This game is brilliant.
It is about a girl who inherits a stud farm once her Grandmother dies. I had already gotten the Pippa Funnell: Take the Reins on PC, and I bought this too judged on how much I loved that game.
Well, this didn't let me down. I couldn't stop playing it. The challenges are fun, and one in particular is very testing! I loved doing them, and I have completed the game, but not easily. There were many competitions and challenges I had to repeat, because I failed them.
The story is imaginative, fun, and not easy, yet not terribly difficult.
Caring for your horse is good fun, and so is riding it.
Your decisions count. You choose what to build on your stud farm to expand and repair it.
The stud farm is beautiful.
It is a brilliant game!
The graphics are not the best, but still, it was made a while ago. For instance, when the characters talk, their mouths do not move. For some reason, this annoys me hugely.
The horses gaits look a bit odd, especially the trot and canter.
You have to ride quite a long way to get to the practise arenas for the different events, which i find slightly boring.
The countryside which you ride through to get to places such as the village, a rich man's house, and arenas, is not the most exciting. It is basically a track through fields, a couple of bridges which you do not even get to ride across (you just stand and press Spacebar, then whoopee, you're over) and some trees.
If you ask me, the cons aren't bad ones at all, and I struggled to think of any. But basically, the pros are excellent. I haven't regretted buying this game for a minute. It truly is an excellent game. BUY IT!
