    I'm thinking of downloading Crazy Taxi tonight on the PS3. but I've seen no reviews or anything yet. I just wanted to know if anyone has tried it yet? Is the port decent enough? I know the music has been replaced, but that should actually be a plus. I don't want to waste $10 if the control is screwy.

    I just listened to a review where they mentioned the old "fast shift" being broken (or not available) at all, which was one of the cool elements in the original. It's not a favorable review. I might wait for next week and just get Dead Nation instead.

    Hmm, I'm guessing they mean the shift speed boosting. If that isn't working, then it kinda breaks the game. Bummer.

    It's a port of the pc version or at least that awful PSP version according to Giantbomb.

    I would really NOT buy the game because part of the fun was speeding around to the hyper music.

    But yeah, the speed boost supposedly doesn't work. So not flying off after you drop off a ride.


    That and Dead Nation next week, yo.

    Offspring makes me want to punch "music" in the throat for allowing Offspring to exist.

    I used to play the game without the sound. Would simply listen to CD player or the stereo. When I played in the arcades, I could barely hear it, when I bought it for PS2, I was like "AAAHHHH!!!!!!".

    LOL, but what about when your fare said, "I want to go to Pizza Hutt" and you would take her to Kentuky's Fried Chicken because you had the volume down?

    Oh wait, I forgot about the arrows, lol
