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.

    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.

    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]
  6. 60
    The simple truth is that Juiced is behind the curve. The racing isn't bad, but the game places emphasis on the wrong reward system.
  7. Computer Games Magazine

    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]

    I bought the game back in 2005 when it came out. It was when i bought my first PC ever, the Computer came with NFS underground. NFS careerI bought the game back in 2005 when it came out. It was when i bought my first PC ever, the Computer came with NFS underground. NFS career mode was tiny, so i had to buy a new game. Juiced was my first ever videogame purchase. Firstly it hadn't a story like NFS underground but the game dives you so deep. The faces when throwing bets i still have memories. racing with teammates, controlling their agressivity. And that car rooster, tuning options, handling, it was superb. Way ahead of it's time.
    Even now, there isn't a racing game like that. Too bad there won't be a Juiced 3 but i contributed back in 2005, at least i could help a bit. Devs, thanks for this awesome game, i played it for months straight. Certainly a 10/10 never got frustrated with this game, i just remember having so much fun

Juiced is an excellent racing game with great graphics and car customization. I managed to play online on this before GameSpy shut down. When i saw the Acclaim version, I liked the crashes but THQ never gave us that. I tried the crashing but there were no flips or anything. Oh well, never mind. I recommend buying it Expand
