Juiced 2: Hot Import Nights
6 June 2012
Excerpt: Introduction It has been a while since I’ve had the chance (and time) to write a review for our beloved Fragland, but about a week ago a big white envelope containing a bright green disk case was delivered to my appartement : the Juiced 2 – Hot Import Nights – review copy.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Excerpt: Pimp my Powerslide A few years back, the original xbox was home to some top arcade racing games, the likes of PGR2, NFS: Underground 2 & Midnight Club3 all jockeying for position at the top of the pile. Unfortunately that was the time THQ decided to release the much-underrated Juiced.
Pros: great graphics,real feeling of speed when the NOS kicks in,Spooking your rivals and endless customisation
Cons: Drifting is essential(suck at it and this games becomes less fun),music can grate after a while, doesnt quite hit the hights it hints at.
