The game is set in an open-world. In addition to the featuring of the locations used in the previous games, Cray Taxi 3 also showcases a new location. These are the West Coast from Crazy Taxi, Small Apple from Crazy Taxi 2, the new location of Glitter Oasis. The new location is supposed to resemble Las Vegas and so it also mimics the traffic density of the city. However, this load of traffic also proves to be a nuisance at certain points during the game. The drivers are also included from the previous games. Furthermore, the minigames featured in the Crazy Taxi 2 are also seen to make a return in this installment. For the new course of Glitter Oasis, four exclusive drivers are also introduced. Other than these, there are no new additions to the franchise. Compared to the previous games, Crazy Taxi 3 hosts enhanced 3D graphics. At the same time, the game has the ability to run the frame promptly. The details in the visual graphics are also at a higher level as compared to the previous ones. These include smoke trails and motion blurs. A new addition to the game proves to be ‘Crazy X’ which is a series of short minigames like Crazy Ball and Crazy Football.
The soundtrack of Crazy Taxi 3 included the pieces from its predecessors in addition to new, fast-paced and upbeat numbers. The featured bands include Bad Religion, The Offspring and Silverbullit. Methods of Mayhem and Brian Setzer also make an appearance in the credits of the game. In addition to the songs and the guitar plays, the game also features conversations and comments by the driver and the passengers. Though humorous, this exchange of words gets heated at times. The passengers can often be heard to nag about the car going too slowly and the driver can be heard with his brash response. Sometimes, the passengers also make mistakes and give wrong directions to the driver. Like the previous two Crazy Taxi games, the third installment too features solo play only. Night-time is also introduced in this game.
Here’s my two cents on the game. For those who have never played any game from the series Crazy Taxi before, this game can prove to be a bucket load of fun. It is the pioneer among the games which provide similar game play. However, those who have had the experience to play the previous games in the franchise, this game will seem like a mere improvement of its predecessors. The reason for this is that all of the previously showcased content in included in this game too with the addition of very few paraphernalia. All in all, Crazy Taxi 3: High Roller proves to be extremely thrilling and immersive either way. So if you are thinking of trying out this game, do not have second thoughts!
