has few bad parts but stil better than most new racers coming out lately i think the first juiced on the ps2 was awsome not meant to be real life racing simulator i read somewhere someone complained that it wasnt actually real racing well if you want to play a racing simulator game play gran turismo no where does it advertise life like racing great game for what it is brings me back to the classic racing games which by the way are way better than ay new racing game where they focuss wayyy too much on story line and life like rcing simulation barely ever any modifications for personalization anymore
1. The difference in your cars' control between Circuit and Drift events varies WAY too much
2. Even though there are so many visual mods available, There are some issues with graphics while in the "in car" view.
3. You get it..
Even with these mistakes, and others I haven't mentioned for their lack of importance, Juiced 2 offers great gameplay and a lot of entertainment.
In the first Juiced title it was quite difficult to gain a reasonable amount of money, yet in Juiced 2 you can easily get 300k by placing a spectator bet and utilizing the Boo/Cheer features wisely, thus you can get several million dollars in a very short time. In an hours time I got a total of $2,930,000 on a new account. With that I purchased several vehicles and I was only on League 6 at the time (Rookie->League 7->League6->etc.) In short: Money is no issue if you get the hang of spectator betting.
The tracks are fairly easy to understand, making it easy to improve your driving skills and win races more easily. But improving your car's performance is always important. One thing that should have been better implemented though is the weight reduction having a more noticeable effect on your car's acceleration.
The upgrade system has had a total makeover and now you have challenges to complete in order to upgrade your car more, for example the Perfect Lap Challenge where you have to complete a lap without touching the barricade/wall at all, and within a certain time! Or the Beat Car challenges, where you have to beat a car that is maxed out with a perfect driver, with nothing but your skill and a short 5-8 second head start! These challenges make it a more interesting experience to say the least!
The last thing to note: the Goal System. You have to complete a certain number of goals before you can advance to the next league.

Was not impressed at all with the game. Took awhile to get used to the handling of the cars and is nowhere close to being realastic. Has very sharp turns that you have to manuver thru and very short times to make it thru the tracks in order to make the upgrades. I got bored with it very quckly and returned the game. I would not recomend it to anyone who is a serious "racer" and enjoys the race-games...
