Jul 4, 2014This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. The idea of the game is fantastic. With different racing teams approaching you and your own team to do pink slip races etc. You are able to attend to any race you feel like attend to, with or without your teammates to win powerful parts to the car you take to the race.
You are an unknown racer, your team will always consist of the exact same members whatever you do. Without experience they do stupid mistakes, but keep them attending to races and they will get better until they can't get any better. While it's a very interesting and original system it is not well thought through.
There is a good amount of cars to choose from, and you can choose anyone that fits your style. The big negative on this game is also how the cars are controlled. Cars that are RWD, will wipe out. A lot. They are very hard to steer and looses grip on the very slightest turns.
Car customization exists and it allows minor to medium amount of customizing of you and your teammates cars. You can take your car for a spin on the oval track and also do a dyno test to check your cars firepower.
Is it worth your money? The game is cheap, but still, I'd only recommend it for people who have an history with few to moderate amount of racing games. You can also check it out on You Tube.… Expand
DavidD.Oct 12, 2005Okay, so they did add a damage system to NFS Underground, a game I seriously like and something it needed, (+1 respect) but that doesn't save it from the weird team system (-1 respect), the ripping off from NFSU (-1 respect) and especially the enigmatic respect system (-2 respect).

Edge MagazineAn impressively comprehensive, reasonably captivating though ultimately flawed experience. [June 2005, p.95]
PC FormatA nice idea, but the respect system eventually begins to grate. [June 2005, p.97]
Pelaaja (Finland)Juiced has many interesting features, but they all have been seen before in the games it shamelessly imitates. The game has interesting characters and good career-mode but why bother, when there are better games to choose from? [June 2005, p.62]
