Kinect Joy Ride (Xbox 360)

 

Kinect Joy Ride is a colorful racing game that has a lot of good things going for it. It lets you play as your Xbox Live avatar and choose from a number of good-looking rides; its imaginative environments are host to several different event types, in...

Kinect Joy Ride Review for the XBOX360

 

What, no blue shells with wings?

Kinect body "controls" work surprisingly well; Gameplay is fluid and chaotic; Great "party" game for looking like an ass

Pricetag is comparable to a full AAA game; ...but the gameplay is more like DLC

Kinect Joy Ride Review

 

Few games embody the simultaneous brilliance and ridiculousness of motion-sensing gaming like Kinect's launch day racer, Joy Ride. I mean, here is a title that asks you to hold your hands in front of your body like you're steering a fake car--something...

Joy Ride’s pleasing cartoony visuals earn it some extra points on and off the track; varied locations and personality-filled environments evoke Pixar, theme parks and mini golf courses. There’s also a tacked on, but fun-for-a-few-laughs challenge mode...

Kinect Joy Ride Review

 

This motion-controlled racer is fun, but it'd undoubtedly be better if you could play it with a regular controller.

Plenty of varied event types ; Online play is lag free ; Stunt events are enjoyably challenging

Controls are imprecise ; Vehicles all offer identical performance and handling ; Only two event types are playable online

Kinect Joy Ride isn't a bad game by any means, but it's also not a good game to release alongside the new Kinect hardware. Rather than showing off what the Kinect is capable of, Kinect Joy Ride is an obvious example of a game that would be better if...

Big Park's Joy Ride is another instance of Microsoft's marketing and product promotion gone horribly wrong. Billed as a free-to-play Xbox Live Arcade title at E3 2009, the arcade-style racer suddenly made the magical shift to Microsoft's Kinect device....

It’s hard to recommend Joy Ride to anyone. If I did, my recommendation would be something along the lines of... “Hey you, buy Joy Ride... it’s meant to be a racer, but it handles like a 60 year old schizophrenic car that has jelly for tyres and is...

As I try to sum my review for Kinect Joy Ride, I am left with two very distinct impressions. The first is that this game is definitely not for diehard racing fans as the content and control will turn them off. On the other side of the fence though is...

Microsoft's Kinect JoyRide is one of the first retail releases for Xbox 360 to use the Kinect hands-free accessory system. The kart-style racing game is played through a controller-free interface that can sense motion, detect gestures, and pick up spoken

Kinect Joy Ride review

 

If we were to ask you to pretend to drive a car right now you would put two hands out in front of you as if you were holding a wheel. You might even go as far as to pretend to turn it from left to right, tilting your whole body as you did so. That's...

Easy to pick up and play, plenty of different game modes, online mode, you can play it sitting down

No acceleration control, no breaking, you have to be measured in your movements rather than flailing around like an idiot

While racing fans will class this as mindless drivel, where the game succeeds is in the battle modes and the online play possibilities

Kinect Joyride 360 Review

 

This game was originally announced as a free to download XBLA title that looked like a great way of playing as our Xbox Avatars and a lighter way to enjoy multiplayer. But once Kinect came to light, someone thought it was a good idea to scrap that free...

Visually pleasing ; Well designed game modes

Frustrating Kinect usage ; Terrible Audio ; Great ideas turned bad
