Joy Ride Turbo turns up in Australian classification

Friday, 13th April 2012 04:08 GMT By Brenna Hillier

An unannounced Microsoft Studios title has appeared on the Australian Classification Board’s database. Called Joy Ride Turbo, the game was rated on April 5 and was given a G with a warning that online play experience may vary. It’s not clear if the new game has any relation to fellow Microsoft Studios release Kinect Joy Ride, although it certainly seems likely. We’ll poke Microsoft a bit and let you know if we get an answer.

Thanks, Joystiq.

    Theres a gap for a decent karting game on xbox to fill, but Joyride doesnt carry any weight as an IP.

    The engine was good, but the gameplay stank and it was pretty bland.

    Maybe with a reboot and pad controls it could be good, but a straight up sequel isnt going to excite.

    Needs 4 player splitscreen too.

    @1 If you’re after one, apparently Sonic & SEGA All Stars Racing is good and can be found for a pittance these days.

    I did try SaSASR. It seemed solid enough but the controls didnt quite click for me.

    Oddly I thought Blur was the closest to MarioKart style gameplay on xbox. The powerups balanced out beautifully, but I prefer the sedate pace of MK, mainly due to me being old as dirt.
