TAXI CHAOS! That may be the title of a recreation simulating the expertise of loitering in a Newcastle taxi rank at 4AM drunkenly nursing a tray of tacky chips, and if it was, we might undoubtedly be extra enthusiastic about it than we’re about this recreation which is only a Crazy Taxi clone.
If the sport had been good we might maybe be inclined to name Taxi Chaos a homage to Loopy Taxi but it surely’s not, so we can’t. We’ll go along with “shameless rip-off” as a substitute. Taxi Chaos is to Loopy Taxi as Creed is to Pearl Jam, and when you’re not sufficiently old to grasp that reference then you definately’re in all probability not sufficiently old to suit into the goal demographic for this recreation.
Here is the gist: when you beloved Loopy Taxi on Dreamcast and you have ever thought, “Man, I want someone would simply make this recreation once more solely with out the soundtrack or the attraction and with out making any discernible enhancements to the components,” then this recreation goes to be proper up your alley. Actually, we have got the Loopy Taxi nostalgia, and there have been a few moments enjoying Taxi Chaos when our rose-tinted spectacles had us grinning.
However then cooler heads prevailed. We take our reviewing significantly right here at Push Square, and that is why we slapped these nostalgia goggles from our faces and gazed upon Taxi Chaos within the chilly mild of day with a vital eye and the decision was clear: Taxi Chaos is a dated, boring, charmless fare-’em-up, with barely sufficient content material to see you thru a business break.
You drive and choose up a fare. Then you definitely drive and drop off the fare. For some cause your taxi can soar. The faster you get your punter to their vacation spot of selection the extra factors you get after which after 90 seconds the session ends. Then you definitely do all of it once more and attempt to get a greater rating. There’s totally different taxis to unlock and a few characters to play as and that is just about all there’s to it.
If all you need is a facsimile of Loopy Taxi you can play with out dusting off your outdated Dreamcast then Taxi Chaos nearly suits the invoice. However that is all it does. For anyone coming into this with out the advantages of nostalgia or more cash than sense, Taxi Chaos is only a boring arcade driver with treasured little to supply apart from the doubtful pleasure of chasing a excessive rating. Ship this one to scrap yard.
