In the year 1999, SEGA released for arcade machines one of their most famous and long-lasting car games. Just one year later, it landed on Dreamcast, and shortly after it was also developed for other video consoles of the likes of PS2 and PSP, until a PC version was also launched. That was the origin of one of the most iconic games of the beginning of the 21st century and that in time has also arrived on new mobile platforms, both for Android in APK format, and iOS for iPhone and iPad. We're obviously talking about the legendary Crazy Taxi, that game in which we had to transform into a rather mad taxi driver that had to carry passengers around town as if that were his lifetime goal.

The best Crazy Taxi?
Ever since the initial release of this game almost 20 years ago, different versions have been launched within the SEGA franchise. Apart from this original game and its different sequels, such as Crazy Taxi 2 and 3, we've also got to mention the City Rush edition, much more simple and conceived only for mobile devices, and Gazillionaire, that deepens in the tycoon genre. But which one's the best of them all? Well, that depends on your tastes but for the most nostalgic users, it's definitely going to be this first title.
