drop everyone off in the group, which adds a bit of extra strategy to how you'd normally play.

Also included with this game is a series of challenges meant to test your skills and knowledge of special moves, such as the Crazy Dash and Drift. Some of these will be downright impossible until you can master certain moves, but the learning curve to get there can be a little steep for some gamers.

All in all, if you've ever played Crazy Taxi anywhere and loved it or even just liked it a little, this is a solid title. I can't really give it a purchase recommendation for anyone other than die-hard fans of the series because the gameplay can get a bit repetitive after a while.

Definitely worth the rent!
