Gameplay[edit]

The game starts off in a night club where the player selects their character and car. Juice Games has decided to remove the racing calendar, the respect system and the drag races. After choosing a character and car, the player will get a list of available races, three of which must be won in order to move up to the next level. Juiced 2 includes three types of racing: Circuit, Destination and Drift races.

Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions[edit]
