I've played all the previous G1 Jockey games, so had high expectations for this.
I think the graphics look a lot better, horses look very realistic even to the point of the various shades of colours and sizes (you can get large and small horses although this is totally random)
The initial training you get when you first start a game is a lot better and for someone who has never played the game series before it would be very easy to pick it up. I found it a useful refresher having had played the previous games. You get practice races too. The only annoying thing I've found so far is that I've not worked out how to get onto the tutorial to go back and practice some of the things I've learnt.
The jumping races are great, you get more variety of fences, and like real life, you only get one season a year.
The extra abilities that have come from the original gallop racer are quite useful, like sretch bursts. Although some are negative problems, but some are a bit ridicilous. For instance, if you've got a good jumping horse, why do they have a negative ability 'don't like landing?!'
You can race on dirt and turf, and there are a good variety of race tracks inc a japanese one which does night races.
So all in all, a good game to have if you liked the previous G1 jockey series.

This game is pretty complicated, there is a lot of text to read and you can't really just skip over it and start racing. I bought this game as I have played Mary King's game for Wii and some show jumping games on Xbox, this pales in comparison. It is quite good once you start racing but all the detail about racing with different managers at different stables, and then breeding and training your own horse is way to complicated and no where near as much fun to do as it sounds.

Overall I would say this game is too complicated for children and as an adult, unless you have hours of time to spend reading all the game info, it's not really a fun pastime.

It gets really fun with Kinect though it's difficult to find the instructions for using Kinect if it wasn't started first.

I've played all the G1 jockey games and this one still lives up to the hype. Very enjoyable with plenty of competitions provided from apprentice to pro, you are able to make the game as easy or as difficult as you wish by changing both playing levels and controls. This can also be done during play, so as you become more experienced with the game you can adjust the difficulty without having to start a new game, brilliant. If you have an interest in this style of game then give it a shot, you won't be disappointed.

Kinect interface is not very good. Certainly not as sophisticated as the newer Kinect games. Maybe they offer an update online if you have the patience to persevere.

Its ok for the price. The game is hard to set up, I have to start every race using the 360 control then quickly drop it and continue using body movements.
