Drive a London Cab on Google Maps
Smarturbia uses the Google Earth browser plugin and Google Maps to allow anyone to create their own 3d fist person game.
If you don't want to create your own game you can just play any of the games made by other users. Each game requires you to take control of a vehicle and follow directions to navigate to landmarks. So, for example, you can take control of a London taxi and travel around London, dropping off you passengers at famous locations in the city.
The real fun however comes in creating your own game. You can choose between a number of vehicles, all of which can be customised to your personal taste. You can then create a tour in any city in the world, creating a route for players that will provide them with a guided tour of the city on Google Earth.
