    I wish I had played [it] before I played "Gallop Racer." In almost every regard, G1 is a superior product with much more depth and sophistication. [July 2003, p.59]
  2. Like "Gallop Racer 2003," this is a darn good horseracing game. However, I can't see gamers having more than one filly in their stables, and this one loses by a neck. [June 2003, p.105]
  3. You actually control things like the bit and the horse's lead leg in turns. [July 2003, p.78]
  4. Where "Gallop Racer" rules is in its tutorial, which eases you onto the ol' dirt runway. But where it fails is its lack of an immersive Career mode, which is exactly what makes Jockey such a surprisingly worthwhile experience. [June 2003, p.105]
  5. Technically competent, G1 Jockey 3 lacks the spark that made "Gallop Racer 2003" so much fun. [July 2003, p.33]

    An interesting if ultra-niche title, and while Tecmo's Gallop Racer 2003 provides a larger and more entertaining overview of the sport of kings, G1 Jockey 3 provides a considerably deeper racing experience.

    Racing is the primary focus here and the game does a good job at translating the complexities that go into maneuvering a horse through a tense race.

    G1Jockey 3 is an excellent game and is far superior than "Gallop Racer 2003". Even for the novice horse racer, it is easy to play if you use the training mode. I like the idea that as you get better, other owners will seek you out to ride their horses. Also neat that there are steeplechase races. I bought both G1Jockey3 and Gallop Racer 2003 and G1 Jockey 3 gets much more playing time from me. Expand
