I was looking forward for this game and was highly dissapointed.... It just copies the like of NFS and Burnout.
I hated it, the first was miles better and since i thought the first was good i exspected the second to be even better but it wasnt.
If you are going to buy it buy it with caution as it gets very boring.
As a racing game this is good. Buy it if you like arcade-style handling and graphics including damage. If you love realistic handling buy ProStreet, Gran Turismo or Forza. However where this game beats all others is the modification.
In other games eg. NFS Underground 2 you modified your cars using a set of pre-designed parts made by EA, apart from the wheels which were manufacturer's. They took it up a bit with autosculpt but still you were making a car that would never be on the road. BUT Juiced uses official aftermarket parts and bodykits.
For example the Fiat Coupe can be given the official Fiat 'Limited Edition' Bodykit, along with spoilers and lights readily available - in short you can make a car in the game that you could see in real life, or if you wanted to, you could make in real life!
Altogether, if not compared with the likes of NFS and Forza, great game, good graphics and well worth the money for the mods alone.
Suffers from the official license. The whole street racing culture just doesn't fit into official closed races, the feel is simply gone. There is no traffic, no cops, no free feeling of open road. There are also way, way too few tracks to choose from. The tuning, though quite fun, suffers from the same lack of variety.
