Crazy Taxi, originally an arcade hit, was one of our favorite games on the Dreamcast, and Sega hopes to miniaturize the madness in Crazy Taxi Fare Wars on PSP.
These new images show the nutty yellow cab drivers causing all sorts of trouble in what looks like San Francisco, with the steep hills and trollys the city is known for.
Anyone who has played Crazy Taxi will know how insanely fast the game is, as you rush around to pick up passengers and deliver them to their destinations, pointed out by the giant arrow at the top of the screen.
In the Dreamcast game, you blasted through restaurants, malls and various other populated areas, smashing through chairs, tables and other parts of the scenery leaving chaos in your wake.
We hope the PSP game can keep up the pace and the chaos with a smooth frame rate. The textures in some of these screens are worryingly blurry, but it's early days yet.
Crazy Taxi Fare Wars is due out in late 2007. Hit the Images tab above for all of the new screens.
