5.0 out of 5 stars Handling and Speed are everything, & this delivers them, 18 Aug 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: Juiced (Xbox) (Video Game)
Career modes and the amount of cars mean nothing to me in a racing game, it's about the driving sensation, no amount of fluff can hide bad driving sensation, Midnight Club 3 is a perfect example of fluff, but alas Juiced has come to save us from such games.
Juiced has really suprised me and now I've been playing it a while, I'd go as far as to say it's one of the best Racing games ever made for the Xbox, played in custom race mode or online just for the pleasure of racing it doesn't get any better than this.
The track design in this game is superb, the tracks are a joy to race, and the car handling (without mods) is fantastic, It's a bit too 'Burnout' with the mods, without mods they are more 'sim' like and more challenging, I like the way you can take bends at speed and feel the actual angle your front tyres are pointing at and whether you are going to lose it or not, you can even feel your front wheels turning into the skid to correct it, something that in most other games just causes you to spin around.
The engine sounds are really meaty and agressive, and actually sound like real cars, the game has 9 different areas set in a fictional city, 4 tracks in each, and also a point to point and a drag tracks, all regular races can be raced backwards. The graphics in the daytime are simply gorgeous, although having said that, at night time they look terrible, SRS and NFS have got the night time look down to perfection, not so here.
I'm surprised this game has some half hearted reviews here at Amazon, although I know that on the other two formats the game is terrible, but on Xbox it's a real winner, if you like fast and fun arcade racing with spot on handling this title is a must.
