Summary: After playing this game on the PC now on the playstation (at a friends house.) I was so suprised on the first bit of the game you are leaving home on a train (video clip), then when you get off the train there is a BIG struck of lightning that hit the stable, then the man calls out "MY HORSE IS IN THERE", his horse is a VERY POPULAR horse, so you haveto risk your life for the horses in the stable, then when you free the horse it run's out and knocks you over, then there...
Summary: I bought this game after playing the first one on PC. Take the reins is a vast improvement, and is really exciting. I thought it was great that you travel all over the world, and being able to hack out is a great feature. I thought the locations were well designed and exciting to explore, and i would highly recommend it. However, i'm disappointed to say that i did have difficulties at times with running the game.
Excerpt: I got this game as a Christmas present and I thought great I love horse games, but about three quarters of the way through the game there was a glitch and I wasn’t able to play it any further. I found this quite disappointing. In this game you get to train, look after your favourite horse and build a relationship with it. You also get to travel from Scotland to Morocco and to the United States, to compete in competitions.
Pros: Get to explore many different areas
Cons: There's a glitch that came three quarters of the way through the game .
Excerpt: What a fantastic game for anyone interested in horses. As far as quality and value for money goes i give it A* I played on this game for hours, however I would not recommend it to very young children as I found it quite difficult and there are times when you must remember what you have learnt to give your horse the correct care-I found writing down what you read in the library very useful.
Pros: Lots of things to do, exciting challenges, good graphics
Summary: This game was a vast improvement on the first PF game. The levels are quite difficult as you progress but the adventure side line games are fun but never that difficult to master. Keep practising. The last competition in Scotland was quite hard for me but I kept at it and eventually managed to get through to the final competition.
Summary: I bought this game on Thursday November 9th 2006. I had played all week until yesterday.(15th november) I was on a level where you have to race a man in morocco and You have to press the square button to make the horse move. No matter how many times i did this the horse just wouldn't move. I tried out this button on a different game and it worked perfectly. I am taking the game back and buying the game for PC instead. I had almost completed it as well.
