About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.


'Juiced' (PS2/Xbox/PC) Gets Dated

Juiced will fully immerse players in the lifestyle and culture of the street scene. Drivers will start with the dream of building a crew of 'driving gods' and work towards domination of the established street-racing scene of Angel City. Showing off racing skills in show-off mode will help players gain 'respect' from rival crew chiefs, allowing them to attend other crew's events and eventually bet against them for cash as well as challenge drivers 'for pinks.' As a racer's notoriety grows, new drivers will ask to join the team, opening up never-before-seen 'crew races' where the players ability to manage a crew of drivers is key to beating rival crews. Juiced will feature more than 50 real cars with more than 100 real mods for a total of 7.5 trillion car customization possibilities. The game will also offer a full on-line feature set complete with six player races and world leader boards.

Juiced received rave reviews earlier in the year, and since taking ownership of the rights, THQ has been working closely with Juice Games on a number of refinements to enhance the game.

"THQ is extremely excited to be entering into a long term relationship with Juice Games, as the global publisher for the keenly awaited street racer, Juiced," said Peter Dille, Senior Vice President, worldwide marketing, THQ. "With the additional time we've allocated to the title, we're certain that Juiced will excite gamers across the globe even more than originally anticipated."

"Every developer dreams of having a few months to polish their creation so that it truly matches the original vision they had for it", stated Colin Bell (founder of Juice Games). "That's exactly the opportunity we've been given by THQ. Racing game fans are very discerning, and we're keen to deliver something that far exceeds their expectations."

Along with additional cars and tracks, numerous gameplay and visual enhancements are planned for the May 2005 release. A full list of additions is available from THQ's press departments.

In support of the launch of the title, THQ plans to roll out a highly effective and significant global marketing and PR campaign, which is expected to be augmented by a playable demo on all three platforms, prior to the launch of the game.
