This game really knocked off my Socks.(hehe, like my title?) It amazed me. This is probably the best racing game i have ever played, next to GallopRacer2004. First off, the graphics are realy really great. You can see the horse sweat ;). And if the horse has a long Stride characteristic, you can see it. I love the basic plot of the game, too. Workouts before races, registering your reg.rides, and helping the stables pick out good race horses. You have racing rivals, andyou are all striving to be winninest rookie, and then top jockey. Something else that I have NEVER seen in a racing game is SteepleChasing(or Jump race, as they call it). This game has it. And, if you are on 'hard' riding in a Jump race,and you have bad judgment over a jump, you can fall off your horse. Very very realistic game and i really reccomend renting it.
I am still searching for a good horse racing game. This one was OK, but needs work. I like the graphics and the career advancements. But I am sick of watching the horse's mood, potential, etc. ALL I should be watching is the horse's speed and fatigue. Beautiful graphics help a little. But the gameplay is not very good.
