Summary

Essentially more of the same with some fluff attached!

The Good

I guess everything that was good about Crazy Taxi is included here in the sequel - great graphics, good songs, good sound, fast intense gameplay. It's all there.

The Bad

Added is the ability to make the taxi jump. "Jump?!?", you say? Yes that's right, just like Sonic. This allows the taxi to get over certain buildings and negotiate traffic with ease. My opinion - a load of crap! A poor attempt to add something new to an already great formula.

The Bottom Line

So you would ask, if the only major new feature was a load of crap, what does that make this game? Well there's essentially nothing wrong with this game, but the problem is that there was nothing wrong with the first game. I see little here to make me want to play this sequel over the original. Bah!
