GAME INFORMATION & REVIEWS


HorseRaceGame.com

This game offers both individual and community play. It is as close to real-world racing as you're going to find. Play in tournaments to win real prizes without risking any cash whatsoever. The game also has a component that allows you to race some of the champion thoroughbreds from throughout history. Set up match races with the likes of Secretariat or Seabiscuit, or Curlin against Big Brown, or even Man O' War. You decide. The game comes with a full, interactive community for social networking with other players. Share racing secrets, racing tips or just bragging rights. The game can be as sophisticated or as simple as a user wants. The game parallels the real world of racing and gives the fan the ability to get a first-hand feel for what it's like to be a jockey or a trainer. The game has a very sophisticated tournament module that allows players to generate tournaments and invite competition from the entire community. With high-end 3D graphics and a multi-million-dollar backend and state-of-the-art web functionality, added to the fact that this racing game is completely free, it is our number one pick, by far.

Digiturf.com

A racing simulation game that allows players to purchase for real cash random-generated computer horses, train them and race them against others for real money. Though the concept of this racing game is pretty unique, expect to spend a substantial amount of money before you can possibly receive any return. Players can spend thousands of dollars in a short period of time to build their virtual racing stable. And, though the action can be pretty fast-paced, the game itself can be very frustrating because of many random factors involved. The game uses all fictional horses and does not include any real life names we would recognize.Digiturf has a direct association with RaceClub, another game that works exactly the same way. One mirrors more the European-style racing and one tries to replicate American racing. You really don't have any training control. If there is a skill component to this game, it's based on the classification of your horse once you've determined his ability. This is really a gambling game for gamblers. In fact, if you go through their community, which is basically a message board, the number one topic is a few people bragging about how much money they've won and the majority talking about how much money they've lost. You might be better off going to a Las Vegas casino. At least there you can get food comps.

StartersOrders.com

StartersOrders.com

Here you get to actually breed your virtual horses and create your own stable. The full version of the game costs about $45 US. The game has decent graphics and a small, elite following of hard-core players. This PC racing game appears to be focused toward hard-core sim fans who want to be associated with every aspect of building their fantasy world of racing. This game is not for kids and is probably suited for a more sophisticated horse fan who has an understanding to some degree of racing. Though the game does have some good features and functions, it does not offer the level of interaction, graphics and opportunity to win real cash and prizes like our first choice, HorseRaceGame.com. Good game logic. Obviously, a decent amount of effort put into the game, but it does lack a full community. No prizes offered and no real way to interact with players. It does not have a social networking component, but there are people who like this game quite a bit.

TheRacingBreed.com

TheRacingBreed.com

Run by a couple of brothers out of Las Vegas, NV, this PC game costs approximately $40. The game is a hard-core simulation game and is really focused toward the fan looking to participate at the deepest level to emulate racing. You manage your own horse stable and take your horses around the country to race them for fictitious purse prizes. The game uses all fictional horses and does not include any real life names we would recognize. This is not a game tied to a community. Players play by themselves or with other users on a single computer. The game actually comes with a betting mode that allows you to wager on the horses in the game through a fictitious betting program. Because of the poor graphics (one-dimensional), because there is no community interaction, although the game does have some good features, it is not on my recommendation list.

HorseRacingPark.com

Very similar to Digiturf. The concept is to buy a horse with real cash, training that horse, though the training routines are very limited. The skill with HorseRacingPark is to try to classify your horse correctly when placing him in races. The game has a decent 3D viewer and does provide their own virtual racing news associated with their game. You cannot be the jockey, nor can you play in private tournaments with specific groups of people or friends who may also be involved in the program. Hold onto your wallet because this game will take your money very quickly. Though I have read that some people have made and cashed out with a decent amount of money, those are few and far between. The game has a significant learning curve that can be a little frustrating at times and customer serve was not the best when we tried to reach them on several occasions. It is our opinion, and this is just our opinion, that this U.S.-based company is operating more along the lines of a gambling platform and tries to stay low-key. Although there are some aspects of the game that can be fun and exciting, overall, my money went too fast and customer service was way too slow. This is strictly an adult game and not a horse game for kids.

TrophyHorse.com

What we liked about TrophyHorse is that their presentation was the cleanest and easiest to interpret. Well-designed website, the game is inviting and gets you motivated to jump right in. You can breed your horses through virtual breeding platforms and then actually buy and sell your horses to other players. They even have auctions, which is an interesting component. TrophyHorse is a membership-fee based game and the price is quite reasonable. The horse data is presented in a clean format and easy to understand. The community, which is generally a message board, is loaded with information and members seem very eager to assist. Here you'll find members ranging from age 13 to 50. Teenage girls, teenage boys - all are welcome at TrophyHorse.com. The game's biggest downfall is that there is no visual simulation. This is completely a statistical game with no race viewer, so you actually can compare this to fantasy sports, where statistical information is the basis for the whole program. I personally enjoy watching the horses race in a 3D interface, so I was disappointed in this game for that reason. If you don't care about the visual component and cheering your horse as it goes down the stretch or watching him pass another on the far turn, then you might be interested in this game.

