I never got to play this, I had the Simpsons alternative. I wouldn't mind picking this up but when I read that it is out on PSP, I might get it then since it's the original.

Go for the original (or a port that actually mirrors the originals content) if you can. Jahanzeb is totally right, All I Want (and the rest of the excellent soundtrack) really suit the game perfectly.

YA YA YA YA YA!

Actually, even the PSP version is altered, it has a different soundtrack and such. Try getting hold of eiether the Gamecube or PS2 version. I saw the PS2 version at JB Hifi (Moore Park) two weeks ago going for $10-13 (or maybe even less).

I concur that the PSP version has been altered. I was shattered when I found out.

I bought the PS3 version and was very disappointed about the change in soundtrack.
However, as I own Ixnay on the Hombre (actually I think I bought the CD because I was so into the songs after repeated playings on the DreamCast) it was easy enough to import the tracks and play them. I'd never played a custom soundtrack on a PS3 game before. I didn't realise it was as easy as jumping out to the PS3 menu and starting the tracks.
Makes a big difference zipping around the city to "ya ya ya ya!"
Eventually I'll put together the other songs that were on the original soundtrack into a playlist... or better yet make up a different one... hmmm.

I do not apologize for loving Sega Dreamcast. It got me back into the game and has some great titles. It was one of the great Crazy Taxi, pedal-to-the-metal driving game, which was a tongue planted firmly on the cheek.

I'll just fire up my Dreamcast and play this with the original sound track.

I got to say I was really looking forward to this game, but after playing it and buying it as soon as it came out, I was really dissapointed with this game.

I played it twice and turned it off. That's after playing it for months and months on the Dreamcast and absolutely loving it.

This is a pretty bad port from SEGA, and if all their Dreamcast games are going to be like this it really sux. First it was Sonic Adventure with no Wide screen and no updates at all to the graphics, and now Crazy Taxi, with loss of Original Sound track and no store names, as well as seems the graphics are more blurry now, what's up with this ?

I would have thought they would make the graphics a little better now worse.

It sucks because all the games I use to love on the Dreamcast Sega seems to be rushing them out with half ass ports. I would rather pay 1200 MS points for Crazy Taxi with HD graphics then 800 for this piece of crap.

Very disappointed with this game and if Sega Bass Fishing is like this, I won't be buying it as well as any of their other games.
