Combining the best elements of simulation and arcade-style play, "Juiced" will feature more than 50 licensed vehicles; real-time modding with hundreds of authentic aftermarket parts; realistic car physics and damage; and online head-to-head play, including for the first time ever, "crew based" team racing.
"Juiced", as in life, is all about the car. Style comes in a close second to speed, and "Juiced" offers thousands of real-time modding combinations that empower players to create their ultimate personality-infused street machines.
But it takes more than a fresh coat of pearlescent paint to earn respect on the road; it takes the ball bearings to go up against the trash-talking, nitrous- burning faithful who want to strip everyone of their cash, cars and pride. "Juiced" lets players connect with their community and share the high-octane action by recruiting drivers to become part of their crew and race together as a team to put the brakes on the competition.
Originally to be published under the Acclaim brand, the game was picked up by THQ after the original publisher folded, and was given extra development time for significant improvements and added features.
Starting as a rookie, with not even a set of wheels to your name, your aim is to build up your own crew and dominate the established street racing scene of Angel City. By showing off your modding and driving skills, you'll gain 'Respect' from the rival crew chiefs, and will soon be invited to their race events, challenge them to race 'for pinks' and bet against them for cash. As your notoriety grows, new drivers will ask to join your crew, opening up the never before seen 'crew races' where your skills at managing your drivers while you race are key to beating your rival crews.
