Will "Juiced" be the racing game of the year?

I've been reading game site after game site and they've been hyping this game as the game to beat. The screenshots and article in the preview on gamespot are amazing. Even The Motley Fool financial site predicts it could bring back Acclaim Entertainment. It looks pretty cool to me and seems to improve on competing games in the genre.

I'd have to at least see a video before I formed an opinion - all the screenshots I've seen look like they're just from replays.

Is 'Juiced' a racing game where you play O.J. Simpson racing his white Ford Bronco? Sounds awesome!

I'm going to doubt Juiced will be the racing game of the year with these heavyweights coming out this year:

Gran Turismo 4 (already said)

Burnout 3 (which looks fantastic in video)

Need for Speed Underground 2 (NFSU was a good looking game)

Forza Motorsports (Microsoft's realistic racing game, you can play with 3 TV screens on this game, of course you have to have 3 Xboxes as well I believe)

Juiced looks good, but I'd say the screenshots are currently below at least Burnout 3 and Gran Turismo 4. It would be hard to beat the control of Burnout 3 as well...just my opinion though.

I guess I may be out of the loop, but I never heard of this game until this thread!

I think it's going to be Forza (hopefully). NFSU2 could be fun, too.

Played the Juiced demo... you can't exit the demo as far as I could tell - had to end task on it. 3 cars available - older Celica, newer Celica and a Supra. You can 'auto-mod' the cars which puts on a random combination of vinyls, neon, body kits, etc...

There doesn't seem to be a way to change or even view the keyboard config. The arrow keys seem to be forward=up, right=right, left=left and down=brake or nothing. Didn't find reverse or nitrous. This game has good graphics... quite good. The cars look amazing. The tracks are kinda dull like GT. The car I was driving was ass-heavy and kept spinning out. I'm sure it's something I could get used to, but it was really hard to control. There is a good sense of speed in the game.

I think I played this a little at E3 on console and thought it was decent, but it didn't wow me. It'll be a solid game I think, but I think the difficulty (as opposed to NFSU) might alienate some reviewers so unless they tweak that some, this won't get stellar marks.
