  • Summary: Juiced, as in life, is all about the car. Style comes in a close second to speed, and Juiced offers thousands of real-time modding combinations that empower players to create their ultimate personality-infused street machines. But it takes more than a fresh coat of pearlescent paint to earn respect on the road; it takes the ball bearings to go up against the trash-talking, nitrous- burning faithful who want to strip everyone of their cash, cars and pride. Juiced lets players connect with their community and share the high-octane action by recruiting drivers to become part of their crew and race together as a team to put the brakes on the competition. Features more than 50 licensed vehicles, including Toyota, Honda, Nissan, Dodge, Ford, Mazda Mitsubishi, Pontiac, Holden, Volkswagen, Fiat, Renault, Subaru, Peugeot and Chevrolet; Hundreds of authentic aftermarket parts from leading manufacturers such as A'PEXi, AEM, Bridgestone, Ferodo, Konig, Alpine and HKS that provide players with thousands of personalized vehicle customization combinations; Progressive, non-linear gameplay that enables players to build their characters and cars, and gain respect and notoriety by winning races and cash; Unique blending of simulation and the high-octane appeal of arcade-style racing; Ability to build custom racing crews that work together as a team to win races; Authentic car physics and damage; and Online head-to-head play.

  1. Graphically, Juiced is very slick without getting too superfluous.
  2. A nice idea, but the respect system eventually begins to grate. [June 2005, p.97]
  3. It does feature a fair bit of cars, some decent courses to drive on, a nice arcade mode and multiplayer to boot, but when the graphics and overall presentation is unimpressive, gameplay mechanics don’t feel right, and very limited sound effects are included you’re probably left thinking that the money you spent should’ve gone elsewhere.
  4. It simply exists in an inoffensive and unexciting realm of commonplaceness that makes it incapable of standing out among the pack of infinitely better racers available for any of its chosen platforms.
  5. An impressively comprehensive, reasonably captivating though ultimately flawed experience. [June 2005, p.95]
  6. 60
    Offers a good variety of race options and an involved career mode, but that flawed mode puts too much focus on money, respect, and schedules, and not enough on actual racing.
  7. THQ salvaged the wreckage, polished the package, and let the game out of hte garage, where it debuts with middling success. [Oct 2005, p.68]

    This 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.
