This review is from: Lucinda Green's Equestrian Challenge (PC CD) (Video Game)When I first heard if this game, I thought that it would be alright, but not as good as others. I bought it from Amazon and installed it in a matter of minutes instead of hours, that impressed me. Then, I turned on the game and was amazed by the graphics...they were very realistic, just how they are supposed to be. I made my own profile, you can have multiple profiles, and choose and customise a charactor that sometimes looks a lot like you. The music may I comment, is lovely, really...horsey? Nice anyway. The horses are DIVINE, they are so beautiful, and the colours and markings are very good. You can even get markings on the horses romp...
The training is very fun, at first it is very challenging because of all the rules and the horse is not that good a competitor, getting used to the controls doesn't take long either because they are 'w,a,s,d' instead of arrow keys. Showjumping is basically following a mark on the ground but it is easier said than done, same as the cross-country, it is difficult to get into the time limit. Dressage is the hardest though because of all the arrow keys...very fun though.
Overall very good game and worth every penny!
