Starters Orders 6 Horse Racing reviews and comments

Nice game that lacks depth but that is promising for eventual new opus. This game would probably win in interest if it was not possible to reload the game when you lose all its money on a bet. c is too easy to earn money in this way and it is frankly too tempting to have the will to not do it. I am soon a thousand hours on this game and always enjoy playing it from time to time. Good sustainability/price ratio.

Category: irritation and head-taking Simulator. Annoyed me after 45 minutes, i.e. 3 beginnings of games abandoned ragily. Will I insist on the risk of losing the refund? The game is perhaps a good simulation very complete, but the guys who did it are part of those CADS who think that any Beijing without experience of their series (6th version) will understand immediately what they put 10 years to learn and master, in an environment that would scare a teacher of canine physics. To make it simple: no tutorial for a game as complex as a Soviet gas plant, filled with tables in police 3.5 that eroding the eyes. In short, buying this game, I bet on the wrong horse, Hua HA HA! To sum up in English: irritation Simulator 2016. Irritates my brain, irritates my eyes, irritates my ALT-F4 combo.

Finally a rather solid game of managing a racing stable from horse racing Manager 2. But I will still have to wait to have the game that makes you dream... Bad points:-no trot races (hitted/ridden), damage to the most popular discipline of the racing world...-management remained in the embryonic State: you have a stable, always the same, that you place in the possible areas of the world without that this does not affect anything other than transportation costs. You buy all the buildings (without making any choice other than the order in which you buy). Here...-the birth of foals. That's where we'd like to vibrate. The dream of a crack born of modest origins, the expectation around a line of stars, disappointments, hopes... And realism: no, not all fleas have the level for a career was it modest as in this SIM. -Potential and earliness. The nothingness. Races for 2 years do not share between future champions and early horses, the precocity does not exist in this game if not in the juvenile endurance which affects only the number of races possible to two years. -Horses of too high quality buy the first months to claim unrealistic. After a few months, these classics or semi-classics no longer attend this level. -Jockeys and apprentices without apparent distinction. Choose its name from the choices offered... The good points:-a program of races of the claimants to the groups rather well built. -Despite all its flaws this game is without competition on the market so far. -The great philosopher Pat Evra said that if we promise you caviar and we serve you tuna in Catalan you have the right to be disappointed. Yes but if there is nothing else to eat?