DerbyFever.com

DerbyFever.com

Programmed in great detail, this game has so many different aspects, the learning curve is very extensive. You can tell this game was developed by a mathematical genius with poor marketing skills. The game has very poor graphics, a sloppy presentation and user's guide, but if you have the patience and you're able to go through the complicated learning curve, this racing game attracts the most hard-core racing sim players out there. You've got every aspect of breeding, selling, racing with all types of twists and turns that, for some people make the game fun, but for some make it very convoluted and confusing. I spent a tremendous amount of time getting up-to-speed on this game and, frankly, became frustrated. The basic game is free, but additional horses require payments. The game offers no real reward value except bragging rights. There is no true interactive community, and there is no oportunity win big prizes. But, once again, if you're a hard-core sports sim fan and you've got the patience and intelligence, this might interest you. This is definitely a computer horse game for adults and maybe for those with IQs over 150.

DigitalDowns.com

DigitalDowns.com

Though the game is promoted as a free racing game, there are costs associated with it. The more you play, the more costly the game can become. This simulation game attempts to follow the real-world of racing and offers you all the features like several of the other games I mentioned. The key to DigitalDowns is breeding. They appear to have a small but dedicated following who have overcome the game's learning curve. With a limited community, the game rates average at best. Again, kind of a replication along the lines of DerbyFever with a few different twists and curves. In my opinion, the game is a little too complicated for what they provide in return.

StableKing.com

This game allows you to choose your own jockeys, breed your own horses, buy horses and actually sell horses to others. You own and manage a stable, just like some of the other thoroughbred racing games mentioned above. With all this said, the quality of the graphics were very poor and even the game presentation itself was poor. The game does feature a betting component, which I found somewhat confusing. Their community is very limited and does not really provide a social networking environment or network like a racing game should. StableKing is not the best of the racing games we reviewed.

VideoRaces.com

Not really a game - it is the opportunity for you to host a racing event or party at your home or office. They provide everything you need to emulate real world racing including the tickets, reporting system and video races. I actually attended an event that utlized VideoRaces technology. Their program includes all the major racetracks like Santa Anita, Del Mar, Churchill Downs, Gulfstream Park, Saratoga Race Course. What's fun about this program is that you could be watching races of some of the great champion horses throughout history and not even know it. They provide historic video races and the names of the horses are actually changed so true racing enthusiasts cannot recognize the horse or the possible race and have an edge over other players. If you are going to be holding a fundraiser or charity event, this is a great way to raise some additional money and bring some excitement to the crowd. They will feel like they are live at the track, making bets.

Horse Games Not Pertaining to Racing


We reviewed a lot of these games such as VirtualHorseRanch.com, HorseCity.com, Howrse.com and AVirtualHorse.com. These were great games for kids. I can see teenage girls and boys between the ages of 10 and 16 really enjoying these games. Each one had its own advantage and disadvantage. Here you can be anything from a ranch manager or farm manager to a trainer, owner, blacksmith, or any other career associated around the world of horses. You can breed your own horses, even pick their colors. You have complete control in these virtual world games. All of these games are all about community interaction and have become virtual hangouts for the horse enthusiast through the Internet. Going through these games, we notice people sharing horse pictures, horse stories, everything associated with every aspect of the horse itself. The cost of these games varies from just a few dollars a month to over $60 a year, depending upon what level of membership you're looking for. They seem to be safe places for kids to hang out and interact and talk about their favorite animal.

Summary


My name is Seth Louden and I am a horse game nut. Yes, I have been compensated by Horse Racing Simulation to review all of these games including their own. But, my compensation was not based on the results or comments. I received a fixed compensation and gave a fair, honest overview of all games associated with the horse. I actually looked at a total of 30 games, but most are not worth mentioning. I will continue to update this information from time to time as my research continues. As of this day, I can tell you that I am an active member in Horse Racing Fantasy. I like the fact that they not only try to replicate real world racing, but they have direct ties to the industry. I have personally read through over 100 testimonials that they have received. They have provided games for some of the biggest names in racing, including NYRA (New York Racing Association) with their www.BelmontStakesGame.com, Breeders' Cup, Ltd., home of the championship racing event www.BreedersCupGame.com; Hollywood Park, one of the premier racetracks in the world, www.HollywoodParkGame.com; Bloodhorse Magazine, the most recognized publication when it comes to horses and horse racing, bar none, www.BloodhorseGame.com; and many others. I love their community that has attracted some of the biggest names in racing including top jockeys and trainers. Further, I know for a fact that their game has been featured in articles on some of the sports and information websites on the Internet, including ESPN, MSNBC, CBSSportsline and others. In fact, their game was part of a program segment specifically developed for ABC's television show, Good Morning America.
