Same here, I loved it but its not the same. I bought it without trying it because I loved it as a kid but I thought it was terrible. Best thing you can do is try the demo.

Its not exactly the same, there are some changes in the gameplay. Like Impheister said, better thing is to test the demo.
Think by yourself.

I played both N64 versions and I liked them but I'm never in a rush to pay for items I already got just to play it on the 360 if they aren't worth it. I passed on this title.

For the most part the game has kept most of its original feel. The real difference comes in the physics, which are kind of weird... not like they weren't absolutely insane on the PSX/N64 versions though. The cars tend to get what I can only call "moon gravity" sometimes and weapons no longer terraform the ground when they hit, so Crater Makers no longer make craters, they just hurt a lot.
I am bad about checking every game forum I post in. If you have a question about an achievement guide I have written please PM me about it if I "ignore" your question. Thanks!!

Need boosting on lots of random games (Vigilante 8, E.W. Jim, Gauntlet, Scrap Metal, etc) - I've got lots of arcade games, if you need boosting in a particular game just ask! My GT is "Dracophile", shoot me a message anytime!
