Its a good game you really get to be like a jockey. what I don't like is, is that there is no post Parade you don't see them walking towards the starting gate you only see them in the paddock which I think is stupid. But overall it is a good game and I recommend it to people who like horse racing.
After playing both GR 04 and GR 06 I must say I had way more fun playing 04. If your torn between which two to rent
04 - Your a jockey trying to earn trust to let other owners let you ride there horses and they will fight for you to ride there top horse in key races
06- You play Frankenstein and pick two horses and try to make a perfect combo. Then you race that ONE horse and only that one horse from his 1st and hopefully not last year of his career.
I would have to describe GR as a racing game of skill and being able to read stats and sheets. Crank up the difficulty rating and you will realize you cant just pick any horse in any race to win. Its especially fun to try to take the "horse of the year" or other titles. Doing so involves going into the calendar and scheduling your horse for a series of races he or she must win to be considered. Over all, way more fun then you would think.
