Taxi missions suck now wtf

1. Theres no timer
2. You can't do multiple fares it seems.
3. You have to drop off only one person and the mission is over.

It's really disappointing. The taxi missions aren't even fun anymore. A part of the reason it rocked was because it was Crazy Taxi-ish. No timer gives you no reason to put the pedal to the medal, you can simply pace yourself. And no multiple fares makes the missions seems flat. A part of the ownage of the old taxi missions was determining who to pick up first, and strategizing, not so much anymore!

Taxi missions were the absolute BEST way to memorize the layout of a city in past 3d GTA's, because they tend to stop at the most popular locales, and take you all around the area. Every time I started playing a new GTA I'd immediately get a taxi and learn the layout.

Seems you can't do this anymore.

yeah they kind suck now, plus you have to use Roman's crap taxi instead of the yellow cabs which I like more, better handling. But the vigilante missions are still pretty sweet! oh do they have the ambulance or firetrucks missions like the other GTAs?

Sorry to dissapoint you, chap.
They doesn't.

But they do have upgraded the racing.. it's way more 'Midnight Club' ish now.
I wonder why, lawl.

I like how the taxi missions are now more like a easy fare, but indeed - the extraction of the multiple taxi-fare is unforgiven and almost blasphemy. I think it's more of a hint towards helping Roman other than actually making money. You can do that many other ways.
