"Get some sideways action"
3 stars"

I was very disappointed with the first Juiced game, and so I was very apprehensive to try this one out. I played the demo, and it has a LOT of stuff going on, it's very busy… pole dancers (why?!? – yeah, I know – HIN, but still…), so many effects and stuff. The GRAPHICS are impressive, although more arcade-looking than NFS Prostreet, which looks more like a sim than previous games before it. It is a big hog, and I had to chuck alot of detail down to get it to play right on my above-average rig, so it's definitely necessary to check you have something better than the minimum specs. The SOUND is pretty good too, and I have no problems in that area. The GAMEPLAY is challenging in drag, with a very weird feel to it, although I think with time one would actually really enjoy this. In the circuit race, it did remind me a lot of the first Juiced game, although the cars handled a lot different. Still bad? Undecided… The Juiced team stuck with their betting options which is one of the things I despised in the first game, and is completely confusing in the second game, so that's a definite minus in my eyes. Forgetting the Steering Wheel issue all the others have harked on about, the thing that annoys me is the confusing menu structure, and the wanton betting (which apparently you actually HAVE to do to progress through the game). If it was just racing without all the extra CRAP that was put in, it would have been much more enjoyable. I can only give it 3 stars.

If you have a steering wheel that you intend to use then do not buy this. Steering wheels are unsupported.

"No Steering Wheel Support"
1 stars"

The Product description above sounds great. Unfortunately I didn't even get to see any of it as there is no support for steering wheels which I find unbelievable. $69.95 for a game disk drink coaster. If you have a steering wheel and want to use it in this game, DO NOT BUY IT as no steering wheels are supported.
