Really Bad

U-G-L-Y

My sister bought my horse and me at gamespot, and got horsez 2 for free! A good deal, more like a burden! This game is slow, and I'm not only talking about the gameplay. The frame rate made me want to puke! I was dizzy just watching her play the game. I would have to say it's running at 10-15 frames per second! Now that will give you a head-ache!

Also the VO (Voice over) IS HORRID! And the story (Maybe I'm being a stickler) is just completely throw away. I wouldn't let your children play this, unless you want to clean up what they had for breakfast that morning!

My horse and me is a much better, funner, and prettier game. But it's not worth a buy.

Bad

Too hard for a 7 year old

Both my daughter and I had a tough, very tough time controlling the horse around the map. We just couldn't get it to go where we wanted and it was frustrating to both of us.

Also, there is a LOT of reading as it is mostly a story that you follow along with,

I am not one of those who has to have beautiful graphics in all my games. I still to this day play snes and nes games. That aside, this game actually strained my eyes. The graphics were that bad. The playstation 2 version even looked better. It has a foggy or misty haze to it, that after a while I realized was hurting my eyes. The game really did look like an old playstation 1 game or a old Snes game, only worse.

I wanted to like this game. But it really isn't like the old PETZ games. I still had my family try to enjoy the game. But the combination of bad and sometimes unresponsive controls, terrible "storylines," the annoying camera, and the dated graphics really killed the game. Even my young ones were bored of it within 6 minutes.

It just lacks the PETZ series' charm. It is missing a lot. It ends up being more work than fun.
