Juiced 2 Demo

The PC demo for popular racing sequel Juiced 2: Hot Import Nights is now available. It's funny that there's been so much noise about this, because I seem to recall the original Juiced being, well, a bit rubbish. Most people were pleased that it survived the desctruction of Acclaim, but no one would have stood up and said "Juiced really is one of my favourite racing games, yes sir. Let's have another."

Half Max Power-car showdown, half RPG-racer career thing, it was all... uninspired. The handling of the racing wasn't too hot either. That hasn't stopped Juiced 2 from selling mysteriously large numbers over in the land of console gaming. It's shinier, to be sure, but this is a very similar calibre of game the second time around. I imagine it has either sold more because everyone really did like that refreshed powerslide handling, or we Britons are simply obsessed with racing unrealistically shiny hatchbacks around contrived urban environments. Sorry, I came over all cynical there. It's just been a while since a racing game really gripped me, I suppose.
