Well your out of luck if you want all the above, because except for two new levels this is pretty much the same game as the first! However there are a few changes that makes this game good anyway! For one thing people who felts hills were too easy have nothing to worry about, hills are gone and turns are in! That's right you will spend more time turning then going up a linear hill! But for those of you who still like flying with your taxi's don't worry, press the Y button on your Dreamcast controller and your car will jump! Cool huh?
The new Crazy Box is still nothing great, but I gusse some people still needs single player challinges! Instead of 2 songs we have 4 songs by Offspring in this game so you have a "LITTLE" more music to listen to while your listening to your customer shouting at you! The graphics are excattly like the first so thats a miner problem (But not by much)!
There's no two player or online modes so this is still pretty much a single player game! I don't think this is one of the "steller" games of the year because it's so much like the first, but it's still a little fun! I was going to give this game three stars, but decided on four because they added "enough" new things to keep me intrested. But I still hope "Crazy Taxi: Next" for XBox turns out a bit better still!

First off, Sega moved the scenery from hilly San Francisco to the narrow urban canyons of New York City--which is a bad thing if the hills in the first game were an attraction. But this one has Central Park, and that's a thrill unto itself. Also, Crazy Taxi 2 lets you pick up multiple passengers (on occasion), which is the best way to keep that timer up and score bigger points.
Once again you've got aggravating and conspicuous advertising in the game--from Burger King and KFC to clothing stores and other real-world destinations. Masters of Mayhem and Offspring supply the music. The Offspring song is a new one--at least we're pretty sure it is--but like all Offspring songs it sounds like the one from the last game.
Additionally, there are new Crazy Stunts you can perform. Crazy Golf entails a run at a massive ball, with a goal of smacking it a good 100 yards. Crazy Balloon 2 challenges you to pop all the balloons in a short span of time. Plus there are three more minigames you can play. You can play arcade style with a set time limit, or on a big or small NYC map.
The controls are tight and easily as good as last time, but some players may still have trouble performing some of the more difficult tricks. Also, ...
