    I missed this one, maybe someone else here did as well......it uses ps2.0, and has motion blur, daylight racing, and vehicle damage....

    Getting around in the menu sucks, but the gameplay rocks.
    Below are a few screenshots taken from a 9800.

    You can grab this demo from here, but probably other places as well.

    Looks great, thought the collisions need some work (especially on the invisible walls at the side of the road) and the AI cheats. The demo seems to be less forgiving of keyboards than NFSU though - you probably need a wheel to get the best out of this. It also doesn't give the impression of speed like NFSU or Midnight Racing.

    However didn't Acclaim go out of buisness recently? This does seem to be a developer or magazine build, so maybe Acclaim or the devs put this out to find a buyer for a mostly finished game.

    Indeed, who can we rely on now to try stupid crap like putting game ads on tombstones? Juiced wasn't developed or funded by Acclaim, so all their bankruptcy meant was a slight delay. I think THQ now have the distribution rights.

    I don't see why it is so difficult to give the AI cars the same limitiations and handling as the player car.

    The polycount on those models seems quite high. What is usually done by clever texture work, they seem to be doing with actually polygons.

    In other news Saem needs to upgrade his rig.

    Played a promo copy for xbox that is on the net for some time now. Was thinking of buying it until i played it honestly. AI cheating was a bit minus. Thought the control of the cars wasnt that great. Sound was good. But Ai was definitely cheating. Threw out the game.

    I found the control of the car to be more realistic, than many other racing games I've tried recently.

    I am talking mainly xbox here as i do not play anything other than fps(rarely)/rts(A little)/turn based(Civ3) and rpg's(nothing out in a long time) on computer. I dont see a poitn of playing sports games without a big screen tv and friends with beers around(IMO ofcourse). But on Xbox Rallisport challenge 2 rules all. So do the Gran Turismos.
