The first game also has a PlayStation 2 port, a GameCube port, and a Windows port. It is also notable for its soundtrack featuring the punk rock bands The Offspring and Bad Religion.

The PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of Crazy Taxi also exclude the original bands, providing an original soundtrack for the ports. Custom soundtracks can also be used on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 via their system firmware. The iOS and Android versions feature the original soundtrack.

The game has product placement, such as KFC, Pizza Hut, Tower Records, and Fila. These establishments have been replaced with generic businesses in later versions due to licensing difficulties.

The sequel introduced several new features not found in the original, including two new cities, "Around Apple" and "Small Apple", both somewhat based on New York City. The new cities share four new drivers as default, bringing the total playable characters to eight.
