Crazi Taxi: Analog stick or D pad?

Post#1 » Thu Jul 27, 2017 11:23 am

Hi there,
There is a Dreamcast at my work (offshore) and I have been playing Crazy Taxi recently. When I used to play the Dreamcast when I was younger I always used the D-Pad for everything that I could (I still do). I really didn't like the analog as my thumb always slipped off it. The controllers I am currently using have had the analog sticks changed for PS4 ones which is a massive improvement. I have tried using the analog stick for Crazy Taxi but not sure if its worth re-teaching myself to use it. I can get quite high scores and have completed the crazy box. I just feel that it may be slightly easier to weave in-between cars. But im so used to using a D-pad that it would be a big undertaking to change my driving style of this game.

Has anyone experience using both? What are your thoughts?

I always adored driving games that used both .. when I am all crooked I can tap D-Pad for the small adjustment needed to go straight line

I couldn't imagine using the Dreamcast wheel with Crazy Taxi. I would totally wreck it. When I play Crazy Taxi in the arcade I drive it like I stole it. Most Crazy Taxi Arcade machines now look like they have had a hard life.
