Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that some passengers cry "Damn it!" when the cabbie rams too many obstacles. And while each of the four cab drivers is stereotyped to some degree, the African-American character is over the top --especially his oversize lips.
Is It Any Good?
Crazy Taxi is aptly named, serving up chaotic driving thrills. The joyride begins almost immediately; kids will have no trouble getting up to speed without even cracking the manual. And no police uphold the rule of law in this city, so players are free to drive through, over, and around anything they like, smacking into buildings, cars, and other obstacles. Some passengers give larger tips for a more exciting ride, while others jump out of the cab when they're too scared. It doesn't exactly teach safe driving habits, but it can be a decent amount of fun.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
