One of Sega's best "old-school" franchises hits the PSP as Crazy Taxi: Fare Wars gets a new life on Sony's portable console. Crazy Taxi: Fare Wars is actually a combination of Crazy Taxi and Crazy Taxi 2, so long-time gaming fans might remember the games from the Sega Dreamcast days. The games are direct ports to the PSP, but Sega developers did polish them up a bit so the graphics, animations and effects look current and fresh.

Crazy Taxi: Fare Wars is a great fit for the PSP, because it offers missions for both longer play times, and over two-dozen mini-games for busy people who can only grab a few minutes of playtime here and there. The controls take no time to learn and it's easy to jump right into the game to start earning that cash by taking to the city streets and getting customers to their destination as quickly as possible no matter what. This is no-holds-barred competition here, so crashing into other vehicles, driving the wrong way, causing havoc, hitting ramps to sky over other drivers are just a few of the ways gamers can cut corners to shave time off their score.

Besides the single player games, the multiplayer games offer great options for both ad hoc head-to-head challenges, and a great turn-based option that allows two players to challenge each other on one PSP. For the head-to-head battles, gamers can go after the same passengers, and even bump into opponents in order to "steal" passengers out of their cab. To add insult to injury, new interference features let gamers slow down opponent's delivery time of passengers, so be prepared for some heated competition. Crazy Taxi: Fare Wars is a great fit for the PSP, and is destined to be one of those games that always seems to be close at hand for some fast-action fun.

Earlier this year, Subaru announced the WRX STI would get a 5-horsepower boost for 2019. No, it wasn’t much, but at least the STI would no longer be outgunned by the turbocharged four-cylinder Mustang. Subaru’s latest special edition STI, however, comes with a much less underwhelming boost in power. It’s called the WRX STI TC 380, and
