Juiced: E3 Video released Friday, 28.05.2004
JuicedJuiced is a racing game from 'Juice Games Ltd.'. Some say this game could be a competition to Need for Speed Underground. After all, it offers 47 cars, and the graphics really do not look so bad.
Now they released the E3 video of Juiced. My personal opinion is, that street racings at daylight aren't really delightful. The tonality is far not as good as in NFS Underground graphically as well as audiotechnically.
Only the announced damage model would be a big pluspoint, but in the trailer you can see a car crashing frontal into a wall with 155 mph. It just loses the spoiler and then it drives on as if nothing happened. Not very realistic.

Make your own opinion and watch the 10 MB Trailer:
