Summary: This was one of the few earlier racing games I enjoyed before the Need For Speed franchise got big. The ability to buy new and used cars, bet against the people you race, earn respect, and race for a bunch of pink slips made this game really stand out from the rest. The graphics are nothing special, the racing can get boring in played for hours at a time, but it's definitely worth a run around the tracks with this game.
Excerpt: Juiced is a racing game for the Playstation 2 developed by THQ. The aim of the game is very basic, you simply having you start out as a rookie racer and working your way up the ranks in the games career mode. The game has you pick from several real life cars with more available as you play through, you can even customize your cars though it isn't as deep as Need for Speed in this aspect.
Excerpt: Juiced is a very addictive game. The best thing to do is start off simple. I love the modding option, watch your cash though. As you get better at racing the money will start to flow in. I personally never enter pink slip races unless I have a back up car or enough cash to buy a similar car to race with. The options are for racing are good, you can even host your own event. The thing I found difficult to do was drifting, and I have an analogue controller.
Excerpt: I got Juiced (ps2) for my birthday last year as i am totally mad on racing games. I think back then it was around £35 - £40, but i reckon you can get for less than half that now. Developed by: Juice games Published by: THQ Available on the PS2, PSP, PC, XBox and Java game for mobile phone. Mode: Single player, multiplayer and online multiplayer.
Summary: I bought this game a while ago and i put it in the disk tray expecting baisically a need for speed copy but actually it was better than that. you can build a collection of cars and actually bet for pinks which always adds some excitement. Ok the cars drift an annoying amount but actually i think this is the first street racing game to involve racing with a crew which may be where nfs carbon got the idea.
Excerpt: Overview ========================================================== The game Juiced pits you against a wide range of characters with enhanced driving street machines. In a series of increasingly risky challenges, you can earn cash, cars, and pride. You'll have to work hard to get to where the real petrol-heads and money lurk, building up a collection of nitrous-burning monsters for every type of challenge.
Pros: Urban street racing with lost of custimization
Cons: Career mode is only main feature and gets boring after main targets have been achieved
Excerpt: Juiced is a street racing game from THQ and Juice Games. The controls are simple. You have a gas button (X), Brake Buttons (O and Square) and a Nitrous Button (R2). It isn't hard to learn these controls so don't worry about that. The story to Juiced is very interesting. You this random guy who wants to do Street racing so he talks to T.K of the Urban Maulerz ,a street racing gang, and he'll challenge you to a race in his car.
Sounds boring and plain. But it's really good fun!

Summary: Juiced is a very simple, enjoyable and is a game you can constantly pick up and play. The idea is similar to Need For Speed. However the experience is different. The best thing to do on Juiced is to do a career.But the one problem is that all the other options are not much fun. But a career will last you a looonnnngg time. You basically buy cars.
Summary: When you start out in Juiced you buy a nice slow hatchback, win tons of races at 4mph and think that you are pretty good at it. With this in mind, you go and buy something a bit faster and more exciting, probably rear wheel drive. And die. The cars are so tricky to steer you will be proud to get round a corner facing the right way. Despite this, Juiced is in my opinion a fantastic game.
