Championship Jockey G1 Jockey & Gallop Racer 

 

Horse racing games do not do well in America. I purchased Champion Jockey G1 Jockey & Gallop Racer to see if I could figure out why. This game is on the PS3 and Wii. I tested the former version. Champion Jockey G1 Jockey & Gallop Racer can be played with two Wands or with the controller. It does not matter which you choose - expect confusion to ensue.

Champion Jockey G1 Jockey & Gallop Racer is a hard sports game. Racing has to be done a certain way to succeed. Horses can be burned out if you do it wrong. You know what the result is then don’t you? A last place finish. In fact expect numerous last place finished in Champion Jockey G1 Jockey & Gallop Racer.

The difficult to understand and execute controls are one of the problems with Champion Jockey G1 Jockey & Gallop Racer. Another one is the lackluster graphics. This home console game is ugly looking. Its like the Wii version was ported to the PS3 with little to no graphical improvements. Plus Champion Jockey G1 Jockey & Gallop Racer would not push the Wii to its limits either.

My next issue with Champion Jockey G1 Jockey & Gallop Racer is the menu screens and choices. This home console game starts players out by asking them their preferences. It explains the differences to you. It then asks you many of the same questions before each race. Why? The game told me where to change my defaults, so why keep making me choose?

The music in Champion Jockey G1 Jockey & Gallop Racer is enjoyable. I am not sure why the default choice before each race is to turn it off. The tutorial explains all kinds of things about horse racing and how to do it. Champion Jockey G1 Jockey & Gallop Racer will also offer honest criticism as to what you did wrong. It always refers you back to the control tutorials if you are not doing something right.

Champion Jockey G1 Jockey & Gallop Racer is one of the most difficult games I have ever played. The rules are a long list of confusing things. The controls are so involved it will make you want to sit down and rest for a bit. I believe this is why horse racing games fail so miserably in the United States of America.
