Summary: If you are an avid horse racing fan and gamer, then this is an excellent choice to your collection. Although it's not as acade oriented as its predecessor, this game still has a lot of fun to offer the jockey in all of us. The graphics in this title are superb. They're clear, colorful, and move along crisply with the on screen action. This game also adds the option to be a spectator and place bets on the selected races.
Pros: Graphics, Never ending unlockables
Cons: Lack of horses to buy, The removal of the ranking system
Summary: Ok - I was looking forward to this game - especially after reading some of the reviews - and yes, the game is addicting to some point. The graphics are great, horses are detailed. The sound is not super, but for those looking for a good Horse management/racing game, it's not a big deal. On with the game - the 'Racing' part of the game is fun - but after a little while it loses it's fun factor.
