Juiced 2: Hot Import Nights
5 days ago
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.
Excerpt: Est-il encore utile de présenter des jeux comme Juiced ? Non seulement les trois quarts des jeux de courses dans l'univers du tunning se ressemblent, mais la notoriété du premier titre présente bien l'univers de ce nouveau volet. Tournons-nous alors vers les nouveautés que Juice Games a bien voulu nous offrir. Avec un nouveau moteur, annonciateur d'une flopée de nouvelles suites, il est clair que les performances graphiques vont être au rendez-vous.
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.
Conclusion: Juiced 2: Hot Import Nights is the first sequel to the successful Need For Speed competitor Juiced , a game that graced the last generation of systems. The series developed by Juice Games and published by THQ sees substantial changes and in many ways improvement over what has come before. But will this be enough for it to carve out a niche on the 'next' generation systems?
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.
