I am the opposite of sold on Joy Ride. Un-sold? Soldless? Whatever the term would be, driving with Kinect just doesn’t seem like it will be as much fun as, say, driving with any form of wheel-like object in one’s hand. I think I’d take a steering wheel made out of sand paper over nothing.
However, it is not my place to judge before I try (or it might be). I can, however, judge the assets we have for Joy Ride and I judge them full of karts and things like that. Seriously, other than controllerless driving, which I don’t see as a boon, I’m not really seeing anything here that makes this stand out at all. Another tech demo?
