Juiced Ships

THQ Inc. today announced the release of the high-octane street racer Juiced(TM) for the PlayStation(r)2 computer entertainment system, the Xbox(r) video game system from Microsoft and Windows PC. The highly-anticipated release of Juiced delivers an all-encompassing street racing experience, bringing the culture of street racing to life through game-play elements like betting and earning respect, while also featuring an extensive modification system in which gamers and gear-heads alike can build entire fleets of tricked-out racing machines. Drivers can get to work under the hood for a suggested retail price of $49.99 on PlayStation 2 and Xbox and $39.99 on Windows PC. "Spending the time to fine-tune key game-play elements and further develop features such as crew racing, pink slip racing and online play has resulted in one of the top street racing games available," said Philip Holt, senior vice president, product development, THQ. "We are extremely pleased with the well-rounded racing experience Juice Games has delivered and look forward to continuing to advance THQ’s position in the street racing genre." Juiced will fully immerse players in the lifestyle and culture of the street racing scene where they will show off racing skills, earn respect from different crew chiefs and bet against them for cash. Earning cash and respect will ultimately unlock more than 50 real cars with over 100 real after-market cosmetic and performance mods for a total of 7.5 trillion car customization possibilities. As a racer’s notoriety grows, new drivers will approach them to join the team, opening up never-before-seen ’crew races’ where the player’s ability to manage a crew of drivers is key to beating rival crews. The game will also offer a full on-line feature set, including 6 player races, crew races, world leader boards and crew and pink-slip competitions, where someone will lose the car they worked to customize. Juiced has been winning critical acclaim from top gaming publications and was IGN’s runner up for best PlayStation 2 racing game at E3 2005: "The heart of Juiced is pedal-to-the-metal street racing. And that’s where it shines like a freshly buffed coat of pearlescent paint." -- OXM "Juiced has me hooked. The sophisticated progression scheme, the superb handling, the easy-to-modify cars, and the betting system are all excellent features, and the game is polished and smooth in every aspect." -- IGN.com "Juiced successfully straddles the line between a car tuning sim and arcade style street racer, then adds extra intrigue in the form of a team-based system." -- PSM
