  1. Delivers a more focused, more satisfying experience that seems less like an abstract interpretation of horse racing and more like the real thing.
  2. 70
    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.
  3. 60
    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.
  4. The races are slow and one mistake can mean the difference between first and last, but that’s the addiction, and whipping your horse to a slight, nosed victory is a mighty satisfying feeling.

    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]
  6. PSM Magazine

    Technically competent, G1 Jockey 3 lacks the spark that made "Gallop Racer 2003" so much fun. [July 2003, p.33]
  7. With a little more pizzazz added to its robust simulation mode (dopey translated dialogue notwithstanding), the presentation of G1 Jockey 3 would have placed it on par with Tecmo’s horse sim.
