Crazy Taxi 3 AU

Crazy Taxi 3 is the somewhat maligned final numbered entry in the Crazy Taxi series.

The game takes some of the maps from the first two games and throws in the new Vegas-inspired map, Glitter Oasis.

Koshiro also provided the game’s soundtrack. Players create their own monsters and use them to compete in events across the island.

Crazy Taxi 2 changes the location to New York City, home of the crazy cab driver and adds the new “Crazy Hop” manoeuvre. It’s not exactly a content rich sequel, but it’s just as fun as the first game.
