Acclaim Entertainment have squeezed out a number of fresh new screenshots of the Juice Games developed street racing title Juiced, which is due for release by the end of 2004.

Juiced is said to feature more than 50 licensed cars, along with real-time modding using authentic aftermarket parts, and full head-to-head online play which interestingly is said to include a "crew based" team racing mode which will allow you to recruiting drivers and work as a team to win races.

As can be seen from the screens on this page Juiced is looking very impressive, and appears to use a semi-cel-shaded look to the cars without going excessively cartoon-style such as Capcom did with Auto Modellista.

Talking about the game Acclaim's Rod Cousens told us "Today's racing enthusiast wants more than just the control of the steering wheel - they want to fully personalise their experience, from the drivetrain to the decals. Juiced will give players the opportunity to go from artist to overdrive and test their mettle online in one of the best head-to-head racing experiences ever brought to the next-generation platforms" - an impressive boast, but one that would seem fair from the company that bought us the fantastic Burnout.

A cross between simulation and arcade-style racing is promised, which usually means that neither area was quite possible and it's been made to suit the widest audience, but with the developers being responsible for the highly respected but as-yet unreleased Lamborghini on Xbox, it'd seem that they know what they're doing.

Juiced is expected to be available on Xbox, PlayStation 2 and PC in time for Christmas, and looks set to give Burnout 3 which is now to be published by Electronic Arts a real run for it's money.
