Played On Windows Vista64.
As far as Horse Racing management games go on the PC, HRM 2 is pretty good, and probabaley the best one out there that i have played to date. Although there are 3 modes of play, i preferd the Horse Owner approach, managing my own stable, buying new buildings to improve my horses stats, hiring and firing staff, choosing the horses care & deciding which races to enter that suit the horses strengths.
On the management side, you get to pick the location of your stables from places like England, Ireland, USA or France for example. Then you get to pick a specific location(money permitted)within the country, where the stable will be, from 10 different places, all with advanatges/disadvanatges/neutral and varied costs. After that, you get to pick your jockys colours, and name your stable. Then its off into the World of Horse Racing management.
The games graphics are very nice, especially the 3-D races, if you decide to watch them that is, you can skip them. The audio also suits the game well i think. Overall, if you like the more serious approach to your Horse racing management games, this will suit you well, i like it allot.
