KINECT JOY RIDE (G)
Xbox 360 (Kinect), $69.95
★★★ Kinect Joy Ride keeps its controls simple. Players steer with an invisible wheel, boost by thrusting their hands forward and powerslide by swinging their hips out on corners. The presentation is upbeat and cartoony, with a good variety of challenges from traditional races to stunt courses focused on big air and wild tricks. As players progress through challenges they earn fans, and there’s plenty of courses, modes and vehicles.
