When a game is delayed as long as Juiced it rarely bodes well for the end product. The delay seems especially unfortunate in this case its meant the game has been beaten to the starting line by similar titles such as Need for Speed: Underground 2 and Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition.
Juiced is, like the other games mentioned, a street racer and has the same obsession with customising your car with both performance mods and after-market cosmetic alterations (all of which are based on real products). 7.5 trillion combinations are apparently possible, although youll have to trust THQs maths on that as its doubtful theyve counted them personally.
What is truly unique about Juiced though is your ability to recruit and organise a team of your own racers. Special crew races are possible and you can control your team members in-race, in a similar manner to the B-spec mode in Gran Turismo 4. The show-off trick challenges are also a neat addition and a welcome alternative to the standard races.
Although it has some interesting features there are still some notable problems with Juiced, particularly in terms of the handling which is disappointingly simplistic and an uncomfortable halfway house between the likes of Gran Turismo and Ridge Racer. The artificial intelligence of rival drivers is also weak and outside of the more exotic game modes the game treads very similar ground to its rivals. As long as youre not expecting anything too original though this is still a very competent racer. -- Harrison Dent
Juiced uniquely combines the depth of a car modification simulation with the authenticity of true street racing tactics and culture. The game features nearly 50 licensed vehicles, real-time modding with hundreds of authentic aftermarket parts, more than 7.2 trillion unique custom car creations, realistic car physics and damage, and a robust suite of online head-to-head play modes, including, for the first time ever, "crew based" team racing and racing for competitors' P45s.

In all honesty this game is fun at first, but there doesn't seem to be any real point to it. You race the same people over and over...do the same tracks over and over...and the main aim is the earn "respect" from a load of characters with stupid voices. Their respect isn't even that difficult to earn...simply play the short, straight tracks (can't remember the names) over and over using one of the members of your "crew" so you don't have to bother...and you will earn respect points with one person faster than you can say the word "boring". So, so easy.
Yeah the graphics are good, but to me the fun in this game ended with the modifications.
