Horse Life is a game for equestrian lovers where gamers get to train their own horse and really put it through its paces. This is a real dream come true for people who have their own horse or have always wanted one. However, does Horse Life offer enough variation to satisfy other types of gamers? Read on to find out.
Are you the kind of person who enjoys spending time choosing the perfect saddle and other accessories for their real or imaginary horse? If so, this is the game for you. Players will spend a lot of time focusing on all the minute details of horse care including picking the lunch for the horse and grooming it. while these activities are rather mundane, they all need to be completed before players can actually ride their horse and the tasks are also very easy to complete, meaning that no real skill is required.
Fortunately, the dull routine does pay off after a while, and players are finally rewarded for their stamina by getting to ride their precious pony. This is actually more fun than it sounds and players who enjoy riding horses for real will get a kick out of putting the horse through its paces and teaching it new tricks.
The game starts on the day the horse is born and players get to witness the very first wobbly steps and watch as the horse grows up. Fortunately, this does not happen in real time and it is not too long before the horse is ready to be trained. Players are able to choose the colour of the horse’s coat, its breed and a range of other elements that helps to make it unique.
The game quickly skips a couple of years and players are back on the ranch with a three-year-old horse to train. The game graphics are impressive and the horse almost looks real as it trots around the field and tacks on a hurdle for the very first time.
Horse Life is the ideal game for people who love horses. However, you really have to be a fan of horses to get along with this game. For non-horsey people the concept could be rather dull and apart from training your horse nothing much happens in the game
