I always like to start a review with something positive about the game, however this one left me struggling a bit. The best i could come up with was that by hitting start the cutscenes can be skipped and the 1000GS is very easy to get.

That said this is a truly terrible game in every respect. The horse does actually look at bit like a horse, but the people are much less convincing, the graphics look like they came from the early days of N64 rather than using the might of a 360.

The sound is annoying and repetitive, the commentator has two stock phrases that are repeated ad nauseum. The phrases themselves are not very exciting anyway, but the repetition is truly horrible.

The games and competitions themselves are also very repetitive and not difficult. On Amateur level the horse even jumps the fences by itself! There are achievements for completing on Amateur and Professional (which is incidently not difficult either) and these don't stack, which means after suffering it once, you then have to suffer it a 2nd time to claim all of the achievements (the games can largely be skipped the 2nd time around tho).

My daughter is 6 and likes horses - she hated it
I'm 33, a GS addict and am completely indifferent to horses - i hated it too

This is one solely for the GS addicts - 1,000GS in about 6-8 hours!

Is there a no star score? Truly the worst game i've ever played. AVOID!!
1.0

akute"Yeah, my daughter was playing on my card again."

You may use that line if anyone asks. And my god have mercy on your soul.

SuperschrubberI don´t belive you. You just want to keep us from getting the 1000 GS!

Mr J1mKnock yourself out. The 1000GS is easy, but please come back and tell me how much you hated doing it when your done!

Mr J1mUsed to say that! Now i've come out and admitted i'm a GS whore, i don't bother any more. Although Hannah Montana really was her, although i finished it up! It's only marginally better than this!

OfficerBarbradywhy the hell is the cheapest online price do damn high for this game?
Posted by OfficerBarbrady on 31 Jan 11 at 23:13
Mr J1mThere's still a demand amongst those gamerscore whores for a quick and easy 1000, so the price stays high. I'd recommend renting through Lovefilm or Blockbuster tho, definitely not worth buying.
