Pains me to see my beloved Crazy Taxi much worse than it was back then, but hey I knew I wouldn't buy this when I learned about the soundtrack change.

They can snip out the branding and such but Crazy Taxi is not Crazy Taxi without Offspring. Copyright BS is why we can't have nice things )=

I had this game on the PS2 years back. I even managed to get S Ranks on both Arcade and Original as well as spending hours and hours completing Crazy Box. 
I really had thought about getting this for the sake of nostalgia, but, as many others have said, the lack of Bad Religion and the Offspring (especially Bad Religion's 'Inner Logic' when you get an S-Rank at the end of arcade) as well as the brand names being included is kind of a turn off.

" Crazy Taxi was never cool. Ever. There I said it.  "
Yes, it was. It was called Crazy Taxi 3 on the Xbox, it had both Crazy Taxi cities from the first two games, plus a Las Vegas rip off. Plus you can make your car jump. Amazing.

" Meh... 
 
But if they put out Smashing Drive, the far superior taxi-based arcade game, out on XBLA, I'd buy it instantaneously.  (It probably doesn't hold up as well as I remember it being in the arcades.) "
Oh jeez, Smashing Drive. Smashing Drive is what I played when I had 20 minutes to kill until the next Wedding Crashers showing, the other kids hogged up the Arctic Thunder & Police 911 2 machines and the fierce punch was broken on the Ultracade cabinet. Memories, but not very good ones. Kinda fun but those graphics & that soundtrack were horrendous.

The omission of Offspring ruins this version of Crazy Taxi for me. Luckily I still have the DC version hooked up.

Looks pretty much exaclty like the original sd version, I guess it's just for it to look normal on hd tv's. Anyways I don't like remakes, keep them classics on the consoles.

I do hope that at some point they release Jet Grind Radio as I've only played JSRF and had a ton of fun in that.

True but that overrides a lot of the other in game sound too when I have tried it with other games.

I too would love a Shenmue re-release, but I wouldn't hold my breath. In the mean time if you want a Shenmue fix and have a 360 you can get it HERE. It's backward compatible with the 360 and it looks pretty good. I still have my copy from when I had the first XBox. A little pricey for a new copy but so worth it if ya ask me.

I enjoy Crazy Taxi, although the controls are a bit clunky, along with the physics.  However, its games like these why I think the Dreamcast is a little overrated.  
 
I noticed that while this game is widescreen, it doesn't have proper widescreen support; objects will disappear if they're on the edge of the screen. Kind of strange, really. 
 
So Sega, when can we expect Dreamcast games that don't have a PC counterpart?

I remember completing the Crazy Box mode on the original Xbox port of this game, which was a pretty decent port back then.

Crazy Taxi is one of my favorite games ever!  This game is just old school try to beat the clock fun.  I was really hoping we would get a new Crazy Taxi on the Xbox 360, but I guess that isn't happening anytime soon (because sega has better things to do like create more then 2 shitty Sonic games a year!!!).  I also would have liked to see a update that would let Crazy Taxi 3 play on the Xbox 360 (from what I know it does not play on the Xbox 360, if anyone knows different please let me know), but for a Xbox Live Arcade game and PSN this looks like its worth $10 if you really want to play it on your Xbox 360.  Sure they could have given us updated graphics, but at least we got a wide screen setting (again I point out does Sega really put in any work to something that is not a sonic title?), I know the Dreamcast version never had that feature.  So in all truth its not a bad buy, sure it could be better but who would expect Sega to really celebrate there aging gamer series other then Sonic?!?!  
 
And yes this post does have a unusual amount of Sonic hate, but Sega really deserves it since they have forgotten they have created other classic game series other then Sonic!!  Sega I hate everything that you have become since the Dreamcast's decease.  
 
With this said my biggest reason to buy this would be just to hope my sale would support Sega to realize that there are other series that they have created over the years other then just Sonic that can sell in todays market, but yea my sale probably would just go unnoticed buy Sega.
