Destructoid Impressions: Kinect Joy Ride

Destructoid: Who knows if Kinect Joy Ride will be a long lasting kart racer, but if anything, it looks like a very involved and physical game. Some will hate it, and that's ok. However, for those looking for an alternative to games like Kinect Adventures, Kinect Joy Ride seems like a title to at least pay attention to at launch.

"I mean, it's better than Mario Kart Wii with motion control."

Heck, I'm not sure where he'd sit on the Kinect fence.

He would either absolutely tear it apart, or claim its the best thing since sliced bread.

Where do you think those 5 million dollars go? If you haven't figured it out, they are drinking the cha-ching of M$.

"racing is just as you'd expect....tilt your hip left and right to change directions"
LOL, no. That is NOT the way I'd "expect" to control a racing game.

"it's better than Mario Kart Wii with motion control"
I highly doubt that. The controls for Joy Ride are silly and Mario Kart's controls do the trick real well.

Couldn't help but notice you have a face drawn on your Move controller. What kind of gamers exactly are you playing with that thing girl? haha

If im seeing reports right for this, it doesnt even have acceleration controls because it auto accelerates for you like an old phone game. The only reason a racing game does that is to simplify controls that would otherwise be too fiddly and difficult to fine control yourself. How does that even bode well for more complex titles like Forza kinect? Or more complex games full stop?

Show me the games that wouldnt work better with buttons microsoft, cos this aint one of them.

Would have been fine if he hadn't said better than Mario Kart and that comment will pretty much cost him his credibility, as much as writing for Dtoid.
