4.0 out of 5 stars Best so far 6 May 2007
By Silven
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This is by far the best Pippa Funnell game so far. It continues the story from the first game, with you playing as a young girl at a new riding school run by the heroin from the first game, Jade. The plot is quite simillar, but different enough to be fun and engaging, and can be quite challenging at times.

Here's what it's all about: You are a girl who has remarkable abbilities at horse riding, and has been sent to a horse riding school to improve further and then become a champion. Throughout the game you play at varous different places, and compete in three different criteria - dressage, show jumping and cross country.

The game has improved it's graphics emensly, and the way in which you do dressage has changed. It is really fun, and I would strongly recommend it. The only bad thing is that sometimes it is not clear what to do, and can become quite frustrating. Also, loading the game at the beginning is very tiresome, it actually takes me about five tries to get it running, following each I have to re-boot the computer.

But once it is running, this is a marvoulous game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Allround, 4 stars. 3 July 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I must admit I did love this game. It does have good graphics which are much better than the first Pippa Funnell. I haven't had the chance to play the second as a few friends told me it wasn't that good. But I caught onto the story line and I think Pippa Funnell 3 is good to carry on from that. I like the eye and lips movements too, it makes it more realistic.

And also how there are different places, and breeds for that matter. I also thing Ubisoft have done well with the whole new way of jumping and Dressage. Personally, I love the Dressage and the whole timetable layout too. And the foal, it is lovely!

I hope they bring out another Pippa Funnell game. And hopefully with more hacking and simple tasks like driving the lorry to shows, and actually having the whole showing atmosphere. Also things like cleaning tack and washing a horse instead of showering. And ponies too! Who said it had to just be horses? There are lots of ways in which they could make the next game amazing. And Ubisoft if your reading this, make sure you give me an e-mail and let me share my ideas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Pippa Funnell game by far 6 Aug 2007
By Ella
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Being 15 and horse mad i really could not wait to get my hands on this. I had no problems at all installing, like the pippa funnell 2, and the best bit was the game never crashed once unlike the number 2. The graphics again have got alot better and the horse moves just like a real horse.Im glad the characters lips moves when they talk and they show different expresions unlike the other 2 games. I loved the all the tasks, and im glad that some were quite hard as it made the gam last longer. for some reason all the pippa funnell games have a love story, maybe something different next time? overall i loved this game its perfect for any horse lover if u ride or not.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pippa funnell 3 7 Mar 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have just played the game from start to finish and the game ran smoothly right through, no bugs in this one! if you played take the reins you will know what i mean. I did have some freeze probs at the beginning with the game but when i changed the graphics to low in the options menu that corrected it. On to the game....I reckon this game is by far the best one in the pippa funnell collection...the challanges are more fun and the fact that the characters mouths move when they talk makes the game more realistic. However putting the age to 3 plus is stretching it, i reckon anyone 10 and over would benefit more from this game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Starforce copy protection 1 Jun 2007
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
To get Starforce working on Vista (for Pippa Funnell 2), you have to download an updated version from their website. Install it and it will ask you to put Andrea Lederman disk 1 into the drive, but it really means Pippa Funnell, so do that and it should work (I guess Andrea Ledermann is from a German version?). It will sometimes fail, but reboot and you should be ok. I managed to get it working for my daughter this way. For PF3, as someone says in another review, Insert Disk 3 (instead of Disk 1) and start the game from the desktop shortcut. Copy protection like this really annoys me as it only inconveniences genuine purchasers - illegal copiers can easily get round it with a crack.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cool! 13 May 2007
By Ray
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is really fun, although I havn't even finished the second day yet because I just bought it...
Although so far I would strongly reccomend it to anyone who likes adventures, horses and just lots of challenges!
The graphics really surprised me in a good way because they are really good. The people's mouths move when they speak and it looks better.
On the main menu you can train just for fun but it doesn't effect anything in the game, except when you choose what clothes you wear in training those are the same clothes you have in the game.
I thought dressage is really hard and I can't seem to get a higher score than 4.8, I think. But, show-jumping and Cross-country is really fun and challenging.
When your doing horse care I love mucking-out (surprise!). It is so realistic, although since I've only done it once it could get boring. Still, don't think I'm crazy saying I like mucking-out in real life, but in the game it's cool.
OK, bye. lol
