A couple quick things about Joy Ride, that some people might not know:
There is a free car to download. Just go to the main xbox dashboard (yes, the one with the controller) and look for the ad. I think it is a Chevy car. For me though, I'm racing to unlock the Ice Cream truck. I really want to race the Ice Cream truck. lol
You can paint your car the color of anything in your house. Go to customize and there is a paint can there. Click it and it has a camera that you can hold something up to change the color of your car. I held my dog up and it painted the car black to match my dog. It won't do patterns, but just colors.
There is another game mode, where your car flies in the clouds. You have to keep striking different poses and yes...there will be pictures.
The game itself is pretty small, about 1.6 gigs when installed on your HD. However, it is very fun. Besides regular racing, it has weapon racing (rockets, ice, etc.), it has a half-pipe where you do stunts, it has a crash course where your wreck stuff, and then it has the pose. There is also online play, which I'm not sure what that is yet.
There are also some nice Avatar awards in this. Helmets, jump suits, etc. Looks funny.
I can almost promise you there will be DLC for this game. No confirmation, but it seems like the writing is on the wall.
