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. Juiced is instantly approachable but has depth.
  2. The driving itself is seriously good fun and that really is the most important thing. This is a great game made even greater by its protracted stay in the developer's waiting room.
  3. With some races you can win in a snap but others are down to the wire and sometimes are way too hard. Juiced is definitely for those who love to put the pedal to the metal and lay waste to some asphalt.
  4. At best, Juiced is a mediocre ride. It's got a few shiny bits in the form of the team racing and gambling portions, but then the rough edges come roaring out of the gate and kill whatever joy you had at playing the game.
  5. 65
    A clunky racer where the main gaming mechanic of making money to spend on more races and car parts can easily backfire and put players in a position of struggling to make ends meet.
  6. 60
    Juiced can be highly irritating at some times and completely unfair at others. Why, for instance, do you have to help pay to repair other racers' cars yet no one helps you get your car back into racing shape?
  7. The musical selection features a nice mix of techno, rock and hip-hop.

    This happens to be my favourite game of all time, same with all my friends that played split-screen with me.

    Containing difficult and unforgiving driving, this game may have been more like a racing sim than any games like Forza/Gran Turismo, in modern day.

    THQ is dead, so the only hope for people that played this game (and had enough common sense to find it legendary), is that some company makes a HD remake of this game.

    Not the second one. That was disgraceful.

    Good idea, odd execution. I can customize a car, but not tune it thoroughly. I have NO idea what an improved stereo does... The AI cars are Good idea, odd execution. I can customize a car, but not tune it thoroughly. I have NO idea what an improved stereo does... The AI cars are interesting, but act in a way that a real driver would be crucified for. Very frustrating. The betting and 'Pinks' races add a cool element- so a 7 is justified. An 8 woudl not be. Expand
