Can't believe the original Xbox version was better

I own this game for the original Xbox and I figured I'd try to get some achievements for it on the Xbox 360. I was pretty surprised to find that the original Xbox version was way better. For the most part, it's the same, obviously, even though this version claims to be "HD" (yes I have an HD TV.) The graphics and sound and the overall appearance seems almost identical to the original Xbox version in fact, the orginal Xbox version was better. There were actually some things missing in the 360 version. The UI is a lot slower some sounds are missing, it just doesn't have the same energy as the original Xbox version. Like the Gold Medal sound, in the original Xbox version, if you get a gold medal, at the end when the gold medal comes out there's this awesome sound and the 360 version doesn't have it. It also doesn't take forever to tell me how many stars I got, unlike the 360 version. Other than that, this game is really fun, going 200 miles per hour, smashing into other cars, flying off of ramps, I love this game. I didn't bother trying the multi-player because I know for a fact that I would be the only person on this planet trying to play this game online. I mean, jeez, there's 7 billion people on Earth, right? What is everyone doing? Play some Burnout Revenge!
