My Horse and Me 2.
I remember the hype back in 2008 and as I made my way to midnight launch, I had visions of being the new Bob Champion or for the girls, Tatum'O Neil from International Velvet. I was thinking the xbox needed a top quality Equine game and I was hoping this would quench my thirstA few of my favorite Horse quotes:
-for one to fly, you only need to take the reins
-the love for a horse is just as complicated as the love for another human being. if you never love a horse, you'll never understand
-on the back of a horse, you have paradise
-when riding a horse we leave our fear, troubles, and sadness behind on the ground
-a stubborn horse walks behind you, an inpatient friend walks in front of you, but a noble companion walks beside you
-one can get into a car and see what man has made, but one must get on a horse to see what God has made.
This game will make you feel all of the above and more Gameplay:
This seems fine. Even the more skillful of player can play with one hand. (No I'm not making another Hannah Montana euphemism) This game literally allows you to play one handed. Try to use this skill as much as possible, this will save any stressful situations come the professional run.
A vast choice of Horses are available ranging from a Donkey at Blackpool beach to Shergar. The choices the game gives you in this regard is immense.
Disk 2 contains a simulation mode where you can breed your own horses. This is also a good meeting place for you and your online friends to meet up and groom your horses together. Please note that you could potentially waste many hours in those stables trying to breed the perfect horse.Normal Mode:
Ease yourself in this, collect as many of the nasty collectibles, try to master the one handed technique and try and do some of the grindy shit before your next playthrough. On your way you should win all the races with a little luck.Professional Mode:
Ok I'm not going to lie, this is tough. What this game asks you to do is to combine the one handed technique that you should have learnt in normal mode and................................................................
Press the A button. With this in mind, you should now be well on your way to 1k.Dressage:
This is a mode where you train your horse to become a ballet dancer, gently guide your horse around the course in straight lines whilst looking good. Very addictive, only recommended for the hardcore though.Summary:
A decent game but I wouldn't pay anything over $100 for it. Yes you heard me, this is the only game in history that actually increases in value over time.
Gamerscore wise, don't let the ratio fool you.
