Juiced 2: Hot Import Nights
9 March 2014
Conclusion: While they had some great ideas, it seemed rushed or just never meshed. Talking about the replay value is difficult. If you plan on playing online, then the replay value is going to be higher. I think I said it best when I said this is the type of game you will play for a short time and then move on.
Conclusion: I enjoyed the commentary, which feels pretty realistic. The two main announcers are Gary Thorne and Bill Clement, and they do a great job getting most of their lines out without too many unnatural inflections sneaking out. Again, as with most sports voice-over dialogue, it isn’t long before you start hearing things over again, but it’s still a nice touch. One of the biggest disappointments was in the interface.
Conclusion: Juiced 2 Hot Import Night ravira tous les types de joueurs, contrairement au premier volet plus orienté courses, ce nouvel opus nous plonge vraiment dans l'univers du tunning avec ces voitures rutilantes, les bimbos et la tonne d'argent. En éditant le titre sur 6 consoles sur 7 (la Wii n'y a pas eu droit), THQ semble vouloir prendre une belle part de marché avant l'arrivée des Need For Speed Prostreet et autres Burnout Paradise.
Pros: Des graphismes très réussis, Un très bon gameplay, Une très bonne bande son
Excerpt: Do you like chicks? No, not baby chickens. Girls. Attractive girls. Attractive girls wearing scant apparel. Because that seems to be what the makers of Juiced 2: Hot Import Nights are hoping. They seem to be hoping that you like lovely ladies, loud pulsating music, and the enthusiastic decoration of cars via paint, decals, and miscellaneous aftermarket accessories. Oh yeah, and there’s some racing too, in case you might be interested in that sort of thing as well.
Excerpt: THQ's Juiced 2 - Hot Import Nights is your classic street "legal" racer that features state of the art graphics and engaging gameplay which plays more as an arcade racer rather than a simulator such as Project Gotham. Although it is easy to pickup the control and start playing, Juiced 2 - Hot Import Nights features an innovative drift system and when mastered by the gamer will make this an extremely thrilling and enjoyable title.
Summary: If you actually remember 2005's Juiced, you've got a better memory than most. THQ and developer Juice Games' unassuming arcade-style street racer didn't exactly set the world on fire. Instead, it offered up a mostly competent take on a well-worn genre that had some interesting, yet flawed, design concepts. Juiced 2: Hot Import Nights is the follow-up to that unmemorable game, and this sequel is equally forgettable.
Pros: Online career mode is a neat addition, Drift races aren't half bad, Lots of neat visual mods to trick out your cars, Plenty of licensed vehicles
Cons: Controls are loose, Artificial Intelligence rubber banding is ridiculous, Middling production values
Conclusion: Burnout is a better arcade racer, but Juiced 2 has other qualities including Driver DNA. It is a gimmick, but it works and it adds that element necessary to make spending money on a game of the like you may already own reasonable.
Summary: Juiced 2: Hot Import Nights (HIN) evolves the current street racing scene, letting players experience the culture of the real-life HIN tour, the nation's largest lifestyle custom car show in an intense racing experience.
