Breaking all rules about keeping your hands on the wheel Microsoft's Kinect, the controller-free controller, has a racing game in the classic 'kart' mode. Kinect Joy Ride, like many of the Kinect titles is aimed at multiple players getting involved. This means more than racing against each other, as you can now choose to have a co-driver racing in the same kart - something you're not so likely to see elsewhere.

Players don't make use of steering wheels or pedals, this is a whole-body control experience in which the gamer attempts to be the car itself. Using changes in position – both left, right and literally up and down, by jumping – the idea is still to beat the opposition.

While traditional tracks are, of course, included, so are Destruction Areas in which the idea is to make your racing environment suffer using rockets as well the force of the vehicle itself.

Once the basics are mastered in the sitting room, there is also the opportunity to race head-to-head competitively using Xbox LIVE in races against with up to eight players.

All of this takes place in three game worlds with six mad courses that makes use of a host of different and varied environments. Plenty to satisfy your need for speed!
