Three times the size of past "Crazy Taxi" games, "Crazy Taxi 3: High Roller" delivers non-stop arcade action on the bustling streets of Glitter Oasis at night. Gamers must race between over-the-top fantasy casinos and labyrinthine desert back roads in a mad dash for cash, collecting fares from customers ranging from glamorous showgirls to gangs of unruly mimes. A new set of challenging mini-games, dubbed the "Crazy X," will help gamers perfect their skills -- from the crazy dash and crazy hop, to insane combo moves like the crazy drift hop dash -- as they unlock new cars and other secret items.
New drivers Mrs. Venus, a pink-haired mother of eight, the surly Zax, unpredictable Angel and super-smooth Bixbite join eight cabbies from the first two games. "Crazy Taxi 3: High Roller" also features tricked out versions of the West Coast level from the original "Crazy Taxi" and the Small Apple from "Crazy Taxi 2" for three full games in one.
